Following a 7:30am pickup from the Sky City coach stop (Hotel pick ups will be earlier) Please check with your provider, travel by air-conditioned coach into the beautiful Waikato region to begin your 12.5-hour tour. First, spin through King’s Country to the mystical Waitomo Caves with your guide. Walk and paddle by boat though the underground cave system, and marvel at the shimmering lights of thousands of tiny glowworms clinging to the cavern walls.

Enjoy lunch on route through the heart of the central North Island to Rotorua, where mighty geysers and bubbling mud pools dominate the geothermal landscapes. On arrival, watch a traditional Maori performance and gain insight into New Zealand’s ancient culture.

Afterward, visit the Agrodome — a working New Zealand farm — and perhaps help to feed the deer, llamas, sheep, and maybe even cattle. See a live sheep-shearing demonstration and a sheep dog trial, and experience life in rural New Zealand.

Alternatively, opt for a visit to the Skyline Gondola and travel high over Rotorua for sweeping views of the geothermal scenery. Take a walk on one of the nature trails or ride the luge (own expense). If you don’t have a head for heights, perhaps upgrade your tour for a tranquil spa experience in the shallow alkaline rock pools at the Polynesian spa. Relax mind and body in the warm waters, and enjoy calming lake views surrounded by native New Zealand flora and fauna.

In the afternoon, enjoy a traditional Maori cultural performance at Te Puia Marae and experience one of Rotorua's most popular attractions — the Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve and Maori Arts and Crafts Institute.

When your time at Te Puia Marae comes to an end, return in comfort to your Auckland hotel where your tour will come to an end at approximately 08:10pm.
