Unfortunately we were not picked up at the arranged time but once they were told they quickly organised someone to pick us up. We had the driver to ourselves and our tour was then tailor made to our wine preferences. It was interesting and informative and a thoroughly pleasant experience.. The wineries were very accommodating and we shall do our... More

We enjoyed a great wine tour today. Our driver/tour guide Ross was brilliant and ensured we were welcomed at each winery and wines were explained prior to tasting. A thoroughly enjoyable experience, to be recommended.

Booked a tour that ended up getting canceled due to our late arrival into Picton from the ferry. The crew at Marlborough Wine Tours were SO accommodating and rebooked our trip for the next day without a hassle at all. Our tour guide, Graham, picked us up right on time and we were lucky enough to have him all to... More

We booked our exceptional extras tour 9 months prior to our visit to NZ. Marlborough Wine Tours were great with emails and confirming pick up arrangements etc and as it was New Year's Day I wanted to be sure we'd be doing something memorable whilst in Blenheim. We were collected by Carol who was a great guide and driver with... More

I did the "medium" version of their tour, which is from 10am-3pm, including a break for lunch. I didn't realise the wine region is so compact, so we got to visit more wineries than I expected in the time available. All the wineries' staff were friendly and happy to talk and answer questions, and there was never any pressure on... More

Greeted promptly at 8am, Matt our tour guide was both knowledgeable and adaptable, preferring Red wines, he catered our tour to those vineyards to our taste. Followed up by a tremendous marina-based lunch, we set forth on a scheduled Green Mussels Tour, where we experienced both the proper way to prepare mussels but only the perfect atmosphere.

This was the best of our Marlborugh NZ wine tasting. The Pinot Gris wines were excellent and the awards this small but passionate family run vineyard have earned are testament to the quality of bouquet and taste. The wine tasting experience and information from owner Julie was first class, the passion and quality of product were self evident . Only... More

We upgraded to the extras tour, which is a little pricey, but is a great experience with delicious wine and food pairings at some of the best wineries in Marlborough. Overall, a great experience.
