Full description
Travel to Rotorua from Tauranga on a seven-hour tour that’s perfect for cruise ship passengers or others interested in the area. Begin with a drive to Mount Maunganui and learn about the region from your guide. 

Step back in time at Te Whakarewarewa Maori Living Village. This village was built above geothermal land and is home to the largest geyser in the southern hemisphere. Your guide will be one of the residents, so you’ll be able to hear the guide’s family story.

Head to Rotorua Lake – the second-largest lake on the North Island. Journey back to Tauranga and visit an established Kiwifruit Orchard with a sampling room and free ice cream.
