Martinborough is beautiful, and well worth the day trip out of Wellington. Tranzit's wine tour is very convenient and fun - from the pick up to the drop off, we were very well taken care of by Naomi. The wines were great, as was the company.

I highly recommend this wine tour. Whilst in New Zealand I did take a few wine tours but this was by far the best. One of the main reasons was the guide Naomi. Travelling as a single person Naomi really looked after me and ensured I was always part of the group. She has a very warm and caring manner,... More

Naomi is an excellent guide and host. We went on wine tours in three different regions of New Zealand and this was by far our favorite one. Naomi is the main reason we enjoyed this one the most.

Naomi was our guide in this lovely tour. She is a fantastic lady! We have visited four excellent wineries. It is totally worth doing. The train journey from Wellington is nice and easy. Just have your printed booking and get the tickets at the station, as they will instruct you in a confirmation e-mail.
