Was great being picked up and dropped off at our motel door. Our driver was relaxed, informative and good value. We didn't have to do anything but enjoy the experience. The 4 wineries we went to gave a good variety of wines. It was just the right amount of time. This was our first ever wine tour and it was very enjoyable.

Brilliant day touring the vineyards. Sam was very knowledgeable regarding the area and wines. In all the years of coming down to Marlborough we had never done a wine tour and we would recommend to anyone who hasn’t. We learnt a lot about the area and it made visiting the vineyards so much more relaxing when none of us had to drive. Sam was very patient and never rushed us. We even had time to do a few extra stops that he had worked out we would like. Highly recommend

Fantastic afternoon with Frank, easy pick up from Picton and great winery experiences & chocolate shop stop. Frank was very knowledgeable about the local area and made it a memorable trip. Definitely recommend! Great thing to do on your first afternoon straight off the ferry!

We went out fishing with Mark from Sounds Connection and what trip! Awesome boat, great weather and the day just kept getting better. He was most engaging and obliging, clearly he knew his territory as we reeled in many fish and yes most we put back as the catching was what we were therefore. But we did eat well that evening! I highly recommend Mark for any fishing trip you may be considering out of Picton
