Itinerary

When does my tour start?

This tour has a set start time of 09:30 am.

When do I return to port after my tour/excursion?

The tour is 3.5 hours in length so you will be returned in plenty of time for your cruise ship departure.
All tour times are based on Shore time (i.e. local time, - not ship time)

You will be met at the port by a Cruising Excursions representative who will then guide you to your air conditioned transportation ready to commence your half day tour.

Start the tour with stunning views of the harbour and the beautiful beaches that draw in so many tourists each year. Million Dollar mansions sit along the coastline line of Maunganui where you will stop for a chance to see the Cenotaph memorial commemorating ANZAC day. After this you will pass by the Elms Mission station one of New Zealand's most important historic buildings.

Next this tour will take you to the old fort of Monmouth Redoubt, where you will learn all about the New Zealand wars fought in the 1860's before moving on to explore Gata Pa Battle Site - where the Maori won in battle against the British.

Then you move on to taste some world famous Manuka honey, and get a chance to buy some to take home with you too!

On the way to your final stop you pass by Kiwifruit and Avocado orchards with views of the beautiful Wairoa river on the way to a panoramic view point (Weather permitting) from here you will see spectacular views of the orchards and islands in the distance, and you may even be able to spot your ship!

The day is topped off at the end by a stop to Bobby's fresh fish market where you will get to receive a free fish and chip lunch before heading back to your ship.
