    A most knowledgeable guide of his region and on the wines and wine area we visited.
    I have no hesitation in recommending Phil's Tours to anyone visiting Wellington .We will be back one day and I would certainly arrange to participate on one of his food and drink packages.

    This was a fantastic trip packed with highlights - wine, cheese, and chocolate, beautiful forests, sea views, and getting off the tourist trail. We loved the flexibility to see and do what we preferred, and the great chat as we drove through such a gorgeous part of the region.

    All aspects of the Martinborough Winery and Foodie Tour ran very professionally. From the pickup, commentary, tastings and lunch at Moy Hall, Olivo olive grove watching them pick the olives, Schoc chocolates, C'est Cheese platter with great coffee and Muirlea Rise vineyard for the banter and humor. The hospitality at each venue was exceptional, a wonderful day out certainly coming back.

    What a great day we had with the lovely Tom Collier of Kaewa Tours. It was a great itinerary - a full day, but easy going so nothing felt rushed. Tom is a mine of information and nothing is too much trouble for him. What makes this a great tour is that it's "bespoke" in the way that he focuses on individual groups rather than large mixed groups so my husband and I enjoyed our day with just ourselves and Tom. All the sightseeing/visit stops are different in their own way so nothing was repetitive. The lunch platter at Poppies vineyard was superb - a "must-do", and the cheese and chocolate shops were irresistible. The 2nd wine tasting at Cellar Door was informative and not too long which is great. Cape Palliser Lighthouse felt like NZ's answer to Cape Horn (if you've been to Cape Horn you'll know what I mean!), and the Seal Colony and iconic Ngawi beach topped off the day. Finishing with fish and chips at the Lake Ferry Hotel brought this perfect day to an end. Thanks Tom for your great guiding and lovely company.

    Just the right amount of time (5 hours) covering the life essentials - cheese, chocolate and wine!

    Phil was a great guide, very informative and plenty of good banter between all parties onboard. Enjoyed all the stops, and it really was a good girls day out.

    (Top Tip - avoid the ghost pepper chili chocolate if you're offered it!)

    We've just had a fantastic day with Brian, our tour guide. He was very approachable and easy to talk with. Excellent knowledge of the area and went the extra mile to show off the Wellington region. He listened to our interests and changed plans to match our wants. We highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a more personal experience, rather than a large commercial operation. Brian is your guy...top notch fella.

    We had the best day. We are only in Wellington for 3 nights from Australia so decided that we wanted to see some countryside and not just the city. We were not disappointed. Our driver, Steve, was fantastic and very informative. We visited 3 amazing wineries and had a quick lunch at a brewery. We thoroughly enjoyed it. A very reliable company to book through.

    Jon provided us with an intimate food tour for just the 2 of us. He was easy to get on with, very knowledgeable about the food and hospitality in wellington. He personalized the tours for us and took us to multiple locations inside and outside the CBD, all the latest fads.
    Highly recommended as a relaxing day out, with a knowledgeable and friendly guide.

    As a mountain bike guide myself and my partner a wine guide, it was so nice to spend a day as a customer. We know what is expected of a guide and John fully exceeded our expectations.
    From start to finish John catered to all of our requests, and more.
    It was a terrible rainy day, but Johns vehicle was modern, warm and very comfortable.
    He is very polite, knowledgeable of the area and also the wines. Every winery we visited was perfect for our tastes and he even managed to get us a booking at a Ata Rangi wines at our request without a booking which was a great surprise.
    I felt the price was very reasonable considering the time John spent with us throughout the day, money very well spent.
    We cannot recommend his tours enough, 5 stars easy.

    Thanks John and look forward to seeing you down our way sometime so we can return the favour.

    We did a full day Foodie tour to Martinborough, with Tom. It was epic! Everything was wonderful, from the pickup at our airbnb, to the informative drive up, and all the visits to the various amazing local food and wine producers in the area. A honey producer, an olive orchard, a cottage winery, and a cheesery! He topped it off with a little bonus - a stop off at the (LOTR) Rivendell filming location on the way home! Highly Recommended!
