Great afternoon tour with Frank to 3 diverse wineries. Large well known and smaller more boutique wineries made for an interesting and diverse experience. Franks local knowledge of the area and expertise in all things wine made for an informative experience. Can't not mention the brewery visit, capped the day off nicely. Highly recommend this tour, a real must do. Thanks again Frank

We recently went on the Full Day tour. Frank our guide was amazing. His knowledge of Napier and history was informative and educational. He added the personal touch and went the extra mile to make our tour memorable, even recommending a couple of restaurants to try. The tour went to 4 wineries and a brewery and we were able to taste wines/beers that we would not of normally tasted. Really enjoyed the boutique wineries. Tour included all tasting fees and a food platter at Oak Estate. Would highly recommend this tour and company - thank you Frank and Frankly Tours Sharon and Brett

Food platter was OMG chefs kiss delicious and brewery was a perfect end to a fun filled day!
