We decided to go with Vince's World of Wine based on the trip advisor reviews and are very pleased that we did. We rang the day before and were able to book for an afternoon tour the following day. Vince picked us up from our motel in Napier and we then picked up some sisters who were joining us, so... More

Vinces World of Wine was recommended to us by our motel and we were not disappointed. Vince was a great host, friendly and knowledgeable. He's lived in the area for many years and seems to know everyone. He takes time to get to know his guests and tailors the tour to suit. We enjoyed a fantastic afternoon visiting 5 vineries... More

Awsome tour! What can we say, he took great care of us. Took us to five wineries, we had a taste of 120$ wine in one of them, and at the end even took us to the city and gave us a private little tour! Thanks again. It was really a great experience.

WELL WHAT AN EXPERIENCE - VINCE'S TOUR WAS A RIPPER!! We arrived in Napier and at very short notice decided to take a half day wine tour. Luckily we snagged Vince's tour from the available brochures. We rang Vince and he agreed to come within the hour with a four wineries visit. We hadn't eaten so he arranged a sit... More

Went on a tour with Vince a month or so ago, only just got round to writing this due a rather hectic lifestyle... A must do if you're in the area, and definitely the one to go for! Everyone else on our trip backed out due to illness, so it was just me and a friend, but we got to... More

We booked Vince's 1/2 day wine tour on the recommendation of Napier locals. Vince is a good host and ensures his guests are able to sample some of Hawkes Bay's finest wines from a variety of wineries. Thank you, Vince! We will be back!

We did the half day wine tour which was great! We were able to sample about 30 wines. Vince is an amazing tour guide and took us to some of the greatest vineyards in the area. He was also very flexible withe the pick up and drop off locations. I would highly recommend his tours. The pricing is also great... More

We had half a day to spare in Napier, and chose to go on Vince's Wine Tour. We didn't regret that for a second; one of the best wine tours we've ever been at. 30+ wines I believe we tasted, many of them very good and fairly exclusive. The trip was excellently tailored to our taste and preference; would recommend... More

Even though there were only two of us, and it was off season, Vince came and picked us up and took us on a well-thought out tour of small wineries, advising us when to buy and when to wait for the next place, and arranging for a cheese plate at our last stop when we began to get hungry in... More

My partner and I went to Napier for our recent anniversary and were absolutely thrilled with Vince's tour. He quickly identified the types of wine we were interested in and coordinated the tour accordingly. I would highly recommend for anyone visiting the Hawkes Bay!
