A local tour operated by locals…. This is an enjoyable, educational, and light-hearted tour of what we consider to be Tauranga and Mount Maunganui's "best," which is what other tourists miss while taking the lengthier excursions to Rotorua.
The Historic Elms Mission House, Old Post Office, Tauranga Waterfront, and Harbour Bridge are all highlighted in the city area before we drive out to show you the Kiwi & Avocado orchards. We then take a beautiful drive up to the Scenic Lookout from where you can see stunning panoramic views as far up as the Coromandel with Whakaari / White Island visible in the distance.
This being a shorter non-stop 2-hour tour offers you time, if you would like to be dropped in the township of Mount Maunganui to explore the beautiful shops, cafes, bars & restaurants or take a walk around Mauao, the bay or indeed the stunning Mount Main Beach. From there it's only a 10-minute walk back to the ship.
