Awesome way to spend an afternoon

We had a really enjoyable time during the weekend visiting a couple of the great wineries out in West Auckland. John was a very welcoming and easygoing yet experienced host, really easy to talk to, leading to a comfortable and educational experience. The plans for the day were also flexible - we were able to choose which places we wanted to visit after a brief introduction of each. As mentioned by the previous review, it was clear John was very well-versed in the local wines and had good relationships with all of the wineries, so I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone else!

Great afternoon out

We had a great afternoon out with John touring vineyards and visiting the gannet colony. John was very knowledgeable about the birds and knew the vineyards, their wines and processes well. He went out of his way to make sure the day was fun and enjoyable and we will definitely try and arrange another day out with him in the future.
