    We had a fabulous day exploring a variety of vineyards with our guide, Keith. Being winter it was very quiet, so we were able to take our time and chat with the various cellar door staff. The whole experience was fun and relaxed. I would highly recommend Jess and Dean’s wine tour.

    Ended up on this one instead of the short afternoon one, due to booking numbers on the day. But it was great, got to sit and bird watch on an island and saw my first native nz Kākāriki. Also I appreciate that they did their best to try and locate dolphins - though I think all the boats out that day probably kept them away!

    Just returned from another brilliant cruise (our 3rd) on the Picton Mail Boat, run by Beachcomber Cruises.
    The very experienced, Captain Phil, kept us entertained with his many stories, “mostly true” and history of the area that we were visiting. It’s always amazing to see the people who live out in the very scenic and sometimes isolated parts of Queen Charlotte Sound.
    Fabulous scenery and a very entertaining and informative afternoon.

    Excellent service and Mikes knowledge was impressive. A beautiful day made the day one to remember. The lunch was excellent at Wither Hills and the Omaka museum was well worth the visit.

    Having done a few wine tours before, I found the tour that we took better than most. Dean, our tour guide, made the whole experience more like an outing with friends than a formal tour. He is very knowledgeable to the point of not needing much input from the various Winery owners/staff. I would recommend this experience to anyone - even for the less mobile. Great half day tour.

    These guys were AMAZING!! My friend and I booked a delivery cruise only and Britney from reception suggested we did the walk as well because it’s so beautiful and she even let me borrow her hike shoes since my shoes weren’t fit for hike. Everyone in the crew are so super friendly!
    We ended up having the best day, in the most beautiful place, with these awesome team! Thanks so much for everything!
    Will be coming back! Highly recommend these guys 👏🙏

    “Explore Marlborough Wineries By Bike” was a ship tour offered to us while in the Port of Picton. We tend to opt for a small group tour while in port, but this caught our eye. It would be a bit physical, scenic and at the same time some fun comparing New Zealand’s wine country to our own here in California. This tour had to be one of the best wine tours we’ve been on. Our guide, Andy picked us up at the ship in a comfortable small van, and narrated along the way as we drove inland to where “Explore Marlborough Wine Tours” has their gear and office. When we arrived we were all able to outfit ourselves with the correct height bicycle, set the correct seat height, get situated with correct helmets, learn the gears, and given safety vests. The bicycles were like new and top notch with a basket for your belongings and a bottle of water & a treat. We went over all safety instructions, and tested our bicycles prior to commencing our ride. We had three really nice winery stops and really enjoyed the ride. The narrative by Andrew when we stopped in the vineyards was so great and super informative with the field harvesting process. Our last stop on the bike ride was at Mahi Winery, which was our favorite. Beautiful grounds, beautiful architecture, beautiful wines! Unbelievably hospitable and generous with their wine, and the fantastic lunch that was prepared by their fabulous chef “Marcia”. I’m still trying to replicate the potato green bean dish, the corn with cucumber salad, and the recipe used for the salmon. Oh my gosh it was incredible! After the fantastic lunch, we all jumped in the van and drove back to our starting point for anyone that wanted to purchase wine before driving back to the ship. Sometimes you wonder about your choices of excursions, but at the end this was a no brainer and one of our favorite excursions. We highly recommend this tour, and would probably do it again if it was in our backyard.

    Catamaran Cruise around the sound was great, despite the cloudy, rainy weather! Great views! Wine tour with Phil was AMAZING! Lunch at Saint Claire’s vineyard was fantastic - superb food! - and Kelly was friendly but very knowledgeable regarding the wines. Visits to Framingham, Nautalis and Whitehaven wineries all very informative and with great hosts, wines and info. Highlight of the day was Phil...what a star! Nothing too much hassle and full of excellent info and knowledge. Highly recommend this tour.

    What a wonderful way to spend a day. Lots of stories and information from “captain” Ed and his trusty helper Jordan who had lots of Mail and provisions to deliver in difficult sea conditions.

    It was very wet and windy so we didn’t see much wildlife but it certainly added to the fun and sense of adventure. Well worth doing!

    Just being in the Marlborough Sounds & hearing some real stories from a local family, delivered with humour.
    The weather wasn't helpful, being very cloudy and cool, however, we all still thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and hope to return to do a different cruise. Learning more about mussel farming & King salmon was most interesting..

    Two of us went on this trip and loved it. Great staff, lots of information available and great to be a part of what's going on in the Sounds with picking up people and dropping them off in different spots. The boats always arrived when they said they would and lovely to have staff ask how your day tramping etc had been when they pick you up. Nice to have the option of going to see Motuara island and the birds.

    Booked a winter trip during school holidays and so glad we did. Lady at checkin was super friendly and helpful. Staff on train were lovely. Train was very comfortable and views were wonderful. Plus lots of seal spotting and gorgeous dusk light. One tip - if you want dinner on the train, order early and ask them to put aside for you for later as options sell out. We all really enjoyed the trip - even our kids who are teens. Definitely recommend.
