Giles takes small groups (Max 6) on tours around Christchurch and Canterbury.

Wine tours are his specialty and the Waipara Wine Experience has garnered hundreds of positive reviews since it started in 2016.

The main difference between the WWT and Giles Guided Tours is that the GGT is not a prepackaged tour which means it can be tailored to your needs.



A Giles Guided Tour is a private tour for up to 6 people. It includes all transport, including pick up and drop off in Christchurch but not the cost of your wine tastings or lunch. This means we can either use the same itinerary as the Wiapara Wine Experience or change it up, depending on your circumstances and preferences.
