Read reviews when in the UK and booked the trip when we arrived in New Zealand. Booked for the full day tour and Collen was amazing. She picked us up for our site and from the start gave us a warm welcome. The day is arranged around the group and she is open to suggestions of wineries to go to.... More

Colleen organised the most fantastic afternoon tour for our group... Although we were extremely short on time, nothing was too much trouble and we managed to fit in a late lunch, 3 wineries, handmade chocolates, beer tasting and dinner to finish! The organisation, attention to detail, and willingness to go the extra mile was just astounding. Larissa was a brilliant... More

We did an afternoon wine tour with Dave. There were nine of us In total. My husband and I had a fantastic time with everyone and our guide Dave was amazing. He took in consideration everyone's interest (type of grape/wines..) and made sure to please everyone as we toured several wineries. It was a very relaxed atmosphere, we never felt... More

Can only re-iterate the other fantastic comments! The trip was amazing from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble for Colleen. We'll be back to New Zealand and this will definitely be the first trip we book.

We had a great day visiting wineries with Colleen! She was a lovely guide, providing a relaxed atmosphere & going with the group's pace. She has obviously built up a great rapport with a lot of the cellar doors, & we felt very welcome everywhere we went. Would happily recommend to others!

My husband and I had a fantastic day out with Colleen from Highlight Tours, right from the beginning, where she apologised for being 3 minutes late!! to dropping us off right next to our campervan in the holiday park we were staying at in Blenheim after the tour ended. She was very informative and great fun. It was a very... More

A great wine tasting tour - with the choice of vineyards tailored to suit the tastes of those in each group. Small groups. Relaxed pace. Good commentary on the area and the wines. A good day out!
