We start our journey at the Port of Tauranga, where we will meet you at the offical gates,  Take in the sights of the bustling coffee shops, small designer boutique, white sandy beaches and not to forget the famous mount, which this area is named after. Leaving the coast we head into the countryside. We make our way to Te Puia in Rotorua. The journey will takes you passed stunning lakes, deep forestry and the first hints of the geothermal area we are travelling too. Once we arrive at our destination, you will be guided around the attraction, where you will see large mud pools, steam vents, boiling bubbling pools & erupting geysers including the largest geyser in the southern hemisphere, Pohutu geyser which was recently ranked in the world’s top 5 geysers by Lonely Planet! We walk around a strange and unforgiving landscape & take you on a journey where history, culture and nature collide and where local Maori's showcase their vibrant Māori cultural performance through dance and song. A show that will leave you with deep lasting memories and not to be missed. Even the architecture at Te Puia has stories to tell, with Māori carvings, flax weaving and structures that have a deep cultural significance. You will also have the chance to visit the Kiwi bird enclosure to see this elusive native bird. After leaving Te Puia we take drive through Rotorua visiting the geothermal public park, The lake front with its many black swans, The tudor style museum with its Rose garden, & Rachel's spring.
