We booked this tour, a full day when we arrived in Napier on Sunday 26th February. We had a prompt pickup on the Monday for the morning part of the tour which included a trip around Hawkes Bay, up Te Mata and two vineyards. Because it was a small group (7) and only two vineyards before lunch the guide 'padded'... More

We went on the gastronomic discovery tour with Callum who was a great host and a very nice young man. The format was excellent in sampling food (ordered while in the car before arriving) and Callum did a great job with explaining the wine pairings. As with most great experiences, there were a few minor things that could have been... More

Not very well organised as they tried to cram too much into one morning. Visits to two wineries as well as Te Mata Peak and a visit to a Manuka Honey Centre was too ambitious. Honey centre was not advertised and this was a free entry anyway and impacted on time at the wineries . We had no time to... More

John was our guide for a full day wine tour and it was a fantastic experience! We were a group of four from Colorado and had a great time. The wineries we visited were all quite different and interesting. We loved the lunch and wine at Mission Winery. Moana Park and Alpha Domus were our two other favorites. Great wines... More
