Arriving in Martinborough via the Northern (Kiwi) Railroad, we were met by a very pleasant Grandmother and her trusty companion, her Grandson. It truly was a beautiful warm, sunny day and the Van was full of vintage Wine Tasters. All the stops were at Boutique Wineries, Muirlea Rise, and Murdoch James.

A perfect day, from our pickup at the train, to fun wineries, to delicious lunch. The guide was friendly and efficient, even finding another winery when the scheduled one was unexpectedly closed. Highly recommended.

My spouse and I had a great experience on March 27, 2015 during our tour of several Martinborough wineries. Our host, tour guide, shuttle bus driver extraordinaire, Naomi, was fabulous! Her knowledge of the region and of its agricultural history set the stage for a great educational experience. We were a small group from the US, Australia and Singapore. We... More

The instructions provided by tranzit tour were clear and my husband and I managed to get on the train ride from Wellington Railway to Featherstone with ease.

My mother and I were lucky to join a small group led by a very professional and personable guide Naomi. Naomi was heaps of fun and definitely bumped up the value of the overall experience. No complaints at all, however, we would have preferred to have had lunch at one of the vineyards. While the food was great at Villa... More

Hope this is the correct site. Train ride from Wellington to Featherston was lovely. Small bus was ok to go around wineries. Disappointed only went to 4 wineries, and 3 of them were nearly in walking distance of each other, so felt for the day didn't really experience the area.

We had a great day trip to Martinborough. We learnt a lot more about wines and the trip was both relaxing and intoxicating! We were not very good at drinking so didn't drink much. But there were others on the trip with us who totally enjoyed glasses of drink at each of the wineries.
