“Wine / beer tour 17 June 14”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Hi Owen,
Norm, Alana, Kath and myself thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Both the vehicle and yourself were immaculately turned out. Your knowledge of the area was obvious from the patter and the venues selected.
Of the various events we participated during the 6 days in Nelson area yours topped the poll on the way home, next down was the Sky wire.

Kia ora Malcolm.
Thanks a lot guys for taking the time to review our day out together. Its always appreciated as we know how busy people are when they get home from holidays. I hoped you liked the pics we took of the day out. Lighthouse brewery was a hoot wasn't it! How was the cheese from Wangapeka Cheese? I got some more there yesterday and it was amazing especially the Brie :-) Anyway glad you all got home safely and as I said Thanks so much for the review. See you again here in sunny Nelson one day in the future. Take care and best wishes / nga mihi nui Owen.

“Fantastic tour and your guide”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We really enjoyed the tour we went on, covering 2 wineries, 2 breweries, and a lovely lunch. More wine than we could drink, and lovely scenery to boot. Owen was our your guide, he was knowledgable, helpful, and a great facilitator. Weather was stunning, and Owen showed us around the countryside.
Best thing we did in Nelson.

“Wine, Brews and Views Tour- Fantastic”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

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!!!

“A Wonderful Day”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

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!
