Wayne was a great guide throughout the winery tour. He took us around the island not only to wineries but also to various spots to show us the history and geography of the island. We absolutely loved it. We tasted a total of 21 wines at 4 wineries. All were excellent. We worked with Jean when we booked the tour.... More

Excellent tour. Graham did an excellent job explaining to us about the island and the three wineries we visited gave us a good overview of North Island wines

Took the tour today with Graham driving the van. Visited three really good wineries and saw a lot of the island scenery. Well structured and a fun, informative day out. Weather wasn't the best but it didn't affect the day. Would recommend.

We couldn't' have asked for a better winery tour. Graham was a fantastic guide - friendly, funny, organised and went above and beyond to make sure we were all enjoying ourselves. He also took us on scenic drives around the island and dropped me and my partner at another winery which was out of the way on his return to... More

Had a fantastic time on the tour. Not only did we taste great wine at the top wineries, Wayne our guide taught us a lot about island history and local spots around the island. The tour was as fun as the wine tasting! Our group was fun and inviting and it was a blast!
