Your day begins when you meet your guide at the port of Tauranga and board your private tour vehicle. Departing the port we travel around one of New Zealands most popular beach holiday destinations of Mount Maunganui, past the stunning homes of the rich and famous on the Pacific Ocean beach front before heading inland through forests and farm land to the Agrodome. Here we will experience a fun but informative Farm Show which explains such an important part of New Zealand life.
Next its into Rotorua City where a gondola ride will take you up to the stunning viewpoint of Skyline Rotorua, time to perhaps takle one of their adrenalin rides before we take our seats in the Panorama Restaurant for a 3 course buffet lunch overlooking the lake far below.
The ride back down in the Gondola gives you chance to take some more photos of the landscape and views before joining the coach for the next part of the day.
Driving through the centre of Rotorua City, along the lake front and into the Government Gardens, you will see the iconic and much photographed Bath House and Museum, The Blue Baths and Rachel's Pool before arriving at Te Puia, the most famous of all geothermal sights in Rotorua.
Here we will take a guided tour through the geothermal valley to see the natural eruptions of the Pohutu and Price of Wales geysers, marvel at the bubbling mud pools [no swimming here] see the native NZ kiwi bird in a special nocturnal enclosure and finally take our seats on the Marae for a Maori Cultural performance which will leave you with lasting memories of your visit to Rotorua.
On your return journey back to Tauranga we will call in to the Kiwi360 kiwifruit orchard and visitor centre if time allows.
