When your ship docks at the cruise terminal in Tauranga, meet your guide at 9am and hop into your vehicle. Then, head onward through Te Puke — the home of the New Zealand kiwifruit — to begin your 8-hour tour. Along the way, gaze over Lake Rotoiti and Lake Rotorua, and pass acres of fertile kiwifruit orchards.

On arrival at Te Puia — your first stop — visit the Maori Arts and Crafts Institute with your guide. Watch skilled craftsmen fashion traditional wood carvings and see Maori women demonstrate flax-weaving. As you explore, gain insight into New Zealand’s Maori handicrafts.

Head onward through the Whakarewarewa Valley — where bubbling mud pools and powerful steam vents dominate the geothermal landscape — and take in top attractions for which Te Puia is famous, including the mighty Pohutu geyser.

See New Zealand's iconic flightless bird — the Kiwi — in a purpose-built Kiwi-house, and explore the recreated traditional Maori fortified village. Here, catch a traditional cultural performance of the fearsome ‘Haka’ before a light lunch (own expense).

After lunch, head on to Skyline Skyrides — widely considered among Rotorua’s top attractions. Take the gondola up to the top station and enjoy a range of exciting activities including luge runs down the mountainside and zip lines (own expense). Perhaps enjoy refreshments in the cafe (own expense) as the kids blow off steam, then spin past Mt. Maunganui on route back to the port in Tauranga to bring your tour to an end.
