Great fun. Winery hospitality and tastings were great. It was good to get out in the open air and ride a bike around to the wineries.

Thanks for your review. Glad to hear you enjoyed the biking between the vineyards. We think it is the nicest way to tour the Marlborough wine region.
Thanks again.

We had a wonderful time riding bikes with a guided tour and exploring the wineries. Bike ride was nice and easy (A little bumpy on gravel roads). Our guide used our feedback and wine preferences to recommend our route. She was able to offer great insight and plenty of useful information about the area and wine.

Well run tour. Great way to see the vineyards and the experience the different wine., Getting in the much needed exercise whilst having a great time was an added bonus.

From the moment Karen picked us up from the Blenheim airport on that sunny warm January morning, we knew immediately that it was going to be a wonderful experience and that we were in very capable, super friendly, and knowledgable hands.

Karen took the time to understand what we hoped to get out the day, what types of wine we liked, and were there specific wineries that were absolute musts for us (ahem...Cloudy Bay) and she was able to put together a perfect day-long itinerary which hands down is the absolute best wine tasting tour I've ever experienced (and I've done many). Karen also helped us select which wineries we should visit based her own personal experiences, after having lived in the area for more than a decade, which certainly made it easier to narrow down our list (we managed to squeeze in quite a lot visits to wineries big and small). Every winery was different from the next and with each we got to know a about its origin and other pieces of info that would have been missed without having our own personal guide for the day. Sitting outside in Marlborough eating a wonderful lunch with locally sourced ingredients was certainly one of the many highlights of the day. We shockingly even fell in love with a few Chardonnays and Rieslings which blew my mind (we're major Sauv B snobs).

Do yourself a favor book with Explore Marlborough Wine Tours for a wine tour you will never forget. Marlborough is an absolute must for anyone that visits New Zealand, my only regret is not having a second day to experience even more of the such a picturesque wine region.

Wow! That's an awesome review thank you! It was lovely to meet you guys. It is always such a pleasure to tour with people that are fans of our wines and to then be able to show them some of our little hidden gems. Hope you found somewhere good for dinner in Wellington and that your friends weren't too jealous.
Hope to see you back at some point.

Kind Regards
Karen

We took this tour when we visited Picton via a cruise ship. The bus trip to the start of the bike ride was well organized. Karen & Lucy got everybody properly set up on the bikes. Lucy gave a knowledgeable introduction to the wine growing efforts in the area. After our initial stop where we sampled three wines, we took a safely organized ride to the second winery. We sat in a lovely patio area while we heard about and sampled four different wines. From there we took another delightful ride to the third winery. On the way there we stopped by a row of grape vines. Lucy gave us an overview of how the vines are maintained and cultivated though the growing season. We had an outstanding lunch in the field and sampled a few more wines. The wines at all the stops were varied and tasty.
