What You Can Expect

Start your 6-hour shore excursion with pickup from the Port of Tauranga and travel by minivan to nearby Mt. Maunganui. Your departure can be adjusted to accommodate variations in ship arrival time.

The small-group tasting tour begins at a boutique brewery, which specializes in natural ciders and beers brewed without the use of preservatives or added sugar. Sip and savor before moving on to Leveret Estate Winery & Cellar Door in Katikati, with lovely scenery along the way. Partake in a presentation and wine tasting at this medal-winning winery.

Returning to Tauranga, your driver-guide heads up to the Minden Lookout for a coastal view over the Bay of Plenty (weather permitting). On a fine day, you can see the active volcano of White Island.

Arriving at the prestigious, family-owned Mills Reef Winery, you can order lunch in the elegant dining room (own expense) accompanied by another wine presentation and tasting. Following these epicurean delights, finish with a cocktail and dessert at one of Tauranga's top restaurants, which overlooks the harbor.

Your tour concludes with return transport to the port via one of the best beaches in the Southern Hemisphere.

Wonderful tour , highlighted the tastings for the ara. Small group was wonderful and interesting. Guide was very helpful and gave great information. Very enjoyable. Only negative the Desert and Cocktail tasting at the completion of the trip was a little disappointing.

Paul Marston did a great job on our tour. Without a doubt this is one of the best tour values I have ever enjoyed.

This was an excellent tour with the delightful and knowledgeable Paul. We couldn't have asked for a better host and guide. Loved seeing kiwis on the vine and tasting kiwi products, the wineries were beautiful and we had a lovely, outdoor lunch. We were on a cruise but opted to take this small group tour versus the cruise ship excursion on a large bus. Take this tour!!!

A very good tour. Good wines and a knowledgeable guide.The only change I would make is going to the craft brewery at 10 AM is a bit of a stretch for me. I would recommend shifting the beer tasting to the last stop, not the first. Bow was and excellent guide and driver.
