Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Coleen and Dave organised a great day out in their 57 Cadillac for us. Visited some great wineries and their knowledge of the area was wonderful. Visiting some wineries of quality we had not heard of before plus some known ones
Thoroughly recommended for anyone wanting a wine experience.

We left Blenheim with a memorable experience thanks to Dave and Colleen at Highlight Wine Tours. The service provided was beyond excellent. From the moment I enquired about a private tour in a classic car as a surprise day out for my partner I was well looked after. Dave helped me with my car option and presented a list of available wineries we could visit. From the moment Dave picked us up from our accommodation right through to the end of the day the service was phenomenal. We had a wonderful day being shown around by Dave and his knowledge about the region and wineries was very insightful. Spending the day with Dave was very enjoyable, he was great company to have at every winery and very personable, friendly and provided lots of entertainment through the day. The tour itself was perfect. Our tour included 4 wineries for tastings which we were able to spend a decent amount time at each to take in the whole experience. We stopped off at Wairau River for a beautiful lunch and ended the day with a visit to Makana confections. I had selected the 65 Chevrolet Caprice for the day, riding around in this beauty well exceeded our expectations. Throughout the entire day Dave was extremely generous and hospitable. At the end of the day Dave drove us back to our accommodation and even offered to drop us off to their recommended bar and later on joined us for a drink. I cannot thank Dave and Colleen enough for an absolutely perfect day that both of us enjoyed and will remember for a long time.

A fantastic day with Dave in his convertible 1968Ford Mustang. We visited several boutique wineries, tasted some great Marlborough wines and had a great meal at the lovely Wairau River. Dave was a very personable, friendly and knowledgeable guide/driver/host and we really enjoyed his company. The whole experience was definitely a 10 out of 10.

What an awesome day on our wine tour with Dave. Great knowledge of the area and the wineries. We left it in Dave’s hands to pick the wineries we were to visit and he chose beautiful, family owned wineries with amazing wines. He even changed the car to a Chevy half way through our tour. We can’t thank you enough Dave for an amazing day. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone. Can’t wait to do it again

My wife & I were visiting New Zealand and decided we wanted to take a private full day tour of the Marlborough wine region. I researched private tour operators in the area on Trip Advisor and chose Highlight Wine Tours due to all the excellent reviews and the choices of vehicles to tour in. I chose the 67 Mustang Convertible! Upon arrival to Blenheim airport Dave was there to pick us up right on time. The beautiful Mustang was there waiting! Dave took us on a tour of the area before the wineries opened. Dave resides in the region and knows it well. It was a beautiful summer day in late November, and we drove around with the top down throughout the wine region. It felt like we were in heaven! We had private tastings at every winery we visited. Very personalized service in a relaxed atmosphere! We had a nice lunch at a winery as well. Dave had a great personality and made the day absolutely memorable! At the end of our tour he returned us to the airport capping off a great day in paradise! I would not hesitate to hire Dave again and highly recommend him!!

We had an excellent tour in Dave’s beautiful ‘67 mustang. We visited plenty of family owned vineyards, met lots of really cool people and tasted some very fine wines.

A superlative experience! We thought we knew Marlborough wines as Nelson and Blenheim locals but little did we know. David and his Chevy Bel Air were the consummate hosts. Everything was just right. David was there organising us and key people at wineries when we needed him. A fount of knowledge and passion for wine when we wanted it which meant that we discovered Bladen (a must) and also lovely to chat with about pretty much anything really. He also let us have our time as friends to be together and enjoy. The Chevy was great to sink into and the boot had generous space for our purchases. Just brilliant thanks Highlight Tours.

Our family of five (2 adults, 3 kids) had a wonderful time exploring the Marlborough region with Dave in his 57 Chevy. It was such a unique and special experience that we'll never forget. We loved the car and getting to know our friendly host. David was very patient and accomodating to all our needs. He has a great knowledge of the area. We loved all the wineries, chocolate factory and brewery we visited. A great way to see the Marlborough with your family.

Our tour was in February and it was a beautiful day. The choice of Vineyards was great, mainly boutique smaller ones where the service is more personal. Lunch was beautiful and the whole day was relaxed and super friendly. The driver was extremely knowledgeable and was happy to swap things around to suit the group. Would absolutely recommend.

A bit late posting this review, our tour was at the end of December, sorry!
Our guide was super informative, and got a good feel for the group. As we were going through the tastings a bit faster than anticipated, she was able to also spontaneously arrange a brewery visit for us in between reserved tastings. The day felt flexible, yet very well organized. We left the choice of wineries up to the guide, and she did a great job by picking very unique vineyards and venues. Lunch was great as well! Highly recommend.
