        The tour was great - Phil was engaging, knowledgable and entertaining. The chocolate shop was lovely, the winery was beautiful and the lighthouse/seal were special. The bus was comfortable, plenty of room and the scenery was spectacular - it was great to see a different side to Wellington. My only negative and it really is not a negative is that as we were only here for a couple of days and busy on tours so we had to say no to the cheese as I could not take it home with me when I left New Zealand. Great job Phil - we had a lovely day!!!

        Mammas day out
        Simon was a great tour guide knowledgeable on his wine and happy to answer any questions. It was a nice way to celebrate an early mothers day. The first stop Moy Hall was beautiful, well presented, great detail of wines. The second stop Grava was unfortunately underwhelming and not much engagement from the host she merely just gave us a piece of paper to read and small amounts of tastings. The third winery was the best Muirlea the hosts were generous in their pour, knowledge and humor and you could tell because all 9 of us on board brought something from him. Apart from the 2nd winery everything else was fab

        Had a great time. Phil was a terrific guide. The drive over the pass was quite beautiful. The three wineries were great choices. We really enjoyed our lunch at Moy Hall. Will definitely look at other tours in the future

        A fun and scenic tour with lots of delicious food!
        My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our day. We had opportunities to try marvelous food in charming shops and wineries, and saw many beautiful and wild places far off the beaten track. Included were some short walks in a variety of lovely terrains, and views of sea lions and many native birds. Our guide, Phil, was friendly, attentive, and provided loads of great information. The small size group meant we had time to chat with others also interested in this kind of experience. It was a terrific tour in every way.

        Absolutely Fantastic
        Fantastic day traveling through the countryside of the most southern eastern point of the North Island. Tour includes a cheese tasting, chocolate tasting and a lovely wine tasting with lunch at a beautiful vineyard Poppies. Then onto the coast where we see seals and their pups enjoying the wild surf. Perused the countryside with the many paddocks of sheep and cows. Ended the tour at Cape Ferry for a delicious fish n chips dinner by the chef Luc. Phil our guide was very knowledgeable and gave history and facts about the culture of New Zealand. Had a great sense of humor and answered all questions. Would highly recommend this tour. Full day and worth every miniute. Thanks Phil for a great day. Floridian Retirees visiting our son and family.

        An awesome wine tour
        Amazing tours. Tour guide, Matthew was so lovely and took a lot of trouble to explain things to us. He took us on an extended drive and even took the trouble to allow us dinner, before returning us to our accommodation. We were taken to some really awesome wineries. I would like to recommend this company for your wine tours in Martinborough

        Lovely Day out of the City
        A lovely visit to the Martinborough area. It was only a 90 minute drive from Wellington but the beautiful area felt like a completely different place. Lunch at the Moy Hall Vineyard was excellent, but be aware that all the dishes are advertised as suitable for 1.5 people, so if you're travelling alone don't have a large breakfast! Finally, Simon the guide was friendly and engaging and the drive over the mountains felt completely safe in his hands.

        Fantastic Wine and Foodie Tour
        Picked up by Zozo owner Phil at the cruise terminal and headed to Martinborough winery district with commentary on Wellington and surrounding area. Stopped for a photo shoot at the top of the winding mountain pass and onto C'est Cheese shop for tasting of 5 cheeses and coffee. Really good dialogue on cheese manufacturing by the owner. Next was Moy Hall winery starting with an informative tour of the vines hosted by the owner (another Phil!). Inside for a fantastic lunch with four generous tasting wines. Next stop at Olivo olive estate and a tour of the grove with owner Helen and olive oil tasting. Back on the bus and a visit to a small craft beer brewery for a slider of 4 different beers/cider. Last stop was a chocolate shop where Phil offered the group little samples of chocolate flavours to guess which bars they came from. Overall an excellent, informative and relaxed tour well worth the price and highly recommended,

        Good wine tour
        Good tour, which I’d certainly recommend. There’s a spectacular drive over the Remataku Pass to Martinborough, and then it’s not far between wineries. Unfortunately I joined the tour at Wellington Station & had a cold 30 mins wait. The last winery was very crowded & I found it less enjoyable, but it was a Saturday.

        Great Day!! Great Guide!!
        Simon was excellent. He was waiting for us, had excellent knowledge of Wellington and Martinborough. He knows the culture of the Māori and the nation. He lives in Wellington so when one winery was crowded, he took us to another. Great lunch recommendation and a lovely day!

      Our driver was Aaron and he was prompt in picking us up pier side from our cruise. He was extremely knowledgeable about this area since he grew up here and he knew the best fish restaurant around to take us to for lunch. He knew all the history of every site we saw and made sure we saw all of the important landmarks here. He was funny and friendly and we were all very satisfied with this trip and company.

      Everything about the tour was wonderful. Our tour guide was Aaron. He was knowledgeable, helpful and informative. He was very good at keeping us on schedule yet giving us sufficient time for each activity.
      The van was comfortable and the restaurant for lunch was fun with very fresh seafood.
      We will leave feeling like we really got to know Wellington.
      Thank you Aaron.

      This small group tour was the perfect way to see the sites of Wellington in a tight schedule (cruise ship stop). We had panorama views from Mount Victoria, then drove past the airport to the rugged coastline, around and through the city (including stops at Weto Cave, Old St. Paul's Church and Government House/ the Hive). Lunch at Chocolate Fish was an unexpected delight! Our guide Steve was knowledgeable about the area and an excellent driver.

      This was our first trip to New Zealand and we wanted to learn about Wellington. Michael was a warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable guide. From the initial stops around the city, to the Weta shop, to the amazing views at the bays and mountain tops… it was wonderful to see Wellington from so many vantage points. Lunch was comfortable and un-rushed. Ending with the botanical gardens seemed like just the right way to end the tour. The length of the tour was just right. I highly recommend this tour for visitors.

      A very enjoyable day trip visiting lookouts to give you a idea of the city layout and various architectural buildings. Steve was very informative. The only trouble was that at times he was hard to hear. But other wise well done to all involved.

      This was such a wonderful tour. Michael our tour guide was extraordinary. He was hella chill and funny. He tried to connect with each person on the tour and made everyone comfortable. His knowledge about Wellington also gave us another view on the actual city. The tour itself was beauuutiful. It gave the best of the best of Windy Welly. The small treasures that we got experience because of the tour made it all worth it. Theres something that you can't get by yourself, no matter how much you prepare. Yeah I would definitely do this again and again!

      We were pleasantly surprised when it was just us two on the tour. Other operators would have cancelled. Kelvin was a great host and with local knowledge showed us the best of Wellington. We went everywhere! The best part was that the itinery was flexible. For us this entailed a visit to New world to get the NZ treat 'Chocolate fish'. My only regret is that there was no time for the museum which has a lot of Mauri history. Keep that for next time.
