        Customized Private Wine Day!!!
        Private wine tour with Michelle was wonderful! My friend and I were visiting from CA and wanted a top notch wine experience and Michelle delivered. She was super fun and a delightful informative tour guide. She arranges everything - we just showed up. Relaxed and never rushed tour with beautiful wineries! Just do it!

      Michelle, the owner operator of Living the dream wine tours, was an exceptional host. Everything was extremely well planned and executed. Michelle tailor made our tour and she hit the nail on the head. It was just what we'd wished for.
      Highly recommend.

      We had such a wonderful day with Michelle exploring the Otago region of the South Island as part of our honeymoon! The 7 hour tour brought us to 5 local stops and also included a delicious charcuterie lunch spread. Michelle knows so much about the area and we loved the variety of wines we tasted and vineyards and tasting rooms we visited. Don’t miss your chance to book with her!

      We had the BEST day on the wine tour in Wanaka with Michelle!! Michelle is so friendly, kind and fun to be around plus she knows so much about the area and lots of experience with wine tours in Napa and tours around NZ. We learned a ton about the area and also loved getting to hear about Michelle's background too. We really enjoyed all 4 wineries and had a perfect amount of time at each one. She also took us to a beautiful overlook spot and took some great photos for us too. I would HIGHLY recommend booking a tour with Michelle!!

      We went on a wine tour in Napa and Sonoma CA some years ago With Michelle from Platypus tours. Our tour was of smaller and unique wineries off the beaten path that she chose for us. We went to Tedeschi family winery and three others. All were great. Fast forward to last month, October. We knew Michelle was a resident of New Zealand and was doing tours over there. When we got there we found out she started her own company and booked a day with her. She knows New Zealand as well as which wineries we would like. We went to three wineries,Carrick,Māori Point and Scott base and a tour of the area.What a beautiful country and we had some exceptional wines. If you go to the Wānaka area of the South Island go to Living the dream wine tours and tell her you heard it from us. Karen and Kevin Beckett from Pleasanton CA

      Hi Karen and Kevin! Wow, that was so crazy to see you both again after the wild time we had in Napa! I was so pleased you found me and booked another epic day here in New Zealand. I can't wait to come visit you in California on my next trip back. Don't forget, you said you'd be my tour guide next time :) Cheers, Michelle Living the Dream Tours

      Michelle was such a great wine tour guide (and hilarious too)! She knows what she is doing and went the extra mile to make our tour amazing (thanks for the awesome photos). Such a fun experience and my husband and I felt it was great value as well. We wish her the best as she grows her business :)
