John was a knowledgeable tour guide! Each stop included an in-depth knowledge about each place! By far the best wine tour that I have been on, ever! Would definitely recommend to anyone.

I am also pretty sure that the legal age for drinking in NZ is 18. This was a great tour, the small vineyards were just beautiful!!
