Absolutely the best day trip in Cromwell

Absolutely the best day trip in Cromwell. You will be met by Bob and his beautiful 1988 Mercedes and driven around Cromwell in style and comfort to some totally amazing vineyards and sights. Bob is a knowledgeable tour guide who puts your needs and wishes at the top of his list. We enjoyed every moment and can warmly recommend this day trip with Cromwell Wine Tours. Many thanks Bob. You and the Merc were wonderful!!!


Highly Recommend

Bob was a stranger at 10:15am today and by the end of the day, we said goodbye to a very special man and friend. So comfortable from seeing our chariot coming around the corner, to Bob jumping out of the vehicle and offering a strong handshake made with eye contact, and we knew we were in for a great day. Our tour started with our drive from Q’town to Cromwell getting to know each other and the information Bob shared about the district along the way. Each winery Bob had chosen was exceptional and Stoaker Room was simply the best with amazing food to enhance the wines offered. Our chariot was like travelling back in time but with all the modern comforts. My husband and I would highly recommend Cromwell Classic Car Wine Tours.

Thank you

Cromwell Classic Car Wine Tours thank you for such an enjoyable fun day out. Great way to spend the day being toured round in a beautiful Mercedes Benz (very Mrs Bouquet like) visited 4 very different but cool wineries, fabulous lunch and the great company of Bob Hewitt. 100% recommend, learnt lots more about wine today and we now enjoy wines we didn't think we liked! Bob is such a great guy. Check out the website

A real highlight of our holiday

I would like to give our recommendation for Classic Car Wine Tours in Cromwell. My wife and myself booked a day tour with Bob and it was a real highlight of our holiday in New Zealand. The wine, wine tastings, views and days itinerary were all excellent. Not to give too much away but the last stop was at very special cocktail bar and what a great finish to a very entertaining day in Cromwell. Thanks Bob and we do plan to visit again with a few more friends to share the day.
