The driver Dave (not the owner Dave) was very nice and helpful. Knowledge level of wine and wineries very good. We asked to visit vineyards that are award winning and small in size with more character and were very satisfied with the itinerary.

My husband and I had an amazing time on this tour. Larissa was bubbly, well-versed in wines and extremely accommodating. I really enjoyed that she took us to lots of family-owned vineyards and it was nice that she chose vineyards that she likes herself. She let us take our time at each place and asked whether we wanted to visit... More

How can you not love a day out in a cute Combi, tasting beautiful wines in a gorgeous part of NZ, spending time with the fabulous Colleen? This tour was well-organised, personal, friendly, accommodating and heaps of fun. We visited five vineyards, stopping off for lunch at the exquisite Wairau River Wines, making it just the right amount of different... More

Went to a number of family run or smaller vineyards. Great wine, knowledgeable, and no lines! Chocolate at the end was incredible! Would recommend, Larissa was helpful and friendly, thank you :)

Really enjoyable tour of 5 wineries with Colleen. Really knowledgable and extremely well organised. The split screen VW combi was awesome (and we aren't Americans)

The only way to see Marlborough wine region! David is an excellent and accommodating guide who will take you in classic style in his vintage VW Kombie van. Knows the boutique wineries and is on a first name basis with everyone. Will tailor a tour to suit your own interests and will flex during the day to let you do... More

Enjoyed this tour with David on 31 December. Visited six wineries and had lunch in a very good restaurant in one of them. In all wineries the presentations were very professional and informative. I personally fell in love with Riesling from Framingham. I used to be a big SB lover but after this tour i love rieslings! We had a... More

We had a wonderful tour today with David. He is so personable and knowledgeable, not just about the wine, but about the families who make the wine and the region. We want to St. Claire, Hunters, Wairau River Wines, Spy Valley, and Framingham. The other guests were also very pleasant to spend the day with. The van did not feel... More
