I am not a wine drinker but found this tour enjoyable. The driver was informative about the area and how the wines are nutrtured. We went to Framingham, spy Natilius and St Clair wineyards. The highlight was definitely St Clair's with our Argentine host Ricardo. We then went to the chocolate factory which finished The tour wonderfully.

Colleen was an excellent tour guide and went out of her way to make our day informative and enjoyable. We visited 6 wineries, all very different. Lunch was first class at Wairau River winery. Our final stop was at a boutique chocolate shop. All in all I would highly recommend this tour company as extremely good value.

This tour started at 10 and ended after 5. We toured 5 wineries. Our guide, Colleen, was very friendly and informative and set a relaxing, fun atmosphere right from the get go. We had fun talking to the others on our tour especially at our lunch at one of the wineries. It was a good learning experience and we estimated... More

The driver Dave (not the owner Dave) was very nice and helpful. Knowledge level of wine and wineries very good. We asked to visit vineyards that are award winning and small in size with more character and were very satisfied with the itinerary.

My husband and I had an amazing time on this tour. Larissa was bubbly, well-versed in wines and extremely accommodating. I really enjoyed that she took us to lots of family-owned vineyards and it was nice that she chose vineyards that she likes herself. She let us take our time at each place and asked whether we wanted to visit... More

How can you not love a day out in a cute Combi, tasting beautiful wines in a gorgeous part of NZ, spending time with the fabulous Colleen? This tour was well-organised, personal, friendly, accommodating and heaps of fun. We visited five vineyards, stopping off for lunch at the exquisite Wairau River Wines, making it just the right amount of different... More
