Prepare to have a great day out, enjoying the stunning scenery and learning about this amazing area of New Zealand. When Captain Cook first stopped here, he named the area the Bay of Plenty.
You will be met at the port directly off the cruise ship, taken on a tour of Mount Maunganui and then to Rotorua, calling in to taste kiwifruit wine and the world famous Comvita Honey on the way.
And when you get to Rotorua you will be guided around the thermal area, seeing boiling mud pools, pohutu geyser and a Maori cultural performance. We’ll tour the beautiful Government gardens, Stop for lunch on the lakefront (own cost), then home via a different route, through farmland and Native NZ Bush, so you can see a little more of this beautiful country. We guarantee to get you back to the ship at least one hour before sailing, from all of our tours.
You have the choice of 4 different tours, or you can hire us for a full or half day, and plan a tour of your own! Each of the tours focusses on something a little different, from the movie set at Hobbiton to the raw beauty of Hell’s Gate.
