Excellent tour guide, wineries, and wines
Oct 2020
We had the pleasure of touring four wineries on a beautiful day with John. His stories of the region as you drive between wineries is very entertaining. His knowledge of the wines and the wineries we visited were interesting and useful. John was very communicative and accommodating about our booking. We visited four wineries, ranging from small boutique wineries to larger ones in the area. At each winery, the wines were exceptional. We would definitely recommend for a couple (we were the only couple in the tour that afternoon).

An excellent wine experience
Jan 2020
Really enjoyed our tour yesterday. Maggie, our host was brilliant - she told us the history of Napier and pointed out interesting places along the way. At the wineries, we were greeted warmly and given very informative introductions to the wines we tasted.
Highly recommend Hawkes Bay Scenic Tours.

The Very Best Tour We Did In New Zealand!!
Mar 2019 • Couples
It was such a pleasure working with John to set this tour up for our group of 11, and he made sure we had a great time!! We were so lucky to have Maggie as our guide for the day, and she went out of her way to make sure we saw all the sights around Napier, and had great tastings at the wineries. The entire day was memorable, with visits to the art deco area of Napier, history of the area, the wineries and the brew pup. The tour could not have been better, and we highly recommend this tour company.

A good wine experience
Mar 2018 • Couples
We were collected from our motel by Maggie who explained some of the history of Napier as we drove along. We met John who took us on a tour of several vineyards starting with Teawa and Trinity Hill for the 'standard' wine tasting experience. We then went onto Church Road where we had an insight behind the scenes of the wine making process, and then a tour in the old cellars where there is an exhibition of the history of the Church Road estate. Finally we went to the Mission where Maggie took over again, and there we sampled some excellent wines and bought a superb dessert wine (especially as we don't like sweet wines) before Maggie took us back to our accommodation. The best bit is that there was only the two of us for the whole tour and so were very well looked after. This was our best wine tour experience we had in New Zealand.
