John kindly took us on a wine tour and was very inclusive as I wanted to take my 14-year-old disabled daughter with me. He helped me with the wheelchair and was amazing with engaging with my daughter as well as making the tour for me a very special event. His knowledge of wine and the local areas is outstanding. He even took us to the Gannet colony hoping that my daughter would enjoy it too and he smashed it! It is always very hard being able to go places with a disabled child and he made me feel completely relaxed. Thanks John for an epic tour!

Hi Kirsty, I'm so pleased you enjoyed the Vineyards Honey & Black sand beach Tour with Scarlett. We try our best to accommodate every client no matter their needs or requirements where possible. It was a pleasure to share the day with you both and I'm really happy that the Gannets at Muriwai made such an impression. All the best John McFarlane

John picked us up from right outside out cruise ship right on time. It was a nice little group as there was only us and two other people (and NO children - which was nice to have that sort of break). He was very knowledgeable and was happy to answer our questions regardless of the topic (mostly nothing to do with wine). Both Wineries were great and the scenery and Gannet colony breath taking. John even stopped for us at a fruit shop so my husband could buy a kiwi fruit to eat in New Zealand being that he doesn't like wine (he came for the scenery and the no kids - 4 of us in a little cabin for nearly two weeks we needed that break). Highly recommend this tour.

Hi Julia and Paul, It was a pleasure to take you both on the Afternoon Muriwai Scenic Wine Tour. I'm pleased the tour met with you approval and that you could enjoy the wine country and coastal areas outside the city. Thank also for posting some photos too , those areas are so spectacular it's hard not to want to take a lot of pictures especially of the Tasman Sea and Gannet Colony. Please feel free to follow my business on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I post interesting pictures and information about things I come across on my tours. I thoroughly enjoyed your company. Stay in touch. Thanks again for choosing NZWINEPRO™ Best regards - John McFarlane

Deciding to take the Muriwai Scenic Wine Tour with John, for my daughter’s hen party, was a stroke of genius on her younger sister’s part. What a day we had! It was the best and John was the perfect host. Friendly and engaging giving us room to enjoy ourselves but also quietly corralling us from one venue to the next. There was a lot of singing, laughter and good times had by all. A wonderful curtain raiser to what proved to be an equally wonderful wedding. Thanks John.

A couple of friends and I decided to come to New Zealand on a whim while we were visiting Sydney, Australia. After visiting Hobbinton, we wanted to attend a wine tour. Last minute, we called about 5 different touring companies and everything was booked. The last company we called we reached John and he answered! He managed to do a custom three-hour tour which allowed us to visit some great wineries and see the amazing black sand beaches. John is very knowledgeable and made my friends and me feel at home.

Thank you John for an amazing afternoon. John's knowledge and expertise of wine and the area was outstanding and his friendly nature make for an enjoyable tour. We went to 2 wineries and the spectacular coastline where the gannet birds nest with a nice small group in a very comfortable mini van. John's knowledge of the area was most helpful with the narrow, windy roads! Anyone thinking of doing a wine tour in NZ (and it is a must) should look up John at NZ WinePro tours. Garry & Tanya S

Great way to spend an afternoon in Auckland. We thoroughly enjoyed the day out with John on his tour. He was very helpful as our booking was a bit last minute so he fitted us in. Very knowledgeable on all things New Zealand especially the wine. Would definitely recommend this tour if you want to spend an enjoyable few hours.

Booking this tour with John made our afternoon most memorable. A great host with so much knowledge and a very pleasant personality. We were welcomed at two wineries and the grommets were very interesting. I read all reviews before booking this tour and was not disappointed. John really gave us a personal experience in Auckland that we will not forget.

Hi Crystal, Thanks for your great review. I'm really pleased I could get you out of th city to enjoy some Great wine and scenery. This particular tour which has a morning and afternoon option is perfect for people with limited time that don't want the additional costs of lunch. Great if you have an afternoon or evening flight.
