Joe was an amazing host, with a great knowledge of the area and personality. We really enjoyed his tour and all of the boutique wineries we got to visit. Would highly recommend for anyone new and experienced to the Central Otago region, thanks Joe!

Thank you for our welcome to N.Z Joe, this has set such a beautiful tone for our trip this week. Both the children and adults came away with a deeper appreciation of your culture and are already wearing the carvings you bestowed upon them. We highly recommend this experience for anyone traveling to this magical part of the world.
