Travel from ship-side over the harbour bridge & through Tauranga's CBD, before leaving the city & travelling through open countryside en route to Rotorua.
After proceeding to Te Puia, the Maori Cultural Centre, clients are given a personalised tour of the old pa site, through the thermal grounds (of boiling mud, geysers etc.) & shown the wood-carving school, flax-weaving & the kiwi bird. This is followed by a Maori Welcome onto the marae, before entering a meeting house for a performance by a Maori concert party.
On leaving Te Puia, we travel through Rotorua's CBD to a small cafe on the lakefront, where lunch is purchased (at client's cost). After lunch we travel along the lakefront, through the Government Gardens, stopping at the Rotorua Museum, the Historic Bath-house, to explain the background of this fine old building.
We return to Tauranga via a different route, which provides clients with the opportunity to view different scenery.
En route we stop briefly at a kiwifruit orchard where the kiwifruit industry is explained, from planting through to the beautiful edible fruit.
To end the tour, we travel along our beautiful waterfront & beach, before returning to ship-side.
While travelling, your driver/guide for the tour will give a commentary explaining points of interest.,
