We had the best experience on the wine sampler. The bus was clean and flash. There was great music in the trip. The wineries were great with a wide selection of local wines to sample. Our tour leader Megan was amazing, so lovely, knowledgeable and down to earth. Highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to experience the local central Otago wines.

Had really enjoyable 5 hr Wine Sampler tasting tour with four friends while in Queenstown. Altitude were great and picked us up virtually outside our hotel. Alia, our driver and host, was informative and delightful. Lovely Mercedes van with short videos were fun and informative. We visited Gibbston Valley and the famous wine cave. Ivonne at Valli wines, Kinross did a fabulous tasting for us where we also shared a delicious platter for lunch. We sampled wines from Coal Pit, Hawkshead, Kinross valley and Wild Irishman wineries. The mulled wine sample from Mt. Rosa Wines, "The Changer", was delicious and just had to get some of the Brennan Wines "Not Port" and Pinot Noir which were amazing! A great trip for scenery, points of interest of the area and great wine! Definitley a must do when in Queenstown, highly recommended.
