Lance hosted my wife and I for an amazing day of wine tasting and exploring. The Queenstown Wine Trail were so easy to set the experience up with, tailoring a private tour to suit us and everything ran so smoothly. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and hit the perfect note of informing us about the wine and the different regions, while also giving us space to enjoy the time as a couple. Can’t recommend these guys enough - thanks for an incredible day!

Private Wine Tours are fun to organise as we have so many wonderful wineries to choose from in Bannockburn and Gibbston Valley sub regions. Lance knows them all so well to insure an incredible day. Thanks for joining us

This tour was amazing. Great girls day out! They were able to accommodate a large group at such short notice and provided us with an amazing driver (Lance) who definitely made our trip, great dad jokes and banter. Really appreciated the hospitality and organisation put on by the tour group company. The wines and food was top quality and would definitely recommend to Queenstown travelers!

We enjoyed the visit to the Kinross winery. Sam gave a very professional wine tasting, giving a lot of detail about the wines. During this time, our orders were taken for lunch. The food was wonderful, again the staff very friendly but professional. Angus our driver was full of knowledge & made everyone feel included. Mt Rosa wines was hosted by the owner who made us all welcome & explained the different varieties. Finally Gibbston Valley Wines with the cave tour, which we had been to before.

We thought we were having wine tasting and lunch. Whilst the wine tasting was fun and informative, lunch turned out to be a small plate of cheese and tasty accompaniments, vastly overpriced. There did seem to be some good lunches being served at the winery, just check first.

Hi Dickiedavis, As per our correspondence, unfortunately one of the other wine tour companies picked you up from The Station Building and took you on their tour instead of you joining our tour. We're not sure why they did not check your name properly on their manifest before letting you on the bus and we are sorry you did not get to enjoy our tour. As we discussed, we offer a 3 dish Wine & Food paired lunch on our tour which you would have received had you come out with us, certainly more than the small plate of cheese the other company gave you. We're sorry we didn't get to meet you and if you come to Queenstown again, please contact us and we will take you out on the Wine & Food tour that you should have got to experience. Kind regards, Andrew

The Wine and Food Sampler Tour from Queenstown was great. Our guide was Lance - who apparently owns the company which runs the tour for Viator/TripAdvisor - was extremely knowledgeable about wine and about the Queenstown area. The trip involves being picked up around 11:00 am from hotels in Queenstown and then proceeding by bus or van (depending on how many people are going) to wine tastings at three wineries with a very tasty lunch at the first winery. Lance knows everyone and eagerly shared his knowledge. Highly recommended.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Queenstown area and showed us more than the 3 wineries we visited.The sommiliers at each winery knew their stuff and provided knowledge with an easy and fun twist.
Definately worth doing except next time we would book the lunch as well at Kinross winery which looked very yummy and was well matched to 3 wine samples provided.

My family did a wine tour visiting three wineries which was hosted by Angus. We had the BEST time - it completely exceeded our expectations and was the highlight of our Queenstown trip. We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Kinross, followed by tastings and a cave tour at Gibbston Valley, then finally Mt. Rosa. Angus was such an incredible host, very entertaing and put up with my parent's banter! Such great value.

This tour was the highlight of our weekend. The tour driver, Angus, was excellent. His knowledge, approachability, humour and consideration was top class. We were kept informed with information the whole drive and the places we were taken were perfect. We visited Kinross, Cargo brewery, Mt Rosa and Gibbston valley wineries. There was plenty of time to enjoy each location and plenty of opportunity to taste some excellent wine. I highly recommend this tour!!

The wine tour was fantastic, and Andrew went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. The lunch at Kinross was great, and all the wines were brilliant. Make sure you give these guys a go when you're in Queenstown!
