Trent picked us up for our half day Eco geothermal tour of the Rotorua area. Our ride out to the park was so fascinating due to Trent's knowledge of the area, the Maori culture and his great personality. He was an excellent guide through all the geothermal area of the boiling mud, mineral lakes, water and rock features telling us... More

I was part of the all day tour with Huru as our guide. Huru was so knowledgeable about the geological aspects of Rotorua as well as the history of the Maori. After a day on the bus, it was nice to be out in nature & getting some exercise and fresh (though a bit smelly) air. I cannot recommend this... More

I have travelled all over the world and Trent may be the best tour guide I ever had. He was knowledgable about History, Culture, and the Land. I learned more about New Zealand in one tour than all the tours I had been on prior! Fantastic! Ray Kloss

The owner of the tour company was very congenial and knowledgeable and did a great job of showing us the thermal and volcanic features of the area. He has a college degree in the field, and he very skillfully showed us the highlights, explaining history and modern ramifications of the eco thermal areas around Rotorua.

A fantastic half day trip with a very knowledgeable guide, Trent. We had the convenience of hotel pick-up and drop-off. Trent made the tour informative and so much fun – proud of the Maori heritage, knowledgeable on Rotorua’s geothermal wonders, flora, fauna and history and great sense of humor. We visited two thermal parks (Wai O Tapu and Waimangu Valley)... More

Make sure you do not miss this tour when you travel to Rotorua! Trent was our guide, and he his knowledge of the area and scientific specifics of the geothermal springs was exceptional. He was also very funny, which made for a very fun and educational morning.
