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.

Mike did an excellent job of explaining the features of the various wineries we went to. All had their distinguishing features, and we got to taste a wide variety of wines. This was an excellent tour in a comfortable van, thanks Mike.
