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 great day out, tasting some excellent wines that are produced in the area. Greg was the perfect guide, with his knowledge and relaxed approach. Would book this trip again!!

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

A group of eight on the tour, we visited four wineries - Sileni, Ash Ridge, Ngatarawa and Trinity Hill. Between our guide, Peter, and the various people hosting the tastings, we learned about the local area and the wines. Stopped for wine and cheese at Ngatarawa. A really pleasant afternoon, highly recommended.

We had an afternoon tour, with a group of eight. Pete, our guide, was very knowledgeable and had some fun stories. The wineries had interesting wine, and we had a nice wine and cheese break. The weather was fantastic, all in all a very good way to spend an afternoon. Bought a few bottles of wine to enjoy later.

Picked Grape Escape after reading the trip advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. Our tour was small, two couples plus Greg our guide. We visited four vineyards, all very different from small local family business to large export winery. Wines were really good (we bought six bottles) and the vineyard hosts were fun and informative with none of the pretentiousness... More

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
