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 visited Waiheke Island with Phil on a one day trip. Arranging the trip was easy online and through email - Phil responded quickly, answered questions and solved problems with calm efficiency. He met us on time and discussed our options for the day with us. His choices were impeccable for the wineries to visit and we felt well-looked after... 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...

My girlfriend and I went on Phil'S Scenic Coast and Country Tour. Phil picked us up from our hotel. He was right on time. Phil was very knowledgeable about not just the wineries and the different wines we were going to taste but also some history of New Zealand. The tastings at the wineries were fun, informational, and very well... More

Phil was recommended by friends from Houston who do business in New Zealand and are vinophiles like us. The entire tour was set up on line. He met us right on the Auckland cruise dock with a written tour agenda just for the two of us (he can take several more). He immediately took us to the mountain top -... More

This tour was a highlight of our Auckland adventures! Phil shared so much of his extensive local knowledge with us and showed us a well thought out variety of wineries in the area. The staff at the wineries were very friendly and attentive. We enjoyed meeting Mr Merlot - he is a great wine tour mascot. Lunch was excellent! A... More

We booked a last minute tour with Phil to Kumeu last month. We were the only three people touring which meant Phil was our personal guide. Phil was welcoming and friendly, he took us to 4 wineries of differing sizes and styles, bringing a cheeseboard for us to enjoy with the wine we tasted (nice touch but missing the blue!).... More

Took some Aussie friends around the Kumeu area and introduced them to Nz wines. Phil Parker showed us a good variation in wines and wineries. I work locally and didn't know about one of the wineries. A great day was had and Phil's expert input was low key but invaluable.
