What You'll Get

Meet our friendly team at the Port of Tauranga as you disembark your ship. Your journey with us will begin depending on your ships berthing time. 

The tour will begin by taking you alongside the stunning beaches of Mount Maunganui, or as we like to call it, the mighty Mauao. After this brief introduction to the city of Tauranga we will make our way for about an hour to the exciting city of Rotorua.

In Rotorua we will show you one of the most magnificent hubs of Maori culture in New Zealand, that is Te Puia (admission included). During your time in Te Puia you will be taken on a guided tour covering the fascinating Pohutu Geyser, boiling mudpools and Maori arts. On top of this you will be treated to a 40 minute traditional Maori concert that is a must do for all visitors to New Zealand. 

After about 2 hours in Te Puia we will make our way to see the sights of Rotorua. You will be able to look out on the gorgeous Rotorua Lake as well as experience the flora at Government Gardens. Stand beneath giant trees that sky rocket above the ground in the Redwood Forest and be blown away by Rachel's Thermal Spring.

After our time in Rotorua we will make our way back to Tauranga with a stopover at the wonderful Kiwi Country where you will be able to learn all about New Zealand's most loved kiwifruit. Treat yourself to a kiwifruit icecream and taste test the many Kiwifruit products New Zealand specializes in.

We will then make our way back to the ship and have you ready to board without any time stresses. When travelling with us in our modern Mercedes vehicles you can guarantee you will be delivered safely, reliably and comfortably.
