Our preferred trip for young families and those who have a little more maturity on their side.  Whether visiting the region for a longer period or those on shore excursion this tour provides great insight into the area and Maori culture. Included in this trip is the wonderful Whakarewarewa Maori Living Villiage with Pohutu Geyser and the highly recommended Polynesian Spa. 

Expected tour time 7.5-8 hours

Adult        $170
Child        $150  (up to 15 years of age)
Under 5's  $100 


This trip is very much family friendly and suitable for all ages.  Capturing some truely delightful sights this is an ideal venture for those wanting to gain a broad appreciation and understanding of the area.

Generally starting from Mount Maunganui you will have the opportunity to visit a Kiwifruit Orchard on your journey to Rotorua.  Experience the unique country backdrop as we head inland to the 10th Largest Lake in New Zealand covering 80 square kilometers.  

Visiting Whakarewarewa you will walk through time and experience Maori life and learn some of their history.  Captivated by not only their story but also the picturesque surrounds they call their Rohe or territory.   When you step into the outdoor lounge instead of a TV you will be able to gaze upon 'Pohutu' the largest active geyser in the Southern Hemisphere.  Your experience does not end here as you will be treated to a traditional Maori Hungi for lunch.  As to ensure you have the complete experience you will also be apart of a live Maori Cultural Show with audience interaction. 

Your day just would not be complete with bathing in the healing Geothermal Water of Rotorua's Polynesian Spa.  Your tour costs include entry to Adult pools or the Family Pool area.
