Experience a flexible tour of the Rotorua region with a friendly personal guide from ToursByLocals. Your private guide knows this area as only locals do, and is eager to give you an unforgettable tour that reflects your travel interests.

See the well-known attractions that appeal to you, but also benefit from your guide's familiarity with local best-kept secrets and off-beat spots.

In the geothermal district of Rotorua, known as "Te Puia" to the Maori people, don't miss the Pohutu Geyser, which blasts 30 meters skyward 20 times a day. For an experience that is unique to New Zealand, enjoy Maori culture at Te Puia.

Tour Guide Legal Requirements
In New Zealand there is no requirement for a guide to have a license to give tours.

However, if the tour guide is also the driver, then they are required to hold a Passenger Service License and have a Private Hire Registration.

The driver must hold a Passenger Endorsement and must also complete a log book, and must record all work time. Drivers must not exceed the allowable work time.

The vehicle must hold a Certificate of fitness (CoF)

Some rental vehicles are not suitable as Passenger Service vehicles due to the narrow aisle space, seating arrangements and lack of cargo barriers. Most rental company contracts forbid the vehicle being used in a passenger service. report error

All ToursByLocals guides have met our ToursByLocals Guide Requirements which includes warranting that they can legally give the tours they offer.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
