We had an half-day tour combining city and winery with A1tours4U. Nick picked us up in his mini van at our hotel at the appointed time. Nick is very knowledgeable about everything in Napier. He pointed out to us many of the art deco building accompanied by the comprehensive information on their history. We also managed to stop at the... More

I booked for an afternoon tour with a1tours4u because we had done our first wine tour with Mike on our honeymoon 5 years ago - so nostalgia dictated we went back to the same place on our anniversary weekend. When I contacted them to arrange this, I got an email back from Nick saying that he was now running the... 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.

I booked this tour some months before our cruise to New Zealand. I had explained to Nick that we were primarily interested in a wine tour but didn't want to pay for a private tour so we were happy to do his standard tour. This was a fairly comprehensive one which included the Art Deco history of Napier, the views... More

We chose this tour as it seemed to be more personal than others in the area - And it was exactly that. Nick has such a good knowledge of all of Napier and its surrounding area, he pointed out so many different places of interest, and as it was so personall, it allowed us to ask questions along the way....

We went on a wine tour with Nick last month, what a great day! We visited half a dozen different wineries for tastings and a look around, really enjoyed each one. Nick certainly knows his subject very well and because he only does small groups it was a really personal experience and lots of fun. Highly recommended!

We did the full day winery tour, it was amazing. Nick was a great host, he took us to some of the best wineries as well as local attractions such as bluff hill. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a good day out and a friendly host!
