Naomi was our guide in this lovely tour. She is a fantastic lady! We have visited four excellent wineries. It is totally worth doing. The train journey from Wellington is nice and easy. Just have your printed booking and get the tickets at the station, as they will instruct you in a confirmation e-mail.
