Perfect Post-Cruise Day
tmartinalbert, Feb 2020
We were picked up at the cruise ship dock, and whisked out of town for a 6 hour vineyard tour. Driver/guide Sanjay Shah was excellent, kept us on time to each stop and was flexible about our preferences. The company (just one other couple) was fun and lunch for everyone at the beautiful Brick Bay Winery was perfection. Sanjay dropped us at the airport for our late flight back and I felt I was saying goodbye to a friend. Highly recommend.
Journée mémorable avec 2 supers guides
Maria_C, Jul 2019
Nous avons très apprécié notre journée dans les différents tours proposés : la fromagerie, le miel, la chocolaterie, la poterie, le musée avec l'arbre gigantesque de 800 ans appelé le Kauri, les 3 endroits de dégustation de vins et sans oublier le repas qui était super bon dans un endroit magnifique. Merci à Rag et Ian pour ce tour qu'on n'oubliera jamais et pour votre gentillesse. Pierre et Maria
