Your experience today begins when we greet you just outside the port gates and introduce you to your guide for this small group tour to see the Highlights of Rotorua – and especially Whakarewarewa – The Living Māori Village. We take the inland route, over the harbour bridge and through Tauranga to join the old drovers road to Rotorua. This historic route, carved by the first Māori settlers many hundreds of years ago, passes through stunning scenery, forests and deep gorges.
