What a brilliant day out! Waking up with no expectations of the day we were excited to head out and sample our favorite wine, Malborough Sauvignon Blanc. Little did we know we'd spend the day sampling a range of delicious wines. Colleen was an outstanding host, she really cared about what we were interested in and tailored the trip according... More

We booked the stretch limo for a full day of wine tasting. It was one of our splurges and was fun, the cost shared between 4 adults. David took the time to find out our wine tastes and tailor the tour accordingly. He was friendly and informative. We received great service in all the wineries. The only disappointing thing is...

One of my favourite days spent in New Zealand. Coleen was so much fun and so obliging. We had such a nice day going to wineries of our choice. We did the full day tour and it was the perfect amount of time. Would highly recommend this tour :-)

We booked a half day tour with Highlights and it was a brilliant day out. There were five of us including a non wine drinker, I know why did he come on a wine tour?!, all with very different experiences in wine tasting. Coleen made sure that everyone tastes were catered for and varied the day according to our requests... More

Thank you David for a fantastic tour back in April! You made it really enjoyable despite the horrible weather and we came back with some lovely wine. David sent out of his way to help us and picked us up and dropped us off to our Campervan in the middle of nowhere!

We did the 1/2 day afternoon tour while in Blenheim, which was the perfect amount of guided vineyard visiting we were looking for, especially while staying at gorgeous St. Leonard's vineyards, as you never want to leave the grounds! Some tips, as all of the reviews are generally the same in agreement that it's a great tour. In the shuttle... More

I live locally and for my birthday my wife took me on a tour with these great people Colleen and Dave Harper. From start to finish it was educational, entertaining, exciting. Don't look elsewhere; stop here at Highlight.

It was a brilliant way to spend a day, not only because the Marlborough region and the wineries but Colleen was a fantastic tour guide, real friendly, informative, patient and good banter. I highly recommend Highlight... More

The driver picked us up, drove us to wineries and drove us back to our hotel. She was nice but didn’t have any kind of microphone in the van so she was hard to hear. She did not seem to know a lot about wine. She was more of a driver than a wine tour guide. She also told our... More
