WAITOMO WANDERER PASS
Waitomo is consistently rated in New Zealand's top 10 must see places, and The Legendary Black Water Rafting Co. there as one of the top 10 activities. As a result many of Kiwi Experience passes already include this sector. Departing from Rotorua there'll be plenty to see before you even get there. Once in Waitomo you'll have the option of experiencing The Legendary Black Water Rafting Co., seeing the caves from a walk, rabbit shearing (strange but true!) and a whole lot more.
