Custom Tours

Take a personally escorted tour with “Long Island Tours” to experience some of the best of New Zealand wine, food, history, art and Maori culture.
You will be hosted and guided by Hawkes Bay tour operator Brigid Ormond. Transportation is in a comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle. These tours provide the chance to meet people that you would not otherwise meet and go places you would not otherwise go.  Because this is a personalised tour you have the opportunity to pursue your own particular interests.
Experience a powhiri (Maori welcome) at the top of legendary Te Mata Peak and spend time with wonderful Maori characters. Meet and talk with a number of artists and wine experts. Visit a number of award-winning, Hawkes Bay wineries and enjoy a leisurely lunch.
We will provide transportation to and from Glen Aros.
