Best Auckland to Rotorua Day Tour

Start the day off with a warm welcome from Legends, where we conduct a meet and greet so you can get to know you’re your guide for the day. Then it’s off to explore the area, for you to discover the world’s most exquisite geothermal springs.

Widely believed to be one of New Zealand’s ultimate holiday destinations, many locals and overseas visitors flock to Rotorua every year. The name Rotorua is derived from traditional Maori language – with ‘roto’ meaning lake and ‘rua’ meaning two, thus Rotorua being translated as ‘second lake’. With its strong links to Maori heritage, legend and culture, it’s only to be expected that Rotorua is a dream spot for anyone who wants to get to know New Zealand better.

When you book a Rotorua day tour with Legends Tours, you’ll get the chance to discover all the highlights of New Zealand’s mystical Waitomo Caves, visit the region’s famous bubbling mudpools and geysers, while taking in the thermal activity and Maori culture in the area.

Of course, with your own chauffeur on these tours, you can sit back and bask in the tranquillity that these regions offer, taking in the beautiful green landscapes. Our first brief stop will be the small town of Matamata, famous for being the home of Hobbiton in the ‘The Lord of the Rings’ movies. Our short stop will give you the perfect chance to check out Matamata’s unique blend of traditional Kiwi culture speckled with a mix of modern cafes.

Once you’ve had a chance to check out the delights of Matamata, we’ll continue our journey, making our way through stunning landscapes and the dense forestry of the Mamuku Ranges, before reaching our destination of Rotorua.


Start off with a visit to Te Puia to get acquainted with Maori culture – you will have the option of receiving a traditional Maori welcome (powhiri), followed by a cultural performance.

Following this, gear up for your own exclusive guided tour of:

Pikirangi Maori Village – this traditional Maori village settlement has been preserved to allow you to witness pre-European Maori society.

Kiwi House – your chance to encounter our amazing national bird and learn more about them.

Geothermal Valley (Te Whakarewarewa) – the best place to explore the region’s mud pools and world famous geysers.

Cultural Show in Te Puia (Optional)

Once this is all wrapped up, it’s time to visit Rotorua city centre, the Government Gardens and the lake front, before heading over to the breathtakingly beautiful Green and Blue lakes, exploring the great Redwood Forest on the way.
