Ian was our driver and guide. He was very personable and knowledgeable. We visited 4 wineries and had a tour of Napier. Good value for the money. We paid $110 NZ per hour for 4 of us. It included all of the tastings. We can't say enough good things about Ian and Prinsy's tours.

This was out 3rd wine tasting tour with Prinsy's. We had Ian as our guide this time and he made the day fun, enjoyable and educational. We went to some different Wineries this time, but even if we had gone to the same ones as last visit it would have been good. Hamish's tours are a fun day out in... More

We spent the full day with Rob, our guide and wine area expert. Absolutely lovely. We visited 6 wineries, from secret gems to international champions League, and we loved all of them.

I went on this tour as a total novice to wines and Hamish was an excellent guide who knew all about wines from the growing of the grapes to the tasting of the wine. He was easy to chat to and ask questions and he showed me the finer art of wine tasting and I certainly have a better palette... More

Most enjoyable half day tour, small group of seven strangers who through the easy manner and commentary of our guide Kerry got on famously at the end of the day.
