Hi Patricia, Thanks for your wonderful review of the Villa Maria Wine Tour and Airport Shuttle. This is becoming such a popular experience and it is so convenient for clients wanting to taste wine and then be delivered for free with their luggage to catch an international flight after the tour. Great to fill in 3 hours in the morning or afternoon. Please feel free to follow my business on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I post interesting pictures and information about things I come across on my tours. I thoroughly enjoyed your company. Stay in touch. Thanks again for choosing NZWINEPRO™ Best regards John McFarlane

Hi Sharon, Thanks for your fantastic review. The Villa Maria Estate Wine Tour / Airport shuttle is really popular because it is the biggest winery in Auckland just 5 mins from Auckland International Airport. So clients are able to enjoy a tour and tasting, possibly stay for lunch and then be delivered wiht thieir luggage to their flight at no extra cost. So i'm really happy that this tour worked for you and your group. I hope you'll like the NZWINEPRO™ Facebook page to stay in touch, or if you follow us on Instagram and Twitter I post interesting photos and articles there about the best wines, cuisine and attractions I come across - Thanks again for sharing your experience on TripAdvisor. All the best - John McFarlane CEO

This was our very first tour for our trip and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. John arrived to our hotel on time and was warm and welcoming from the very start. He guided us through Cornwall Park and to the top of One Tree Hill, which was breathtakingly beautiful.
