          Private Martinborough Tour
          Highly recommend Kaewa Tours! We were visiting the area for the first time from the US and needed a private driver. Tom setup a Zoom to meet us live and review our needs. He setup a customized daily itinerary for the family ensuring that we got to our destinations timely and incorporated several tours along the way. He was prompt, flexible, professional, knowledgeable, knew everyone and most importantly had a great sense of humor. He became just an extension of our family. We thoroughly enjoyed New Zealand and were lucky enough to have Tom guiding us.

          Top wine tour with an amazing guide
          An amazing trip, Tom is so knowledgeable about everything in Wellington and showed us loads of things before we even left the city. It’s a stunningly beautiful drive out of the city and a poignant stop at a WWI site before dropping into the winelands. Our first stop was probably our highlight as we stopped off at Le Gra. A small place run by a family and in a quiet side road……….heaven. The staff were amazing and after a few pictures we were told about the wines by Brian. We then had a very tasty lunch and a look around the vines. Would highly recommend this place. Our next winery was Johner Estate, proper in the sticks, but so nice. Great tastings from the really knowledgeable young lady. I was talking proper BS now so was loving it. Our last stop was in Martinborough, a place called Poppies, we had a few photos in the vines before sampling a few of the liquid goods. Again, the staff are so knowledgeable, they seem to know a lot more than me and I have been tasting wine for a lot longer than them. We then headed back to Wellington. What an experience which was for my 40th birthday and worth every penny. Tom is a very easy guy to talk to and knows answers to pretty much anything you ask him. What a stunning tour, would highly recommend to anyone want to see the winelands of Wairarapa.

          A great visit.
          Tom was an excellent guide. We covered the city with photo opportunities at all of the viewpoints. He also took pictures from some special places. It was a great day.

          We had an unforgettable day with Andrew / most likely the best way to visit Wellington surroundings. We used his deep knowledge to discover hidden spots and used his full flexibility to tailor the day with our wishes. Great experience. Many thanks. Philippe and Nathalie.

          Must do tour
          I took the Private Wairarapa Wine Delights Tour from Wellington with Tom and it was a fantastic experience. All of the stops were amazing but Poppy's was my absolute favorite. It was great getting to chat with some of the owners to learn more about their wines. The icing on top was the fact that Tom takes photos of you during the experience. As I was traveling solo during my trip it was so nice to have some candid shots along with some additional staged ones to commemorate the experience. I will 100% be scheduling another experience with Tom if I ever get back to Wellington for another trip.

          Best in region!! 😀
          My husband and I had the pleasure of a free lance Kaewa Tour and we jumped at the opportunity. I have had the pleasure of a Foodie Tour in the past with my best friend and this time I took my husband. We stayed in Martinborough at another good friends business (exquisite) and this allowed for multiple local wine tours, a visit to the Honey Farm, Olive farm and a gin tasting. I noted there was a few companies doing similar jobs around the town that were offering a good (driver service) which had me feeling like I chose the best in the region. Tom and Jill were amazing hosts that were with us each step of the way. Incredibly well known and loved by all staff of all businesses we visited and we got some pretty good purchase deals along the way due to these established relationships. Absolute next level service, don't book anyone else. These guys are your one stop shop for local knowledge, care and engagement. Loved the whole weekend and we will be back again. Third time is the ultimate charm right? 😁

          Amazing private tour with Tom for our honeymoon!!
          We had an amazing private tour during our honeymoon with Tom! Tom and I emailed back and forth to come up with a somewhat custom tour to visit the Cape Palliser seal colony and then we added in some fantastic stops along the way. He picked us up at the cruise port and took us across the Rimutaka Crossing to Martinborough to Poppies for a delicious wine tasting and the best charcuterie board we have ever had. Then he drove us out to Cape Palliser to see the lighthouse and the seal colony. He even made time to stop by Kaitoke Regional Park where they filmed Rivendell in the Lord of the Rings. Tom even brought his camera to make sure he got some great photos of us during our experiences. We highly recommend taking a tour with Tom!!

          My wife and I had a very delightful day touring with Tom. His knowledge of the Wellington area is very thorough.
          Very complete tour of the Wellington area. The tour offers a very personal experience for a couple who want to spend a full day touring the Wellington area.

          Comprehensive private tour
          For a comprehensive overview of Wellington, with private insights from an informed guide, this is the place. Bryce made sure we did the must-sees like the waterfront, Parliament and a ride on the cable car, but made sure we had breathtaking views of the City from all sides which gave a great orientation not just to the history, but to the geography of Wellington.

          Wonderful experience!
          Tom was a delight to be with and we had a wonderful time seeing the sights of Wellington. He even went out of his way to hire a particular vehicle we needed for a disabled friend, which no one else would do! Thank you Tom for going above and beyond for us. Highly recommended!

          Fabulous wine tasting tour out of Wellington
          This was such an amazing day. Tom is such a wonderfully relaxed and knowledgeable guy who loves showing people wine country around Martinborough. His commentary throughout the day made this a truly memorable experience. Our wine tasting at Le Gra and lunch provided by Nicky Geary and Brian was delightful. The rose was particularly tasty. Later, at Johner Estate, we were surprised with freshly picked grapes in addition to the delicious wines. Our stop at Poppies was so much fun. The Sauvignon Semillon was something we don’t usually seek out, but this one was really good. Since Tom heard that we were Lord of the Rings fans, on the way back to Wellington, he stopped at Kaitoke Regional Park where Rivendell scenes were filmed. That was a real treat. Tom seems to know everyone, and they know him. If we ever make it back to New Zealand, we will certainly book his Foodie Delights Tour. Thanks for an unforgettable day!

        The whole day was amazing despite the slight drizzle. We were collected from home and driven to Kapiti where we did quite a few activities. Cider tasting and ice cream made from foraged plants was an amazing experience. Roasting our own coffee was a highlight. Sitting on heated concrete seats while eating lunch was so warming while we sipped on wine and had a lovely lunch. Tom was informative and very entertaining. I would recommend this trip with Tom as he was a great host. Thank you.
