Join an unforgettable shore excursion to Rotorua – New Zealand’s cultural and geothermal hub. This tour is a must for those wanting to a premier Rotorua experience!
From Tauranga, we travel south to the geothermal wonderland of Rotorua making our first stop at the fantastic Te Puia complex. Join your knowledgeable guide on a journey through Te Puia, where boiling pools of mud bubble away, hot pools simmer and awe-inspiring geysers blast steam metres into the air. Learn about its unique Māori history and cultural impact on the region followed by a Māori cultural performance.
After Te Puia, you will pass extensive kiwifruit orchards on route to Rotorua with your guide explaining how this fruit became a kiwi icon.
