Donna_K, Mar 2023
We had such a great time on this tour! The stops were perfect! We absolutely loved the chocolate, wishing we had purchased more. The cheese was delicious and the winery was the perfect end to our tour, with incredible food, wine and views. We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone heading to NZ!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks Donna! It's always lovely to get such great feedback so thanks a lot. I'm delighted you had such a memorable experience.
Our driver picked us up from our accomodation and stoped up back- thank you Kelvie, you were amazing with your knowledge of the area. Loved the Cheese tasting at Featherston in the amazing pub.

Delightful Day
Jo_V, Jan 2023
What a delightful day! I believe our tour guide was Phil. He is a native of the area and filled our day with interesting history and facts about the region. All three stops were so enjoyable. The cheese factory/store had delicious cheeses as well as a very nice presentation. The chocolate factory/store was quaint and made more fun with a chocolate-tasting quiz, not to mention the high quality and flavor of the chocolates. The final stop at Muirlea Rise topped the day off with a wine-tasting of "reds, reds, and more reds." I highly recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thanks for the detailed review Jo, much appreciated! It was my pleasure having you on tour and delighted to hear you enjoyed the day!

Excellent half day tour. Phil was very knowledgeable, interesting and accommodating. When we booked he emailed to check where we wanted to be picked up from, so even though our hotel wasn't on the list of pickup places, Phil offered to pick us up from our hotel. There were only 7 people on our tour, which meant everyone had plenty of opportunities to ask questions and chat to Phil. Phil was completely unphased by having 2 vision impaired people on his tour. I have some sight and my partner has none. Phil just got on with it with no fuss, but reassured us he'd help whenever we needed it, which he did. The cheese, wine and chocolate tastings were excellent and fun. I'd highly recommend any tour Phil is leading.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks for the comprehensive feedback, Jill. It was a pleasure having you both on board and I'm delighted to hear the tour was so enjoyable for you.
A tour and much more
Stephen_W, Dec 2022
Our guide brought life and color to our tour like no other guide I’ve experienced has. Great storyteller and I would have hired him In a heartbeat in my prior life as playwright and play director.
Response from Host, Dec 2022

Cheese tasting, chocolate tasting, wine & gin tasting with a friendly, knowledgeable Tour Guide...what's not to like? Enjoyed learning snippets of history along the way. All 'n' all a great little tour! Would've like to have had more time to look around Greytown & Martinborough Square.
