We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Hamish in the Hawke's Bay wine region. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and flexible. His recommendations were spot-on, and he made a point to take the most scenic routes and stop where we could take a few pictures. I would absolutely book with him again.

We visited a mix of tiny, small, and large producers and had great service at all of them - they all... More

I just got back from a lovely day out in the vineyards. Hamish, our driver, was amazing. You get picked up from your hotel and while he drives you to the different vineyards he talks about the area and very interesting things around the wines and grapes!

We booked a full day tour. We had a great time, and visited 5 wineries. Our guide, Rob, was friendly and knowledgeable. The only thing we were disappointed in, is that even though we were only 2 in the morning (6 others joined us for the afternoon tour), we only went to 1 more winery than the others. We were... More

Ian was our driver and guide. He was very personable and knowledgeable. We visited 4 wineries and had a tour of Napier. Good value for the money. We paid $110 NZ per hour for 4 of us. It included all of the tastings. We can't say enough good things about Ian and Prinsy's tours.
