Hi There

I would just like to pass on our thanks to John our Tour Guide.

What a great day we had from our Wine tasting, to his well run tour of Napier itself.

His knowledge of wine and his entertaining Wit really made us feel comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Thank you again John for making our trip so special and enjoyable.

We arrived in Napier onboard a cruise ship and spent the day touring with John of Hawkes Bay Scenic Tours. He was a great guide with an encyclopedic knowledge of Napier and surrounding area as well as the art deco style which dominates the town.

After a scenic drive around the peninsula we had a personal motorcycle escort to the top of a "mountain" for some great photo ops. We drove back to Napier and toured around the place with John pointing out various features that define the town's style.

We then had some time to wander around enjoying the architecture and in some cases doing a little shopping before we were returned to the ship. Highly recommend this company.

Thank you John for a wonderful day!

Dear John,

A few weeks ago me and a few others took an amazing tour with you from the Explorer of the Seas. I was totally impressed with one of the scenes during our trip and asked if you could email a high quality copy of the picture you have on your post card. It is the one with the mountain and river flowing near it. The picture I took from my iPhone was not pixilated enough for me to blow up to poster size. Thanks in advance for your help with this request.

Sincerely

Hello John

Rona and her friend Val came in this morning and told me how much they enjoyed the tour with you yesterday.
They were thrilled that they learnt a lot, that you took your time and the tour was longer than planned.
They were full of praise for your excellent tour and were happy that they decided to join you.
They appreciated the pick up from their home as well

Sorry John, have been snogged under at work since we’ve been back…

But I would like to take time now to say how much we appreciated what you and Margaret did for us. You made a day out a blast and managed to keep our diverse age group very satisfied and entertained the whole day.
We must admit that you both were very knowledgeable about every winery that we visited, to the point I preferred to hang back with you from the tour guide and listen to what you had to say. Before this trip, I didn’t really
appreciate the true history and hard work that goes into that lovely bottle of wine that I just purchased, opened and drunk until your tour. I also never really knew the history of Hawkes Bay area, but with the little educational booklets provided in the car and the knowledge you two shared along our trip was truly an eye opener. Also I would like to say thank you for all the little extra things you did for us like, change the tour around to suit or group,
the lovely photos of us and most of all, letting our group cruise at there leisure without hurrying us. Also thank you for putting up with our sometimes rowdy group and having a joke with us, that was really neat you two got in on our bantering with us.

I have already referred the both of you to all our friends and I will defiantly be back in your lovely town again.

Thanks again,

Dear John,

Thank you so much for such a wonderful day and for the beautiful photographs. You really do have a talent for photography. We had the most lovely day and we haven't stopped talking about it since. We enjoyed our delicious bottle of 'Northern' savvy this evening with dinner and it was divine.

We will be sure to recommend your tour on Trip Advisor and to everyone we meet along our travels.

Thank you again,
If you ever happen to travel to England again, we will be more than happy to give you a tour of our favourite eateries and English pubs.

Kindest regards,

Dear John,

Just a brief note to thank you for the wonderful trip you provided for my family and myself in Napier last week.

I had a wonderful trip to New Zealand and Napier was indeed the highlight.

This was in no small way due to you and the experience you provided.

Your time ,patience, information and general sense of humour gave us all a great days entertainment.

We saw the very best of Napier and in was indeed an unforgettable experience.

Once again many thanks.
