Owen was our tour guide and we LOVED our tour! Owen was knowledgable and personable. Great trip. It was a beautiful day, so he took us to some nice look-outs and the wineries and breweries were excellent selections. He was our driver throughout the trip so we didn't worry about having a sober drive between the three of us traveling together. He went the extra mile the entire time. Would recommend Owen and Bay Tours for any of your travel wishes. Thanks for everything!

Kia ora / Howdy Maya and friends from Sunny Nelson.
I've just been down to feed the sheep here :-) Thanks so much for the wonderful review. Kapai!!!
It was a pleasure hosting you all for the afternoon and showing you the sights around Nelson including feeding the sheep, tasting some fabulous wines and enjoying the beer tasting session at Bays Brewery. I hope you have checked out the pics we took and I like the one of you all enjoying lunch at historic Port Mapua. Fish and Chips in a lovely setting with good mates. Glad you all arrived home safely and hopefully no further traffic problems :-) haha.
Have a wonderful summer. Today in Nelson it is fine and sunny but we had a frosty start. Thanks again. Kapai!!!

We had such a lovely day - the weather was frightful (rain, wind, hospital roof came off) but it didn't matter at all! Owen and his brother were excellent hosts, we visited two wineries and two breweries and I can't recommend Bay Tours enough! Apart from any other considerations, it is essential to have a sober driver when wine tasting!

Owen couldn't do more for us he was friendly, polite & knowledgeable about the area and the various sites we went to. He made sure we all had a great day out and definately went the extra mile for us all. I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend his company if you are in Nelson and want a fab day out tasting different wines, beers & spirits.

Kia ora / Hi Paul.
Mate thanks so much for doing the Review. It was great having you guys in Nelson and we are very pleased to hear you enjoyed the day out with us. The Liquid Alchemy Distillery was a good way to end the day wasn't it! Hoep all is well in the UK. We have the Prince and Princess here at the moment! Alas they didn't come out on a tour with us :-) Next time maybe after you have a word with them please :-)
Have a great 2014 Paul and all the very best from us Kiwi's

Owen was an amazing and caring tour guide who took us to 5 vineyards and a brewery. We had good size pours from a wide selection of local favorites. It was a wonderful overall experience and I feel like I was able to truly step into learning about the wines of New Zealand!l
