Christine Pike, England

"It was one of the best days of the whole cruise. What a wonderful day we had with Learning Journeys on 9th March when our cruise ship Aurora arrived in Tauranga for the day. The ten of us who were in Learning Journey's care for the day were so fortunate; it was one of the best days in the whole cruise.

Interesting and entertaining, Learning Journeys gave us information about what where we were going and knew the best times to do what. Our day was packed with interest; we visited a kiwi fruit orchard, a category 5 rapid, the walk to the viewing platform was full of interest about the various plants and leaves; then to Rotorua and its geysers with full explanations. We were also treated to some interesting stops on our return journey and even a tour of Tauranga. A well packed day full of interest. Thank you Learning Journeys."
