Thanks for the great review, Michael. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your Wings of Omaka and Marlborough Wine Tour from Picton. The exhibits at the museum are excellent and a must see for both history buffs and casual audiences alike. It's a great attraction in Blenheim and I'm glad it's receiving so much positive feedback.
With regard to your first comment, we completely understand the hesitation of booking a private shore excursion instead of going with the cruise ships tours, as cruises will often use fear-tactics to discourage their passengers going with other companies. With that said, we have been operating these tours for the past 7 years and we have never missed the cruise ship final boarding times, which is why we're confident to say that if we miss your ship for whatever reason then we guarantee to get you to next port.
Thanks again and I hope you get to return to Picton and Marlborough one day soon!
