Throughly enjoyed the two wineries. The honey stop was also terrific, great for gifts! The pottery wasn't a highlight, but was good to stretch the legs. The knowledge of our guide was wonderful and greatly appreciated. The chocolate shop was a real highlight, make sure you save room to enjoy some truly delicious treats.
The pick of the day was the sculpture park, lots of fresh-air and the diversity in the art was inspiring. Really something for everyone.
Excellent tour! Thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting, especially at Ransom Wines. Dave, my tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Highlights was the lunch at Brick Bay and the visit to see the Kauri tree.... Worth every penny!
Loved the small group tour. Much better than the large group ones. Our driver/guide was interesting and had tons of information to share with us the whole trip. The three Vineyards were very different, so it made it more interesting. The pottery factory was a nice change. The meal was great, so was the coffee stop.
This was a great tour. We really enjoyed getting out of the city and seeing the sights. Our favorite had to be Brick Bay Winery! The area is so beautiful and the lunch was amazing. Some of the best food we had while in New Zealand. As if on cue during lunch a flock of sheep came down the mountainside. Chocolate Brown was a high point as well. This was a small group tour but we were the only ones that day so we were able to move somewhat at our own pace which was nice. John our guide was very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this tour!
