          Winery tour in Napier
          My husband and I such a great time on this tour. Jill was so friendly and took us to a good variety of wineries, almost all of which customized our tastings to what we’d enjoy most. It was a wonderful day and great way to get a feel for NZ wine!

          Best Wine Tour in Hawkes Bay
          We had an absolutely amazing tour with Grant as our guide. This was my third time using Princy's, and I couldn't recommend them highly enough. We hope you liked your acrostic poem, Grant, and thanks for being such a cool dude 😎 I look forward to another future wine tour with Princy's. Thanks team.

          Private wine tour
          We did a private wine tour with Hamish. There were 4 of us in our group. Hamish picked us up, and we did tastings at 5 wineries, one of which was Abbey Estate, where we had lunch. All the costs for the tastings were included. All we had to pay for was our lunch and wine purchases. Hamish was really friendly, full of great knowledge on the wineries we were visiting, and joined us for. The wine tastings were all organized and lunch booked. It really was a great day out and very enjoyable. Would certainly recommend this to anyone wanting an enjoyable day out. Cheers to Hamish for his hospitality.

          Fantastic wines & loads of insider information on the Hawk’s Bay area.
          We had a private four hour tour with Ian and it was fantastic. We visited three wineries and all provided a wide array of tastings from sparkling, to white and on to red and finishing with a desert wine. Ian found out we were also big fans of local olive oil so he made a stop at a local olive oil producer. We ended our half day tour with multiple bottles of wine and added olive oil at the end. Ian is extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the area and wine production in New Zealand and specific to the Hawk’s Bay area. Highly recommended if you are interested in learning about the Hawk’s Bay wine industry.

          Prinsys tours and their Guide Jill ( hint, ask for Jill ) in Hawke’s Bay New Zealand
          We spent three days being driven around the area including our transfers with Jill. She was a great guide. Friendly, knowledgeable, everyone in Hawke’s Bay knows her. She took us on our first day to Te Mata peak and on the way down to town for a wine tour stopped at the local Honey museum as we had a half hour to fill. This was a really fun little diversion. The next day Jill took us to three great wineries and dropped us off for lunch at Cellar 495 in Hastings. She accompanied us to each spot, gave us some history and back story and engaged with the proprietors who all knew her well. She drives a sweet BMW and everything about the experience was fun. She was always on time. On the morning of our departure she gave us a wonderful tour of down town Napier on our way to the airport. Five star service all the way.

          Fun , private cruise ship excursion!
          We had a great time. Appreciated Grant's knowledge of the area and wines. Pick up was prompt and drop off back out our cruise ship timely. The variety of Cellar Doors that we visited was nice too. Would have liked to had one more stop or opportunity to pick specific wineries to visit. But the area had just suffered from significant cyclone damage which hindered some flexibility. Would recommend to others.

          A great days wine tasting
          Our guide Gill (Apologies if the spelling is wrong) was very knowledgeable about the Napier area, wine in general and had a great rapport with the staff at all the wineries we visited. We were a group of 4 and had 2 other visitors from Australia on the tour, Gill quickly made us welcome with introductions and general conversation. We visited 5 wineries, all were different in the selection of wines to taste and the winery staff were very knowledgeable about the wine from grape to bottle. We would happily recommend friends to use Prinsy's for a great day out wine tasting.

          Great trip. Great guide
          Guide was very knowledgeable and took us to 4 super vineyards as well as to Te Mate peak where we had stinking 360 degree views. Great lunch at a vineyard and some great wines. Very comfortable vehicle. All in all a great day and I highly recommend Prinsys

          Fun tour!
          Great tour guide who was knowledgeable about the area and the wine industry. She was also keen to answer questions. The 4 wineries were good selections and staff very attentive. Loved the size of the group (12 folks). It was easy to socialize and we had fun!!! Thanks for an intro to New Zealand wine.

          Great Tailored Wine Tour
          This day was brilliant. I booked from the U.K., and all advanced communications were spot on. Gill picked us up at the allotted time, (great Merc Transporter) and her manner was perfect. Not over fussy and absolutely enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We visited 5 vineyards picking up the remainder of our party at the second. Great boutique vineyards, a Prinsy’s cheese board at ‘Element’ and lots of fun and opportunity to buy. Dropped us back at the end of the day happy and well stocked. Thanks Gill! Definitely recommend.

        Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Pick up was on time. Our guide Denise went out of her way planning the itinerary to ensure we didn’t get caught at places where there may be bus loads of tourists as a huge cruise ship was in port. Denise was very informative and passionate in her role. She engaged with everyone in the group. We nearly missed out on the tour as booking’s were heavy however Di at Prinsy’s reshuffled some things to accommodate the 4 of us. We are so grateful she did. This was an excellent day out. We will do the full day tour next time after this one being so good.

        Grant not only drove the van but informed us about the history of Hawkes Bay, focusing of course on the fine wines of the region. Small group indeed! Just us four so we had plenty of time to chat with each of the reps we met at the four wineries. We tasted between four and eight wines at each of the four stops and spent more time on the tour than we expected - which was a good thing. An excellent value and a knowledgeable and most pleasant guide!

        A fabulous tour by Neil yesterday, we visited some very special wineries which we wouldn’t have known about without this tour. A highlight was visiting Element Winery, a small private winery, where the heavens opened and the group bonded under shelter. Neil was a great host, keeping everyone on track and on time and making sure the tour was fun and informative. Definitely recommended!

        Highly recommend this tour! Our tour guide Hamish was knowledgeable and friendly and chose 4 fantastic wineries for us to visit including one that was exclusive to Prinsy's. The wineries were all differing sizes and gave a great variation of wines to taste. The drive up The Mata Peak was a really nice addition to the tour. Overall a fantastic day out.

        We booked a half day tour with Prinsy’s based on online reviews and were not disappointed! Ian was a great host and so knowledgeable about the area and wines. We were picked up promptly at our apartment and spent the most glorious day being whisked around four wineries. We were lucky with the beautiful weather and a wonderful small group of people to share the afternoon with. Can’t wait for our next trip to Hawkes Bay as I’m sure we’ll tag on another tour! Highly recommend this to anyone sitting on the fence.

        My wife and I had the pleasure to follow our guide Ian on a half day wine tasting tour around Napier. He was super friendly and very knowledgeable about wines. The four stops were all great and we got to taste a lot of real good wines. They don't just stop at the usual places but also take you to some hidden gems like Gimblett Gravels where we were welcomed by one of the owners under a gazebo in front of their house. Very special. Thank you again for a great time and best of luck for the future.

        I can’t say enough good things about our Tour. Ian picked us up from our Accomodation and due to being in Level 2, we were in a mini van just for us and our 2 friends. Ian was really knowledgable about the region and the coney wards and a great guy! We visited 4 vineyards and had lots of tastings. We were able to go to a fantastic small vineyard, which no other tours can go to. This was so great and so different to anything we had done on a wine tour before. They were really responsible with respecting the level
        2 rules and made us feel really safe for our tour.
        I would definitely recommend this company if you are looking to do a tour in Napier/Hastings!
