We had an amazing day touring Wai-O-Tapu and Waimangu. Our shuttle was on time and well organized. Our guide, Akika, was incredible. As we were visiting during the off-season and were the only family on his shuttle he took us to a few extra spots along the way, some of which were the highlight...
I thought we were just paying for a drive to a thermal destination so I was bowled over when our driver started his super informative and entertaining description of the landscape we passed and even pulled over for special photo ops. Akira you are fabulous!! Thank you for a wonderful day out!
At Waimangu things are organised really well and even though a couple of paths were closed due to flooding, they have shuttles with really friendly drivers to get you around in good time. The boat trip was absolutely brilliant and you must add it on if you can!
