Our guide Andy was fabulous. Everything was pre arranged at the wineries and we received VIP treatment. Andy knew the area extremely well and managed to let us spend some time exploring some additional shops and wineries that were not originally part of our tour. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to take a tour of the wineries in the Picton region.
Tour was exceptional. The tour guide was well informed and very accommodating. We visited a number of wineries and tasted some delicious wines, topped off with a delicious lunch and a visit to a handmade chocolate supplier. Would highly recommend this tour. Great value for money.
It was a grand day in Marlborough Wine Country... being part of a small group meant that we got a lot more attention and information at the various wineries we visited.. The lunch stop was not only wonderful but timely...we did need a break from wine tasting. A beautiful tour and a great guide.
Really enjoyed our wine tasting tour. Our tour guide was entertaining, knowledgeable and made the tour extra special.
We had a great time. Our driver was full of information and treated us all well. She knew all our names and made the tip personal. She also answered all our questions.
Delightful tour! Andy gave us a remarkably pleasant tour to 4 wineries and a great restaurant for lunch. It was easy to find him at the agreed-upon pickup spot, and it was a great day.
Pamela our local tour lady is amazing. She grew up there. Knows the area inside out. Wine tour is fantastic. Excellent choice of vineyards. The lunch restaurant she took us to was a must. It was a beautiful vineyard/restaurant. The food was out of this world and price is cheap. The chocolate shop and local highlights were great. You will need a local person like Pamela to show you. Don't waste your money with cruise ship. You will not be disappointed it with Pamela and her crew. Thank you Pamela for a wonderful day and memory.
Excellent tour. Well organised and very informative.
All went well with our getting to the tour bus from the ship, where we were met by our very nice tour guide for the day. We were taken to four very nice and picturesque wineries, some of the wines were very good, others not quite so much to our taste. The guide I forget her name certainly had a very good knowledge of the area and wine growing and production. We had lunch at one of the wineries, which was a very pleasant experience. we were then taken to the Chocolate factory, which was very nice, but rather expensive.
The tour provided a very good mix of wineries, sightseeing, shopping, and a visit to a chocolate factory. The tour guide, Pam, was fabulous. Would highly recommend.
The tour was a bit rushed due to the late arrival of our ship. We still had the opportunity to visit some great beautiful wineries. Our guide, Carol, made sure that we had the chance to visit a wonderful chocolate shop which was the reason one member of our party signed on. Really enjoyed the day.
This Tour was one of the Best! We had a wonderful Tour guide who made a point to take us to wineries we could all enjoy. We prefer Red Wine but we told her we liked a sweeter wine and we found two of the four wineries had just what we wanted in white wine.
The small group gave us time to tour the wineries, have a delicious lunch and stop at a Candy factory to watch candy made and taste sample. A real enjoyable tour!
Pamela March tour owner worked so hard to make this tour a success. Only problem was not really a small group tour. Each minivan bus crowded and hot and two busses traveling together made 22 people in each stop not what we had expected. However, Winery tours were wonderful and lunch stop very good. Cheese tasting a joke as barely a morsel to taste. Chocolate factory great. All in all a good day just not exactly what we had envisioned.
Our tour guide and driver took us to us to the wineries that were less traveled and therefore NOT crowed with tour buses. And they served wonderful wines. The small group made it easy to hear and travel together. This was a GREAT tour and highly recommended.
Fanatastic. We missed the bus and everyone went out of their way to see that we rejoined our group. Fantastic lunch at a vineyard. Very informative and interesting information along the way. Highly recommend.
Excellent tour! Andy was the best. We would highly recommend this tour!
Tour guide was excellent, went out of his way to find wines that suited me, which I am now enjoying. Lunch was exceptional, sadly service was a it slow so we had to rush dessert.
Our tour guide Sam was wonderful. She took us to several wineries where we did some tasting and learned about the history of NZ wines. My husband was quite impressed that the wine industry was started by a Croatian, from his own homeland. Sam told us a lot about NZ and answered all our questions. The chocolate factory was fantastic were we sampled some home made preservative free chocolate. She also took photos of us continuously which will form part of our memories of NZ. We completed our tour at an amazing lookout point. We have returned to Sydney with many beautiful memories of NZ. The people are wonderful and friendly. I would highly recommend a day tour with Sam.

Enjoyed by all 8 of us.
Was just what we wanted! Mike was really friendly and had excellent knowledge of the area. He also adjusted our trip to suit our group- importantly to incorporate a boutique chocolate factory! His choice for our lunch venue was absolutely spot on and it was delicious. No coach loads of other tourists. Very good value.

Excellent. Beautiful scenery and good Marlborough wineries. Small group of 10 which made the trip that bit more personal. Guide very knowledgeable and affable. Altogether a trip worth taking.
We visited 3 wineries and they were all very nice. Lunch at our own expense was very enjoyable. The driver, Trish, was very pleasant and informative.
A great excursion through lovely countryside, on time, good content, informative and caring staff but more to the point, lovely food and wine.
