Is the more enjoyable guided tour I've been on. Colleen was an exceptional host with in depth knowledge of most wineries. My fiancé and I were taken to six different wineries with a stop into a chocolate shop and Moa brewery. Colleen was friendly, funny and made the day very enjoyable. :)

It's hard to imagine how this tour could be better. From the moment Colleen picked us up from the motel we were enchanted buy her bubbly personality and knowledge of the wine industry. She provided a well paced tour that left everyone on tour satisfied with the experience. We had the chance to sample some of Marlborough's finest wines, have... More

Thank you Coleen for such a wonderful experience! We put our experience in her hands as we are not too clued up on our wines. She chose 5 wineries that all had a different appeal. She helped us understand the wine business through her commentary between our stops to helpful information during our different tastings about the wine itself. The... More

Had a fantastic day with Coleen. She was such a lovely, knowledgeable guide who gave us so much insight to the world of wine in Marlborough. The tour itself was great. We visited 6 wineries and finished off with a quick stop at a chocolate factory. Really enjoyable day for everyone, well worth the price. Thanks Coleen and Dave.

Excellent wine tour. Our host was awesome. She was knowledgable and fun. Our group was a nice mix and we enjoyed their company as much as the tour. Well done. I highly recommend you include the lunch. The place is amazing and that was one mistake we made. Thanks for the wonderful afternoon

We were able to visit 4 wineries and the chocolate factory. We highly enjoyed our lunch at the Wairau River Winery Restaurant. Thank you Colleen for a lovely... More

Pickup and drop off right at our door! The day wine tour was a brilliant mix of small & larger wineries as well as an excellent lunch. This was all hosted by the friendly and knowledgeable Coleen who made the whole tour fun and informative. This tour was a highlight of our trip to NZ and we recommend it as... More

This is such a happy memory of our time in New Zealand... if a little hazy! Me and my partner are big wine fans and the amount of tastings we got on this tour was unreal! David drove us around in a little minivan all day and he was very knowledgeable and friendly answering all of our questions and telling... More

We booked a few days before for a full day wine tour for a bargain price of 75NZD and visited 6 vineyards, a food shop and a chocolate factory. Had the best day of our long trip to New Zealand touring with Highlight and our guide Colleen was absolutely outstanding. Anyone visiting Marlborough MUST do a wine tour with Highlight.... More
