Carol picked us up from our hotel in Blenheim & drove us out to Havelock for our boat trip on the Marlborough Sounds. There had been some miscommunication & there wasn't a boat available, so Carol suggested we go for a drive along the Queen Charlotte Drive instead. I was sick & it was very cold & cloudy, so the...

Carol picked up my daughter, wife and at our hotel in Picton and drove us around to four wineries. We were the only ones on this tour and got a personalized tour with options as to which wineries to visit. Each of the wineries were more than generous on their tastings and the food at the Geisen winery was some... More

WOW! Our day started with the enthusiastic Matt - our lovely young tour guide - picking us up from our accommodation in Picton, and then we were off to pick up another couple in Blenheim and then straight to Cloudy Bay winery - which was unbelievable! Sipping wine at 10.30am in the morning has never been more civilized :) Then... More

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

If you enjoy New Zealand wines then this is the place to come and this is the company to show you around. Arriving in Picton by cruise ship we were met by Andy in an immaculate Mercedes S class and we had a great day visiting the wineries that we try so hard to support back in the UK! The... 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

Great value for money tour. Carol was great , so knowledgeable, friendly and great fun. The 5 hours flew past but was enough. After 2 visits of tasting at Seresin (organic) and Forrest both good we had a great lunch and tasting at Wairau River ( excellent venue ). Then to keep topped up sampled 3 very fine "champagne" at...

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
