Excellent Eco Thermal Park tours

"Took the full day tour. The morning tour on Eco Thermal parks was really outstanding and not to be missed. The afternoon tour on the Buried Village and Living Maori Village was good though not as spectacular as the signts in the morning tour. The blue and green lakes were sort of disappointing - it was just a quick photo stop. Guide was excellent and tour was well organized."
