We booked Highlight through a recommendation and what a choice we made. Dave listened to exactly what we were looking for at the start of the day and then used his obvious wealth of knowledge to give us the perfect day. Fantastic wines and vineyards, great lunch and the Mustang is just the best thing ever! Thank you so much for a great day, a real highlight of our trip to NZ. Cannot recommend highly enough. Alex and Emma.

Booked this trip due to fantastic reviews, and we weren't disappointed. Coleen could not have been more helpful and accomodating for us to attend with our 3 month old. She had massive amounts of knowledge about the area and wine, and picked 4 lovely wineries. We had a delicious lunch at wairau river - amazing food!
Coleen was flexible and tailoured the tour to our group which had only 6 adults on.
Fantastic afternoon, thank you very much!!

Colleen was welcoming from the moment we got on board and took the time to ask about our taste preferences so she could tailor our day. We enjoyed the charming cellar doors we visited. Was great to see more boutiques as we can't always taste that back home and is great to support local businesses. Would recommend :)

Having planned a dream wine tour with my Aunty, it unfortunately didn't work out that way when my Aunty got sick. While I was left as a lone traveller, Colleen went over and above to make me feel comfortable and give me a special day. Her knowledge of the region is impressive and her genuine bubbly personality makes for a fun day. Highly recommend this lovely couple.

We took the afternoon tour with Highlight. Our guide, Colline, was full of knowledge and told us interesting facts and stories about wine making. It really felt like she picked the best places for wine tasting and encoureged us to try new things. Would definitely do this tour again next time in NZ.

we had an amazing time with Colleen on our tour. She was friendly, devoted and she even took care of our baby while were sipping our wine. All the wineries that we went too were amazing and the wines delicious. Don't hesitate it was perfect!

This was our second tour with Colleen & David and they were amazing, yet again. We were over to get married and Colleen & David went out of their way to accommodate our family. Great knowledge of the wines and area too of course. Just loved the whole experience.

My friend Jackie and I had a wonderful time in Blenheim being chauffeured around by the charming and lovely David and Colleen. We were driven in style on the first day in a beautifully maintained Mustang convertible. David selected a variety of wineries to our taste that showed off the beautiful region, and lunch was divine.
Our second day out and about didn’t disappoint either. Colleen shared a wealth of information about the vineyards and knew the best spots to go. We felt very lucky to have such friendly knowledgeable guides, and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone wanting to sample the best of Blenheim. Thanks for a memorable trip.
