And what an amazing tour.
We generally book shore excursions from our cruise ship directly before our holiday.
It can be a gamble with the cruise companies telling you if you are late back they will leave without you!
I find independent companies always know the best places to go and times to visit and this trip was no exception.
The wonderful Bruce and Irene met us at the terminal and we continued with Bruce on a tour from Tauranga.
After spending their working life in the tour industry that wasn't anything Bruce didn't know about this wonderful country.
We visited Rotaura which was stunning and the Maori village from which I will take away the warmth of these people .
We even had time for Kiwi fruit icecream and a photo by a now famous royal tree on the way back to the fabulous Mount Maunganui.
Amazing tours - an amazing day - with amazing memories. Thanks Bruce
