|A short tour that has a little bit of everything the stunning Bay of Plenty has to offer.
We start by taking a drive down one of New Zealand’s most beautiful and popular beaches, Mount Maunganui. Hearing some of the local history and the story of Mauo as we head south towards Te Puke the Kiwifruit capital of NZ.
Here we find Comvita where you get an opportunity to test taste and try Manuka honey products including Manuka Honey ice cream and view a working beehive. We make our way to Maketu to see the landing place of Maori into the Bay and take in some stunning views of Tauranga. Leaving Maketu we head to a working Kiwifruit Orchard where you will hop aboard a Kiwi Cart and take a short tour of the orchard. The orchard tour will give you an insight into why NZ grows the best Kiwifruit in the world, why Kiwifruit is one of the most nutritious fruits and you will learn about our harvest and growing seasons. Back off the orchard it's time to test, taste and try fresh Kiwifruit, juices, ice cream and more. There is also time to pick up those last minute souvenirs. We finish our day with a leisurely drive back into Tauranga city and along the waterfront taking in some of its attractions before arriving back at your accommodation.
