Lance was a great driver/ tour guide. Very informative and a quirky sense of humor and always willing to take a pic for you. Wonderful selection of wineries and especially food - much more than expected. A very enjoyable day.

We stayed on Waiheke Island and they picked us up within a block from our door. The trip was well planned and the wineries and olive tasting rooms were outstanding in their product and service.
