We booked the deluxe tour which takes you to 5 wineries. Peter was our guide & totally made our tour. We learnt alot about the region and the wines, Peter is passionate about the area and has a lot to offer. Thoroughly recommend Grape EscapeTours. Very entertaining way to spend the day.

Communication & friendliness right from the start - Greg helpfully adjusted the time of his tour by half an hour to suit the P&O cruise timings to ensure we were back at the ship on time. Pete our guide was courteous, fun, and very knowledgeable. The air con van was clean and comfortable. The wineries we visited were great, plenty... More

We'd opted for the afternoon tour and our excellent guide, Robbie, picked us up bang on time. A couple of pick ups later and we were off to the wineries. Robbie did a great job of explaining the different areas within the region and we visited 4 different wineries in total, each one having a different style or approach to... More

Our host Pete had a wealth of knowledge of the local area and wine industry. The four winery's we visited ranged from small boutique to larger. The people who served us were wonderful and I must recommend Ash Ridge and Te Awa wineries to anyone visiting the area. Selini also had very friendly staff. Thanks Pete.

This tour is a rip off! We paid $95 per person (even though we were quoted $85) to be driven around from winery to winery without lunch included or even given a discount for our very tasty but over priced lunch. The first two wineries were just drive by without stopping. We were not given any preferential treatment for wine... More

Hi Thank you for the review. I’m sorry if things were rushed at some places and often this may happen during our busiest months but this is very rare. Another reason it can be rushed is that you toured with us on our National Holiday and this is one of the busiest days of the year so nothing I can... More

Pete our host was fantastic, he was very knowledgable and also very friendly and funny. We visited 4 wineries all of different sizes and locations and tasted over 30 wines. Pete also provided cheese and crackers at one of the stops which was a nice touch. The bus we travelled in was a/c and we were picked up and dropped... More

We did the private tour and we found Greg very knowledgeable, friendly, with great sense of humour. The wines we tasted were very good and our lunch was fantastic.

This wine tour was very good. Pete was knowledgable about both the area and wines. Five vineyards visited with six tasting in each. The crackers and cheese at the last stop was a nice touch. Would highly recommend.

We booked a wine tour as the Hawkes Bay wineries are plentiful and widespread; and you can't enjoy winetasting and drive ! Robbie was a fantastic guide & driver, we visited 5 wineries and were welcomed at each; they were happy to see us and knew Robbie and knew we were coming (West Auckland, you can learn from this !)...
