Overview

Highlights / General details
Set off on your Waitomo and Rotorua day tour from Auckland. Travel down the main southern highway through small rural townships steeped in early pioneer history. See New Zealand’s largest dairy and sheep farming province. Travel the outskirts of Hamilton City via small farming settlements towards the King Country, home of the Maori monarchy.

Take in the beauty of the world famous Waitomo Glow Worm Caves on a guided tour. Experience the beauty of impressive limestone rock formations and twinkling glowworms. Your tour ends with a short boat ride along an underground river into a cavern lit up with thousands of tiny glow worm lights. Departing Waitomo, enjoy a delicious lunch as you travel through Cambridge to Rotorua.

New Zealand’s highest city, Rotorua sits 305 meters (1000 feet) above sea level, located inside the rim of a volcanic crater - an area of great geothermal activity.

Once in Rotorua take a thrilling ride on a ZORB. Your tour includes the ZYDRO experience, which is the classic ZORB ride with some water thrown in (don't worry - the water is warm during winter and cool during summer). After your downhill adventure you will rejoin your Gray Line coach in time for your Maori and geothermal experience at Te Puia.

Travel along the Rotorua lakefront and through the Government Gardens, large formal gardens which house the historic Tudor-style museum and the Blue Baths. Arriving at Te Puia, enter the sacred marae (meeting house) for a Maori Concert. Surrounded by carvings of the ancestors, you'll be treated to beautiful harmonies, poi dance, the famous haka (war dance), and tititorea (stick dance).

Inside the Maori Arts & Crafts Institute, you'll see artists at work creating traditional wood carvings and weaving. The Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley is home to the famous Pohutu geyser, as well as fumaroles, and boiling mud pools. If time permits, take the opportunity to wander through the nocturnal kiwi house.

At the end of your Te Puia experience, step back on board and take in the stunning New Zealand scenery. The coach will arrive in Auckland at approximately 8:15pm, with a complimentary hotel drop-off included in your tour.
