“"Must do" excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

You could visit vineyards by yourselves - but what an experience you are missing if you do !. We took the half day tour with Kerry and what an great excursion it was. She has a brilliant understanding of wine production and a wide range of contacts throughout the region. Her commentary as we toured round was interesting, engaging and humorous - not a dull moment all afternoon. Whilst the larger vineyards were enjoyable - we went to Cloudy Bay, Scotts and Hunters - Kerry's suggestion to visit a "boutique" vineyard was our highlight. The visit to Bladen was first class - great wine and the most friendly Red Setter (Vinnie)you will ever find. Tremendous value for money and you even get to go to a chocolate factory at the end of the tour. Perfect!.

“wine tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

The bubbly grape wine tour was fantastic and we enjoyed ever minute.The tour guide was so good and helped me as my legs had trouble getting on and off the van. She was amazing. The stories she told were great and we all had fun.The vine yards were all so different but all so good. A wonderful day out.

“Fantastic day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We did the full-day Gourmet Wine Tour as part of our anniversary holiday to Blenheim, and I can't recommend the tour enough. Lots of fun, with a great mixture of larger vineyards (Cloudy Bay and Brancott) and smaller, boutique ones (Braden was just wonderful). Gorgeous views, a stunning three-course lunch, and a grand finale at the Makana Chocolate shop.

All in all, a thoroughly fantastic day out, and well worth the all-inclusive tour charge.

“Just perfectt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

What a fabulous tour, what a brilliant day thank god our motor home broke so we didn't miss out on this wine tour.
We absolutely loved it I loved the mixture of small and larger vineyards and also that Kerry adapted the tour to take in my love of red wine much appreciated. Kerry's knowledge and passion for wine and Marlborough shone through and her bubbly personality made it definitely highlight of our trip, Thanks for a great day and wine tasting experience.

“Relaxed & Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Kerry made the half day tour a heap of fun. She has a great sense of humour but is also totally professional in the way she conducts the tour. She was happy for us to make requests to visit particular wineries but also had knowledge of some great smaller vineyards which were well worth a visit.
