explanation

The Scenic Option from Tauranga to Coromandel Peninsula


This private tour is purely scenic. I can drive you through 2 beautiful gorges, Athenree and Karangahake, then through to Thames, over to Tairua (further north if times permits) then back down the coast to Waihi via Whangamata. I can promise you some of the most spectacular scenery (apart from the South Island's snow-covered peaks) you can experience in New Zealand within the short space of a day. There are many great cafes, wineries and other points of historical interest along the way for as many stops as you like!

Itinerary

I will pick you up and depending on your interests and time restraints we can include the following: stop at the mural town of Katikati, see mining operations both old and new in Waihi, wander into the Karangahake gorge which offers a fabulous scenic walk of about an hour, across to the big bottle at Paeroa with its antique shops, and time permitting head across to the coast for some outstanding views before returning to your pick-up point. It's also possible to pick up and Tauranga and drop off in Auckland for this tour however I would need to adjust the price for this.

A Recent Review of this tour

Julie enjoyed giving me a tour of her home territory. She had grown up in the area that she showed me and therefore knew all about it and could explain it to me. I felt privileged to have her as my guide. I learned that the area she lived in discouraged the use of small bottles of water which I understand well for environmental reasons. She took me to a cafe in her community that she knew well that had gluten free food when she heard that this is what I wished to eat.
