From start to finish, this experience was perfect. Tom picked us up for our day of preplanned activities on a private tour which took us to the best of Wellington's foodie and scenic highlights (and the best local beers). A drive around the bays showed us Wellington's outer suburbs and the hidden Massey Memorial on the Miramar Peninsula. We learnt the reason behind the 'Wellywood' sign and even got to visit Gollum! My favourite parts were the visit to Denzien Gin Distillery and lunch at Shepherd, whereas Sean most enjoyed a pumpkin spiced ale at Double Vision Brewing. I sense a theme here... Our private Wellington foodie and scenic tour with Kaewa Tours was exceptional and we will definitely be back to try the Martinborough/Kāpiti tours too. Fantastic food, brews and great company. Thanks again Tom, you sure can't beat Welly on a good day!

A perfect day out ! We booked the tour as a Christmas Present for our family of adults to enjoy. Tom is a great host for a day - driving us expertly for the day, providing humour and knowledge of the area and our stops. We enjoyed Chocolates at Kapiti Chocolate Factory / Limoncello tastings. An exceptional experience and wonderful hosts with olive oil tastings and lunch among the olive trees at Totora Tunnel Olives. New Ciders to try (dry decilous ) at Elemental Cider rounded off with the famous Tuatara Brewing and tasting paddles - will return and stay longer. Thanks Tom, Karen & Geoff

We were more than fortunate to have chosen to do a Private Martinborough Foodie & Wine Delights Tour with Kaewa Tours and Tour Guide & Owner Tom Collier at the wheel. A pick up from our Wellington Hotel and a scenic and informative trip over the Rimatakas to Martinborough was the start of a full day of wine, food, area information and laughter. We sampled cheese, chocolates, wine and Olive Oil with Helen at Olivo Olive Estate a highlight. Another highlight was a lunch at Poppies and a box of wine sent home to enjoy on our return. We were also given a goodie bag to return to our hotel with that was an extra special touch. I suggest if you haven’t been and you get the chance - book with Tom & Kaewa Tours - It was superb!!!

Hi Kylie, Thank you so very much for your very kind words. It was my absolute pleasure to host you and Jason for your Foodie day out to the South Wairarapa and of course belatedly celebrate your wedding anniversary! I thoroughly enjoyed your company and it certainly was a fun day out from my perspective. Have a lovely Christmas and our very best wishes for 2022. Cheers Tom and Jill.

We booked a wine tour with Tom, who picked us up from our hotel in central Wellington. From booking the tour Tom was great at communicating. Tom chose four amazing family run vineyards which offered an amazing selection of wines. We were able to meet the owners and wine makers at all of the vineyards which made for a much more personal tour. Would highly recommend and book again!

You don’t need to think twice when booking the wine tour with Tom. He was an absolute delight and provided excellent guest services before, throughout and after the trip. The vineyards Tom chose to take us to were smaller family run vineyards where we got to personally meet the owner and wine makers. It was very warming to see how passionate they are about their craft. We were able to sit with Tom over lunch at Poppies and was a great opportunity to exchange great conversations. Would highly reccomend, and would definitely book again. Also, Jill makes amazing orange muffins! - Ling and Steven
