We cannot thank Hamish and Kerry enough.

Hamish made the booking process so easy for a group that was on the move and unsure of plans, he was very accommodating.

Kerry was the perfect host, he had wonderful insights about the region, had so much patience dealing with a slow moving and rowdy group (this was our celebration post-marathon) and was very personable. We had a huge variety of wines and each winery was a bit different adding to the whole experience.

No doubt would recommend these guys to anyone and everyone!

Thanks again :-)

Full day wine tasting tour.
Picked up by Ian From Prinsys Tours
Great tour mostly small boutique quality wineries that sell from cellar door only. Lunch was at Church Road winery which was the largest one we went to. Church Road winery is very well known for a consistently good standard of both red and white wines MacDonald series in particular
Lunch at your own expense
We chose a delicious harvest platter with cold meats cheese pickles specialty breads
This is platter is for two people and compliments your chosen wine.
We then proceeded tasting at another 3 wineries then a trip up to Te Mata Peak to take in the most amazing views looking down on the well known Craggy Range Winery.
An afternoon snack was a cheese board set up at one of our afternoon tasting. This was complimentary of Prinsys Tours. A very nice touch I thought.
So then it was 5.00pm and we were taken back to our accommodation by Ian from Prinsys wine tours having enjoyed an informative and knowledgeable day about Wine making and the history of Havelock North Hasting and Napier
Would recommend this to be a 5 star tour

We've just had the most wonderful day with Hamish, he's clearly excellent at building a rapport to help you feel comfortable, and each vineyard was ready for us at arrival, and really just well varied selection of places to go, you'll be amazed how happily the time flies.
He really knows the people and the area. He's an excellent champion for the best of the region and can tell you about thing you hadn't even got to wondering about.
The vehicle was clean and tidy, and plenty of storage in the back for those incidentals you pick up along the way on this kinda trip.
My only complaint was that I'd not done this sooner.
Thank you again, C and K :)

Was greeted by Ian our tour guide for the day bang on 12.00pm as arranged. After three pick-ups (we were a total of 10 on our tour) we headed off the the various wineries (4). None of the big names, but smaller and in some cases family run businesses, which made for a real nice personal feel when it came to tasting. To see the passion these people have really made for an amazing day. Also helped by the nice people accompanying us on the tour. Ian was fantastic, and his knowledge of wine and the region (as well as the country) was second to none. His attention to detail and his commitment to making sure everyone had a great day was awesome. Thanks to him, and those on our tour for making it such a great day

We booked a half day tour with Prinsy’s based on online reviews and were not disappointed! Ian was a great host and so knowledgeable about the area and wines. We were picked up promptly at our apartment and spent the most glorious day being whisked around four wineries. We were lucky with the beautiful weather and a wonderful small group of people to share the afternoon with. Can’t wait for our next trip to Hawkes Bay as I’m sure we’ll tag on another tour! Highly recommend this to anyone sitting on the fence.

We had the best time with Kerry as our tour guide. Planning the trip was easy online and communication with Hamish and Di was great. Hamish rang me the day before the trip to confirm everything. We visited 4 Wineries, all quite different and tasted some great wines. Our favourite was visiting the Mission. Not only was the wine excellent but we learnt a lot about the history of the Mission.

Highly recommend this tour! Our tour guide Hamish was knowledgeable and friendly and chose 4 fantastic wineries for us to visit including one that was exclusive to Prinsy's. The wineries were all differing sizes and gave a great variation of wines to taste. The drive up The Mata Peak was a really nice addition to the tour. Overall a fantastic day out.

I can’t say enough good things about our Tour. Ian picked us up from our Accomodation and due to being in Level 2, we were in a mini van just for us and our 2 friends. Ian was really knowledgable about the region and the coney wards and a great guy! We visited 4 vineyards and had lots of tastings. We were able to go to a fantastic small vineyard, which no other tours can go to. This was so great and so different to anything we had done on a wine tour before. They were really responsible with respecting the level
2 rules and made us feel really safe for our tour.
I would definitely recommend this company if you are looking to do a tour in Napier/Hastings!

My wife and I had the pleasure to follow our guide Ian on a half day wine tasting tour around Napier. He was super friendly and very knowledgeable about wines. The four stops were all great and we got to taste a lot of real good wines. They don't just stop at the usual places but also take you to some hidden gems like Gimblett Gravels where we were welcomed by one of the owners under a gazebo in front of their house. Very special. Thank you again for a great time and best of luck for the future.
