We only had a day and a half in the Marlborough region so we really wanted to make the most of our time there. We chose the half day wine tour with lunch which I felt was the perfect amount of time. We visited some absolutely beautiful wineries and Pam was a wonderful guide - so friendly. The van was... More

Our trip in the Marborough valley was just perfect with "Highlight Wine Tours". Coleen our tour guide picked us up from our accommodation and we visited some well-chosen vineyards. Coleen just made our trip very memorable. She is not only very knowledgeable and passionate about wines she is also a very bubbly bright person which gave the overall experience a... More

We arrived in the Malborough Region on Friday the 31st of May 2015 and asked the hotel to arrange a wine tour for us. We were met the next day by Colleen of Highlight Wine Tours who after a very warm welcome, collected some more guests who were also welcomed aboard by Colleen . She guided us around the region's...

This tour was our second with Highlight and we were far from being disappointed. From our pick up to drop off, Colleen went well beyond accommodating the groups needs and ensured that the day was memorable, so much so, we are already planning for a return in February.

Done a wine tour with highlight wine tours several years ago and enjoyed it immensely so we thought we would do it again and weren't disappointed. Colleen arrived and collected us, we were all welcomed and felt at ease with her. We had a large group of 11 others which I personally thought would be terrible but as we all... More

3 friends and I went on a tour in the Cadillac yesterday with Dave. Dave was so knowledgable, friendly and helpful. Of course the Cadillac made it that extra bit special. I highly recommend Highlight Wine Tours and can't wait to go again, maybe in one of the Mustangs next time ;)

Our driver, Colleen, picked us up from our accommodations at the appointed time and our fantastic day with her began. We only had one other person on the tour with us, which was the all-day tour (10am – 5pm). Colleen allowed us to select which wineries we wanted to visit, and offered helpful suggestions to compliment our interests. A very... More

David, the owner, was our guide for the day and it was a perfect way to learn about wines, see the countryside, and get insights from an experienced guide on the wineries and history of the area. The tour ran on time, and we were never pressured to purchase anything at any time. David picked us up in Picton, and... More

Step one: phone and book tour, greeted with friendly and flexiable owners. Step two: picked up on time and asked our preferences. Step three: great mix of winerys to visit we went to five in total which included a lunch stop. (In between visits we had a wee introduction to the next winery) Step four: accidently fell in love with... More
