Our Rotorua City and Lakes tour is a fantastic sightseeing experience. Combining the education of a historically significant area with the thrill of riding in New Zealand’s only genuine operating WW2 landing crafts and seeing beautiful scenery en route, it promises to be a real highlight of your time in Rotorua.

The tour begins in the heart of Rotorua. See historic buildings, natural hot springs, geothermal wonders and more while your conducktor brings to life stories of old. Re-live our rich cultural history which makes Rotorua an amazingly unique destination. From there, head out to the picturesque Lake Tikitapu (Blue Lake) for the first splashdown before you head to Lake Okareka for your second splashdown, nestled in the heart of a small vibrant community.

The Rotorua City & Lakes tour is highly recommended for families.
