Choose a 'Martinborough in a Day' tour and take the stress out of drink/driving. Fully hosted, visit four vineyards, enjoy a lovely vineyard lunch and visit an Olive Grove or take the 'Pinot to Palliser Bay' tour for something different. This tour goes to the fishing village of Ngawi and the seal colonies at Cape Palliser. Enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch on the beach and a beer or coffee at the historic Lake Ferry Hotel. All tours are conducted in luxury vehicles hosted by a local who knows the region intimately. This is your opportunity to go behind the scenes, meet winemakers and producers not normally available to the general public, while at the same time tasting the fantastic produce and wines of the region.

We booked a private one day tour for four people and were very impressed with the organisation the wineries visited and Simons expert knowledge . This not only included the wine but the history and development of the Martinborough region The bus was very comfortable and we visited six wineries including lunch. We were very fortunate to have Simon guide... More

We had a group of 7 arriving from various locations at various times so I contacted Simon directly by phone and then e-mail using the Web-site contact details. Simon then constructed a tailor-made itinerary around our travel needs and specific timings. He collected us from Featherston station, we then toured a number of Vineyards before taking in lunch in Martinborough.... More

This was a great all day wine tour. The guide was friendly, we met a lot of great people and we visited four local wineries. It was interested to hear the different stories to each winery, some being smaller than others. We ate food and drank wine all day and loved it!

First, we are not big on tours, as in avoiding them like the plague. This tour proved us wrong. Our driver and guide, Naomi, collected the 18 in our group at the train station in Wellington for the short and mostly scenic trip to Featherstone, where she had parked the bus most conveniently. Then off to Martinborough with an interesting... More

We experienced the friendliness and the expertise of Simon our tour guide on our tour in November. Nothing was too much trouble. My husband and I were meant to dropped back at a certain time with the other couple continuing on, but Simon was happy to let us continue on his tour. The Vineyards we toured were excellent. Highly recommend... More

My partner and I did a full day, customised tour which was an amazing experience from start to finish. Our tour was customised to suit us as we'd already done the mini-tour at Murdoch James (which I also highly recommend) and overnight accommodation in Martinborough was also booked for us. Simon, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, and yet... More

We have done wine tours in many countries and this was one of the best. We visited one good size, and three boutique wineries for tastings and touring. Each winery was enthusiastic about their craft and it showed. Our tour guide (Simon) was very knowledgeable about the region and New Zealand wines. Even more important, he was passionate about his...

We decided to treat ourselves to a private wine tour, and we did not regret it. Picked up from our hotel on time and driven around in a very comfortable car with Simon, our guide, who was friendly, knowledgable and flexible. I think we visited seven wineries in all, including a delightful tour and lunch provided at Murdoch James. The... More

Did our own thing in the vineyards - so easy with so many within walking distance of the central square, but picked up this tour to the wild Cape Palliser to see more of the country round about. Simon was an excellent guide explaining the culture and customs of the area. We were able to stand within a few feet... More
