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!

We took the 1/2 day tour. Our guide Ian provided great information about the Hawkes Bay area and the wineries we visited and happy to answer our questions. The trip to Te Mata Peak provided a good overview of the overall area.

We travelled with Prinsy Tours as a family group and had a great day out with Ian and Hamish. We visited 4 vineyards altogether and all were totally different. We really enjoyed the relaxed, easy approach to the whole tour and how the afternoon unfolded. The weather wasn't the best to us so we missed out on seeing Te Mata... More

I would recommend this company for their wine tours. Our driver Ian, was very knowledgable of the area and it's history and knew a lot about the vineyards and their wine. We visited 5 wineries, had lunch (an amazing platter) at Church Rd and even had cheese and crackers up the top of Te Mata peak. Excellent value for money... More

Great wine tour around Hawkes Bay. Our guide Rob did everything he could to make the tour as good as possible. We visited 5 wineries, went to a scenic peak and, as there were only the two of us on the bus, a brief stop at a honey place and at an Art Deco building. Rob went the extra mile... More
