We had great communication with the tour provider before the trip, facilitating our pick up. The guide was prompt and accommodating, providing a rich tour experience by highlighting areas of interest on the way to the wineries and engaging in lively conversation throughout. He was able to provide information about the area, history and was clearly well acquainted with the local wineries and their offerings.

I really enjoyed the this half day tour of the Martinborough wineries. The group was small, only 8 of us altogether, which made the experience very personal and unique. Philip was a great guide with extensive knowledge of not just the wines and region but also the local history, and generally just a lovely and friendly person.

We had a half day in Wellington, and were keen to visit Martinborough as it was recommended by friends. We made a last minute decision and chose the 5 hour tour as it was convenient. We had an excellent host in Phil Mildenhall, who provided us an excellent overview of the wine makers in Martinborough, arranged the wine tasting and tour. Phil was extremely pleasant and friendly and this made the trip truly worthwhile.
