We booked onto a 4 hour winery tour a few days ahead of the long weekend, Jan 2013. Greg was fantastic, we got picked up from our hotel in a lovely air conditioned van at the promised time, and taken to 4 different wineries. He was attentive during the tour and made sure we were all having a great time... More

We throughly enjoyed our recent wine tour, it made a nice change to be driven and to sample wines that you would not normally taste. The tour was well organised and value for money. The Ashridge Estate was our favourite. Sheena & Mark

We had a whole day tour first led by Greg and later by Neil. Both men were friendly and good conversationalists. Our motel is located at the outskirt of Napier. We were very pleased when Greg offered to drive us to the centre of Napier to view the famous Art Deco buildings. This was in addition to the winery tour.... More

Our host, Greg, started the experience off well by arriving right on time. The Kiwi vs Aussie interplay started early and set the tone for a great day. We were joined by some English, Kiwi and American couples and the group melded well. The four Wineries we visited were diverse and the presenters were all very passionate and knowledgable at...

Our party of three joined a Sunday afternoon tour with our host, Neil. We were promptly collected from our hotel and were fortunate to be joined by some friendly Canadiens and Brits. We enjoyed the personalised tastings at each of the wineries. A highlight was the cheese platters we shared at Ngatarawa winery alongside their Versailles-style lake. An excellent way... More

The half day wine tour was a great experience. The wineries were very professional and offer sampling of 7-8 wines at each of the 4 wineries we visited. I would highly recommend this tour to people looking to have a good time and learn about wine at the same time.

Did the 4 hour, 4 vineyard tour on a beautiful Wednesday in November. Very relaxed and pleasant afternoon, we felt Greg really went out of his way to show us great local wineries you most likely wouldn't find on your own. Even stopped off at a couple of roadside fruit stalls to stock up as well! The final tasting, accompanied... More

A fantastic day out and a great introduction to Hawkes Bay wines. Good host who also gave information about Napier as well as the wineries. Would recommend to anyone visiting Napier.

We did the 4 hour, 4 winery visit tour. Our host promptly collected us from our hotel in a small sized bus perfect for the sized group. He gave us info on certain spots along the way to our trip. We spent ample time at each winery and enjoyed a cheese platter sitting around talking to the other tourists. There... More

I took this tour some time ago back in June and totally loved it. Everything was perfect, from making a booking over the phone, getting picked up from the hotel to the very last winery on the way. Quite relaxed and informative, good way to learn more about the Hawke's Bay region and meet people. With a few (5 or... More
