If you want the perfect guide in Rotorua, choose Pete Otto. He is knowledgeable, flexible, and friendly. His touring van was his office and it was filled with photos, brochures, descriptions and even snacks. We knew we were in the hands of a professional.
We had limited time to tour Rotorua because our cruise ship docked at Tauranga, which is about an hour’s journey to the thermal attractions. Pete met us at our ship, and together we decided on a perfect itinerary. We toured Tauranga briefly, went to a kiwi fruit orchard, and lunched with locals in the Rotorua mall. After that Pete took us to his home (how is that for a personal touch) to meet his lovely wife, Rica, and she showed us her fabulous garden. We never knew hydrangeas could grow so high! Next we toured the Living Maori Village where the villagers use the hot water and steam for everyday cooking and bathing. Finally Pete joined us in the Polynesian Spa where we experienced thermal bathing first hand. Pete of course had towels and hats – were we surprised? Not at all. Pete thinks of everything. All of this in one day and we made it back to our ship in plenty of time. Thank you Pete. You are an ace!
