With the first two departure dates fully booked, MoaTours has added three extra dates for its East Cape Caper: 8 to 13 November, 18 to 23 January and 17 to 22 February.
The chance for clients to discover ‘New Zealand the way it used to be’ is a major attraction of MoaTours’ East Cape Caper, says company founder Ena Hutchinson.
‘Our tour stays a night in Whakatane, then heads to Hicks Bay and on tto Gisborne and Rotorua, enjoying local hospitality along the way.’
Hutchinson adds the trip includes private homestead lunches at Te Kaha, Anaura Bay and Lake Tarawera.
Other highlights include a Te Puke kiwifruit orchard, the East Cape Manuka Company, St Mary’s Church at Tikitiki, Tairawhiti Museum with its major Maori and Captain Cook displays, and the world renowned Eastwoodhill Arboretum.
East Cape Caper also visits Tiromoana – a coastal garden at Wainui Beach – and entry into the grounds and museum at Te Wairoa Buried Village, Lake Tarawera.
