Customer Travel Tip: Get there early, spend the whole day there. We did the mount which is with the walk, if the weather is good.

Liked: Lovely seaside town.

Disliked: We were there for 2 nights, and that was long enough time for us to get bored. It is a good place to visit for a day trip though!

Customer Travel Tip: Go there, explore and enjoy!

Liked: There is so much to do in Tauranga. The main street (maybe called The Strand- I can't remember) has lots of eateries and pubs for your pleasure. If you're there for shopping, there are lots to choose from. If you're there for an activity based trip then definitely visit Mount Maungauni! It is divine with lots of beaches to relax on once you've complete the walk/run to the summit.

Disliked: No!
