Really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was lovely - the vineyards we visited were gorgeous - the scenery absolutely beautiful and the wines, all unique to the area were excellent. Well worth doing.

The driver/guide was great. He knew wines, the area highlights and was very open to questions. A couple of the visited wineries could be replaced as the their guides rushed through their presentation and the tasting was not adequate.

I really enjoyed this wine tour. Our tour guide Tony was extremely knowledgable about wines and he was also one of the reasons why I found this tour so fun and enjoyable. I strongly recommend all the wine lovers to join this trip. You will have an amazing time!

Fabulous trip -a small amount of people which is great for this type of experience. Richard our driver/guide was full of information about the area. All of the vineyards were interesting and welcoming. The platter lunch was very good and full of differing tastes. I liked many of the wines I tasted and I bought two bottles during the day - to take back to Christchurch to drink with the friend I was visiting. I would suggest this trip to anyone who is in the Queenstown area, it was a great day out.
