We had a great day touring the wineries with Mike from Jade Tours. We visited 5 wineries and had a great lunch at Giesen Wines, followed by a visit to the chocolate factory Yum. He was very knowledgeable and friendly, on time and got us back to the ship with a little extra tour around Picton! Thanks for a great day.

When I have gone on a cruise, I have always booked shore excursions through the cruise lines. This was the first tour I booked through Viator so I was a little apprehensive about it. But there was no reason to be. The cost of the excursion was a lot less than a similar excursion through the cruise line and certainly more enjoyable because there were only about 10 people on the tour as compared to 30-40 on a similar excursion booked with the cruise line. The excursion turned out just as it was advertised. We went to at least 4 different wineries, a chocolate shop, and ate at one of the wineries on our own which had fabulous food. The tour guide was outstanding. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to taste many varieties of New Zealand wines.

Our tour guide Sam was wonderful. She took us to several wineries where we did some tasting and learned about the history of NZ wines. My husband was quite impressed that the wine industry was started by a Croatian, from his own homeland. Sam told us a lot about NZ and answered all our questions. The chocolate factory was fantastic were we sampled some home made preservative free chocolate. She also took photos of us continuously which will form part of our memories of NZ. We completed our tour at an amazing lookout point. We have returned to Sydney with many beautiful memories of NZ. The people are wonderful and friendly. I would highly recommend a day tour with Sam.
