Colleen went the extra mile and put together a day for us that was perfect. Lovely wineries and superb wines, all in great comfort. A wonderful lunch at Wairau River and a little tiki tour at the end to dip into the past. A really great day.

Tour guide David was very friendly and knowledgeable in the Marlborough wine region. Would definitely recommend. We arrived the day after the earthquake that hit Kaikoura and the aftershock in Blenheim so a few of the cellar doors where closed but we still had an amazing time.... thanks David, From the Aussies

Amazing time with Dave as our guide, we went to awesome wineries pretty sure we left with at least 1 bottle per vineyard. Great knowledge of the area and a beautiful car to be driven around in - felt like royalty! Highly recommended.

My boyfriend and I booked a private tour in the gorgeous Mustang to celebrate our anniversary. I booked quite late (the day before) but Dave was quick to respond to my email and very happy to accomodate us. He asked us what types of wine we enjoyed and took us to several smaller wineries that are known to make that... More

We were on the same tour as LiLPPB0812 - how did I know that? Because that's how good a time we had, I could tell that was the same tour. I can't add much more to everything she has said only to say that we were served by NZ brewing royalty at Allan Scott Wineries when Josh Scott gave the... More

Our guide brought us to five different wineries, where we tried multiple glasses of sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, pinot noir, chardonnay, champagne and syrah. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, but also an informative one, and I learned a lot about how to differentiate between different types of wine, which ones I like, etc. If you've got a free day...

David was an absolute wealth of knowledge. He knew the region from every aspect - where to go, history, geology and the finer aspects of wine making. Even chiming in from time to time, to help out the cellar door salespeople when answering obscure questions. Second to none! The wineries we visited were brilliant too - each with a varied... More

What a great trip. My wife and I did this tour at last minute, but the team looked after us very well. Dave our guide (although new in his job) was very informative and knew a lot about the area. The tour took us to a lot of smaller wineries that we have tasted before. Lunch was also great. Thanks
