TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the excellent rating Gillian - it was absolutely my pleasure to show you and the girls a little of Hawkes Bay today - we had some lovely sunshine too! Paul
This is definitely the tour for those that just want a personal and relaxed outing with a true local. Paul was very accomodating and took us to some great spots and sights around town. With wine tasting, chocolate factory and lunch stop, it was a great day for all of us. ThAnkyou.

We had a terrific day. Paul was an excellent guide, very eloquent and knowledgeable. The museum is more of an eclectic collection but very interesting. We were lucky enough to have Ian Hope, the owner show us around, he is obviously passionate about his cars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the rating, Jill - much appreciated.

Wow we had a wonderful tour in Napier. The drive up to Te Mata Peak was wonderful. It was a clear day so the panoramic views were outstanding. We were touring on a Saturday so Paul was able to arrange a special winery for a fantastic tasting. Needless to say my husband a wine snob had a fun time talking wine!!! Then we stopped at Silky Oak Chocolates we had a fun tasting. the processing part was not open because it was Saturday. Still bought some great chocolate. photos on the peak turned out great
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jane for that lovely feedback. It was an absolute pleasure for me to meet you and the family and I'm delighted you enjoyed our time together. Do get in touch if your travels bring you to Napier again some day.
An absolutely delightful few hours. Paul is knowledgeable, professional, and he and Queenie are great fun with whom/which to see Napier. Thanks, too, for the great weather, Paul. Hoping to see you again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James & Leslie Many thanks for the lovely feedback - it was an absolute pleasure to meet you both and to show you around beautiful Napier. Thank you so much for booking with me - I would love to see you again next time. Regards, Paul PS and by the way, Mum did wave to you as the ship was leaving the Port of Napier!
such a fun day - we spoke to MANY passengers who wished they were going on our tour, rather than the Winery tour they choose. The only downside was we couldn't take as many of the wonderful treats as we wanted, as our cruise ship was being VERY vocal about not bringing food back (Australia's biodiversity laws), grateful for Honeyland shipping
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for the feedback, Joanne - I'm very pleased that you enjoyed the tour so much; thanks again for booking with me.
