Kerry was wonderful on our day out with Bubbly Grape Wine Tours. If you want a fun filled day, experiencing some great wineries in Marlborough, this is the tour for you. Kerry is so friendly, but also has a wide knowledge of the local vineyards so makes the tour come alive with her commentary. Very comfortable van to travel in... More

We booked the half day tour and we had a great day! Kerry was knowledgable, friendly and accommodating. She asked us which wineries we wanted to visit and she tailored the day to what we wanted to do. We visited four wineries and the Makana chocolate factory. Kerry obviously loves what she does and it shows. The wines were delicious... More

Couldn't have imagined a more pleasant experience. Kerry was our tour guide and, despite having done over 2000 wine tours, her fresh and enthusiastic approach made for an enjoyable tour. We were offered to select the wineries we wanted to visit and knowing only two in Marlborough Kerry was able to suggest an exemplary range from large scale to boutique... More

We wanted a laid back and relaxed tour of the local wineries around Marlborough and that's exactly what Kerry delivered! She picked us up from our holiday park and from there we, along with another couple, visited 4 wineries and a chocolate shop with a stop for lunch. Excellent! And great value!

The afternoon started with our host, Kerry, picking my wife and I up from our sons residential address. Right from the start we were made to feel welcome and throughout the afternoons wine tasting activities, Kerry went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable and looked after by the wineries. Kerry was excellent at catering to every ones... More

Thanks guys for the great review. We had a wonderful time yesterday with you being able to taste and try everything, including the coffee liqueur, yum. And we found some new wines to add to your list of likes. An overcast day didn't stop us! Take care and come back and visit again. :-) More

We organised a full day tour with Kerry after reading the awesome reviews on tripadvisor and we certainly weren't disappointed. She was super friendly and very knowledgeable about wine and the area. The tour was very flexible and lucky for us we were paired with a friendly couple from america with similar tastes. She also went above and beyond by... More

Thankyou for the wonderful review. It was my pleasure taking you on a great tour and it is great when you get the days that everyone has similar tastes. Not always the case, but it doesn't matter because Marlborough has such a vast range of wine varieties here. Every tour we do includes any of a number of different wines.... More

Kerry is such a friendly and charming hostess that I instantly felt like it was a just a wonderful day out with a friend. Her intimate knowledge of the area, the people, the wineries and food gives you a local perspective that simply can't be matched by other tours. We even had a couple of detours for mulled wine and...

Thank you for your great review. You have to make the most of the area so why not try some Mulled Wine. It is cold enough, ha ha. If I could have tasted with you I would (the whole alcohol, driving thing doesn't mix!), however it was like being around a friend. We want everyone to feel like they have... More
