We (4 adults) went wine tasting in the 1959 Cadillac and had a great time with Mike the driver. He took us to some great wineries. We had lunch overlooking the vineyards at Brancott Estate--highly recommend.

My first trip back to Blenheim in 17 years and we were met at the airport and then an itinerary was planned and off we went with Colleen to 3 vineyards and a chocolate maker. Colleen knew her wines and was so friendly and fun as a tour guide/driver. If you are lucky you will get a special thrill at... More

We looked at a few tour operators but based on the #1 rating on Trip Advisor we booked this one and we are so glad that we did! They had better options for length of tours and they were so reasonably priced. Colleen was our guide and her partner Dave was driving the other bus as they were heavily booked... More

From the time that Colleen picked us up from our great accommodation at Havelock Motel we were looked after in first class style. Colleens knowledge and attention to detail in attending the magnificent wineries of the Marlborough region made sure we attended at times when we practically had the wonderful owners and staff to ourselves. Colleen's choice of lunch venue... More

We did a full-day wine tour with Dave, and it was excellent. We started with a few other folks in our van, and then during our second stop Dave left to pick up additional passengers who’d signed up for the half-day tour. He began by asking everyone about their wine preferences, to tailor the day’s intinerary accordingly. Although the pace... More

This was the most anticipated wine tour during our 11 week trip to Australia and New Zealand last year. It certainly didn't disappoint. Our party of four had decided to make this tour extra special and booked the all day limo option. Our driver / guide David showed up promptly at our hotel and away we went for the day.... More

Just after a full tour with Coleen from Highlight tours today and it was fantastic we booked the full day tour and it was worth every cent. We visited 7 vineyards, had lunch in Rockferry, visited a chocolate factory and a pub as well. We managed to sample 46 wines in total and came away with more nuggets of wisdom... More

Highlights were great to deal with and we had a fabulous day on the tour seeing the region and visiting the wineries. For a little bit more they picked us and our luggage up from Picton at the start of the day and at the end dropped us off at our next nights accommodation in Blenheim. Pamela our tour guide... More

A brilliant, friendly company. So helpful and knowledgeable about the area while being laid back and lots of fun. Lovely that they picked destinations based on our preferences and what they thought we would like. They got it right and we visited some great places with a fab guide
