My friend and I had an amazing time. The tour was just the two of us so we lucked out that no one else happened to book. John took a lot of time explaining the different scenery, history of NZ, and wines along the way. The view of the black sand beaches and the birds was incredible. I definitely recommend... More

My friends and I booked a last minute wine tour with John. We booked it because he was the number one rated tour in our area, and he lived up to that rating. John picked us up from the Airbnb we were staying at, gave us a tour of Auckland and brought us to the villa to taste some wine.... More

I booked directly through NZWINEPRO for a wine tour while I was on vacation and I was not disappointed in this tour and tour company. The John picked us up from our hotel at the time that was specified and we explored 3 wineries in the Auckland area. John proved to be a knowledgeable guide and more than willing to... More

Not sure where to start but we have been on wine tours in several countries across the world and John blows them all away. He not only takes good care of his clients he also makes sure your wine experience is the best. He knows his wine, is customer service oriented and has great relationships with the best wineries. Can't... More

I'm just writing to add my praise to help keep John at the #1 spot for Food and Drink in Auckland! My friend and I took a two-week trip to New Zealand in September 2014 (over a year ago), and our time spent with John was memorable enough that we wanted to check on him a year later. John's wine...

There was just my husband and I and one other lovely lady from Europe on this day. We piled in John's car and it felt more like a friend taking one around the sights than an official tour. We had foggy weather in the morning but that didn't dampen the lively conversation and we enjoyed John's description of beautiful sights... More

My husband and I have done wine tours all over the world and John is one of the best! In addition to introducing us to some great wineries, John also showed us some beautiful venues along the way. He's a local and full of interesting information about every inch of New Zealand. I highly recommend everyone to book with this... More

Realized we hadn't done another review yet for our third tour with John. On this occasion he took us to the Matakana region, which was beautiful. John was his usual perfect self, with his great attitude, friendly nature & hordes of wisdom about wine & many other subjects as well. It's so great he uses a smaller vehicle for his... More

Me and my wife arrived to NZ for business and decided to take a few days off afterwards since it was our first trip to NZ. After looking for possible activities, a couple of local friends recommended to explore NZ wine. A quick search at the tripadvisor suggested NZwinepro as one of the best wine experiences, so we decided to... More

Hi Oleg, It was such a pleasure to spend not one but two days with you and your beautiful wife. It isn't often I get clients from Israel, so it was great to be able to showcase the best of 2 different regions on the Vineyards Honey & Black Sand Beach Tour, and then the Matakana Coastal Getaway Tour the...
