We took a private tour with Darlene who was absolutely wonderful, knowledgeable and so accomodating! She took the time to really understand the wines we like, and took us to places that matched our taste! The spot she chose for lunch was lovely and included a tasting while we waited! Not to mention, Darlene drove to and from our camper van in Rarangi and even accommodated a stop at 4 square so that we could purchase some groceries for dinner!! Darlene was an amazing guide, and we are so grateful for our wonderful experience. We will certainly rebook if we return and will recommend Hop n Grape to all our friends and family! Thank you for an awesome day!

This was a memorable experience that almost never happened. I booked a group tour for the only day I was to be in Marlborough. There weren’t enough people booked. Rather than canceling outright, Cameron and Darlene offered me a private tour. Darlene guided me to 5 wonderful wineries based on my preferences and shared her vast knowledge of the Marlborough wine culture and winemaking. She even stopped to fulfill my strange request to get a photo of sheep in a vineyard! It was a lovely day!

Really easy to see why this tour has almost entirely 5 star reviews. The whole day was brilliant all thanks to Darlene. What a perfect host for the day. Sure; you can save a bit of money and visit the cellar doors yourself. You could get a cab, appoint a designated driver or some days there is a hop on/off bus. Do that, though, and you missout on so much! Darlene knew shed loads about wine, how it's made, who produces it, tasting notes, styles; you name it she knew the answer to our every question. We toured a production facility, visited a cellar and had amazing cellar door experiences enhanced because Darlene had such good relationships with everyone we came across. I can't recommend Hop n Grapes any higher.
