Packed full of interesting sights and tastings; Phil was full of knowledge and took us to some amazing places. We sampled local cheeses, ice cream, wine, chocolate and had a beautiful lunch in a vineyard. We bought gifts and delicious treats for ourselves along the way getting to meet boutique style growers and producers. On top of this Phil helped... More

Phil was the perfect guide: wine expert...really. Informative without talking too much. Great listener. Fun to talk with. Seems to have very personal relationships with many of the personnel we met at the four vineyards. Thoroughly enjoyable

My parents, sister, and I ended an 18 day South Pacific cruise in Auckland and had scheduled the "Volcano Coast & Country Tour" with Phil. This was definitely one of the highlights of our entire trip. Phil picked us up from our hotel and took us to Mount Eden where we saw amazing views of Auckland. We then visited the... More

I had 1 final day in Aukland before leaving New Zealand and the Waiheke Island tour with Phil was an excellent choice. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in fine wine and food. The tour started just as advertised, the ferry boat ride to Waiheke was a great transition and the actual island tour was outstanding, with several... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our few hours out with Phil. and would recommend it to others. We were lucky to have his cheese and crackers all to ourselves. This is a nice touch which we appreciated as there were quite a few wines to taste and a bit of food along the way helped. Lunch was also excellent. We hadnt been... More

Excellent tour of four wineries, Kumeu River, Soljans, West Brook and Matua Valley, with stops at Mount Eden and Muriwai Beach to round up the feel for the area. Highly recommended for wine lovers and those who prefer small, personable and very well organised tours. Phil provided a hand-out full of information on the wineries and stops during the tour,...
