After meeting your guide just outside the port gate, we depart along Pilot Bay where you can see the great views across Tauranga harbour to the city and Matakana Island.

We pass the foot of Mount Maunganui, the iconic landmark of this area where you can see evidence of the early Maori settlements around the base of the mountain and perhaps consider taking a walk to the summit at the end of our tour.

Traversing the narrow strip of land, passing the new high rise hotels and apartments, we reach the famous Mount Ocean beach, site of many major surfing competitions. A popular spot for locals to enjoy the beach front cafes and restaurants.

We continue along the very affluent "Marine Parade" where some of New Zealand's most expensive homes are located. When you see the view out across the Pacific Ocean you will realise why this is one of the country's most popular summer holiday destinations.

Leaving the Mount Maunganui suburb, we head across the harbour to the main city of Tauranga and a stop at the historic battle site of Gate Pa, one of New Zealand's most significant battles between Maori and the British Forces in 1864. A short drive north takes us to a Kiwifruit orchard where the guide will give you a short talk on this most iconic New Zealand fruit.

Next it’s up into the hills which surround Tauranga to a lookout where you will see stunning views of the city, the harbour and the surrounding region, with your cruise ship visible at the base of The Mount.

Our final stop on the tour will be the Elms Mission Station, this is one of New Zealand's most historic sites and we have time to tour the gardens, the Mission House and the Mission Library and learn about the early settlers of the region.
