I'm so pleased that I booked my Hawkes Bay wine tour with Greg at Grape Escape. I did the half day. We visited 4 beautiful wineries and in addition to the generous tasters and info at each one, Greg shared his extensive wine knowledge, local points of interest and history and great sense of humour. He also introduced me to... More

As a group of 8 we were keen to do a private tour. We needed to start a little earlier than normal so we could finish by 4pm. Our driver Pete did not mind at all. He was exceptional the whole tour with incredible knowledge of the area and wine. The tour was supposed to be 4 hours, I think... More

Using Grape Escape (and Greg) was the best way to visit wineries. We were picked up at our hotel and spent the afternoon visitng 4 wineries. What we didn't realize before the tour was that because of Greg's knowledge and experiences, we were able to get a more in-depth tasting and history of the winery. During the afternoon, Greg provides... More

We had a brilliant wine tour with Pete today. He is so knowledgeable about the local wines and so enthusiastic about sharing what he knows. We visited 4 vineyards and tasted around 25-30 wines and had a lovely wine and cheese break in the middle. I'm writing this before the hangover hits in the morning. If you are thinking about...

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Denise who was informative and fun. With hindsight I think we would on a future occasion try to find a tour in the afternoon (if such exist), as many of the subtleties of the Hawke's Bay wines were lost on us in the middle of the day. Would have no hesitation in recommending the... More

I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. From the moment we climbed into the van, Greg regaled us with stories about the region and loads of information about the wines we would be experiencing. He is a superb guide with just the right balance of information and entertainment. His knowledge about the geography and about the wineries is not to... More

We enjoyed a wonderful day out at the wineries with Greg being a fantastic host. He took us to a varied and good range of wineries with some lovely wines. We also enjoyed a beautiful lunch at a winery as part of the tour. A great day out!

A fantastic wine and dine tour with Grape Escape. My friend and I were picked up by Denise at our motel just after 11AM, driven in an air conditioned mini-bus along with 5 other visitors, who were also from the UK, to our first winery. We visited a total of 6 wineries during the 6.5 hour tour, tasting at least... More

Four vineyards on Napier, and a cheese platter at the end, perfect! Very friendly host, I really recommend it.
