Milford Sound Fiordland Cruise Ship

From the very beginning, Hinterland Tours offered passengers arriving in the Port of Tauranga on cruise ships a range of day excursions.

In recent years the company focused on the multi-day tours that were so popular with our local residents, but collaborated with Mount Classic Tours and their Shore Trips & Tours division.

Hinterland will again offer a great range of Cruise Ship Shore Excursions in Tauranga and many other New Zealand ports of call.
