? Limo hire for winery tour

Hi we are a group of 4 looking to hire a limo to do a winery tour (on Wed 3rd March).

Can anyone recommend a good company to go with or have any past experience with this?

And does anyone know what a good price is for something like this?

hello Bennic

There is no need to hire a luxury car for a wine tour as most of the numerous Queenstown wine tours use a luxury vehicle. Plus they can create a private tour for just the four of you if you prefer.

Google queenstown wine tour and you will find quite a few options.

Bannockburn also has some wonderful vineyards to visit - this can be done in tandem with the Queenstown wineries. Plus many have excellent kitchens so you won't go hungry.

And if heading over to Wanaka you can visit Rippon Vineyard - the world's most photographed vineyard - by horseback. Even this Queenstown wine tour company uses a photo of Wanaka's Rippon to advertise their tours http://www.winetime.co.nz/

Enjoy :)

Agree with WanakaLakes. Book or customize a wine tour with one of the established operators - Queenstown Wine Trail or Appellation are both good. You'll then have a knowledgeable guide ..........not just a driver

Thanks for the input guys. I think part of the problem was one person in the group doesn't drink wine so it seemed silly paying $150+ for them to go on a tour when they're not going to get much out of it. I thought if we could hire a car with a fridge/bar they could still drink during the day.

From what you have said I think we will look into customising a tour like you suggested, thanks!
