It was a long day but we had enough time at Waitomo and the Agrodome but a little rushed at the geysers. The guided tour at the geysers was excellent. The lunch that was provided was good and the sandwich on the way to Auckland was also good. Overall it was great value for the money.

Our driver was great but the tour itself was really disappointing. There was no hotel pick up and we had to walk to Hobson Street 102 which is the big bus terminal. It was a full 60 seat bus so at the Waitomo Caves they had to split us up into 2 groups and we went through in a rush. Next stop at the Agrodome we spent a long time on a truck train feeding sheep and alpacas. The final stop at Rotorua was much too short as we wasted much time waiting for the Maori Cultural Show to begin. The show itself had not much to do with Maori Culture. Making the visitors behaving like drunken clowns was not much appreciated. Not enough with this the "show" lasted forever and we were running out of time for the bus departure. We had 15 min left for to see the geyser and the mud pools. No way to walk the circuit or to enjoy the beauty of this place. Very disappointing for this should have been one of the highlights of the tour. All in all not worth the amount of money we have payed.

We thought that each of the 3 locations we stopped and toured were great -- Waitomo Glow Worm Cave, Agrodome and Rotorua! Since we had a short time to visit New Zealand this was a great introduction to your beautiful country! It was great seeing the countryside and the weather was perfect! Everyone at each of the locations could not have been more professional and informative. However, the bus driver (Rachel) was a little over the top with various comments and opinions. This is the reason that we only gave the experience 4 stars.

Excellent tour, and the driver was really great. Real nice english accent. It is a pity that natural luminescence is presented as a common thing. That place deserves a tutorial about chemiluminescence, showing how the worms emit light and the chemistry involved. I couldn't find any picture with the worms glowing, or about their origin and behavior. It could be a nice chemistry class.
