She was a load of fun that made the day even more enjoyable. We stopped at 6 wineries all of which where welcoming and interesting to listen to about their wines.... More

Went with 2 friends on the full day tour. We were collected from and dropped back to our hotel. Our guide, Catriona, was very knowledgeable and great fun. We were lucky enough to have the tour to ourselves so she created a tailor made tour to suit our tastes. We visited 6 wineries, including an organic vineyard and champagne winery,... More

Overall, this tour was amazing. We found our local driver very easily once we got off the port shuttles and because it was a smaller group (7 of us), but missing one couple made it that much easier to move from each winery. My wife and I both really wanted to do this tour b/c of our interest in wines... More

Not knowing much about wine, except that I like to drink it, I didn't know what to expect. Kevin and Tricia were the nicest people, and they had many good stories and incredible knowledge to go with the wines! I had a wonderful day and cannot recommend this tour enough.

Same day booking - no problem! Katrina picked us up from our accommodation and with only 5 of us on tour we had a delightful day. We visited 5 wineries - all very different and interesting. Katrina was a great host sharing her knowledge and sense of humour in equally generous quantities. The wineries were incredibly generous with the tastings... More

Today's full day tour was even better than I could have imagined. Kevin picked me up bright and early to drop me to the boat trip.

We were cruising around New Zealand on the Holland America ship Noordam. Previously we had always booked excursions through the ship and this was to be our first try at going it alone. We were a little apprehensive but we certainly didn't need to be. After transferring by shuttle from the port of Picton to the i-site tourist information centre... More
