My wife and I spent a fabulous day with Dave (and the other tasters) tripping around a good range of different wineries. Dave was a really nice guy and took us where he thought would be best based on our preferences for wines. He was extremely knowledgeable about the region and the individuals involved in the wineries. We had a... More

We were collected by Colleen at Blenheim train station and she made us feel welcome and comfortable from the first 'Hello!'. From there we joined the rest of the group where we were introduced and she already knew enough about everyone to share similarities between us. The group bonded very quickly thanks to Colleen's warm and friendly nature. We had... More

Colleen is a lovely lady, who was very enthusiastic and informative which made our afternoon tour a lot of fun. We went to a few smaller wineries where we tried some delicious white wine and had lunch at Wairau River, who serve reasonably priced but gorgeous food. The last stop was at the boutique chocolate factory who serve completely natural,... More

Just completed a full day tour with Colleen. Off to a rocky start with some driving instructions for Colleen :). Incredible day, well organised, superb itinerary that catered to our every wish. Will be recommending Highlight tours for some time. Thanks Colleen.

Booked the all day wine tour and Dave was our host and driver. There were 8 people on our trip and we visited 5 Wineries and a final stop at the Makana Chocolate Shop. Dave's commentary and knowledge of the vineyards helped to make this a memorable day out - highly recommended.

We took the full day tour and were hosted by Pamela, who was a real star. She was so welcoming, and she paced the day perfectly. We were the only couple on the tour for the first hour, which was like having our own private tour, and joined by just one other couple late morning. Highlight wineries for us were... More

An excellent day out. We were picked up by Pamela in the ten seat mini bus and shared an entertaining day with three English and one American couple. We visited five vineyards in total and had (I think) 31 tastings - not sure about the count!! Our second stop was at Rocks Ferry where we has a very good lunch.... More

He knows a lot about the area and it was an very good alterive to cycling in the rain for me. Furthermore the wines are great!!... More
