Your experience begins when we greet you just outside the port gates in Tauranga and introduce you to
your guide for this private group off the beaten track tour to see Wai-O-Tapu, a geothermal wonderland,
then travel onto Rotorua where you will enjoy the sights both in and round the central city, along the lakefront and from the Sjyline Gondola. At the Skyline Gondola you will also enjoy five luge rides, before
returning to your cruise ship, berthed in Tauranga.

The first destination is the geothermal wonderland of Wai-O-Tapu, here we will first experience the
eruption of the world famous Lady Knox Geyser, which erupts each day around 10.15am. You will learn
how this natural geothermal event can be so prompt with its display each day, for the benefit of the 100’s
of visitors.

Its just a short transfer to the main part of Wai-O-Tapu, which Trip Advisor says “One of the 20 Most
Surreal Places in the World”. Here your guide will take you on a slow amble to see the unique landscape
sculptured out of volcanic activity over thousands of years. Wai-O-Tapu is considered to be New Zealand’s
most colourful and diverse geothermal sightseeing attraction.

Arriving in Rotorua you will see the highlights of this famous tourist town, including the Government Gardens, the Historic Bath House, Rotorua Museum, the Blue Baths, Rachel’s Pool and then along the Lake front to drive past theTe Arawa Waka [canoe]. In the central city there will be time to get some lunch, by own arrangements.

Following lunch it is then a short drive to the Skyline Gondola where you will have wonderful views over the city and Lake Rotorua. At the Skyline Gondola five luge rides have been arranged for your enjoyment.

Our route back to the ship follows the coastal road, passing Lake Rotorua and Lake Rotoiti, through
planta-tion forests and kiwi fruit orchards – for which the Bay of Plenty is famous. With lots of photo
opportunities on route.

You will then be returned to your ship in good time for its departure.
