What people are saying about Otago

The Wine Hopper was a super friendly and personalised experience. Ian was an amazing tour guide who had great knowledge of the region and even better winery recommendations. The scenery and destinations are second to none. Will definitely be doing this tour again next time I’m in Queenstown!

Lance provided us with a new approach to the age old problem… wine tasting and driving. We had a great day, went to places we didn’t know about, the best platter of food at Kinross and first class transport.

Had a great experience. Lance was knowledgeable and friendly. He made the trip worth it for us. Thanks Lance.

Deb ( I think that's her name) is so accommodating, helpful and upbeat - she's a perfect driver.

We had a great day and the drivers were really friendly.
