Excellent day on the local Tauranga Tasting Tour. Paul was a great host with a good knowledge of the wines and beers at the places we visited. We were picked up and dropped off at our door. Great wine, great food, great day.
Welcome to Tauranga Tasting Tours & Charters
We are a transport company that specialises in small-group tours, ex Tauranga, to food & wine venues.
We can be chartered to go to venues that are not food/liquor related (shows, sports events etc) in the Bay of Plenty or elsewhere. Our clients enjoy eating & drinking in convivial company, but prefer doing so with others & having a safe driver. During the cruise-ship season, we visit the thermal delights of Rotorua, the subterranean marvels of the Waitomo Caves & take people on our Local Tasting Tour. These tours are available to domestic clients throughout the year.
We are frequently chartered for special occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, Hens’ Parties, so that people can fit the celebration to their venue type, budget, date & number constraints.
