What a great day visiting three wineries with a wine expert. Small group which made the day even better. Tasting the grapes off the vines was all a great experience and the inside knowledge from the person who planted the grapes just added to the experience.. Late afternoon wine and nibbles at an exclusive lookout with magnificent views just topped off an excellent day. Thanks again for a brillant day and would highly recommend it to all wine lovers. Napier is a lovely place to visit and wish we had more time as we were on a cruise ship and only had a day their. Much better value than the ship tours as well.

We organized this shore excursion from Australia with Ross.. What a magical day. From the moment we stepped into the decorated mini van ,Ross was very obliging and told us the day was ours .We were informed about the beautiful art deco buildings in Beautiful Napier, visited the Tobacco Company.We sampled wines from beautifully landscaped wineries,.Listened to local band music while tasting beers and cider and sampled some of the fresh fruit and homemade ice-cream.
The weather was perfect and the scenery stunning.The drive through the countryside and up the mountain to Ross's platform in the sky was wonderful.Here we dined on fresh NZ cheese and biscuits while sipping NZ wine all supplied by Ross.The view across the valleys and Napier was stunning.
On the way back to the ship Ross drove us through some of the beautiful housing estates. as some of our group are dog lovers friendly Ross organized for us to meet his 2 dogs in the park. They were even dressed for the occasion. Our day extended well beyond the advertised hours for the excursion but we arrived back at our cruise ship in plenty of time. Thanks Ross for such a memorable, friendly and informative day. We would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.. Members of Inner Wheel Club of Rockhampton Sunset

We booked this tour with Ross before we left Australia and it was really easy. He did not require credit card details or payment before hand, not like some other tour operators. We were travelling on a cruise and arrived at the information centre, which is the meeting place, by the free shuttle bus from the port. He was very informative and friendly. There were 7 of us on the tour in a small mini van with ample room. We went to 3 fantastic wineries, a fabulous lookout with cheese and wine supplied, the Art Deco tobacco building, a church and finally Bluff lookout for a great view. Ross has lived and worked in the area for a long time. His knowledge made it a very informative and pleasurable afternoon. He dropped us back to catch the shuttle in plenty of time to reach the ship.

We had a fantastic day with Ross. He was a great host. Took us to some great vineyards for wine tasting and all the key sights in the area. There wasn't a question he couldn't answer. We thoroughly recommend his half day winery tour.
