Chris made our day very special by asking the right questions to find out where would be best to take us and he succeeded 100%. We were lucky enough to be the only two in the morning and then met up with two lovely siblings for lunch and the afternoon tour. We really value finding the wines that aren’t readily available at the supermarket and our wine Friday’s will definitely be full when we get home.
Apart from the wine tasting, my favourite part of the day was the great banter we had with Chris and prizing some personal recommendations from him. He was a little nervous about this as we bought some wines without tasting on faith. Can’t wait to email him our thoughts once we’ve tried them.

This wine tour was amazing. Different from every other one we have tried. It was informative and enjoyable. Chris our tour guide ensured my husband and myself had a truly wonderful day. The were four tours on offer but we chose this one. It was brilliant and and the wineries were picked because the were small and unusual. The tours are small 9 or less people. Tailored to what you like. It was a revelation. We tasted great wines we came back laden (with bottles). We went to small vineyards. The sommeliers were very knowledgeable with lovey customer service. Chris your a star. Eileen and Steve Oakley

We had a full day luxury wine tour for our party of four, picked up and dropped of from our hotel in Picton. Comforble sedan, the distances between locations is very short. Chris was very knowledgable and was able to easily guide our group not too much not too little interaction. Communications arranging everything were excellent, all tastings and lunch were ready for us when we arrived. There were no surprises and Chris used his experience and flexibility to adjust to our varied interests. We happily recommend.

Did the full day wine tour and was very impressed with the variety of vineyards we visited and the knowledgeable, local information from Chris. So many wines tasted and had a delicious lunch at St Clair. Would highly recommend doing this tour and Chris will try to tailor it to the wines you like and offer you something different to try en route.

What a magnificent day out! Chris opened our eyes to a whole new world of wine with his extensive knowledge of wines and his brilliant commentary on the history of the region and its wine production. If you are in Blenheim and thinking about a wine tour then here is the must do tour! I feel I could go back and do it all over again and the experience would be just as enjoyable and I would again increase my knowledge of wine and the region. Brilliant value for money led by an exceptional tour guide with a superb personality and a great sense of humour to compliment his knowledge of wine.

We visited 2 wineries before lunch, one for lunch and a tasting, and then 4 more after lunch. Chris will sort out any special requests, but we thought it was better to let him guide us, as he has extensive knowledge of the wines and the wineries. We tasted a great variety of wines including sparkling, not just the hallmark Sauvignon Blanc. We visited different sized operations too. Thoroughly recommend, we did research which tour to choose in advance and Na Clachan really delivered.

What a fabulous day we had with Bill as our guide. We were the only couple on the tour originally and we visited two wineries before Bill brought other couples to join us at the third winery (Saint Clair) where we had lunch. The group of us got on really well and had a good laugh together. Bill was a great host and gave us excellent information about the history of the area and the wineries we visited. Each winery was family owned and we tasted a real mix of local wines. Overall we visited 6 wineries tasting 5 wines at each. Would definitely recommend Na Clachan for your wine tour in Blenheim - a memorable day!

I cannot speak highly enough of this wine tour. I have done several guided tours in a number of wine regions throughout the world and this was the best experience I have had. Chris is extremely knowledgeable and puts in a great deal of effort and thought to planning your trip to appropriate wineries. I cannot recommend him highly enough and if you are going to do a wine tour in Blenheim this is the one to choose.

Hi Judith. Thanks for writing this review. It was lovely to take you and Sue on the first tour and then two weeks later take you and Gary on tour again. Coming on a second tour within two weeks speaks volumes for our service and tour. I look forward to seeing you again later in the year. Enjoy married life. Kind Regards Chris

We couldn't have made a better choice for a wine tour in Marlborough. We did the full day wine tour and Chris was excellent. We definitely got a very personalized experience - after the first few wineries, he decided which wineries to take us to based on what we liked and didn't like. He knew a lot about the area and the wineries, and everyone at the wineries recognized and liked him. All in all, we went to seven wineries AND a chocolate factory to end the experience. Highly recommend!

Hi Allyson and Craig. Thanks for the fantastic review of your tour with me. It was my pleasure to show you around the wineries of Marlborough. I love the challenge of understanding guests likes and dislikes and choosing wineries that guests will like. I hope you had a great time on South Island and enjoy the lovely wines you purchased on the tour. Thanks for choosing Na Clachan Wine Tours. Regards Chris

Booked with Chris because they pick up from Havelock as well as elsewhere. We were a group of six were joined by five others so a nice size group.
Chris arrive to pick us up on time despite traffic hold ups on the route.
We visited 7 winerys and sampled well over 30 wines!
Thus is a great, well organised and friendly company and I highly recommend them. We had a really brilliant day.

Hi Alan and group. The day was certainly a bit of a challenge due to the major accident on SH6. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your holiday in New Zealand and thanks for taking the time to write the review. Regards Chris
