Sometimes you just want the hard work to be done for you, so joining up for one of the many tours in Rotorua, makes exploring the region easy. Walking, coach and boat tours are there to make sure you see everything on offer.
Rotorua Tours can take many forms. There are companies who will pick you up from your accommodation then take you on a journey around the geothermal attractions in the area. Nature and eco tour operators will take you into the forests and parks of Rotorua. Other options include walking tours around the CBD, concentrating on the historic buildings around Government Gardens. This is a really fascinating insight into not just the Maori history of the city, but the colonial heritage, too. One of the most popular guided tours includes access to reconstructed Maori villages, followed by a traditional Maori feast. If you're going to 'do' the Maori experience while you're in New Zealand, then Rotorua is the place to do it.
