Great 3 hours. Beautiful scenery, relaxing, and learned a lot about mussel farming. Bonus was the cooked muscles we ate at the farm. Best we ever had. Unbelievably good. Great host and captain also. Definitely recommend.

The trip on Marlborough Sound included a catamaran ride to a greeen muscle farm with a catch and subsequent steaming of them, followed by a BBQ salmon on the boat accented... More

Thanks norm for a wonderful day visiting 4 wineries and staying in the shade whilst we all caught some rays - having left a snowy London we couldn't believe our good fortune. We ate at highlands and enjoyed your stories and knowledge of the wine region. Door to door service and you Never rushed us. Everyone knew norm and we... More

We were collected at our hotel by Andrew in the minibus and were taken for wine tasting at Cloudy Bay and Wirau River wineries which were both excellent. This was followed by a super lunch in Havelock (huge portions!) followed by a catamaran cruise to see the greenlip mussel farm. Our pilot Alan described the methods used in great detail... More

Visited Picton with my mum in the new year, had a fantastic mixture on the Icons tour visiting some wineries and then the sounds stopping for lunch along the way. Matt was very informative and a fantastic tour guide. Highly recommended if you visiting the south island

We did the full day small winery tour and we were not disappointed. The pace was leisurely, Gary was very knowledgeable on the Malborough area and the van was comfortable. Gary was flexible with the schedule so we weren't in any long lines or crowded venues. Don't miss this tour.

After a week on the road on the north island, we crossed to the South Island. We stayed at Picton and enjoyed a day tour to 3 wineries, more if you wanted, plus a Sounds cruise. The weather was so so but the tour was brilliant. Choice of wineries to visit, pre booked lunch at Havelock and to cap it... More

We spent a really fun and informative day with Nola, our guide. Just the 3 of us and we were tasting mainly reserve wines. Nola was very knowlegeable herself, and was always listening to our feedback about the tastings and refining her recommendations for where we should go next and what to taste. At each winery she introduced us to... More
