John was our guide for a full day wine tour and it was a fantastic experience! We were a group of four from Colorado and had a great time. The wineries we visited were all quite different and interesting. We loved the lunch and wine at Mission Winery. Moana Park and Alpha Domus were our two other favorites. Great wines... More

We booked on line, $398 for 2 persons, The Gold Reserve Full Day Wine Tour about a week before coming out to Napier. The extra details box (on line) was to give our hotel location and ask to be picked up.

This really was a thoroughly good day out and something I would happily do again. My wife and I booked up to the all-day gold reserve wine tour, which was expensive but ultimately felt worthwhile.

This was booked by our travel agent in the UK. Big mistake. The 3-4 wineries turnd out to be 3. The gourmet platter were cheeses from a cold box. For the price we expected a lot more. The tastings themselves were average at best and at two places we were given so little wine in each glass it was hard... More

We organized a day tour of Hawkes Bay wineries and were picked up in the morning by Craig who was really knowledgable, good fun, and informative. We were chauffeured around in a BMW 7 series which was super comfortable, modern & clean and a great way to visit the wineries and sights. Highly recommend. Great tips as well for places... More

Even with the youngest visitor (our infant was 3 months), the trip with Graig was perfect. Each people in the car and in the wineries were so nice, funny and interesting. Graig, we're waiting for you in New-Caledonia ;)
