A great way to see some of the best sights in Rotorua - Wai-O-Tapu and Waimangu. Trent's knowledge and passion for the areas visited and the history of the area and the people was second to none. Highly recommended!!

There is so much to see in Rotorua that unless you are going to stay for a week or so the best way to go is with a guide and they don't come any better then Elite and in particular Trent. From being picked up on time at our door to drop off where we wanted it was a superbly interesting day. Yes at times we could have stayed at one place or the other for a while (an hour or 2 in our case) but to fit in what we did, all entries included is a great deal. Trent can answer any question posed with humour and eloquence, his knowledge of both history and geothermals is vast and his delivery ensures an informative and entertaining day. Good luck Trent and thank you for a great day!

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful morning tour with Huru as our guide and guru. We expected the scenery to be spectacular, which it was and more. Huru's commentary bought this landscape to life and we could feel how proud he was of his culture and his country.
We still play the video's we took that day,they are just beautiful.

I had a very good tour when I was in Rotorua with Elite Adventures. The guide was very friendly and prepared and could pass to us lots of interesting facts and information about the places we were visiting. It's a very well organized and dedicated tour company, which works whit small groups, so that everyone can enjoy it the most! If you go to Rotorua and wish to do a good tour, I strongly reccomend Elite Adventures!
