What people are saying about Sporting Events in North Island

Mornin Lakes Tour
"I’m very pleased to recommend the Lakes Tour. I’ve been to Rotorua a few times before and visited all the usual tourist attractions close to and around town. This time, I decided to take a tour around the lakes to sites not usually frequented by tourists (and even some locals). We visited lots of spectacular sites. Stephen was a great host and guide; he was punctual, the minibus was clean and tidy, and he drove safely. Stephen provided us extensive commentaries covering science, geography and history for all the sites. This tour is not just about showcasing spectacular views; you’ll be enriched by the back-stories that go with them."..."
