About
Join our flexible & hassle-free local winery shuttle service. Departs daily from Queenstown at midday (12.00pm). With no set timetable & no stress, you simply discuss with your friendly onboard wine guide, the options of where you'd like to be dropped off to & picked up from. You will be well entertained with lots of freedom at an array of winery restaurants & tasting rooms, all highlighting our amazing Central Otago wines. There’s lots to do, such as wine & cheese tastings, walking & bike ride adventures, or enjoying a local craft beer. All the wineries are very close together making it easy to give you the best day out & we'll have you back in town by 6pm (approx.). Our Wine Hopper service offers you the easiest way to enjoy the wineries at your own pace, in your own way, on the day. Check out our reviews & give us a call if you have any questions. Wine Hopper Bus is locally owned & operated in Queenstown NZ.

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.

Really good day out. My girlfriend and I opted for the bike & wine tour, which meant a 2 hour ride through lovely terrain at the start of our trip (incidentally, I’m not a regular cyclist but my girlfriend is, and she said the ride was a bit tougher and more hilly than advertised, so keep that in mind if you’re booking this tour!)

We had a few questions about the wineries to make sure we got the most out of our tour, and Andrew was very friendly and accommodating both on the phone and in person. He explained that there’s no timetable - all the wineries are close enough together in the Gibbston Valley that he could come and drive us from one to the next at a few minute’ notice.

We were picked up from central Queenstown and visited three wineries in addition to our bike ride, and that was taking it at a leisurely pace. One or two more would’ve been doable if we’d wanted.

We tried some nice wines, had some nice food, saw some nice scenery, and met some nice people from around the world on the tour - a very satisfying day.

Joining Ed's Wine Hopper Bus on the 17th was an fantastic experience. Ed is extremely knowledgable about all things wine in the region and made awesome recommendations. This was the first wine hopper experience I've ever had, and I loved the options it offers. At the end of the day, Ed was generous in his karaoke skills.

Ed was the perfect guide, so knowledgeable and accommodating. There were only 4 of us on the tour, which was perfect. We visited 3 wineries at a leisurely pace (our choice). This is a great, low key way to experience the wineries near Queenstown. Highly recommend!

A real fun day in the Gibbston Valley. My wife and I preselected our vineyards and our great host Angus drove us to the wineries we selected, plus a few others. Angus know his wine and the wineries and really kept things moving. We only had two appointments and didn’t think we’d be able to get to other wineries but Angus got us three others! Considering this is a drop off tour and people are going to different wineries Angus did an amazing job of shuttling people around and we had very little wait time between tastings. Highly recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon of wine tours and tasting with Ed! Prior to our visit, I exchanged emails to confirm the location and timing of reservations was suitable. The transportation was easy and personally tailored to our group and reservations!
