Amazing day

We had the best time with Angus, he’s a true wine expert, entertainer and an all round awesome guy. You can tell he is truly passionate about wine and what he does. A relaxing day in the sun at beautiful wineries, drinking excellent wine - what’s not to love!

Great day out

Highly recommend this to anyone looking to get out to the wineries. Andrew was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and all the wineries. A very relaxing way to experience the wineries, where you can choose which ones you want to visit and with no set bus pick up time you can be as flexible as you want, if you wish to stay longer where you are etc. We will definitely be back on the tour next time we're in Queenstown. Cheers, James and Jo.
