Tim was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. We loved the vineyards he chose, they were all really different but equally as lovely. Our group of 11 had a great day out and I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to the Hawkes Bay!

From start to finish this trip was totally excellent. The driver who picked us up shared his knowledge of the area, and noted points of interest for us. First course at St Georges winery - light, balanced entree with matching wines - superb. Then on to the views from the stunning Te Mata Peak. Allowed us to get a better idea of the whole region. Main course at Craggy Range with very entertaining table service from Jacob (what a gem of information), wines were perfectly matched. Beautiful venue. Then last but by no means least, dessert at Mission. Lots of changes here and the venue looked stunning. Dessert wine and port to finish. Yes, we would definately do this trip again. A great way to see the area and sample some of the fabulous food and wine.

Hi Helen Thanks for your glowing review regarding your Evening Progressive dinner- sorry i hadnt seen the review come through. Certainly a great way to experience some top quality winery restaurants if you are only in the Bay for a short time.

We recently chartered 2 buses for our staff Christmas function that was being held approx. 35 minutes out of town. Glen, who arranged all the boxing details for us was very easy to work with and responded to queries quickly, tolerated our changes with a smile and was overall very helpful. Our two drivers Brian and Robbie were very accommodating and great value on the night. Thanks for all your help, we will no doubt use you again in the future.
