      Great Winery Experience
      Ed was the perfect guide, so knowledgeable and accommodating. There were only 4 of us on the tour, which was perfect. We visited 3 wineries at a leisurely pace (our choice). This is a great, low key way to experience the wineries near Queenstown. Highly recommend!

      It was ok
      Wife booked this I'm not much for travelling in Van's. This was a white van not a bus. Nothing to complain about really was just average. Not much choice 5 or 6 wineries.

      A great day visiting some excellent wineries and breweries. Our drivers, Lance and Andrew, were courteous, informative and added to the enjoyment of the day. The food at Cargo was simple, but delicious.

      excellent service. they were on time at our stop and dropped up a bit closer to the trail than shown on the map. Both Phil and Andrew were courteous, and offered information pertaining to the trip and Queenstown in general.

      Amazing time and great driver
      We went for a rainy day with Lance who told us plenty about the tours and vineyards. 10/10 recommend doing this for the great people who run it and the beautiful places you go.

      Very helpful staff for the assistance of booking (Chris) and the car services (Phil). I did the late booking due to the uncertainty of wheather, Chris helped me to resolve the problem encountered via the website. Also, since it is just four of us today in the low season, Phil offered very flexible services to us to drive us down to several spots and it seems he can read my mind as a visitor in New Zealand just the 2nd day. We were really enjoy the trip and glad to meet such nice guys. Thank you so much!

    We had the pleasure of touring on the Wine Hopper Bus with Lance (driver) yesterday. We joined two other couples from NZ and enjoyed 4 wineries, tastings and lunch. The bus was clean and very comfortable and Lance provided outstanding commentary with amazing knowledge not only of the wines and the Otago region, but much of the history of the local area. The current roadworks around Queenstown created traffic issues, but with his local knowledge of the roads, Lance was able to bypass all of the traffic jams and deliver us back into Queenstown safely and in a timely way. We can highly recommend this wine tour with the leisurely nature and flexibility of the tour. Thank you Lance and happy retirement!! - Peter & Elaine - Mornington Peninsula , Victoria, Australia

    My 22 year old daughter and I joined my brother and his wife and their two younger children (11 and 9) for the wine hopper bus in Queenstown.
    Our driver and guide Andrew provided excellent service and was friendly and knowledgeable.
    We had such a fun afternoon!
    You pay extra for the tastings once you get to the wineries, which we expected and it was made clear from the booking stage.
    We would all do this again and highly recommend it!

    This was my second time using the Queenstown Wine Hopper Bus and I would highly recommend them. Our driver was professional, entertaining and great to deal with. It is such a breeze and fantastic service knowing that you will be well looked after while enjoying wine and endless cheese boards through out Gibbston Valley. Until next time!

    Myself and five friends had a wonderful day on the Wine Hopper Bus visiting wineries in the Gibbston Valley wine region. Our driver and guide Andrew was excellent, he was very friendly and accommodating and bent over backwards to made sure our day ran without a hiccup. I can highly recommend the Wine Hopper Bus for anyone looking for a fun, relaxed day out. :)

    Heather made the whole booking experience incredibly simple, she was brilliant offering advice on (eg) order of wineries, lunch bookings etc. Our Driver, Simon, picked us up from our accommodation and is one of the best communicators I've met. He was friendly, available, and reliable. Thanks Wine Hopper Bus, cheers!! Margot

    We had a fantastic day with our driver, Andy, he was very informative and considered our thoughts of what type of wineries we visited. Taking us to beautiful boutique wineries who offered great tastings with a personal approach. We tasted amazing wines and enjoyed delicious food along our trail with wonderful scenery. Would definitely recommend when you are in Queenstown. Thank you Andy and Wine Hoppers!

    This is the only way to tour wine country from my perspective! The tour feels customized and personal as you are allowed to pick the wineries you wish to visit among many options available. You just let the driver know where you want to be dropped off, and simply call to be picked up when you are ready so you can stay as long as you like at a winery or as short a time as you desire! The van is comfortable, well maintained and clean and the driver is friendly, knowledgeable and goes out of his way to make the tour meaningful. For example, we passed a lake with trees that had beautiful fall colors and I remarked on what a wonderful picture it would make and he offered to stop there so I could take a photo! The tour group is kept small so when you hop back on the bus you can compare notes with other passengers and by the end of the day, have made new friends! It was a fantastic, fun and wonderful experience which I highly, highly recommend!!!

    "𝐜𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐝 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥" 🥰 Reviews like yours just delight us, because way back when we started it was key to us to "make wine personal" so that each & every person can savour, enjoy & take something from their own experience, that was relatable and fun. Thank you so much for you amazing review, it means a lot to all of us here 💞

    This was an excellent experience. We were picked up in Queenstown and driven by the very informative Andrew to Arrowtown where we picked up e-bikes. The bikes were super easy to manage. The ride along the river Arrow was brilliant, and easy terrain. We got to the Gibbston Valley winery where we left our bikes (which were picked up later) and went inside for lunch. This was served in the courtyard and was perfect after our ride. Angus, the bus driver, found us at lunch. He did a wonderful job with information, enthusiasm, and ferrying us around other wineries after we’d finished lunch. In fact, he was amazing in keeping track of which wineries various groups were at, picking them up and dropping them at their next winery choice. We were also very appreciative that he managed to fit in taking us back to Queenstown earlier than we’d originally organised. Overall a really wonderful day.

    With so many options we weren’t entirely sure what wine tour service to go with.
    The Wine Hopper bus was recommended by the front desk staff at our accomodation.

    This was the perfect tour for us.

    Andrew was a wonderful host, being a combination of informative yet relaxed, professional yet easygoing. He knows his stuff but doesn’t force information on you.

    We we able to pick and choose where we went, what we did and how long we stayed at each place and Andrew would just pop back and forth to accomodate all the parties in the very comfy and spacious van. Bear in mind this is 2020 so nothing was overly busy so we had the luxury of not needing to book for lunch anywhere.

    We couldn’t recommend Andrew and The Wine Hopper bus highly enough

    Such a great day! The weather was stunning, the other wine tasters were fun to hang out with, and the wine was spectacular! Our wonderful driver, Lance, gave us the ins and outs of the various wineries and had an excellent rapport with the winemakers. He made recommendations and clearly knew what he was talking about! The tour was self paced and we just texted him when we were ready to move on. It was a relaxed day, and the whole vibe was casual and chilled out and all about us getting to know the region. Lance also dropped us at our spa booking at Onsen after which was fantastic as it meant we could hang out at the vineyards longer. Love the support and “we’re all in this together” vibe the people of Queenstown have during this tough time for the town. Thanks for an epic afternoon Lance!
