A great tour of the New Zealand Marlborough wine region. Our driver Carol was talkative, knowledgable, personable & patient. There are over 100 wineries in this area & we visited 7 to get a good taste cross section. White wines are good, Pinot noirs are OK & the other reds are unremarkable. Good food & coffee available at some wineries.... More

We enjoyed a morning‘s wine tour with Carol who was an excellent and caring guide. She tried to cater for everyone‘s palate and we were delighted she was able to include a winery that we particularly wanted to visit. In a short time we were able to visit four wineries and our only regret was that we did not have... More

We decide to taste a few kind of Marlborough wines and we took a hole day trip. It was a expert guide and drvier which took care of us. We didn't know too much about wineries and now we can say much more about it. It seems too much for one day to visit 6 places and teast 4-6 wines... More

Fabulous day with Kevin as our driver and his grandson Mitchell. We had a wonderful experience on the 3 hour cruise with Dell on the Jena, the lunch at Slip Inn at Havelock was enjoyable and has a lovely outlook over the marina. Kevin and Dell both provided good information on the region and were extremely hospitable. The 30 minute... More

Carol picked us up at our holiday park in Blenheim at 1 PM for a half-day tour of wineries in the Marlborough area. She was courteous, knowledgeable, and very friendly. As we did not arrive in Blenheim until noon, we could not participate in the standard all-day tour that is offered. As a result, we joined Carol's all-day tour mid-stream.... More

This was a well paced professional tour, full of interesting information, delivered in a casual and friendly mode. Great for the wine buff and the novice. The tour was personalised to our taste needs, and we had a delicious lunch in a fabulous venue. All up, this was a great day and I would highly recommend this tour.

We signed up for the all day tour. Carol picked us up in Picton. She asked about our taste so she could provide the best wineries for us. She took us to several lovely wineries. We had a good time with Carol and other people on the tour. We visited 7 places and had a lovely lunch at Allen Scott... More
