Discover Tauranga and Mount Maunganui through the eyes of a local with our short tour.

In just two hours, we'll unveil the hidden treasures often overlooked by tourists. 

Our journey kicks off with a scenic drive around the Mount area, crossing the iconic Harbour Bridge and passing by historic landmarks like the Elms Mission House and the Old Post Office nestled in Tauranga's city centre.  Immerse yourself in the lush landscapes as we drive you past the Kiwi & Avocado orchards (time permitting a brief stop) before ascending to the breathtaking Scenic Lookout.

From there, soak in the sweeping panoramic views of the Coromandel, with the distant silhouette of Whakaari / White Island completing the scene.

On your return lies the charming township of Mount Maunganui, beckoning you to explore its delightful array of shops, cafes, bars, and restaurants. Take a stroll around Mauao, the bay, or the picturesque Mount Main Beach. 

Throughout the tour, we'll make a single stop at the lookout for an unforgettable photo opportunity.
