Why Choose Day Out for Your Wine Tasting or Scenic Tour?
Welcome to Day Out, I hope you like what you have found and will select us for your tour experience.
We aim to offer a better tour experience using our luxury European vehicles, doing tours that are different to the norm. Our driver guides are all local and are passionate about the region in which they live, and keen to share that with you.
A relatively new tour business to the region, we want to offer a better experience. Our reviews have been excellent and all our guests have left us well pleased with their Day Out experience.
Our Exclusive Private tours are for those who seek a personal experience and the range of tours we offer these guests cover a variety of amazing experiences. The luxurious, safe and capable BMW X5 ensures we can go anywhere there is at least a track, far beyond the limits of the average rental vehicle. Our tours visit some places even Nelsonians are unaware of.
Our Luxury Group tours are for those who enjoy mixing it up with other guests, making new friends and sharing the experiences of the day as the tour progresses. The tours listed have been found to be the most popular, normally filling the vehicle. For the group tours we use a luxury Mercedes Benz minibus, with a maximum of six seats, ensuring small and friendly groups rather than a crowd.
The ‘Top of the South’, as it is colloquially known, is beautiful part of the world, rich in superb vineyards, fruit orchards and hop fields, exporting award winning products around the world.
Surrounded by three outstanding National Parks, the Nelson region is New Zealand’s fourth largest producer of wine, of which many are highly awarded; is the centre for New Zealand’s hop growing attracting many craft brewers; and as a region has attracted many artisans who have brought their international skills in cooking, art, sculpture, pottery, art glass to the region, ensuring a rich and abundant diversity to be enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
All this and Nelson enjoys more days of sunshine than anywhere else in New Zealand, typically over 300 days a year!
We look forward to welcoming you on one of our tours, whether it is to enjoy superb wine tasting at one of our carefully selected cellar doors, enjoying some excellent beer tasting at some of our many craft breweries, or going deep into one of our fabulous National Parks to explore the forest paths, and discover the bird and plant life there.
We guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Finally, we are Nelson’s first tour company to be certified as a CarbonZero business, something of which we are very proud. We recover all our emissions and endeavour to care for our world as much as possibly can.
