    We were treated to a personalised tour of the Hawkes Bay wineries, as Greg pointed out key sights on the tour and even played our favourite song to dance along to in the van! We tasted some amazing wines, all the wineries were well prepared for our visit and a cheese platter was provided, as well as stops to buy fresh organic fruit and local ice cream along the way. An ultimate enjoyment day.

    We had a really good time with the wine tour. Greg was an excellent guide and showed us some great vineyards. He had some great local knowledge and it was nice to relax with some cheese and wine at the half way point with him and the other guests. Each of the vineyards were welcoming and gave us some great wines to try. Great day and would really recommend it for anyone else in Hawkes Bay.

    A very nice wine tour. Everything went smoothly. Four different vineyards was just enough to taste the difference. I will definitely recommend this tour to everyone.

    We visited 4 wineries and tasted many varieties of wines, some that I hadn't heard of before. Greg was easygoing and friendly. The group was nice and small so it was easy to chat and socialise for a solo traveller like me. Overall a good experience.

    I spent a very enjoyable day on a Grape Escape wine tour: 6 vineyards, including a leisurely lunch stop. Booking was easy and included a pick up/drop off in Napier. Greg was a good host and driver and knowledgable about the wines and area. I particularly appreciated the small party size, 9 in total, as the group was friendly and inclusive which is a bonus as a single traveler ! Overall I would definitely recommend Grape Escape to anyone interested in enjoying a wine trip in the Hawkes Bay region.

    We were collected very promptly from our hotel We were a small group of 8 people driven by Greg who is a very informative leader. He was keen to inform and answer any questions. An excellent tour of 4 family run vineyards, all producing an excellent selection of wines. The hosts at the vineyards were all very friendly and there was no pressure to buy. Half way through we stopped for a convivial snack of delicious cheeses and crackers. Just what was needed after the wine! All in all a great afternoon - a small group of like minded people with a great tour director! Thank you.

    Collected from our Napier hotel at midday, and spent the next five hours on the most informative, and fun filled winery tour to be found in the Hakes Bay. They have excellent choice of wineries, very generous tastings and sampling at the chosen cellar doors. It is hugely recommended to any wine lover.
