We always look for smaller wine tours . We find they are more fun and have more character. This tour hit the mark. Vince is very knowledgeable but doesn't take the fun out of it for less experienced guests. We visited four vineyards and enjoyed each of them in a different way. We lucked out .

Vince is very knowledgeable as a wine connoisseur and host to the wines of Napier. He takes the time to determine your likes in wine and matches them to the appropriate vineyard. He is a pleasant and entertaining host indeed. Great value for the cost.

A real highlight of our recent tour of New Zealand and especially in Napier. We had a very enjoyable afternoon at 4 wineries. We'd have never found these boutique wineries and driving and tasting would be impossible. There were about 8 or 9 on our tour in two minivans so very comfortable, relaxing & entertaining. Our fellow travellers were friendly... More

We chose Vinces Wine Tour based on the reviews. We wanted to see Mission wines and Church Road so when we called and spoke to them, they said it was possible. We didn't get to these places and I have since found out they have about 12 favourite wineries they prefer to visit and choose the wineries that best suit... More

This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Napier. Had a fantastic day out- great wine, yummy cheese platter and Vince is an extremely accommodating (not to mention hilarious) host!

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
