Lovely Kerry guided our group round. Very knowledgable about where was open & could fit us in. Did her best to accommodate vineyards we really wanted to get to with a full van! Took us to a good lunch spot and generally looked after us well

I really couldn't recommend this company enough. I'm travelling solo around New Zealand and they still picked me up to take me around the wineries even though I was the only person. For $60 it was cheaper than the other operators and yet the quality and sophistication of the experience was priceless. I therefore tipped them. My guide had a... More

Hi Adrian, I'm glad you decided to come on a tour with me. I can't believe you nearly left Blenheim without doing a tour either. I mean priorities!, ha ha. It is great that you had a great tour and got to some interesting places. Life is to short to drink bad wines so it is best to come to... More

Kerry knew exactly what we were after. My partner and myself are far from wine experts, but we both came out knowing a lot more about it and definitely gained greater appreciation for the process. The fact all of the employees at all 6 vineyards were stoked to see Kerry says enough about her. Fun, friendly and knowledgable. 5 stars.

I did the half-day tour. Kerry is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide, she was early to pick me up and she took us to some very nice vineyards and tasting rooms. She is clearly well known in these locations and well-liked, her good rapport with the staff at all these locations meant that we were greeted warmly wherever we... More

Thank you for the wonderful review. I'm glad you had a great day. We all love to showcase what we had to offer her in Marlborough and a wine tour is the best way to see it all without having to Drink and Drive. The wineries have so much to offer from food and wine to other things of difference.... More

This tour was very special as Lindsay, our driver, had so much local knowledge of the vineyards that the tour was well informed and flexible, catering for the different needs of those on the tour. We had a fantastic lunch at Allan Scotts', which was part of the full day and which provided three amazing courses. Highly recommended.
