“Waipara Wine Tour”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

A huge thank you to Jo at Discovery Travel for organising yet another fantastic event for our work place!

This is the second year we've done a wine and food tour throughout Waipara, and compliments have been flying in from everyone who attended – the sun shone, the wine pours were generous, the food was fresh and plentiful and just a great day out!
The staff at the wineries we visited were extremely informative and provided us with a variety of wines to try, and food to match.

Jo went out of her way to accommodate our group and look forward to booking our annual wine and food tour with Discovery Tours again next year!

“Amazing day tour”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

The sites and views are breathtaking on the way to Akaroa. The dolphins swim right up to you and the boat. Food along the shore is also high quality. Lots of shops to browse through. John is a fantastic guide and we were very lucky to have him for the tour. A perfect day trip.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Our experience with Discovery Travel Day Tours was just wonderful from the moment we booked the tour with Jo (who is exceptionally friendly and helpful), right through until we said goodbye to Jim, our fabulous guide. We visited some amazing wineries and stopped for a delicious lunch which was much more than we expected and great value for money. We had only travelled to Christchurch to take the Tranzalpine train trip, unfortunately it was cancelled due to bad weather. However our journey was still worthwhile having gone on the wine tour. Highly recommended.

“Waipara Wine Tour”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

Firstly we would like to thank Jo & John at Discovery Travel Day Tours for doing a fantastic job in helping us to organise our Christmas function this year, they made it way too easy & provided us with anything that we asked for!! We had a great time at all the venues for the wine tasting, they all had a great variety of wines to try & the food was really good. We had a fab bus driver (Miss Pania), she looked after us really well. We would highly recomment this tour, is great for a work function, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves :0)
