Great overview of the spirits of Hawkes Bay ! We visited a number of estates and sampled reds, whites and rose ( especially liked GWEN, the wine made for estate owner's wife). Stopped at a cool brewery/restaurant where we ate lamb burgers and enjoyed a sampling of six local beers. Wonderful day , well paced and most enjoyable!

A fascinating tour of Art Deco history following the disastrous earthquake in 1931 which changed the geography of Napier. Contrasted by tasting of local wines and beers. Very good value for money.
What a wonderful Company and wonderful Care was shown to make the day Extra Special

Overall Excellent! Small group with timely pickup and friendly guide. Husband/Wife team. Very knowledgeable long time resident with extension travel and tour experience. Saw everything mention on tour description and more. Included all expenses for wine and beer. All wineries very nice. Had extra time to see Napier. Was not rushed and no problem returning to ship in timely manner.

We had a wonderful time on this tour. The mix of sightseeing, visiting wineries and a brewery was perfect to give us a great day out as well as an excellent overview of Napier. The tour bus was very comfortable and our tour guide Maggie was so knowledgeable and interesting - she should have been a history teacher! Would highly recommend this tour and Hawkes Bay Scenic Tours.
This was a great tour the Mission Winery and area was beautiful and we enjoyed the wine and sent several bottles home. The other winery was fascinating and educational we enjoyed the wine wish we could have sent some home. Tasting the craft beer was great and we really enjoyed the fish and chips they were delicious.
Great informed tour guide.

After a mixup in tours (my name appeared on the wrong tour roster), the driver/guide made the arrangements to transfer me midway to the correct tour without much loss of information/sights. Informative guides, wonderful group of people on the tour. Nice mix of locations to visit for a full day, plenty of time to ask questions and view the sights, not too taxing. Was not too impressed with the wines we tasted; enjoyed the ale/cider house. Napier's art deco architecture is lovely, well worth seeing.
