Auckland Sightseeing Coach Tour | Great Tastes of Matakana

Auckland Sightseeing Coach Tour | Great Tastes of Matakana

Experience the food, wine and arts of Matakana Coast where your informed and entertaining guides make it an exhilarating “assault on the senses” day out.

Leave behind the bustle of the city as you head north in your luxury air-conditioned vehicle. Travel through the rolling green hills and past beautiful coastline before arriving at The Honey Centre where you’ll find New Zealand's largest display of live bees and a huge range of honeys available for tasting. Next, visit a local vineyard and taste award-winning wine.

Visit Brick Bay Wines for a wine-tasting and art extravaganza. Situated along an easy walking trail, around 45 carefully chosen sculptures are given room to breathe in a stimulating interaction between the natural environment and the artistic impulse. On your return to Brick Bay's Glass House you will sample their hand crafted wines followed by a delicious platter lunch made from many locally-sourced ingredients as you reflect on your experience of 'art and wine entwined' at Brick Bay. The day is rounded off with a stop at Chocolate Brown where they hand-make outrageously fine chocolates.
