We've just had a fantastic day with Brian, our tour guide. He was very approachable and easy to talk with. Excellent knowledge of the area and went the extra mile to show off the Wellington region. He listened to our interests and changed plans to match our wants. We highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a more personal experience, rather than a large commercial operation. Brian is your guy...top notch fella.

This was a great tour! We were a group of six girls out for a birthday celebration.
It included pick-up and drop-off from our preferred location in Wellington City, a visit to Kaitoke, 4 vineyards and 1 olivery.
Lunch was great and Brian was a lovely and knowledgeable host.
What was great is that there was a core plan with flexibility to suit. Add-on other wineries or stops - we even had a quick drink at the local pub before we set-off back home. Highly recommend!

It was just my husband and I that travelled with Brian. The tour was awesome as it included lunch, visiting a beautiful regional park on the way to the vineyards and a great mix of wineries. We had lunch at Colombo, the pizzas and cheeseboard was absolutely delicious. Brian’s knowledge and friendliness made it a great day and we would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.
Thanks Brian for a great day.

What a fantastic day out, last minute decision to do the full day tour to Martinborough with Brian to fill in a day on our girls weekend in Wellington, best decision ever! Although there was only us three Brian was an accommodating host and tailored the day to suit us. Thoroughly enjoyed all our stops, lunch at Colombo's was divine, pizza's were AMAZING!! Would highly recommend doing a tour with Brian if you have the opportunity! We're already working on how we we will do another one when we come back for our WOW Weekend next year!! Thanks heaps Brian!

7 girls had a fab day out with Brian who was very informative, kind, accommodating & a great host.
We loved our day out. The 3 vineyards were fab. The pizza & cheese platters were yummy at Columbos washed down with very generous tasters of delcious wine. Enjoyed a bit of retail therapy in cute little Greytown & coffee at beautiful White Swan. Did a few stops in the way.
Loved the wines & gin and we went home with a fair bit of plonk and helped the country's post covid recovery!
Highly recommend!

OMG - Brian’s tour was the best wine tour I’ve ever been on. He was friendly, informative and couldn’t do enough to make us feel welcome and special. Our lunch at Colombo was delicious, easily the best pizza I’ve eaten this year!
Thanks Brian, we will be including a tour with you for our next Wellington adventure!

A lovely full day. Brian Lines' Talk of the Town small (about 1-9 persons) is fabulous. He's a Wellington native so able to customize the tour to individual interests. The 3 wineries where we tasted were delightful with a varied and delicious lunch platter at Poppies! Took peppered Havarti cheese and a lovely Pinot Gris back to the ship to share! Highly recommended. 😁👍

My wife and myself had the great time. Though the testing wines were moderate, the lunch plate were so nice and matched the wine. We also made several stops at the spots interested, such as the location place of The Lord of the Rings. Brian (tour guide/ driver) has excellent knowledge for all the things we need. If you get a chance to come to Wellington, this tour is highly recommended.
