      Our guide was excellent, very informative not only about the wines but also the surrounding area. We visited 4 vineyards ( one of which I had already been to when we did our own tour earlier). It would have been good to know in advance which vineyards we were visiting ( there are over 100) so that we could have visited other vineyards on our personal tour earlier. 2 of the vineyards we went to were excellent with describing the wines and an enthusiastic wine demonstrator. The other two vineyards were a bit rushed and not as informative. Each vineyard has a different feel so it is really a personal preference on what one likes. I did enjoy the group we had, very diverse and interesting people from all over the world. However I did not think a small group was going to be 12 people. It ended up being fine but was hoping for more of a personal experience. Overall I would recommend this tour.

      First wine tour I’ve been on and it was fantastic! Gary our guide was extremely knowledgeable and made it a lot of fun. Had tastings at 3 vineyards and a wonderful lunch at another. Would definitely recommend the tour to anyone.

      This was a fun wine tour. Our driver Gary did a fantastic job. He was funny and provided a lot of great information about the region. The wineries were beautiful and very non-pretentious. Found a new love for Pinot Gris today.

      Tour was excellent. We stopped at 3 different vineyards + lunch at a vineyard with a glass of wine, all of which had a wide variety of wines to taste. Driver was incredibly informative and so nice! Group was maxed out at 12 people which was just the right amount. Thanks for a great tour!

      Had a wonderful afternoon travelling around Central Otago. We were quite unimpressed with the first couple of wineries, but lunch was good, and the afternoon wineries were spectacular. We have visited wineries in regions all over the world, and if we went back would probably rent a car and make some appointments to be able to visit more exclusive wineries. The guide was very knowledgeable and overall it was a nice afternoon overview of the region.

      Our Tour Guide Martin was excellent and very informative of the local history, Gold Mining, Wine Makers, Wineries, etc. The quality of wines we were offered for tasting were very very good to the point we purchased more wine than we should have, who's counting. The great factor was we got to taste boutique wines from smaller vineyards who's wines are only available at the cellar door. Very special. All Hosts and Hostesses at the four vineyards we visited were very knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with. The only negative in my mind was the lunch Platter in winter could have had a bowl of Soup added ( something hot )
