This Rotorua hop-on, hop-off tour departs from Tauranga, passing through Te Puke, the delicious kiwi fruit capital of the world, then forests, followed by Lake Rotoiti and Lake Rotorua. Along the way, your driver will provide information on the highlights you could visit in Rotorua and the best options for doing so. The route circulates four times during the day. The final stop near the Agrodome allows you to fit in the last show before returning to Tauranga by a different route, through forests, into deep gorges, past farms and kiwifruit orchards.
