        A great day!

        Our guide was excellent! The experience itself was one of a kind. Because of the distance from Auckland, it was a late night when we got back to our B&B. On the way home, the driver found a spot to allow us to try to see the Southern Cross, as requested. All over, a great day!

        Kia Ora John and Katherine, Thank you very much for your lovely comments and we are very pleased to hear that you had a wonderful day travelling with ExperienceKart from Auckland to Rotorua to experience the Te Pa Tu evening cultural experience and also enjoyed the southern cross on the way back! We look forward to hosting you again in the near future! Wishing you safe travels and kindest regards!

        Kudos to Karthik for a fantastic tour of the route from Auckland to Rotorua (and thank you for the snack bag) and knowledge of everything New Zealand-related. My friend and I are so grateful to have immersed ourselves into the Māori experience. What a welcoming feeling to have met a wonderful Māori people, engaged in the fire ceremony, mingled with other tourists through various group activities, and had a fantastic dinner. Of course, one of my favorites is watching the Haka performance. Learning, adventure, and inclusivity are themes of this worthwhile time.
