        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

        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.

        We are from Australia and had the best day. From the time our tour guide Michael picked us up from Wellington Station we knew we were going to have a great day. He was interesting, had the best sense of humour, and we had a ball. Thanks Michael from Sally Susan Jenny and Cintiia ❤️

        Great Wellington tour from a cruise ship
        My Wife & I took this tour in Wellington on Tuesday 9th of April 2024, we were picked up from where our cruise ship was docked, our tour guide Michael was awesome, he had a great sense of humor & was very friendly, we visited Old Saint Paul’s Anglican church, amazing views from various coastlines, beaches & lookouts, including right up to the base of one of many wind turbines, we visited the “Workshop Weta Cave” (a place with models to purchase & many on display from movie sets like the Lord of the rings/ Hobbit & others. We had no idea what this was before we went on the tour), we had a fantastic lunch a the “Spruce Goose” we also visited the Lady Norwood Rose Garden. We highly recommend this tour & company.

        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,

      Great fun day with Phil, lots of information and stories of the region as you leave Wellington over the Rimutakas to Martinborough, Greytown for 5 hours of fun. Ours was a mixed tour as there was only 4 of us, we had the best of both tours; 3 wineries, cheese and chocolate.
      Really enjoyed the fun chocolate tasting and of course the yummy cheese. Phil even had a cool bag that could store purchased goodies and keep fresh until the end of the tour. We visited boutique and large scale wineries which was an interesting mix. Phil was incredibly friendly and helpful - we would thoroughly recommend this tour, a wonderful informative and fun day.

      It was a nice day out with C'est Cheese and Moy Hall Wines being my favourite stops. Had a lovely Porchetta for lunch at the winery which was cooked beautifully. I was disappointed that the 4th stop in the town of Martinborough at the end didn't happen. It was supposed to be a 45min stop according to the itinerary but instead our driver just drove through the town.

      That's not the case at all Iren! Your 4th stop happened as mentioned in your review! The tour covers cheese, chocolate and wine tastings and you opted for the extended lunch including the porchetta at the winery as your additional stop. This additional time could have been spent at the Town Square or Martinborough Sweet Shop instead of having the vineyard lunch as per discussion prior to the tour.

      A Waiarapa taster describes our half day tour foodie tour; it left us wanting to go back to explore further on another trip to Wellington.
      We were treated to a personal tour with Phil as our knowledgeable and personable guide. Really enjoyed C'est Cheese with its comprehensive range of deli products and the divine Schoc Chocolate; the Hot Cross Bun Chocolate has disappeared well before Easter!!
      Highlight was Moy Hall and their Terrace pinot noir - a divine smooth nectar. Looking forward to our next Martinborough adventure.

      From inquiring up to the end of the tour was great.
      They accommodated our requests and the tour guide was knowledgable in the places we visited.

      This is a great tour! I wasn't able to book a spot on the all-day wine tour, and I'm actually glad that I booked this tour instead. It is a perfect combination of food and wine and the shorter time around 5-6 hours was perfect. Aaron is a great guide, providing information about the area, the wines, chocolates, food, etc. Our group had a great day! There were also a handful of solo travelers (myself included) and the group melded together quickly. This is another sign of Aaron being a good guide and getting everyone involved. Don't miss out!

      Aaron was a great guide very informative about the area and shared his own foodie experience growing up and clearly showed his passion for the region.
      I would have loved another winery tasting, as most of the trip was driving to and from Martinborough.
      It would have been wonderful to have some time in this lovely quaint village.
      Great tour, but it went so quickly and before we knew it, we were on our way home.
