Tour Reviews

The Rotorua Morning Sights with Skyline Gondola tour was a great tour with a lot of variety. My wife and I saw a lot of different things (Te Puia Maori cultural center w/ geyser and more, a sheep shearing demonstration, and the Rainbow Springs wildlife park) in just a single morning! We added on the Skyline gondola ride and lunch buffet- we noticed that several other travelers decided during the tour to add this option as well. We got some great pictures at the top of the gondola, and we enjoyed sampling many different local and international cuisines. Overall, I recommend this tour for those who want to fit a lot of different Rotorua experiences into a single day.
Overall Tour Rating

Very good guides and excellent meal. It would have been nice to have had time to try the luge.
Overall Tour Rating

We took a half day morning sights tour with Skyline Gondola which included the Agrodome, Te Puia and Rainbow Springs. It felt pretty rushed at Te Puia as we did that first and had a set show time at the Agrodome. The Agrodome show was great. The Rainbow Springs was average. Not all too interesting. Overall, we would have loved more time at Te Puia. We were given tickets to the Gondola with a pickup time which allowed for 2 hours at the top. We did 5 runs on the luge and again felt very rushed for the pickup time. We would have enjoyed more time at the top with enough time for the luge. Overall, this was a well run tour.
