It is the great wine tour in Auckland. John is really know about wine. And tour is awesome.

Waterfalls and Wine Tasting with tour guide John is a sure bet. John is the perfect guide. Some guides talk the entire time and spoil the experience by doing so. John is friendly and laid-back. He talks just the right amount! He will guide you to some beautiful trails to see amazing New Zealand beauty, as well as to four or five wineries that are unique and interesting. His van held eight people which made for a lovely, casual day that we truly enjoyed and would do again in a heartbeat.

John gave us a great tour of the area north of the city. He was very informative and did a great job listening to what we wanted to see and do. We enjoyed the small amount of hiking to see the waterfalls and beaches, but he was also able to get some great views for the older couple who had booked with us and couldn't walk very well. The wineries we went to were very friendly and John was also able to give us extra information about the selections. We loved this tour and would do it again.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
We did the Matakana tour with John. It was a well constructed trip. Whilst the main interest was on wine the "side" trips to chocolate, honey and the giant kauri tree were most welcome. My guests were from Canada and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. The vineyards were well chosen and we were well looked after at all three - Brick Bay, Sculptuream and Heron's Flight. The latter was particularly good. John is extremely knowledgeable and provided an appropriate commentary during the trip. The pick up and drop off at our hotel was really helpful.
Did the half day tour of the west coast ,45 minutes from Auckland. Two wineries plus the gannet colony on the rocks by the beach. A thoroughly enjoyable day. Both wineries were excellent and John was a very informative host.

Auckland Wine Trail Tours exceeded our expectations. John went out of his way to customize our tour. We were on a Celebrity cruise. He already had an afternoon tour scheduled with other passengers on the ship. We wanted a full day so he picked us up in the morning, took us on a private excursion, then dropped us off at a great winery. We had a wine tasting and lunch while he picked up the other participants. During the afternoon we had a small group tour/tasting at three other wineries. This was one of our very favorite outings in New Zealand!
Fantastic day touring amazing natural wonders and enjoying some of the finest wineries! Lunch was scrumptious too! John was the perfect guide and made the experience both fun and memorable... a must do on your bucket list!
We went on a half day wine tour just outside of Auckland with John. He was a fabulous tour guide with lots of interesting information about the area and a great sense of humor. We were impressed with all three wineries that we visited (The Hunting Lodge was our most favorite), and our only regret was that we did not opt for the full day tour. We hope to return to NZ someday, and when we do, we will definitely do this tour again.
