今回は「コースト・ツー・コーストツアー」に参加しました。過去、色々なワイナリーツアーに参加したことがありますが、その中でも一番満足できたツアーです。ガイドのジョンさんは、ワインに詳しいのはもちろんのこと、時々日本語を混ぜてくださったりする、とても気さくで親切な方でした。次回オークランドを訪れる際は、またツアーに参加させてくださいね! I joined "Coast-to-Coast Tour". I've joined various winery tours in many places so far, but this was the most satisfying tour among them. John was not only familiar with wine, but also he was very friendly and kind. When I visit Auckland next time,...More

Arrived in Auckland in the morning and did the afternoon West Coast tour. Enjoyed the opportunity to see the scenery, three wineries, and John’s commentary and conversation. Highly recommend.

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!!
