Our driver and guide Owen was very knowledgeable and made the whole day a fun experience. We visited a number of wineries and a country / gift store. Our lunch at Kahurangi Estate was very good with a choice of either another wine tasting or a drink. Our visit to Mapua and

Haha nga mihi nui :-) Not sure about the last sentence but it was lovely to have you all from the winterless North :-) Hope your enjoyed the pics I took and posted on our website. Look after yourselves up there. There are worse places to be in isolation than the north. Don't eat too many crayfish or flounder :-) Arohanui te whanau o Te Aupouri Be safe. Owen & Sue

Owen gave us an excellent experience. He was knowledgeable about the area as well as the wineries. The wineries were varied and had individual characteristics that made each unique. We also enjoyed visiting non - wineries which gave greater scope. Thanks for a great tour.

Kapai Pam & John. Thank you for taking the time to send in the lovely review. Yes I try to find out a little about peoples tatses and interests and then if I can add a few other little stops along the way that can make the day a little more personal. Yes the wineries here are all family owned. This is a feature of Nelson which makes the visits a little more relaxed and adds that personal touch to each visit so glad you enjoyed that. Thanks again and we trust the rest of your stay in Aotearoa / NZ went well and you got home safe and sound to the UK :-) Arohanui Owen

It was a lovely day with you all. (even the Aussie was nice :-) ) haha. It was a pleasure to help you out that evening with your dinner date. No problem at all. Hope you all got home safe and sound and the rest of your stay in Aotearoa went seamlessly and you left with fond memories. Glad I played my part in that. Look after yourselves. Nga mihi nui Arohanui Owen
