Trip advisor certificate of excellence, shore tour  to Rototua and Hobbiton

Here are some of our happy cruise passenger comments about their shore trip experience with Cruise Tauranga

“I was astounded at the wide knowledge Simon has, but his manner and method of presentation was superb and educational, but in an interesting way. His light sense of humour made things that much more enjoyable, and I would have loved to be able to sit and listen to him expound on other aspects of New Zealand. Probably the best value for money I have ever had on any tour in a foreign country.”

“My daughter and I did the Rotorua Geyser shore tour with Michele. Michele was excellent. She had lots of great information to share, and she was prepared to answer questions. This tour covered a lot of attractions - kiwi orchard, Te Puia, geyser and mud pools, Maori cultural show, and rain forest walk. I booked this tour before I ever left home, relying on TripAdvisor reviews. If you're like me, and you're a little apprehensive about booking a tour from the other side of the world, let me put you at ease. CruiseTauranga knows how to serve cruise passengers. We had a great, great day!”
CynthiaK840, Worthington, Ohio.

“It was great. Guy taught us so much about New Zealand's history, culture, people and natural environment. It was the best day of a fantastic holiday. Guy was more than a tour guide, he is an awesome ambassador for all things NZ. He was very intelligent, and good humoured (and tolerant of our groups occasional inappropriate jokes) Our group ranged in age from 16 to 70 and Guy got hugs and handshakes from all at the end of the day. Thank you Learning Journeys, we could not have asked for more. Kia kaha!”

“My wife and I took a tour with Meaghann from Cruise Tauranga, Meghann met us when we docked at port, and made sure that we were promptly back in plenty of time for the Ship departure. We had a fabulous time with Meghann - we had a full itinerary that day which included Rotorua and Hobbiton. Meghann was both informative and fun to have as a guide and we felt very confident that we would be back at the ship with no issues. It was clear that she loved the area and we could certainly see why – we also thought it was beautiful. So much to see. If we had more time we would have loved to see more of Rotorua but we also needed to meet up with the Hobbiton tour that would have allowed to return in time. Meghann made sure that all our requirements were met in the limited time that was available. Thanks to Cruise Tauranga / Learning Journeys for a fantastic day.”

Shore tour day excursion options from Port of Tauranga

  • Amazing day with Cruise Tauranga 
    We organised a day tour to Rotarua on the day our cruise arrived in Tauranga. Guy was waiting for us in a mini bus when we docked. We spent an amazing day with several stops only the locals would know! The day was fun and interesting and great value for money . Because we were a small group we could be flexible with where we stopped and how long for. Could not recommend more highly if you are looking for a more personal and cost effective than the tours offered by your cruise line. We were traveling with friends and we all agreed this was the best day we spent in New Zealand.

  • We were met by Simon, our guide, at the Tauranga quay. An excellent and informative day out to the Kiwi plantation, Okere Falls and Te Puia for the Maori show and the Geysers. Simon's background as a geography and geology teacher make him a very knowledgeable guide and he kept us entertained throughout.

  • This was a private tour off of Celebrity solstice. Excellent tour with Simon. Very informative and well planned. 
    Noticed that even though we emailed in credit card info , that it was not charged until well after the tour was over. Would highly recommend this tour.

  • A great tailor-made tour
    On New Year's Day Michelle met our family of 5 at the dock and took us around the area. As previously organised with Simon our main criteria was that we wished to see thermal activity and go to Hobbiton. Michelle did this and more adding in Kiwi360, guiding us around TePui, magnificent viewpoints, interesting information and bottles of water when we needed them. Michelle made sure we had plenty of time to see every thing we visited and was extremely friendly. Highly recommend this company to anyone planning to go to Tauranga or Rotorua.
