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

Great afternoon with Sounds Connection. It was so sad to learn that the majority of cellar doors and restaurants were closed. Whether it is permanent or not, is an unknown. We visited 3 vineyards and the Makana Chocolate Factory - probably vineyards that they wouldn't once have gone to, so new experiences. My friend and I and one other couple was t he business of the day, so tough for these businesses. Had a great day and would go with Sounds Connection again, have done several tours with them in the past.

Dear KiwiKerry53, It was great to have you join us on our Winter Warmer Wine Tour in July. We really appreciate your continued support. We’re so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the wine tour. These three wineries are definitely on our regular favourites list but happily more cellar doors are opening up again as the warm weather hits. We’re delighted to see the resilience in the local Marlborough wine industry. Thanks so much for your kind review. The Sounds Connection team

Me and my partner were on the winter warmer wine tour this week and it was absolutely fantastic, our guide Maria was very knowledgeable and friendly and the staff at the wineries were very welcoming and helpful with questions we had about their wines and process.

We went on their Winter Warmer Wine Tour the first week it launched. Our guide Maria was very friendly and had lots of knowledge about the local area. The wineries (Rock Ferry, Cloudy Bay and Whitehaven) we went to were a nice mix of smaller family wineries and larger well known ones. All the wineries welcomed us and gave us a nice mix of wines, some unique to that winery. We would definitely recommend going on this tour, the communication before the tour was great and the tour was even better!
