When your cruise ship docks in Tauranga, meet your guide at 10am and head inland through the scenic countryside to Rotorua to begin your 6-hour tour. Along the way, pass dense forests and deep gorges, and listen as your guide talks of the Maori settlers who first carved the route.

On arrival in Rotorua, explore with your guide and discover top attractions including Government Gardens, Rotorua Museum, and the thermal bath houses. Head along the lakefront for lunch at a local cafe (own expense), then enjoy free time to stroll along the shoreline to St. Faith’s Church or the Ohinemutu Maori Village at your leisure.

Afterward, hop into your minivan and spin onward through the geothermal Whakarewarewa Valley to The Living Maori Village. Here, meet your Maori guide for a 1-hour tour and gain insight into life in a Maori tribe.

Catch a traditional cultural performance including the fearsome 'Haka', then head onward through the Whakarewarewa Valley — where hot geysers, boiling mud pools, and steam vents dominate the geothermal landscape.

Follow the coastal route back to Tauranga and admire panoramic views over Lake Rotorua, Lake Rotoiti, and the plantation forests and kiwi fruit orchards for which the Bay of Plenty is famous. Then, return to your ship in time for departure.
