Excellent driver, vineyards and great company
Linda_H, Nov 2022
The tastings were varied and the staff involved knew their stuff. Our driver Tere was a lovely warm and knowledgable person who had lived locally for 18 yrs. She was terrific company and the other people on the mini bus were great company, we all had a good afternoon and enjoyed the wine and the cheese platter too.

Hi Linda_H. Thank you for your fantastic review. We pride ourselves on our staff and tours. Like Tere, we started this company almost 20 years ago now, and we think we have it down to a fine art. Thank you again for taking the time to write. - John

John was an absolute gem! We had a wonderful afternoon. The selection of vineyards was great, and his local knowledge outstanding. Everything you would expect of a local tour guide. We are already planning our next adventure
Response from Host, Sept 2020
Hi Gareth_F: It is always fantastic to receive great reviews and your review is no exception. I do recall your tour and yes, we all had a great day. The wineries (as you now know) are all very different to give that great cross-section of Hawkes Bay Wines. Again, Thank you - John
Excellent tour
kayt62, Oct 2019
A thoroughly enjoyable and informative afternoon. Ended up just me on the tour on a quiet Sunday afternoon so it felt unique and bespoke. Lots of beautiful vineyards and wine to drink! Would not hesitate to recommend.
Response from Host, Jan 2020
