Kay 8 months ago We bought the voucher online for the day pass only. The voucher was handed in at the entrance gate for a physical ticket to enter Te Puia. We decided to take the guided tour and after the tour was over explore the geothermal on our own. The tour was very cultural and the geothermal itself was great to explore.

Journey back in time to a pre-European lifestyle experience of customs and traditions while ambling down the pathways of the rediscovered village as it comes alive to the sound and activities of tribal songs and dances.
