    Had a lovely time on this tour, our guide, Mike, was very accommodating and knowledgeable, the wineries and tastings were great, we came away with a few bottles, as well as a few recommendations of things to try later in the week! Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a relaxing experience around the Marlborough wineries.

    We had a brilliant time on our half day wine tour with Sue. She took us to a great selection of vineyards plus a chocolate factory, shared insightful knowledge and facts throughout the day and was overall a fantastic host. We were very lucky to find ourselves the only ones on our tour - thank you to Sue and Jade for making it a special day during our trip to NZ.

    There are so many opportunities to visit vineyards and cellars it’s a good idea to get a guide unless you are a competent wine buff. We chose to have a half day tour and found the whole trip thoroughly enjoyable, our guide Mike was very knowledgable and provided us with a lot of local knowledge on the vineyards we visited and tailored the selection of cellars to suite our tastes in wine. There was no pressure to buy wine and we received all the information necessary to choose wine and export back to UK if required.
