"Hobbiton and Waitomo Caves tours are run by local guides and are of a set duration and you get exactly the same time as other visitors who are visiting less places in a day, but with Rotorua you only have approximately 1.5 hours in the area. If you have more time available and are particularly interested in Rotorua we reccomend you either book our overnight tour to the same 3 destinations or buy 2 tours splitting the destinations over 2 days.but putting all 3 destinations in one day is cost effective and for many people just seeing a geyser and a taste of Rotorua is more than enough"
