      Great local knowledge took us to some wonderful vineyards.
      Pamela showed us around some great local vineyards which we had never been to before, as well as an amazing viewpoint other the whole region and a lovely local chocolate factory to finish the day. It was brilliant that we could all enjoy the wine tour without needing to worry about having a designated driver.

      Lovely Marlborough region
      Had a really nice day with Pamela visiting wineries and seeing the lovely Picton area. Would recommend this tour ( note, the van was a bit awkward to get in and out of though)

      Shore Excursion to Marlborough Region
      Thank you Pamela ( Your local chaffeur) for your expertise and friendliness. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the three wineries, cheese and chocolate tastings. We recommend Pamela when cruising into Picton.

      Sated and content
      Pamela was the perfect host. She was attentive, informative but not intrusive. We were collected on time and taken to some wonderful vineyards with excellent food and wine offerings. We also experienced chocolate and champagne tastings. The tour was excellent value for money and we "rolled" out of the van when returned to our motel at 6:30pm, sated and content.

      Our only big disappointment in a two week trip
      We feel completely ripped off. While our tour guide was lovely and the 20-year-old van was very comfortable, sadly the tour simply didn't provide what was advertised. The guide blamed Covid and then blamed us, there was no apology or offer of compensation for the false advertising. We looked at lots of tours and this one - the most expensive - stood out with this advertising: "Stop for seasonal produce (December through February) of juicy strawberries, cherries, apricots and nectarines, along with local cheeses, oils, liqueurs, Manuka honey, peanut butter and black garlic. Make a special stop at the Makana Confections Boutique Chocolate Factory for some divine chocolate treats!" There was nothing of the sort provided. When I raised it and showed the guide their own website she looked troubled and tried to compensate by buying a block of cheese! At the end of the tour she did offer to take us to a chocolate place, but by then we were so disillusioned we asked to go back to our hotel. None of the other items were offered, which is really sad as the region seems to be rich in those areas. Basically the $295 per head tour gave us the same value as the $115 per head one we originally considered. I have complained to the booking company - getyourguide.com - and they are based in Germany and just keep passing it off with excuses. They say that the guide told them she offered us some of the additional items we expected, but I bluntly don't believe them that she said that - after all - we would have jumped at them, not turned them down! It looks like our only option will be to take the local operator to the Small Claims Tribunal and seek a refund of the difference between what we paid and the value we'd have received from the $115 tour. Sadly we didn't even get an apology, just insistence that it was our fault for expecting too much!! Beware the booking agent - getyourguide.com - they are simply awful to deal with. I think the local operator just needs to update their website and not set these expectations. Then they can compete on a level playing field with the other operators once they remove their false, or out of date, claims.

      Great way to explore the bounty of the Marlborough area
      We had a wonderful day touring Marlborough's wineries with Pamela! She customized our tour, based on our tastes and interests. She is very knowledgeable and personable. What a fun day! We would highly recommend her tour to anyone who would like to explore this beautiful area.

      A super day
      We had a super day with Ian as our chauffeur. Along the way we saw many names that we know from buying some at home. We visited six wineries and had very informative chats with the staff at each one. Lunch at the Fancy Cow was good, and we met up with Pamela and another group. A really great day, informative and fun. Thank you Ian and Pamela.

      Small Group Winery Tour- Awesome Tour
      Pamela was an amazing host- we saw 4 wineries, had a great lunch, enjoyed some chocolates. As an added bonus in between wineries, we stopped and tried the local gin. Pamela was full of information. The small group was perfect for visiting the wineries.

      Best guide ever!
      Pamela was amazing! We had reserved the day months in advance and emailed with her about what we were looking for and she responded back and forth as we crafted our day based on our desires and her experience. She is knowledgeable, fun and very caring that you have the best experience possible with her. It was by far the best private trip we ever planned.

      Great way to enjoy Marlborough wines.
      Our day of wine tasting was Devine! Each winery gave us new and interesting varietals to savor. The wineries were each different and unique from each other. Our guide, Pamela was a delight and very informed. Would recommend to anyone who wants to immerse themselves in NZ’s great wine region.

      Great day visiting beautiful wineries
      We had an amazing day with Pamela seeing the sites of Marlborough. The wineries we went to were beautiful, and we got to customise our tour to visit Omaka and a Gin distillery. Highly recommend this tour to others.

      Amazing day in Marlborough
      We had an amazing day with Pamela, who took us on a private tour to 3 amazing wineries and a lovely lunch at Allan Scott’s, followed by a visit to No. 1 “champagne” Daniel Le Bruns place and a gin tasting tray at the Gin tasting room. We even squeezed in an ice cream stop on the way home as it was so warm. Pamela was awesome and clearly very knowledgeable and experienced as she was welcomed warmly at the wineries. Our favourites were Nautillus and Forest where the tasting team were amazing. Thank you so much for a wonderful day.

      High Expectations Surpassed - Great Day with Pamela!
      My family of four spent the entire day with Pamela. It far surpassed our expectations and was definitely worth the extra money. Pamela picked us up on time at our AirBnB and we visited three wineries (Nautilus, Forrest, and Framingham), enjoying the most delicious charcuterie board at Forrest full of meats, fruits and cheeses. Then we had a delicious lunch at Withering Hills, another tasting that included delicious chocolates at No 1 and finished with a tasting and dessert at St Clair. In total, six wineries and 5 tastings. Pamela did an excellent job of blending the foodie experience with the wine tastings, something that would have been very difficult on your own. It was very clear that Pamela has built strong relationships with the wineries, we were treated “extra special” at each stop, never having to wait for seating. I can’t recommend this experience enough.

    What a wonderful day and I can honestly say I would go out with Pam again and again. Everything was so well organised but we didn’t feel rushed. Nothing was a problem for Pam and she had some great knowledge of the vineyards and area. Would highly recommend this tour with Pam. Amazing day!!

    We only had four hours to tour the Marlborough wine area in late August. Took the boat from Wellington and Pamela picked us up there. We visited 4-5 wineries (couldn't remember by the time we were done), and then popped on a plane back to Auckland from Blenheim. Pamela was awesome, she knew everyone, led us to some amazing wineries, give a running commentary on the local region, showed us the most beautiful places and generally gave us a wonderful experience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

    Our first experience of Picton was being greeted by lovely local ladies with little flower sprays for each of us....how wonderful!!
    We then met Neil our guide for the day....he was friendly, warm and very accommodating. Well done Neil.
    Off we went in our little mini van a group of 11. The van was clean, airconitioning was great and cool bottles of water for all.
    We visited 3 wonderful wineries for tasting, another winery for lunch, the chocolate factory and an unscheduled little beach stop.
    Wines were fantastic, chocolate is to die for.
    All in all fantastic value for money.
    Well done Pamela an crew.
    It was seamless and we would do it again.
    The parting gift for each guest was a lovely touch :-)
