I must say we had the best time on this Wine tour, the Tour Guide was amazing and his knowledge of the area was fantastic, the places he took us too were just as amazing I would recommend this tour for groups, work functions or family groups, ours was a work function and he made it the most amazing trip for us, Well done and thank you so much we had the most amazing time. If I have the chance I would do it again!!
Lovely day! Great company and great guide! Would highly recommend
Excellent wine tour with Ken, had a really great time. Would absolutely recommend it to anyone wanting a wine tour. Cheers
The ladies certainly enjoyed your lovely tour from the moment we were picked up in Kerikeri. You were very welcoming and informative about the area and the vineyards we were visiting. As a group we would certainly be interested in visiting some other vineyards in the regionand were happy with the organization from yourselves and the care of your customers. The tour offered good value and we certainly enjoyed our afternoon.

Fabulous tour! The guide Derek was amazing, so knowledgeable about the area and with a grand sense of humour. We loved every minute.
We couldn’t have asked for more from this tour. Picked up on time. Guide was knowledgeable and attentive to us. Excellent value for money. Every vineyard was friendly and the wine and food was amazing. So glad we booked this trip. Good luck to Mike who was training. and to Ken our guide .
