We had a great time and the tour guide, Don, was excellent. It was really interesting to see the different wineries, to taste the different wines and to take in the ambience and scenery. The staff were also so helpful when I left my prescription sunnies in the bus, and dropped off at the motel. A very positive experience.

My partner and I booked a full day wine tour and had a wonderful time.

Our guide Kevin was just lovely and looked after us very well - we were delighted to be the only ones on our tour so had free reign to pick where we wanted to go as well as some good guidance from Kevin.

I appreciated being able to experience the organic winery I wanted to, and my partner was extremely happy with the overall day. The lunch was fantastic - Kevin actually ASKS what we feel like and takes us to somewhere suitably delicious.

The chocolate shop on the way was a big treat and we were impressed with the quality there too.

Highly recommended.

We had the sounds boat tour followed by lunch at slip inn then a wine tour in the afternoon. Well worth it . Our tour operators were a lot of fun. We went to 4 wineries in the afternoon then dropped back to the motel. We enjoyed ourselves so much we booked another 1/2 day tour for the next day. They took us to different wineries. Being kiwis we enjoyed going to wineries where you don't see the wine on the shelves in the superarkets. Thanks to Dell, Kevin and of coarse Eric we had a ball.Hopefully be back in a couple of years

We wanted a half day tour in the afternoon (not fancying the tasting in the morning) and chose the medium as it seemed to offer a bit more than the short one. While we fully enjoyed the tour a full day would have been too much.

Kevin picked us up from Picton and handed us over to Chris (I think!) for the tour. Both were excellent and informative. Our group of 8 visited 5 winery's and the chocolate factory. Quite a variation in the wines being tasted and we appreciated that. Highly recommended. Good choice for us to do it from Picton as it is a more interesting place to stay than Blenheim, didn't cost us any more and suited our itinerary better.

We chose Marlborough wine tours through word of mouth. We were not disappointed. We chose the short wine tour as we were on a cruise ship and wanted time to see Picton as well. The tour was listed as 3 hours. This did not include the time taken to travel to and return from the vineyards.In this 3 hour trip we visited 3 vineyards and sampled some great wines. The vineyards chosen on the day were not crowded, unlike some of those we passed who had large coach loads of guests. We were returned to the ship in time to have a quick look around Picton as planned. All in all a very enjoyable day out. Would recommend.
