5.0 out of 5 stars Eye Witness Travel Guide New Zealand, June 9 2010

This review is from: Eyewitness Travel Guides New Zealand (Paperback)
I love these guides, they are interesting to peruse as they have beautiful photos and diagrams of museums and villages. The advice is accurate, the books are laid out well with categories and sections that are logical. I usually buy one a few months before I visit each destination. There is information on the history, customs, geography and tips for the visitor.

4.0 out of 5 stars promoting fake geyser, Feb. 26 2011
By 
The Eyewitness Travel to New Zealand is a really good and useful book.
I have one thing that made me very angry: at the Waiotapu Thermal Wonderland, there's a geyser named "Lady Knox" which "erupts" every day at 10:15 AM.
There's a shamless fake, the geyser doesn't erupt until a guy throws a very big chunk of soap into the crater, this makes the chemical reaction and the geyser erupts exactly at 10:15 AM every day. I can do the same in my kitchen with Coke!
Instead of spending quality time at the "real" Thermal Wonderland, everybody rushes to see the fake! It's nice for kids and for taking pictures. Nature never works by the clock - real geysers have their own rhythm - depending on the water volume, the moon etc. There are plenty of real ones - at least you could write what's the origin of the punctuality of the Lady Knox - so everybody could choose!!!
