Ensure that you walk to the other side of town to see and walk a beautiful beach area. Very few passengers took shuttle over to the city of Tauranga. Read Less

Pre booked a Maori Cultural Experience in Rotorua with Viator. We, four of us, were picked up at the dock along with two others. The tour was available to other guests to book on arrival but no one did. On route to Rotorua we visited a Kiwi Fruit orchard. Tasted Kiwi fruit products and had Kiwi fruit ice cream (included). I bought some Kiwi fruit dark chocolate. Yum. Had a scenic stop at a waterfall and site of early geothermal power station. The Maori Cultural Experience took place at Te Puia geothermal park where there are hot, bubbling, mud pools geysers etc. Our guide is able to predict when then main geyser was about to blow and he is rarely wrong as he had learned to interpret the signs. The Cultural Experience involved going to the Maori Marae, meeting place, where one of our group was selected to represent the visitors at an invitation ceremony involving a Haka and gift offering ceremony by the chief. The gift was accepted by our 'leader' and, having been accepted as coming in peace, we were invited into the marae to watch a performance of Maori singing. Males from the audience were invited on stage to learn how to do a Haka war chant. Great fun and a privilege. Our guide/driver was a born and bred Kiwi pakeha and a great raconteur. Read Less

Great town. Very Scenic. Nice beach. You can hike to the top of a sizeable hill used by hang gliders if you are adventurous.

With 2 Princess Ships in port, some 7000 passengers this was a bit of a miss. We've been here before, so while everyone pretty much went left into Tauranga, we turned right and found a newly opened coffee cafe. Perfect, not a tourist in sight while we were there, good coffee, local food and free wifi. Read Less
