What to expect
Your day begins with a morning pick-up from your Blenheim hotel by private vehicle. Having discussed your itinerary in advance, your local guide will have everything arranged for your custom-made tour, so all you have to do is sit back and soak up the scenery as you drive through the vineyards of the Wairau Valley, or past the snow-capped peaks and glittering waters of the Marlborough Sounds. Follow the Marlborough Wine Trail, pausing to enjoy wine tasting at some of Marlborough’s celebrated wineries, and sample popular regional varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Pinot Noir. Along the way, visit artisan boutiques, orchards, and street stalls, to sample an array of gourmet oils, chutneys, liqueurs, and cheeses; indulge in sweet treats like homemade gelato, chocolate and fudge; and tuck into fresh seasonal fruits like cherries, apricots, and nectarines. As you browse the shops, they’ll be plenty of opportunities to purchase regional specialties such as black garlic, smoked mushrooms, and Manuka honey. For lunch (own expense), choose from one of the many cafés or restaurants overlooking the Marlborough Sounds, where you might want to try local dishes like salmon or green lip mussels, or indulge in a delicious Devonshire tea. The rest of your tour is yours to customize to your preferences, and possible activities include a thrilling jet boat ride around the Marlborough Sounds (extra cost); a tour of the Omaka Air Museum; or a visit to a local artist’s workshop.

WONDERFUL! Best money we spent in NZ
First I have to apologize as this is wildly overdue. Initially I reached out to Pamela via email and we were able to organize a one-day private tour for my wife and I, accompanied by our 12 year old daughter who's effectively a teenager. Trying to combine a scenic and wine tasting experience while also creating some fun for our city daughter and giving her some feel for a more rural existence.

Well- the American phrase to best describe it, is, Pamela "knocked it out of the park". Wine tasting, beautiful vistas, farm visits for our daughter (and a special surprise even I did not know about!) And Pamela bent over backwards to organize our transfers from the airport in the AM and to Linkwater in the evening. On top of all that, it was terrifically pleasant just to spend the day with Pamela and her local knowledge.

Phenomenal. Tremendous memories, absolutely the best money we spent in New Zealand, can't recommend Pamela March & Your Local Chauffeur highly enough. Belatedly, thank you again Pamela! We truly hope to be back.

My husband and I had a very pleasant day with Pamela who took us to some amazing wineries. She took note of our preferences and made sure to take us to family owned businesses to try something new that we might enjoy! Thanks so much for a great day.
