We had a great experience with Lucy, our biking wine guide. We were booked for a full day outing, that included lunch at one of the wineries. It was just myself, my husband and our guide, which made our experience more personable. Lucy was fun, professional and very knowledgeable about the local wines and vineyards. She took us to some smaller boutique wineries which we enjoyed. Lucy knew the history of the area and shared a great deal with us about each vineyard while we biked to the next stop. It was a cooler, overcast day but that didn't stop us from having the best day with Explore Marlborough Wines! We would definitely recommend a biking tour with them!

All perfect timing. Bikes in good condition, comfortable and easy to adjust. Great location as surrounded by vineyards and no real hills so works well for lapsed cyclists. Done as a very small group so never lost the personal touch. Fitted in 4 tastings and a lovely lunch stop. Also Karen shared lots of wine and local knowledge. Thank you.

The tour was excellent. Our family of three enjoyed it so much. Cycling around the vineyards was great fun and in my opinion the best way to taste wine. Our guide was excellent and the company also very good. I would recommend this to everyone.

An interesting and good fun day getting to understand the history of the Marlborough wine district and some of the local vine yards. Tasted some great wines and thoroughly enjoyed the company of our 'water skiing campion' guide Peter

Hi

Thanks for the review. I know that Peter enjoyed his day out with you as well. He is so busy water skiing at this time of year we don't get the benefit of all his knowledge and experience guiding very often. You were some of the lucky few. Glad you had a great day.

Kind Regards
Karen

We took a biking tour with Karen from the Explore Marlborough Wine Tours on a stunning sunny day. Karen shared a lot of brilliant information about Marlborough while taking us from one winery to the other. It was a great way to take wine tours to a whole new level: Easy biking, lot of knowledge and delicious wine. Perfect!
