Thoroughly enjoyed this day trip - I really recommend it! It was such a fun way to spend the day with friends. The wine was great, lunch was excellent and David was a very knowledgeable, friendly host. Couldn't have been better!

You are right. What better way to spend with a group of friends that our Wineries Out West Tour. Learn about the art of tasting wine from one of our friendly, knowledgeable guides. Whist we all have our favourite wines, and yes we certainly taste those varieties, we also get you out of your comfort zone and taste not-so-common wines like Albarino, Montepulciano, Lagrein, Marsanne to name just a few. Add in a well presented 3 -Course Vineyard lunch and this is the perfect recipe for a "Fabulous Fun Day Out" as you mention. Thank you for choosing our tour.

Loved your head line "10!! Out of 5 :)). " It is clear you had a very special day visiting the most famous and iconic attraction in New Zealand and also a lot of fun. We want all our 16 tours to be fun; to be an adventure. You clearly had both and also so pleased to read that one of our tour guides helped make our Hobbiton Movie set Tour a day that you will remember for a long, long time. Isn't Hobbiton the most idyllic and enchanting place you could ever visit. I suspect also that you have some magical photos that you will treasure. Thank you for choosing our tour.

Thank you! You are right that our Wine Tasting + 3 Course Lunch Tour is a "brilliant day out" to spend with friends, maybe celebrating a birthday or anniversary; also the perfect excursion off a cruise ship where you taste the flavours of the very first wine region of New Zealand. Add in a yummy 3-couse well presented vineyard lunch and one of our knowledgeable guides and you can sip, savour and remember a very special day. Thank you for choosing our tour.

Thank you! Isn't our Hobbiton Movie Set Tour the most magical experience you could ever have on a 7 Hour return excursion from Auckland? We want you to just sit back as we journey to Middle Earth in the comfort of one of our yellow Mercedes and be transported along the quaint county roads (specially designed by our Company) en route with spectacular and ever-changing scenery into the enchanting world of Hobbiton. Is there any more idyllic location? Thank you also for the lovely comments about one of our tour guides and for choosing our tour. Our guides, as you experienced first hand, are renowned for their depth of knowledge of not only Hobbiton and the points of interest en route but equally Auckland on our Historic CBD Walking Tour but the greater Auckland as well as you experienced.

Thank you for these lovely comments about our tour and one of our tour guides. You visited 4 of the finest vineyards in New Zealand in our Wine Tasting + 3-Course Lunch Tour. We have specially chosen these vineyards are we believe they are amongst the very best in New Zealand; this is the original wine growing region in New Zealand. What better way to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or just a catch up with friends than to sip and savour the tastes of the Wineries in West Auckland. Thank you for choosing our tour
