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

We spent the day with Colleen. Visited 6 wineries. She was very responsive to our requests and preferences catering the places we visited to whatever we wanted and changed it throughout the day even. Great Value!

Had a great day in the van with Colleen, we visited 5 wineries on the half day tour - all of which we enjoyed. Highly recommended, and in our opinion great value for money as all tastings and transport included in the cost.

My friends and I had the best experience touring the Wairau Valley vineyards at our own pace yesterday with Colleen from Highlight! Our guide was knowledgeable and relaxed and recommended some great and varied places to visit. Superb time had by all and would do again in a heartbeat!
