Thank you John for hosting a lovely hen's day for our large group. We had a ball and I was so impressed by your knowledge and attention to detail (e.g. providing gluten free options for our coeliac friend). Highlights for us were the behind the scenes tour of Kumeu River and the beautiful outdoor setting at West Brook. Definitely would... More

This is a Fraudulent and Fake review. You have never been on an NZWINEPRO tour. You mention no inclusions, you don't even know the Guide's name and every review you have written is phrased in the same generic style with no actual content and just your own ridiculous suggestions that anyone would know anyway. THIS IS A FAKE REVIEW! More

Enjoyed a great day touring with the knowledgeable John - visited 3 interesting wineries and enjoyed a superb lunch. Small group tour in a comfortable car. Even took us at the end of the tour to a supermarket to buy Manuka at the best price. Highly recommend.

Hi Traveller. Thanks much for your wonderful review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed Vineyards Honey & Black Sand Beach tour and that the quality of the experience was up to scratch. NZWINEPRO operates the best vehicles of any wine tour business in Auckland. The 11 seat Ford Transit is large and spacious and the vehicle we were in that day... More

What a phenomenal tour. John loves what he does and you can tell. The tour was wonderful, and the wine was great. John is one of those people that will go out of his way to make your day great, as he did for us. He is known and loved by everyone. Would definitely recommend.

The NZ Wine Pro tour was a highlight of my stay in Auckland! The tour guide John was incredibly knowledgable about New Zealand culture and history, and provided us with a fun commentary throughout the journey. After the slated wine tour at Villa Maria, he kindly offered to drop us off along the water to grab lunch before he took... More

Hi Lia, Thanks for your great review. I had such a fun time with you and your group. I'm glad I was able to make up for the tour at Villa Maria not being as good as it should have been. I will be honest and say occasionally their own guides lack experience and the facility tour can be disappointing.... More

Hi Tienne, Thank you for your great review. The Vineyards Honey & Black Sand Beach Tour is certainly one of the most popular tours because of the short travel time and amount of inclusions for the price. A great lunch and a glass of wine with it!! And the black Sand Beach and Gannet colony is always amazing. So thanks... More

Thank you Howard for your great review. I love to get repeat business and these days I would say a third of my tours have people who are on their second tour or are there by referral. So I'm glad the Waiheke Island tour was enjoyable the second time round. I always try to visit different vineyards for repeat clients... More

We wanted to go a rainforest tour but everything was already booked out so we took a wine tour instead (actually we are not crazy about wine). And it was GREAT!!! John was extremely caring and knowledgeable not only about wines and winemaking but also about history, politics, economics, nature, Maori, food, actually everything. As wine is not our first...

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your tour and that the inclusions as well as commentary met with your best expectation. I do appreciate that for some clients 3 vineyard tastings is plenty, but I do have some shorter tours with out lunch that visit two wineries like the Muriwai Scenic Wine tour... More
