It's an opportunity to learn about Maori history, customs, and traditions new and old, with guided visits to Te Puia cultural centre, a spectacular geyser, and the sunning Lake Okareka area.

Enjoy pick-up from your Rotorua hotel and drive through the town towards your first stop, with your knowledgeable guide sharing stories about various sights as you travel. Arrive at Te Puia and visit a wood-carving school, arts and crafts gallery, and weaving display, gaining insight into the important role art plays in Maori culture. Your visit to the thermal village of Whakarewarewa also lets you marvel at boiling mud pools and Pohutu, New Zealand's largest geyser.

Continue Rotorua's lakefront area and Government Gardens to learn more about Maori history. Finish your day with a visit to the pristine and tranquil lakes that make up New Zealand's amazing volcanic region. Breath-taking sights of Lake Okareka and Lake Tarawera make for a perfect way to complete your experience before hassle-free transport back to your hotel.
