My wife and I were in Queenstown for the week and we wanted to call in to some of the local wineries that supply our grocery store. As we wanted to do the wine tasting we couldn't drive so googled up the Wine Hopper Bus. The pickup was easy to find, the tour started on time and the driver, Angus made sure were all informed about how the day would plan out. Basically it was we wanted which was awesome as we could choose what wineries to visit. (4)

Our group consisted of four young couples plus ourselves. Even with the age gap we all got on and had plenty of laughs and even managed to discuss the wine tastings and life in general. Angus was always there for us but never overbearing or pressuring us to hurry along.

We had a great day starting at Amisfield then Kinross, Peregrine and Gibbston Valley where it all started. The passion from the winery staff helped make this such a memorable day.

Special thanks to the Team at Wine Hopper bus and Angus, really appreciated the extra effort mate.

We would certainly recommend this tour if you are in Queenstown and want a hassle free day visiting the local wineries.

Heather made the whole booking experience incredibly simple, she was brilliant offering advice on (eg) order of wineries, lunch bookings etc. Our Driver, Simon, picked us up from our accommodation and is one of the best communicators I've met. He was friendly, available, and reliable. Thanks Wine Hopper Bus, cheers!! Margot

We enjoyed a fantastic trip around several wineries. The host Andrew was extremely friendly and personable, and designed the route based on the passengers onboard (and splitting us up so we don’t overwhelm the tasting rooms). I was delighted by the flexibility of the tour (could just text him if we wanted to stay at one place longer).
It was such a relaxed day, and we laughed every time we saw passengers on other tours run to their buses which would likely leave them behind.
Thanks to Andrew for a great Saturday!

Myself and five friends had a wonderful day on the Wine Hopper Bus visiting wineries in the Gibbston Valley wine region. Our driver and guide Andrew was excellent, he was very friendly and accommodating and bent over backwards to made sure our day ran without a hiccup. I can highly recommend the Wine Hopper Bus for anyone looking for a fun, relaxed day out. :)

Such a great day! The weather was stunning, the other wine tasters were fun to hang out with, and the wine was spectacular! Our wonderful driver, Lance, gave us the ins and outs of the various wineries and had an excellent rapport with the winemakers. He made recommendations and clearly knew what he was talking about! The tour was self paced and we just texted him when we were ready to move on. It was a relaxed day, and the whole vibe was casual and chilled out and all about us getting to know the region. Lance also dropped us at our spa booking at Onsen after which was fantastic as it meant we could hang out at the vineyards longer. Love the support and “we’re all in this together” vibe the people of Queenstown have during this tough time for the town. Thanks for an epic afternoon Lance!

My 22 year old daughter and I joined my brother and his wife and their two younger children (11 and 9) for the wine hopper bus in Queenstown.
Our driver and guide Andrew provided excellent service and was friendly and knowledgeable.
We had such a fun afternoon!
You pay extra for the tastings once you get to the wineries, which we expected and it was made clear from the booking stage.
We would all do this again and highly recommend it!

This was my second time using the Queenstown Wine Hopper Bus and I would highly recommend them. Our driver was professional, entertaining and great to deal with. It is such a breeze and fantastic service knowing that you will be well looked after while enjoying wine and endless cheese boards through out Gibbston Valley. Until next time!

With so many options we weren’t entirely sure what wine tour service to go with.
The Wine Hopper bus was recommended by the front desk staff at our accomodation.

This was the perfect tour for us.

Andrew was a wonderful host, being a combination of informative yet relaxed, professional yet easygoing. He knows his stuff but doesn’t force information on you.

We we able to pick and choose where we went, what we did and how long we stayed at each place and Andrew would just pop back and forth to accomodate all the parties in the very comfy and spacious van. Bear in mind this is 2020 so nothing was overly busy so we had the luxury of not needing to book for lunch anywhere.

We couldn’t recommend Andrew and The Wine Hopper bus highly enough

Lance was a fantastic guide and driver for our afternoon vineyard tour. We cannot recommend this service enough. They were great to deal with from the first phone call to book right through to dropping us back to our hotel after several vineyard tastings and a yummy lunch. We will definitely be back to Queenstown and visit again with the Winehopper team. Thank you!

Also, before we booked with Winehopper, we were advised by a street travel agent that Winehopper weren’t operational since COViD and only tour operational was one they were selling but at a very expensive price. We called Winehopper as we didn’t like this young English travel agents attitude and he was feeding us porkies. Winehopper are operational and were great.

We did this wine tour as part of our Valentines Getaway to Queenstown. Ian the Driver and host was so good and flexible in helping everyone on the tour achieving what they wanted whether it was staying long at certain wineries and going back to pick them up later.
It was a very enjoyable relaxing day.
Thank you Ian - you're a great guy and host
