We booked an afternoon tasting with Highlight Wine Tours on the day of our arrival in Blenheim - figured it was the best way to stay active and fight off the jet lag. Colleen, our driver and guide, thought this was pretty hilarious! Colleen picked us up at our hotel and drove us to two wineries before we met up... More

Colleen is not only incredibly knowledgeable about wines and the region, but she goes out of her way to make sure every guest is having a great time. The customer service was top-notch. After visiting several beautiful vineyards throughout the day, Colleen was concerned about us driving our campervan after we had been drinking. She called her husband and he... More

Couldn't have asked for a better wine tour. Colleen was professional and fun giving a relaxed and insightful tour of the best wine cellars. Perfect for people travelling alone, couples or groups. I was given VIP treatment for the day and loved the experience. A must do trip.

Our winery tour host was Colleen who was great fun, witty, personable and really knew her stuff. We booked a full day tour and nothing seemed like too much trouble for Colleen. We were collected from our BandB at precisely the time specified and while we obviously stuck to a time schedule, Colleen changed venues to accommodate us and made... More

We did a full day wine tour on New Years Day and it was absolutely excellent - a great range of wineries, flexibility, and excellent knowledge of the region and its wines. Dave, our tour guide read our group well to keep all members at a pace that worked for everyone which was very impressive. Can not recommend this tour... More

We chose an afternoon tour that took us to 4 different wine estates: Drylands (Kim Crawford), Rock Ferry, Villa Maria and Spy Valley. The real good surprise was Rock Ferry which also has the second best restaurant in the region. Dave, owner and our guide, was great, with excellent humor and knowledge. The trip ended in Makana chocolate factory which... More
