We had an excellent afternoon with Dave and Colleen as perfect hosts. We arrived that day on the ferry so Colleen picked us up and took us to the tour Dave was already hosting. Knowing that we had already eaten, whilst the rest of the group were having lunch Dave took us to another winery based on the wines we... More

Myself and my partner booked a full day tour for $90pp, which was recommended by the reception desk at our accommodation. We both drink wine, but knew little about NZ varieties and wanted a day free from driving our motor home. So we're both extremely pleased when we were picked up in a small mini bus by Colleen (who runs... More

Big thanks to Colleen who was our tour guide with highlight wine tours! Super informative, no pressure to buy, had us laughing the whole way. We were lucky enough to get a tour in the off season - Colleen was personal and so hilariously down to earth. Both being young and not-so-experienced wine drinkers she was so accommodating and knowledgeable.... More

We had an amazing afternoon travelling around the different vineyards with Colleen for the first time! Got picked up and dropped off to the Picton ferry which made it very easy for us! Both Colleen and Dave are full of knowledge and facts about wine and vineyards and are very friendly people! They made the trip exciting and looked after... More

Despite booking last minute we were warmly greeted and welcomed by Colleen, who tailored the entire day to our wine tastes and interests. An enjoyable, relaxed and insightful day in the beautiful Malborough wine region made only better by a bubbly and enthused guide.

We had an amazing day with Dave going around with his car to all the wineries we wanted to visit, plus one small winery that he recommended to us based on our wine preference. We sampled and bought some lovely wines and at the end we delighted our inner childhoods with hand-made chocolate from Makana.

We booked this company because it was a little bit cheaper than the other ones offered and the reviews we read were all positive. As soon as we met Coleen, who we already felt we knew from the reviews, her immediate energy, enthusiasm and attitude reassured us that we were in for a great day! We were lucky as it... More
