We booked the Grape Escape half day wine tour prior to heading to NZ having read the review on Tripadvisor. I can say that they were very reliable and we had an absolute blast on the tour and would definitely go again next time we are in Hawkes Bay. Greg informed us via email that he already had some people... More

Our tour guide was helpful and had plenty of local knowledge, being kiwis ourselves it was nice to learn something new about our own country while travelling between wine yards. Plenty of wine to be tasted, and purchased (if desired). Beautiful countryside to be viewed a great way to see a bit more of the area your in without having... More

A good way to try out Hawke's Bay vineyards without having to drive. A good mix of big brands and small family run cellar doors.

booked the half day tour and found it very good value. picked up from Napier accommodation and visited 4 wineries . Ample sampling provided. Finished the afternoon with a cheese platter ( provided) and it was a great idea to sit and share an extra bottle with other tour members ( minimal cost). Greg was very knowledgable and a great...

If you want to sample the wines of the Hawke's Bay Area and don't want to drive then this is a service I can recommend. Our guide and driver Greg picked us outside the iSite on Marine Parade in Napier and took us to four different vineyards. At each one we got to sample at least half a dozen wines... More

Our tour guide was extremely professional, but entertaining as well! He made the tour fun & catered to his guests. No rushing, no hurrying - we actually went over our time, but he did not make us feel as if we were. The tasting was great & each vineyard manager graciously offered their delicious wines with interesting facts about their... More

My friends and I planned the weekend for a bit of r & r and to get away from it all. We had the best time ever with this tour. The inclusions of meals, wine, facials and going to the markets were just what the girls needed. We really enjoyed Gregs humour and his knowledge of wine and the area.... More
