What a wonderful wine tour we had. We saw and tasted and purchased from 3 vineyards in the Paihia region. From largest to the boutique vineyards so informative and interesting we all enjoyed the day and we made good friends. We will definitely be back. Thanks Ken so much fun.
Beautiful and Tranquil Location

Worth the visit. The outside surroundings are so peaceful and beautiful, the location is tranquil and quiet. We have been to Waitomo but still enjoyed this less commercial location. The walkway/boardwalk inside is in good condition and the guide was knowledgeable and easygoing.

We were collecting in the centre of Paihia by our guide in a clean, well maintained mini bus. He was informative and a safe driver. He took us to three vineyards and didn't make us feel rushed. The first vineyard was Marsdens where we sat in a beautiful garden and enjoyed a marvellous food platter, along with very good wines with generous servings for both. The food was great for meat eaters and vegetarians. The second vineyard was the Fat Pig, this was a lovely place, small but lots going on. Our host was interesting, telling us about the wide range of things they grow, as well as the grapes and how they adapt their wines to the changing climate. We finished at a vineyard who introduced limoncello to NZ it was lovely.
Love those Glow Worms!

A fantastic experience from beginning to end! The glow worm caves were just amazing. Beautiful! Better than advertised. The guide had so much Information on the caves, the worms and their lifecycle. The Hundertwasser toilets and the town of Kawakawa were so cool and funky. Loved the walk through the rainforest. So tranquil, green and old, especially the Kaura trees. We highly recommend Mullarky Tours and this excursion. Viator Review
