My husband and I booked a wine tour over the internet with Marlborough Wine Tours and were slightly unsure of what to expect and what we would get. What we got, was a superb day out from an incredibly knowledgeable, informative and professional guide by the name of Carol. Carol introduced herself and then asked us where we wanted to... More

Carol collected us and took us on a tour of 6 Cellar doors. We asked for the first one, St. Clair, and after going there she then decided what wines we would like and decided where we should be going which you might say is what she does. Yes she does, but having then learnt that she doesn't drink is... More

We had booked the 5-hour tour and were picked up by Chris, bang on the nose of when he'd said he would arrive. And from then on, it went from strength to strength. Chris listend to us and based our tour on what he knew we might enjoy...and he never put a foot wrong. We wanted to go to Isabel,... More

We took a half day wine tour of the Marlborough wine region in New Zealand with this company. We've taken many other wine tours, and they are pretty typical - visit a winery, taste some wines, purchase a few if you want, and on to the next stop. The guides have been more van drivers than sources of information. But... More

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
