Great Tastes City Tour | Self-guided | CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE

When it comes to great food and wine, Tairāwhiti Gisborne is New Zealand’s land of abundance. The expansive Pacific coastlines offer up plenty of seafood. The fertile lands produce a bounty of fruits and vegetables. The plains are home to grapes that yield rich flavours perfect for wine-making and apples for cider making.

Tairāwhiti Gisborne is often called ‘the Chardonnay capital of New Zealand’ – but what you may not realise is it is the home of the oldest micro brewery in NZ, Sunshine Brewery and also Harvest Cidery, which came about after the devastation of Cyclone Bola - we had to do something with all the apples!

This tasty tour takes you around our port, rivers, town beaches and connects you to all three great taste sites within our city limits. The Gisborne City Cycle Tour is the perfect trip for those who have an afternoon to spare. You will be sampling locally made wines, beers & ciders with a light lunch/platter at one of our selected sites.

The Great Taste City Cycle Tour offers easy riding and you will travel +/- 8 kilometers.

The tour costs $195 per person for 2 people, which reduces to $185 each for 3 or more.
