Discover three of Rotorua's best visitor attractions on a this morning Rotorua sightseeing tour.
Gain an insight into New Zealand's Māori culture at Te Puia with a traditional welcome and cultural performance, then experience Rotorua's famous geothermal activity with a tour of the neighbouring Whakarewarewa Thermal Valley - a place where mud pools bubble and boil and geysers shoot steam high into the air. You'll also see Te Puia's woodcarving and weaving schools and see how these ancient Māori art forms are being passed on to a new generation of master artists.
New Zealand wildlife and natural scenery is on display at Rainbow Springs Nature Park, where you can get up close to all kinds of native flora and fauna including the famous kiwi, a flightless native bird. Wander through native forest and discover New Zealand birds, fish and lizards (including the ancient tuatara), as well as exotic animals from around the world.
Then see our agricultural industry in action at the Agrodome, a working organic farm where you can find out all about farming life in New Zealand. Take a tour on all-terrain vehicles, see farm animals like sheep, cattle, deer, llamas and alpacas, ostriches and pigs. Then watch a sheep shearing display and see sheep dog trials where the hard-working farm dogs show off their amazing skills.
At the Agrodome we saw a nice show with sheeps and we could touch some animals, it was awesome! And we went to Te Puia and enjoyed the Maori concert. All was amazing.
