What people are saying about Te Puia

An excellent day trip with plenty of time at both Wai-o-tapu & Te Puia geothermal parks. Tour guide Grant is a lovely man & an excellent tour guide. He was very informative along the drive and in Rotorua and he was very careful to accommodate everyone's needs while also making sure we were at the geyser Pohutu in plenty of time to watch it errupt. There was plenty of time at both parks and a lovely hangi buffet lunch at Te Puia overlooking Pohutu. Beautiful views of Lake Rotorua on the return trip. Grant also made great time on the return trip even though he had to make a detour to avoid a traffic issue. I highly recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful time! FlexiTours was highly organized and super punctual. All 3 sites were amazing and and the lunch buffet was excellent quality. Although, it was a long day, we really enjoyed chatting with our driver/tour guide (Mr. Kelly). He was very professional, personable, and highly knowledgable. He definitely gets a 5*!!!
