Julie and Dean were so relaxed and friendly driving us to the Cardrona Distillery and then Julie stayed with us extending our visit to the Cardrona hotel while we waited to fill in time. These little cars are so comfortable you can tell they are well loved by their owners and visitors alike. A great way to travel and still... More

My friend and I had a fantastic time driving around Central Otago with Dean from Funny French Cars. He picked us up promptly from the iSite in Wanaka town (where we booked the tour) and off we went. We visited 3 wineries over the course of 3 hours: Scott's Base, Wild Earth and Maori Point. The drive was wonderful and... More

We spent a week in beautiful Wanaka, NZ and 6 hour "backroads, wine tasting & treasures" tour we were blessed to take with Julie Nicholson as our tour guide was definitely the highlight of our trip. Julie discovered early on in our day what our interest were and made sure we enjoyed our journey. Would advise anyone visiting the area... More

This was a birthday treat for my sister-in law who was visiting from the UK. She had never done a true wine tour before so I hoped that it lived up to all expectations. It did! We were picked up at our hotel by Julie in one of their "French cars" - vintage but in perfect condition and comfortable. What... More

A friend and I had a great day out with Deane and his 2CV. He's a tall chap and I still not sure how the managed to drive it comfortably for the whole day. Still, his laid back sale set the tone really well for a great trip. We visited 5 wineries in total: all but one of them I... More

Julie our host and driver collected us, in her quirky 2CV, at our campsite and we embarked on a day to remember visiting 4 vineyards, meeting some excellent characters and of course tasting some amazing wines. We opted for the lunch at Fired Earth, again an experience to remember. The very best day out in Wanaka thanks Julie.

We had a fantastic day being shown lots of small local wineries. Julie had a wealth of knowledge on the local area. Would recommend to anybody, even the non wine drinkers.
