We only required a shuttle from the ferry terminal to our motel - we found the service friendly, great value for money and realible. I am sure their tours would be great but can't comment on one personally

They were supposed to pick us up in Blenheim at 0900 for a 1000 arrival at the Picton Ferry. Scrambled to get to the CBD to catch a taxi at 0935 which added another $30. Would not recommend.
