The Cruise Ship Tour starts from town with a drive up Gisborne’s best viewing spot of the City and Harbour – Kaiti Hill, where we then give a brief historical narration of the discovery of NZ by Captain Cook.
We then drive to Trinity Holy Church for a guided historical building tour, viewing the stained glass and this beautiful 100 year old building.

Cruise Ship Tour – Visiting a Winery, Vineyard Gisborne
A personal tour by the winemaker of the winery, experience tasting the wines direct from barrel or tank.
From there you will be seated either in the gardens or inside the cellar door. Then experience a a range of our stunning organic wines presented to you by the winemaker or cellar door manager. Afterwards you will enjoy some lovely shared platters, containing local fruits, spreads and cheeses.
We have two size groups 4-6 people, which are taken around by the winemaker or for larger groups of 14 or more we hire a local coach to take the group around. We can cater for up to 40 people. Bus Leaves at Gisborne Wine Centre 11.00am arrives back 2.00pm; these are approximate times as it does depend to your requirements. We can also drop you off in town on the way back from the winery. The Gisborne Wine Centre is located at the port, so generally if you are getting transported from the ship to shore, it is less than 10 metres away. Individual bookings are fine which can then help to get over the 10 people minimum requirement. If the tour falls on a public holiday the tour cost is more per person.
If you are arriving into Gisborne via ship, let us know when you are docking into Gisborne and we can then confirm the finer details with you direct.
