Many thanks Greg for a fantastic day sampling many vine yards. You were really good fun to be with and made the day special. We were collected exactly when we were told & everything was beyond our expectations. Excellent value for money.

Wife being on tablets decided that a wine tour was probably not a good idea so she forced me to go on my own. Made to feel welcome as soon as I was collected from our accommodation and given a quick intro to what we would be doing. The whole trip was a lot of fun, the wines of the... More

What an amazing way to spend an afternoon! We tasted all kinds of wine and learned so much about the area and the process. Our guide was very knowledgeable and personable! It was such a fantastic day!

We had a great time sampling wines in Hawkes Bay with Greg from Great Escape. Greg picked us up from our hotel (it was just my girlfriend and me on the tour that day which made it feel like a private tour). We visited 4 vineyards with a good mix of some large vineyards that sell wine internationally to a... More

We booked the gourmet trip and were surprised/delighted to find that we were given a private tour by Pete in a super car. He was very informative (and excellent company) and took us to a tremendous cross section of different wineries which gave us a great appreciation of the area. Some of the wineries had incredibly beautiful buildings and restaurants... More

Unfortunately our tour started really late due to the Napier Art Deco festival being on, the company didn't really plan for the road closures and so our tour kicked off over an hour late. This meant that the tour became a bit of a rush and we missed the last vineyard. That said the tour guide and driver was a... More

We had a really enjoyable trip with Greg. He's well informed and relaxed and right at home in this arena. The vineyards we visited gave a great variety of taste and of course we made more than a few purchases. Our lunch stop was perfect! We were only three on the trip so don't be shy about calling to do... More

We were picked up, at our door, by Peter and taken on an adventure for 4 hours. Our group included people from the UK, Canada and New Zealand. Peter was very informative and obviously took pride in his wine region. Our tour took in 4 wineries and he set a reasonable pace that allowed us to gain some insight without... More
