I will always try to accommodate a lunch stop if requested and of course if time allows. A winery lunch takes up to an hour, so on shorter tours and particularly combination tours, it is not always possible to stop for lunch in order to...More

We had a full day wine tour with Nick and it was excellent. He also put a brewery in there for the non-wine drinkers in our group. We found him very friendly, helpful, he also knew a lot of history. Would definitely recommend him.

My wife and I arrive on May 17th from 8am to 4pm on Oceania lines, Insignia. We have a tour party of four right now, could be larger once we board ship. I'd like a wine tour to include a nice winery luncheon (our own expense if a pricey place). as a professional wine educator in the US, I would like quality wineries including Te Mata, Craggy Range(I have made a special appt there as they close on Tuesdays)', Clearfield, Esk Valley, etc. as possible within our time limits.Some sightseeing fine, but no brewery please, good wines to be the focus. Others with me have at least moderate wine experience,plus my wife and I have visited at Napier, Havelock area several years ago. please send your plan for four people, another if more, six but not eight people. We will board ship this coming Monday,May 9th and expect to find other possible tour partners.I am doing wine tours also at Hobart, Tasmania and Picton port calls prior to Napier. thank you for any possible assistance and booking.
