Some of the Bay of Plenty’s most exciting towns and attractions are some way from the coast, which can make them tough to get to if you’re exploring the region on a cruise ship. This day-long tour to Rotorua solves that problem by picking you up direct from your cruise ship in Tauranga. Drive just under 50 miles to Rotorua and explore the town, including stops at Te Puia, a hub of local Māori culture and geothermal activity, the beautiful Government Gardens and the towering Redwood Forest.
  • At Te Puia, see explosive geysers and traditional Māori kapa haka
  • Learn about New Zealand’s love affair with kiwifruit
  • Relax on the drive to Rotorua in a spacious Mercedes minivan
  • Headsets are provided in the van, so you can enjoy expert commentary on the way

Nice overview of the area
, Mar 2020
Tour was very good! Saw the highlights of this area in our 6+ hour tour. The only recommendation that I have is to have a better microphone system in the van. It did not work quite a bit of the time.
