Half-Day Kayak to the Maori Rock Carvings in Lake Taupo
"It was a great way to explore Lake Taupo by kayaking and we could reach out to the Maori Rock Carving. We could come close and took picture. The kayaks were in very good condition. They had steer controlled by foot, and even a small motor that helped us to catch up with the team and saved our energy in return way! It was a small group tour with 8 persons in 4 kayaks. A good size of grouping. It was fun."..."
