We booked through Viator as a shore excursion rather than through the cruise ship. The company was Canterbury Leisure Tours. From the start our guide was excellent and knowledgeable about the region, culture and sites. We visited No. 1 Family Estate, Giesen, Omaka Springs and the Makana Chocolate factory. My favorite was Omaka Springs - the proprietor was friendly and the tasting room was unassuming as opposed to the larger wineries. Lastly, 1 person in our group had a terrible cough and our guide stopped at a pharmacy for cold relief medicine we also had another person in our group leave their credit card where we had lunch. Our guide returned to retrieve the card. It was a long day but our guide displayed the values and culture of the Island.

This was a great tour from the cruise ship. We stopped at four wineries and all were good. Only problem was it was mostly white wines.

Booked this tour the day before as unexpectedly found I was going to have a whole day in the area. It was a really memorable day with Katrina the tour guide who was extremely freindly and knowledgable and totally catered the day around my wishes. Got to sample some beautiful wines by starting at Villa Maria with Stephen who was so very knowledgable about his subject and the vineyard. Then went to a number of other vineyards, had a lovely lunch at Giesons, and finished off at Makana chocolates. All in all a really great day
