Colleen was our guide and we couldn't have asked for any more. The tour was tailored between us and another couple. Her choices of wineries to visit were great. Only 4 of us in the minibus so plenty of room. Pickup was on time and the restaurant we went to for lunch was brilliant. Would tour with Colleen again next... More

We had a wonderful day with Dave from Highlight. He customized the tour to what we wanted to see. The minibus was awesome!

We left a camera behind and... More

Couldn't have asked for a better winery tour than with Dave! A great day spent driving around Marlborough. We went to 5 wineries and enjoyed an amazing lunch at Wairau River Winery. Very obliging to take you to boutique wineries and providores in the area. Thanks Dave!

We took the afternoon tour with Highlight Wine Tours in winter and were absolutely happy. We visited 5 wineries and had some great tastings. Our guide also took the time to find out who liked which kind of wine and chose the wineries accordingly. Best thing was that we were picked up directly in front of our and campground and... More

Thanks Colleen for an excellent day out from start to finish. Four adults and a four-year-old were treated to four wineries (Framingham's was the best), an extremely delicious lunch at Wairau River Winery, finished the day with tasting a selection of beers at Dodson Street. We were comfortable in the van, our preferences were taken into account when planning the... More

We did they winery tour by limo- what a special amazing day. From the moment Dave picked us up in Picton we knew it was going to be fun. Dave was such a great driver and guide. His knowledge and friendliness made the day perfect! The wineries we visited were a great range of varieties too. Highly recommend!!

Had an awsome day with this tour. Great advice and history of the region. They catered for our needs and was great to have the flexibility to visit to wineries that was best suited to our tastes. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Driver was so lovely and she had such a good sense of humour.

We had a great day! Superb wine and a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. The whole trip was very personal and our guide was happy to tailor our tour to suit us. It was everything we had hoped it would be! I would definitely go again if I found myself in the region once more.
