One of the best organized trips I've ever been on! Everything ran on time, and when my husband and I were super impressed by how well we were looked after by everyone. Even when there was a change in schedule the staff organized it all in the background so my husband and I didn't have to worry about anything. The staff went above and beyond to make sure that we were looked after. My greatest fear on these types of trips is that I'll be forgotten by the tour bus, but this never happened. I easily could have spent more time in each of the places we stopped, but I was okay with this quicker pace as it meant we got to see more of the highlights. The only complaint my husband and I had was on the trip home we were picked up at a later spot than the majority of the tour group those who did the one day trip instead of the two day trip and remained on the same bus all day, and by that point the other guests had spread out across all the remaining seats, meaning that we were forced to sit apart. On the way out from Auckland, our bus driver had asked single travelers to sit together to allow couples and families seats together, but the bus driver on the way home not only refused, but started yelling at the person who asked her to do this, which put guests in the awkward spot of either having to ask other guests to move to a different seat, or splitting up for the drive home. A small annoyance amidst a wonderful trip, and I felt that particular bus driver was the exception rather than the rule. I would definitely book a tour with Viator again. I was very impressed with how well organized everything was.
We really enjoyed this 2 day tour to see so many sights in New Zealand. We only had a few days in New Zealand, so this was the best way to make the most of our time there. Everything was well coordinated for us in our itinerary and we were surprised that this tour is really a compilation of several separate tours/experiences with different guides/buses/groups of people on each part of the trip. I was glad that I had printed out the overall itinerary ahead of time so we had a good idea about the sequence of events and timing. At one point we called the Great Sights phone number with a question about a bus pick-up time and they were very helpful and responsive. Each part of this tour was incredible! The pick-up and drop off in Auckland was easy and the coach bus was comfortable with gorgeous views of the rolling green hills dotted with sheep and cattle. On the first busride we also enjoyed the informative commentary about New Zealand. The glowworm cave tour was fascinating and definitely a unique experience. The duck boat tour was a fun way to view the lakes of Rotorua. That evening we really enjoyed visiting the Tamaki Maori Village where we learned a lot about Maori culture, had a fantastic buffet meal lots of meats, seafood, veggies, desserts, and loved the performances as well as the very entertaining busdriver Mark! Mark had everyone on the bus laughing and singing along with him to all kinds of songs. He was like a stand-up comic and so talented at impressions/accents! That night our accommodations were great enjoyed the heated pool and the next day we had another busy day full of interesting and fun experiences. The tour of the geothermal lands of Te Puia geysers, hot springs, mudpools, the sheep demonstration at the Agrodome, the tour of the bird sanctuary at Rainbow Springs Nature Park, and the tour of Hobbiton were all wonderful. We highly recommend this tour!
