One day in Rotorua! I cannot believe you're only coming here for one day. What are you thinking?
That's what sometimes happens though. It's a toss-up between what to include or cut, especially if you're travelling throughout New Zealand. Poor you, I can totally relate to that particular dilemma.
If you want to capture the essence of Rotorua in the least amount of time then a medley of tours would be the best way to go.
At least with tours you can sit back, relax and take in the sights. There is no worry about traffic and finding your way which also saves on time.
Following are links to a small selection of tours that will give you a good insight into this most fabulous city of ours. Have fun now.
Two tours are included here which will have you going from 7.25am until about 9.30pm. You will see the quintessential Rotorua including Māori Culture, geysers and mud pools, an interactive sheep show, the museum, the Buried Village and more.
If learning about our thermal is your buzz, this full day tour is tailor-made for you. Waiotapu and Waimangu Volcanic Valley fascinate with eruptions, mud pools and boiling hot springs. This is followed by a visit to the Blue & Green Lakes, the Buried Village and our famous volcano Mt Tarawera which was responsible for the Buried Village.
