From the moment we emailed David & Colleen we knew we were going to have a great day. We were a party of 4 adults & 5 kids and we thought having the kids was going to be an issue. Colleen helped look after the kids and made sure they had a great day which meant we also had a... More

Thanks Colleen, we had an amazing time with you this past Saturday! The tour was so informative and catered to all of the groups needs! Well worth the money for the amount of wineries we visited! If you are looking for a full day tour I would highly recommend highlight wine tours! We had a ball!

We did the afternoon tour (1pm-5pm) and it was fantastic. We were picked up right outside our accommodation by our very friendly tour guide and were able to visit 6 (mayby 7, lost count!) vineyards in the afternoon. Although we were on the group tour going in low season (end of winter) there was only one other couple so it... More

We have had a wonderful day visiting wineries in David's fabulous Mustang convertible. Great tasting, eating and enjoying our guided tour of the best New Zealand Marlborough region has to offer. If you are after something special and intimate this is definitely the way to go, top down on the Mustang, cruising through the vineyards on a sunny day ,... More

For my husband's 50th birthday, I booked a private wine tour. Our guide, Colleen, picked us up in a '59 Cadillac--gorgeous car! We spent the day tasting at several wineries, and a gourmet lunch was included also. The day was structured around our preferences. Colleen has expertise in all the wineries around, and told us things about each winery we... More

We had a private tour (4 of us) with Colleen and had a fantastic day. She took us to some great wineries, and it was a good mix of known and not so well known but fabulous wineries. Her knowledge of wine and the area was enormous. She was also great fun. She deserves a medal after seven hours with... More

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! I was slightly sceptical about getting a minibus between only four of us but it was great! Very comfortable, very well maintained and very spacious! Dave himself is an awesome guy. 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!
