I will pick you up from your cruise ship or Hotel and we will make our way to Marahau the start of the Tasman National Park. Here you can enjoy a short board walk around the wetlands area on the edge of the Tasman National Park where you will have an opportunity for some bird watching and some great photo opportunities.
It will be then onto the beautiful Kaiteriteri beach for a stop at a seaside cafe for coffee/tea. We will then make our way out through the apple orchards and the hop fields behind Motueka to Moutere Hills Vineyard and Cafe which is situated among the picturesque hills near Nelson in the warm and sunny north of New Zealand's South Island.
It is a family owned boutique vineyard and winery, and also has beer and cider for tasting, owned and operated by Rusty Rayne and Lisa Goodson.
