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!!
