Had the most wonderful trip with our host T to some lovely wineries. He had great jokes, footy banter and suggestions for the day. T was flexible and accomodating. Would highly recommend this company.

Waiting to be picked up in Queenstown, and watching other tour operators rush people onto buses and speed off did nothing to boost my expectation of this tour. Then we met Lance, who warmly greeted us and made us feel relaxed, well it just got better and better! Lance is a very experienced driver who entertained us as well as gave loads of local knowledge about the wineries we were visiting, was very accommodating to our timetable ( to get to Gibbston for lunch), and gave us a ton of time to enjoy really great wines of the region. My good friend who had organised the itinerary, firstly had us delivered to Nockies, which in my opinion was one of the best wineries we visited this day. Then Gibbston Wines for lunch, Kinross was next followed by Brennan wines. Such a great day to go wine tasting!
Well done Wine Hopper and a special thankyou to Lance for putting up with us !!

This is the only way to tour wine country from my perspective! The tour feels customized and personal as you are allowed to pick the wineries you wish to visit among many options available. You just let the driver know where you want to be dropped off, and simply call to be picked up when you are ready so you can stay as long as you like at a winery or as short a time as you desire! The van is comfortable, well maintained and clean and the driver is friendly, knowledgeable and goes out of his way to make the tour meaningful. For example, we passed a lake with trees that had beautiful fall colors and I remarked on what a wonderful picture it would make and he offered to stop there so I could take a photo! The tour group is kept small so when you hop back on the bus you can compare notes with other passengers and by the end of the day, have made new friends! It was a fantastic, fun and wonderful experience which I highly, highly recommend!!!

"𝐜𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐳𝐞𝐝 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥" 🥰 Reviews like yours just delight us, because way back when we started it was key to us to "make wine personal" so that each & every person can savour, enjoy & take something from their own experience, that was relatable and fun. Thank you so much for you amazing review, it means a lot to all of us here 💞

We had the pleasure of touring on the Wine Hopper Bus with Lance (driver) yesterday. We joined two other couples from NZ and enjoyed 4 wineries, tastings and lunch. The bus was clean and very comfortable and Lance provided outstanding commentary with amazing knowledge not only of the wines and the Otago region, but much of the history of the local area. The current roadworks around Queenstown created traffic issues, but with his local knowledge of the roads, Lance was able to bypass all of the traffic jams and deliver us back into Queenstown safely and in a timely way. We can highly recommend this wine tour with the leisurely nature and flexibility of the tour. Thank you Lance and happy retirement!! - Peter & Elaine - Mornington Peninsula , Victoria, Australia
