Te Puia - A cruise-shipper's favourite venue.


Did you know that the only reason cruise-ships started coming to the Port of Tauranga many years ago, was that it was the port with the closest proximity to the "magical thermal wonderland" of Rotorua. Despite local annoyance, it remains the most pre-booked cruise-passenger choice.

Pretend you have arrived on a cruise-ship. Come on a day out with us to find out why overseas clients have considered a day in Rotorua a 'must do".


We will pick you up from your home before leaving the city & travelling through open countryside en route to Rotorua via the Pyes Pa road.

After proceeding to Te Puia, the Maori Cultural Centre, clients are given a personalised tour of the old pa site, through the thermal grounds (of boiling mud, geysers etc.) & shown the wood-carving school, flax-weaving & the kiwi bird.

On leaving Te Puia, you will choose where you wish to lunch. We travel through Rotorua's CBD & can drop you at "EatStreat" or at the lakeside for you to eat your own picnic. After picking you up again we'll travel along the lakefront, through the Government Gardens, stopping at the Rotorua Museum, the Historic Bath-house, to explain the background of this fine old building.

We'll return to Tauranga via a different route, which provides clients with the opportunity to view different scenery.

En route we'll stop briefly at a kiwifruit orchard where the kiwifruit industry will be explained, from planting through to the beautiful edible fruit.

We will then return you to your pick-up point, a little wiser about & more appreciative of our wonderful region & its attractions..
