Great wine tour with a very knowledgeable guide, Helen, who is a former grape grower and so knows a lot about wine production and the local wine industry. We did a full day tour and it was just us (2) for the morning, picking up another 5 after lunch. We visited 7 wineries in total, including ones covering our specific... More

We only had a couple of days in Blenheim and selected the wine tour with Na Clachan Wine Tours. It was a great choice. Helen our guide was very knowledgeable about wine as well as the entire area. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and would highly recommend the tour.

We were recommended this trip by the i-SITE in Blenheim. We were picked up by our guide Helen at our motel in a minibus and joined by a group of 8 Aussies from another hotel. We were given the option of choosing any wineries we particularly wanted to visit, but we were happy to go along with the 'Boutique' wineries... More

Helen runs the Na Clachan tours and we have been fortunate over the last few years to have enjoyed three tours throughout the Marlborough region when we've had overseas guests. She is extremely knowledgeable, flexible, great fun and informative. but even better, very good value for money. There is a lot of competition for drivers and guides and tours to... More

Our family group had a really great time, with Helen kickstarting the afternoon with a delicious lunch at Scott's Winery - preceded by the first of several leisurely tastings . Helen was knowledgeable and interesting yet relaxed as we sampled our way through the best that 'the top of the south ' can produce . We all loved all the... More

We took the afternoon tour with Helen as our guide. Helen was great, very friendly and knowledgeable about wines. She made the tour interesting and fun and provided heaps of information on winemaking in the region. We started the tour with a wine tasting and lunch at Rockferry both were excellent and to be recommended. This was followed by several... More

We had a great afternoon tour and this is one of our high lights of our 5 week trip around New Zealand. Our guide was Helen who was so knowledgeable about the area, the many different wines, the growing and making of the local wines. Helen wanted to demystify wine tasting and helped us to find the wines we really... More

We really lucked into this tour. Our cruise ship added Picton due to weather and we had no idea what we were going to do at this port. Fortunately, we were directed to Helen at the information center. She was a delightful tour guide and Marlborough turned out to be our favorite wine region in New Zealand. She took us... More

This is a review of the half day wine tour that we did in January 2014. As newbies to wine tasting we had very little knowledge of the wines produced in the region and how they were made. This tour gave us a very good overview of the wines in the region. Helen, the tour guide, and the staff at... More
