As things turned out we were the only couple on our day trip through the wineries in Marlborough. Our driver/guide, Jonathan, was prompt picking us up from our motel in Picton and was very good giving us lots of information on the history of the area as well as the wineries. We had some excellent tastings along the way, in... More

If you are booking via email just make sure they have the correct number of people in your party. Despite booking for 7 they had us down as 2 pax, hence not all of our party got to do the tour as there was not enough room in the van. Our guide and driver for the tour, Kevin, was a... More

A stunning day of wine and food pairings. We visited six or seven wineries, all with very nice wines for tasting. Lunch was at Hans Herzog in their bistro and was delicious along with the accompanying wines. A beautiful day in a beautiful country with amazing wines and wonderful people.

Our guide Chris picked us up from our hotel promptly and then took us on the fantastic 'exceptional extras' tour of Marlborough wineries. This included 5-6 tastings at each location as well as matched wines and food at Giesen Cellar Door, and a 3 course lunch with matched wines at the Hans Herzog Estate. A full day's wine tasting complemented... More

Chris picked my partner and me up at the hotel promptly and took us on a great tour of 6 wineries, thoroughly explaining the wines/wineries of the region and paying close attention to our likes and dislikes. He prides himself on providing a customized tour and did just that - we said we liked sparkling wines, so we stopped off... More

Chris was our tour guide for the day. We were only 4 (2 adult couples) from the U.S. Chris was very attentive to our interests and customized our day accordingly. He is a walking wine encyclopedia! Very insightful and personable. We visited approx. 8 wineries during our day, plus a leisurely lunch at one of our stops. Lunch was extra... More

We visited 10 wineries (!) in an all day tour that exposed us to the full range of wines in Marlborough, with a few from other parts of New Zealand thrown in. Our host, Chris, was very knowledgeable and designed the tour after getting input from us on where we wanted to go.

Chris our driver and guide was extremely knowledgeable about all the wine and wineries which was really interesting. We went to 10 wineries in total all at a leisurely... More

What a fantastic time we had - low season - only couple on the tour and Kevin was full of information for us. We got to see what we wanted and more under the wonderful guidance of Kevin. My husband got edcuated about the types of wine out there and even fell in love with Reislings. Thanks Marlborough Wine Tours... More

We booked a medium tour and as it was low season we were the only two on the tour. Thankfully this didn't mean increased pressure to buy bottles at the cellar door, something we really appreciated. This being said, they do offer a great service to ship wine for you! We had packed a picnic lunch with us and our... More
