Fabulous, driver chappy made sure we were well taken care of, all the wine, food, and local history we wanted. Great to have such wonderful group of travellers on this trip, they made the day even that much more enjoyable. A breeze to book too. Sheila Alberta Canada

Hope this is the correct site. Train ride from Wellington to Featherston was lovely. Small bus was ok to go around wineries. Disappointed only went to 4 wineries, and 3 of them were nearly in walking distance of each other, so felt for the day didn't really experience the area. Lunch was fresh and lovely, plus cheese at the end... More

We had a great day trip to Martinborough. We learnt a lot more about wines and the trip was both relaxing and intoxicating! We were not very good at drinking so didn't drink much. But there were others on the trip with us who totally enjoyed glasses of drink at each of the wineries.

We had a great day on the Tranzit wine tour, friendly guide and only 2 other people on the tour who were lovely. Went to a great range of wineries and a lovely lunch in the village. Would definitely recommend. Many people catch the train over from Wellington but we were picked up and dropped off at our accommodation in... More

We booked this day excursion with Tranzit and chose the option which had us staying overnight at a very quaint period hotel in Martinborough. The tour starts off with a train ride which you are responsible for boarding yourself. A rep only meets you at the other end in Featherston. If your train ticket has been prepaid with the tour,...

This was a wonderful wine tour. It began with a scenic train ride from Wellington to Featherston and then a short bus ride to Martinborough. After a brief stop for coffee and for our delightful tour guide Naomi to give us an overview of what to expect on the tour, we began at the Murdoch James Estate's Blue Rock Vineyard... More

A few friends and I did the Martinborough Gourmet Wine Tour run by Tranzit Tours earlier this year and I would highly recommend it. It's a great day out of the city for any Wellintonians or visitors to the capital, and the whole experience is so easy. The food and wine are great quality and the range of vineyards the... More
