This was a very pleasant excursion. We were taken to a beautiful beach along the lovely coastline. Then to the Honey store where we had the best ice cream. Next to the Kiwi farm to see them growing on their vines. Then up to a viewpoint where we could see our ship in the distance. Finally to the Elm House tour which had a very interesting history.

I loved this Port. The pier is within walking distance of a coastal/holiday shopping centre which has a great vibe. Beautiful scenery. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The tour bus was about a 16 seater, modern and comfortable. We travelled a far distance with some great stops. The kiwi fruit orchid stop was very interesting. Loved this town.

Colin was a wonderful tour guide, full of knowledge. Our tour of The Elms was very interesting. Colin pointed out many of the plants brought in by immigrants as well as local vegetation. The chapel here is used for weddings yet today.

The tour was comprehensive. We toured the beach area and the lovely homes along the way. We visited the old Mission and toured the grounds. A very good way to get a good look at Tauranga.

Very interesting tour, both historically and geographically.Included a drive along the beach, visit to Gate Pa, site of Maori victory over English troops, visit to a kiwi farm with delicious fruit icecream! Ended with a visit to the Elm Mission Station, founded by CMS in the 1840s.

Our cruise ship changed the time of arrival so our original tour had to leave. The company opened an afternoon tour for those of us who were late so it was a small group. Knowledgeable driver/tour guide and on site tour was arranged. Took us to historical places, the Kiwi farm, and scenic drives. We did not feel rushed and got back to the ship on time.
