I decided at the last minute to find a tour over the weekend whilst staying in Auckland for business. Phil replied within 30 minutes of my email and arranged a hotel pick up the next morning. There were only 5 of us on the tour, so lots of time for friendly chat during the relaxing drive. The wine tasting was... More

We were lucky enough to be the only two on Phil's wine tour. Weather was great and the tour was brilliant. Phil was welcoming and very informative. Took us to four great wineries, Mt Eden on a clear morning and the black sand beach. Brilliant day out and great tour.

My wife and I went on Phil's wine tour as part of our honeymoon. The friendly service was excellent and Phil really looked after us on the tour. His personal relationships with the staff/owners of the wineries really made the tour special and we got to see "behind the scenes" and see the wine being made. Phil is clearly passionate... More

We travelled to NZ in June (two couples) and it was a must to experience the great food NZ has to offer. I initially was going to book the WAIHEKE ISLAND PARADISE tour, but I emailed Phil to discuss my options from his website and highlighted that we were more about the food then the wine, so he pointed us...
