The Local Tour commences by visiting a boutique craft brewery, where the process of producing the natural beer with no preservatives or additives is explained & a range of beer is sampled. (If you're not a beer drinker, you can choose samples of cider or beer.)
We then have a light lunch at one of Taurana's top restaurants, The White House, Te Puna.
We travel North through scenic countryside for a presentation & tasting at the Wine Portfolio, now home to the prestigious, medal-winning wines of Leveret (formerly Morton) Estate & Mills Reef Winery. (The former Mills Reef Winery no longer exists.) This will be an opportunity to sample excellent NZ wines, and to ask questions about NZ wine-styles & terroir.
The tour returns to Tauranga for dessert & a cocktail at one of Tauranga's most popular restaurants, Salinity Restaurant & Bar, overlooking our beautiful harbour & marina.
We then return you to ship-side (or to local accommodation) via what we claim is the best beach in the Southern Hemisphere.
