We only visited 3 wineries instead of the 4-5 advertised on the website. Also, there was no cheese board, also as advertised, which meant we went for 4 hours with no food, while drinking. The regular tour host was overseas, and one of the replacements was more concerned about asking the winemakers about his own vineyard. We emailed with our... More

Sorry you had such a bad experience. Yes I have been away a couple of operators had to cover for me. I did not receive and email about your complaint and if I had i would have replied immediately and offered you a refund. 3 wineries and no cheese board is inexcusable. Can you give me the name of the... More

Collected from our Napier hotel at midday, and spent the next five hours on the most informative, and fun filled winery tour to be found in the Hakes Bay. Excellent choice of wineries, very generous tastings and sampling at the chosen cellar doors. Hugely recommended to any wine lover.

We had a wonderful day with Greg touring this glorious country. We even ordered wine and had it shipped. When it did not arrive in the States, we emailed Greg. He tracked it down, making the wine and our day with Greg even more delicious.

Great guide and fantastic wineries. Nice group size and we had an amazing day where we shared two bottles of wine and a cheese platter at the last winery. Can definitely recommend this wine tour.

We had a great day out in Napier with Grape Escape. We were picked up from the hotel and dropped back there later that day. We went to 5 wineries in total and learnt A LOT about wine, more so than any of the winery tours we have been on before. The vineyard we went to for lunch was very... More

This tour was the highlight of my recent trip to NZ. Greg was knowledgeable and informative. His laid back nature made for an excellent day of wine tasting. I have recommended this tour to friends and family as it makes for a great day out! Thanks again Greg, for an awesome day in the Hawkes Bay!

Returning customer and Greg has not changed in the few years (11) since last been in the region. Again great tour from different wineries, even picking up Ash Ridge Syrah Jelly, taking it to our next destination supplying the group with different types of cheeses and biscuits and with the jelly on top was simply delicious.

Fabulous and informative tour of the local Hawkes Bay wineries, Greg certainly has a great way of helping you get the most out of the trip. His knowledge about wines and how they are made exceed any other trip I have been on.

We visited 4 wineries in an afternoon. Peter was a friendly and very knowledgable host. We went to a great selection of vineyards with a wide range of wines to taste. It was great to have the organisation taken care of. Peter also provided a cheese platter. A fantastic afternoon.
