If you don't have much time during your Tauranga visit but still want to see as much as possible, then you should book one of the popular half day tours offered by Aerius Helicopters.
The best way to explore the region is by first taking a scenic flight. A helicopter ride gives you a birds’ eye perspective and breathtaking views of Tauranga's amazing places. The half day tours are proving particularly popular with cruise ship passengers into the Mount, looking for a Tauranga cruise ship tour and wanting to get the most out of their flying visit.
Local tour operators Aerius Helicopters have a wide variety of half day tours in Tauranga and beyond available. You can even customise your own. The Mount and the City takes in all the main sights, while the helicopter flight to Tarawera and Rotorua Lakes boasts some of New Zealand's most picturesque lakes and bush. Or, for an experience to remember, spice up your cruise with the ever-popular flight to White Island from Tauranga where you can land on a real volcano.
With plenty of options that take less than half a day, a scenic flight around Tauranga is an ideal way to see a lot more in less time and combine it with another half day activity - it's no wonder the tours by Aerius Helicopters are so popular!
