I booked this tour already. Questions:
1. What about lunch - any stop for lunch or we better bring some food with us to save time?
2. Wai-o-Tapu- is a 90min walk in the park? Any brochure/map provided?
3. Waimangu - what is included in 3 hours tour? Park's shuttle bus? Any boat trips?
4. My understanding - no bathing in thermal pools included, correct?

Hello Belya,

The tour guide will arrange a stop for lunch for the tour participants, but you can choose to bring some food if you like.

You will get a good 90 minutes to explore the park on your own, and additional material will be provided during the tour.

The Waimangu admission will allow for a self guided easy walking tour along crater walkways through beautiful Waimangu Volcanic Valley, and you can speak to your tour guide about availability of an optional Lake Rotomahana Cruise.

Bathing in the thermal pools is not included.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Best Regards,
Customer Service Rep
