Wine Tour

Leisure Tour Company was easy to deal with and on time picking us up from our hotel. The wine trip had a good variety of wines to try and not too far from Christchurch.

Good tour

I enjoyed this tour very much. There were only 3 of us. Guide was friendly and informative. I did feel a little rushed but I was taken back to my accommodation instead of dropped at pick up point-very much appreciated.
