We loved the region and not having to drive was a real bonus. The driver was very accommodating to any other wineries we wanted to go
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.
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 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!
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.
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.
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.
Great tour - comfortable small group tour, knowledgeable driver, wineries waiting for us and good Marlborough wines too!
A great way to spend the day in Picton. We were picked up from the cruise ship and taken back in time to sail.
Unfortunately, I'm not a white wine drinker, as this is a white wine region, but Andy, my guide took me to a couple of red wine vineyards while the remainder of the group were on lunch and I got more out of that. Afterwards, I got taken to a brewery as I like ale, and they paid for me to get samples of the ales, which was more thank kind of them
Fabulous guides and wonderful wineries......it was the best tour of our cruise!
Our driver met us in Picton, and we drove out to Marllborough. It was cold and rainy, but we had a great time visiting a variety of wineries, from very small to large. Our driver was knowledgeable and made the day interesting and fun, in spite of the bad weather.
Great itinerary and excellent guides. Went out of their way to please. Prompt pickup and delivery.
Excellent mix of large and small vineyards.
