I would have never guessed NZ has a wine country, but wow! Took an amazing train ride from Wellington to Martinborough. Naomi our tour guide met the group and off we go to learn and drink. We lunched in Martinborough. “We have a vegan onboard!” Inside joke. Naomi, you are amazing. Loved your tour.
Thoroughly enjoyed the trip! Lovely wines, brilliant guide and the platter lunch was delicious.
This trip was so great. It was a great experience to see both ends of the spectrum of New Zealand wine making, since we visited a good mix of small wineries, and a larger commercial production houses. The wines were very good, and we brought some back with us to remember the excellent Pinot Noir, Sav Blanc, and Rose that were tasted. Our day had a bit of trouble because of a delay in the New Zealand train system, and half our group did not arrive on time. However, they were able to catch up to us over lunch in Martinborough. Heather was our tour guide and she was a hoot. She did a great job to heard cats and keeping the group together, even after we had all had a few samples and were feeling like talking and staying too long at each spot. I recommend this trip to anyone that wants to see the New Zealand wine country around Martinsborough, and wants to avoid having to drive or bike themselves to/from the wineries. Very reasonable, very informative, and super fun!!!
This was a lovely day and introduction to NZ wine, Our guide Naomi was just charming and well informed about the area. She made everyone comfortable and saw to our every need. The four wineries we visited were just the right number to enjoy in a single day, and I had some favorites that I will now seek out. The pace and timing of the day was just right The train ride to and from was uneventful but the scenery was beautiful. I would definitely recommend this trip for a nice day of tasting.
Great day trip ides from Wellington CBD. We've visit 4 wineries and beautiful lunch in between. After wineries visit we're back in town for look around town ship. Very flat place easy to walk around for any age.
Other reviewers mentioned how good Naomi was - and we can agree - she was fantastic. We did other win tours on this trip but this was the best. A minor hiccup is that the voucher says to present the voucher at the Wellington train station and they will give you tickets for the train - but the train station ticket office knew nothing about this. However, in true relaxed NZ style, the train conductors were totally fine about it.
Would highly recommend this tour. Naomi was an amazing guide and made sure everything was perfect on the day. The wineries were amazing and the food was delicious. Great day out!

A good range of wines. The assistant as very knowledgeable and informative
A very well organised tour. Naomi, our driver/guide, was very knowledgeable and made sure we got to the vineyards etc on time without the feeling of being rushed.
The vineyards we visited were diverse and gave a very good idea of the types of grape/wine produced in the area.
The reason I picked this tour over any other was this one included everything so no need to worry about spending anything else, unless you really want another glass of wine with your lunch or wish to buy bottles from the vineyards.
A totally enjoyable day out the weather was also on our side. I would recommend this to everyone.
Nice intimate group 4 in total, headed up by Jackie who was laid back, yet organized and helpful without being a control freak. Great day and no pressure to buy a good thing if you are from over the ditch and can only bring 2 bottles back in case. All wineries had top quality wine, and I've now developed a love for martinborough Riesling .
Wonderful day with our guide Naomi. Our lunch was delicious as well and the sheesh plate after our 4 vineyard visits was a welcome treat!
Great tour you got to visit 4 wineries beautiful lunch and to finish off the day with a cheese platter. Well worth doing.
One of my favourite tours on this trip to NZ. A small group of 8 and an excellent guide. Tasted some very fine wines and made some new friends. Pretty perfect in my book
Train stop was walking distance from cruise ship. The train station in Wellington was a good experience and we were helped by nice train personnel to get on the correct train. Our guide, Naomi, was wonderful. Visited four great wineries and had some great scenery. Tour operated as advertised and we highly recommend it.
Such a wonderful day enjoyed everything and the food was soooo delish. Would do again for sure
great day, friendly and informative guide who looked after us all very well, a very relaxing and enjoyable experience
Naomi was wonderful. She was so informative and delightful. A must do for a day from Wellington
Our tour guide Naomi was fantastic. There were only 5 of us on the trip but all gelled really well. The tour of the vineyards was very informative and interesting. And the lunch was delightful.
Had a great time, the guide was great and the wines great. Lunch was just wonderful. They accommodated meal requests for vegetarian and gluten free, and presented fantastic food. I highly recommend this tour.
