Most enjoyable half day tour, small group of seven strangers who through the easy manner and commentary of our guide Kerry got on famously at the end of the day. The mix of well known "commercial" wineries and the smaller boutique wineries was great and to sample some of the desert wines was a new experience for my palate, bought... More

We wanted to get the most out of our Hawkes Bay wine time (2 days) so we took advantage of both the regular 1/2 day group tour and then the 1/2 day private boutique winery tour. The first day was a nice intro to the wine region with 4 wineries (big and small) and the trip up to Te Mata... More

A nice afternoon out with a small group. Our guide was good and the cheese delicious. I personally didn't like many of the wines but that wasn't the tour company's fault. The trip to the lookout at the end of the day was a nice touch.

Had a wonderful half day visiting four beautiful wineries in the area with a great group. Hamish was generous with his extensive knowledge of the area and kept the group moving at a natural pace. Highly recommended.

We did a full day wine tour and enjoyed the fact that this is not a huge tour bus. We enjoyed 5 wineries and a cheese platter provided by Prinsy's Tours at one of the wineries which was a nice surprise. We enjoyed the visit to Te Mata Peak incredible view on the day we were there.

Host Hamish and staff gave us an excellent commentary of the region while displaying extremely friendly and caring attitude. The old church and cemetery were very interesting as was the apple orchard and discussion about apple growing. Delicious and plentiful morning tea was provided at the family home in their beautiful garden. Followed by a winery tour with wine tasting.... More

My wife and I used Prinsy's Tours while in Hawkes Bay for our honeymoon. We started at Moana Park, then lunch at Church Road, followed by Trinity Hill, Ngatarawa, Te Mata Peak and Craggy Range. Ian was an excellent guide. We couldn't have asked for a more spectacular day of wine tasting. Thank You!
