Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a fantastic afternoon with Cam, our very informative guide. We had a mixed group of people on the tour, none of whom we had met beforehand, but Cam made everyone feel comfortable and included. We enjoyed the trip enormously and I’d certainly recommend it.

Amazing tour, a great variety of white wines and even a few delicious reds despite the region being not as good for the grapes (as we learned). The food at lunch was phenomenal. Darlene our tour guide was lovely and very knowledgeable

A wonderful selection of wine tastings and beautiful lunch at St Clair winery.

We would highly recommend this company for exploring the Marlborough winery region. Winemaker Cam, our driver and local guide, was great.

Fabulous tour with great, informative driver, Cam. Really like the pace .. didn't feel rushed or pressured. Visited 4 wineries and a chocolate factory. At The Happy Cow my husband opted for the beer tasting and was very glad .. he really enjoyed the red Irish Ale!

Darlene was an excellent guide with a great understanding of the wine making process. The selection of wineries was varied and lunch was great. Overall a good day out.

We had an incredible time and loved all the wineries that we visited. Cameron was very knowledgeable and nice to spend the day with! We visited five wineries which made for a long, but well-paced day. We of course had plenty of Sauvignon Blancs, but many of the wonderful other varieties of wine that Marlborough has to offer.

We spent a fabulous day in the vines with Darlene - who really knew her stuff. The wineries we visited showed a good cross-section of the region (spoiler alert, it's not *all* about the savvy) and we sampled a number of different grapes and styles. Lunch at Alan Scott was a treat, but the best was saved until last - Gibson Bridge.

Great day out hosted by Darlene. Visited five wineries, including a longer stop for lunch. The day finished with a visit to the local chocolate factory. It was a small group of eight which gave an opportunity to meet and chat to other travellers. Highly recommend.

We did the half day - but we had lunch so it was nearly a full day! Darlene was brilliant. Met some lovely people and discovered what wines we really love! So interesting and picturesque. Thrilled we did this and it’s definitely a highlight of our south island visit. Thank you!

Enjoyable trip with our guide. Visited 3 wineries and the chocolate shop. Everything was fine for a regular wine tasting tour, but this was advertised as a gourmet tour with an actual wine maker with behind the scenes access. So as a regular wine tasting tour this experience was way too much money. Again it was pleasant but over priced.
