We spent a full day on the Hop on Hop off tour to wineries. We took off from Picton iSite and continued to visit 6 different wineries, tasted over 40 different wines and had a beautiful lunch at Highland Terravin winery.

I can highly recommend this tour, should you need a "shuttle service" without any specific tour guidance.

We got the tour with a GrabOne deal, so ‘only’ paid $39 each. It turned out that we went on a cruise ship day, not listed as such on the site, and the buses were busy. The day was a bit of a travesty, from the time we joined in Blenheim at 11:00 until the end. The bus did not stick to the timetable AT ALL, which meant we were constantly looking for the bus, and we only saw 3 wineries all day which was not what we had planned. Had we known how hit and miss the timetable was we would have gone with Bubbly Grape and paid the extra. The drivers were nice enough, but other than that can’t recommend.

Great way to get pop south of Picton if you are foot passenger on the ferry (so have no car etc) to see some attractions down in Marlborough. I found the Hop on, Hop off bus an excellent service and thoroughly enjoyed my day out. The bus drivers were friendly and helpful.

I did the Wonders of Marlborough tour, with the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre being the highlight for me. The bus comes every hour but I would recommend staying 2 hours at Omaka to have time to see everything.

We just did the inaugural trip on the hop on hop off bus. What a great new attraction. Three different tours available, Wonders of Marlborough, choose between Picton or Blenheim, and Wine Beer and Food. We did the Picton tour first, a mini cruise on the Eko Tours launch, and a visit to The Edwin Fox. both tours are well worth the trip, The Edwin Fox is excellent, so much history and much of it packed into a hands on type of visit,
From there we caught the bus back to Blenheim and hopped onto the Wine tour bus, Stopped at Highfield for lunch, Alan Scott for Wine Tasting, and Makana for Chocolate, 5.30pm and we arrive back at the Blenheim I site, tired and happy. Congratulations Escape, for a great day, and a great new service
Brilliant day,
