  • John was very informative with not only with wines, but general New Zealand info as well, the cellarmasters would go through the wines with us in detail. We went to several wineries and had at least 4 tastings at each, with a mix of white and red wines. It was raining and cold when we did our tour, so just viewed where the penguins would be at that Black Sandy Beach, didn't go walking down to the beach. Will do this next time we do the tour. Excellent tour would recommend highly.

  • A great tour. Even though the weather was not great, our tour guide took us on a tour of the Villa Maria winery first as he correctly anticipated the bad weather would make our trip on the coast not that great. Visits to several wineries, lunch that was lovely and lots of commentary, all in all a great day out.

  • Good one. But recommended to deal directly with the operator.

  • We really enjoyed our day! John did a great job!
