The Matakana Scenic Coastal Getaway was fabulous. My husband and I did a lot of tours while in Australia and New Zealand and this was by far the best. We visited a cheese factory where we tasted fabulous cheese then wine tasting and lunch at a cute boutique winery. Then on to

Thanks so much for your wonderful review of the Matakana Scenic Wine Tour. This is definitely one of the most popular tours because of the inclusion that don't include wine, like the cheese tasting and chocolate tasting. The short stop into the Morris and James Ceramic factory is always a plus with many clinets buying a small keepsake to take home. The lunch is always exceptional at Plume, the scenery magnificent and of course the wine very tasty. Please feel free to follow NZWINEPRO™ on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I post interesting pictures and information about things I come across on my tours. I thoroughly enjoyed your company. Stay in touch. Thanks again for choosing NZWINEPRO™ Best regards - John McFarlane

I'm pretty sure I know which group you were (with Nola) but I simply don't know your name because I have taken several groups recently to Matakana. Anyway I'm delighted you enjoyed your tour and that Freda and the crew at Plume gave you a great wine and food experience. Thanks for your great praise around my guiding. I truly believe it's my best calling and i'm looking forward to seeing you next time. Please feel free to follow my business on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Wow, I'm delighted this was your favourite excursion because this is one of my favourite wine tour destinations. Matakana has wine and cheese and chocolate and honey and pottery and beer and so much beautiful coastal scenery to see. I'm also thrilled you loved the fabulous lunch. I choose the best venues or cuisine because I spent a large part of my life in hotels and restaurants eventually owning my own.

More than just a wine tour. Doesn't matter if you have limited knowledge of wine or are a wine connoisseur, John has the ability to relate to all types. Not only does John have great knowledge and relationship with local wine producers, but he also has an obvious love and

Hi Ben, Thanks for your amazing review. I'm so happy you enjoyed your tour and I'm sorry I lost my voice as the day went on. It was a pleasure to take you and Peter to Babich Wines and then Matakana after that. A nd I hope the beers at Brothers finished off day well. I hope you'll like the NZWINEPRO™ Facebook page to stay in touch, or you can follow my business on Twitter or Instagram where I post interesting information about tours, wine, cuisine and things of interest I find around Auckland and New Zealand.
