We fully recommend Dave for his knowledge of the area, wines, his ability to choose vineyards to suit us both & his great people skills (we had lots of laughs). Heading out on the... More

They ask prior to the tour and the morning of the tour what are our interests and they molded the tour to our favourite wines/interests. 2) Car - their... More

Never fear, Dave and Colleen were quick to the rescue, and were very accomodating of our prearranged lunch at Wairau River. Dave happily picked us for... More

We (two couples) took the full day tour with Colleen as our guide. She picked us up promptly and we had a lovely day. We didn't feel rushed or pressured at any point. We visited a nice variety of wineries. Colleen was extremely knowledgeable as were the tasting room staffs. It was indeed the highlight of our trip on South... More

We did the afternoon tour because of our own travel plans. Given the chance, we would definitely do one of the longer tours. David was a great guide and we visited four cellar doors where we sampled a good number and variety in each (as well as buying a number along the way). From the moment we were picked up,... More

Colleen picked us up bang on time from our accommodation and after a short chat about our tastes, off we went to our first winery. On the way we got to see the harvesters in action. This was typical of the day, nothing was too much trouble! A great day which was individually catered to our tastes. I would certainly... More
