Accommodating for last minute tour booking. Four nice tastings and even a lovely pottery studio! Noel was so knowledgeable and adaptive. Don't know what other tours are like but this one was well worth the price!!

Noel took great care of us and tailored our tour to our interest. The personalized touches he added like a fresh lunch from his garden in a perfect location at a winery made the day so special. After spending the day with Noel, we felt well informed about all aspects of the region including plant life and history. We think... More

just want to say 'thanks' to Noel for a fantastic afternoon. booked the trip at the last minute whilst in a windy Nelson. Brilliant informative trip, and learnt so much about the different wines. Noel has a vast knowledge of wines and tasting, and conveys this in such an interesting and informative way.

Thankyou for this marvellous review but as always it is the personalities of the visitors that make a good day brilliant. I never lose the buzz of meeting new people each day and introducing them to the local Nelson delights so your time spent with me was deeply appreciated. More

Our Nelson-in-a- Day tour was tailored to our interests and was most interesting and great fun. History- both natural and human, sights and views, morning tea and a delicious lunch in the bush was included. We will never forget the Kiwi.

We only had one day in Nelson, and we were lucky enough that Noel was available to show us around. We told him what our interests were, and Noel took us to just the right places (key art galleries and jewelers), and he even helped to plan our itinerary for our drive to Kaikoura the next day. Noel was very... More

There were so many great options to chose from on the website, I wasn't exactly sure which one to pick but Noel assured us we picked the best, 'Wild Northwest'. We did a little bit of everything, lots of sightseeing, vineyards, farms, a fantastic lunch at the beach in Collingwood. Noel was extremely knowledgeable about all of the areas, including... More
