This wine tour is a must for all those who enjoy good wine and a fun time! Our tour guide Mike took us to 5 different wineries. We travelled though the beautiful Blenheim region,sampled some great wines, had a delicious lunch and ended up in the best chocolate factory I've ever been too. Thanks Mike for a fantastic tour.

Fantastic personalized tour with a great guide and only four other people. Much better than being on a busload of passengers from the cruise ship and half the price.

Picton is small and gorgeous. Our ship arrived early and we took the first bus out to see the little town wake up...good bakery on the corner and while enjoying our pastry and coffee, we watched the sun rise up over the water. Shops in Picton have excellent prices on souvenirs!!! Excursion bus was small and comfortable..we headed out towards Blenheim to start the tour. Our driver was very informative and gave us the best highlights. You have the option to see the aviation museum as your 1st stop. We went on with the excellent wines and beautiful countryside. Make sure you eat a good breakfast or order a snack at the first winery. Lunch was not included but we had a tapas board at one of the winery's. Buy the Gin offered at one of the winery's. Gin was amazing called Lighthouse. The Best! Chocolate stop was over crowded but delicious, so grab a box and move on. Get right back on the bus as soon as you arrive back at Picton.

We were met by our tour guide and was pleasantly surprised we were the only people booked for this tour. The tour was done by Jade Tours and our guide was sooo good. A very interesting and knowledgeable guide. We had a wonderful tour and stopped for lunch price not included in tour at a very charming winery. Definitely would recommend this tour.

This was a small group tour of five wineries in the Marlborough wine region. Pick-up from the ship was easy and well organized, and the tour guide and driver was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the New Zealand wine industry. All five wineries were interesting and varied. We had a great day! My wife and I recommend this tour very highly.

We had the outstanding privilege of touring this area with Sue as our guide. We were two couples traveling together, and she took us around in her SUV, just us, so we got up close, and personal stories and history of the area. Sue was the most excellent of guides and knew about everything we saw and asked about. She and her husband Mike really have a wonderful tour service, and if I ever go back there, we will ask for them for sure. We visited 5 wineries, each one spectacular for it's own reasons. The wine samplings were generous and of very good quality. It was hard not to order a case at each one. We had a wonderful lunch, and ended the day with chocolate again, so, so good. Thanks Sue - we loved all the pictures you sent us. Merry Christmas to you and Mike and family.

One of my favorite tours. Sue from Jade Tours was amazing. She took us to five wineries and all were excellent. We never felt rushed and were warmly welcomed at each one. Sue even took pictures throughout the day and emailed them to us. I highly recommend this tour to anyone wishing to try the excellent Marlborough wine region.
