  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.
Learn more about our review moderation.
*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    Short walk from cruise port. Nice overview of what we might see during cruise before leaving. Nice boat ride on queen charlotte sounds which is much larger and more branching than I previously thought. Andy slowed the boat so we were able to stand outside along the sides to view sea birds and Alice explained what we were seeing. Arrived at Motuara bird sanctuary and had a walk up the hill led by Alice who was great to point out flora and fauna during the walk up. Since it is an out and back hike you could lag behind and then catch up with the rest of the group on their way down although you would miss the spectacular views from the top. Andy, the great boat captain, was waiting to load us up and take us back to the dock. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see dolphins or whales but after all it is wildlife and not a zoo so no promises about what you will see. Did see many birds while at the sanctuary. Besides a hot drink on the way back we were also treated to a local Pinot Gris sample. Arrived back in plenty of time to reboard the cruise ship.

    We had an amazing afternoon. Wine, food and service ,100percent,
    I wonder about having toddlers on board though. My choice would be no kids. That’s just me , when we are relaxing with wine etc.

    Magnificent flight there and back with super experienced pilot who cares for everybody's safety comfort and enjoyment. Excellent lunch and plenty of time to relax in the superb resort's grounds. A splurge worth splurging

    Overall I’ve given it a 4/5 as stunning views of sound and lunch at Lodge beautiful; awesome choice; awesome locale; service etc. the desire is they drop you off at around 11.15 and collect at 3:15pm which is a LONG time if weather not good for swimming or your not wanting to go for a walk from Lodge. I would not go in this tour again because of that fact only.

    Kayaking was was sooo fun it was a windy day but we stayed in the bays mostly so we were protected. We had Rachel as our guide and she seemed kind and nolageable guiding us to see stingrays, eagle rays, Reef Stars, Sea cucumbers, pi shags, Royal Spoonbill, and many more amazing animals. I loved it and would highly recommend to others when in the Sounds and Picton

    I am so sorry it has taken me so long to review this amazing tour as it really was the highlight of our New Zealand trip. We were picked up by Tanya, our WONDERFUL guide from Marlborough Tour Company. Tanya is so knowledgeable (especially as she previously worked at Cloudy Bay, friendly, helpful and happy to wait while we take photos or take photos of us! We adore her!

    We start at Cloudy Bay where we sample fizzy, white and red before a look round the winery (and some shopping of course!). We then head to Framingham Winery where we sample six different wines before being taken to Picton to join the Odyssey and Captain Nick for a BBQ lunch followed by seafood cruise. As we sail around the Marlborough Sounds Captain Nick tells us all about the area before we moor up and he treats us to locally caught salmon and Greenshell mussels on the BBQ, all accompanied by Sauvignon Blanc obvi! We see lots of wildlife and even get to feed the local ducks and fish!

    Tanya, Nick and stewardess Rhonda cannot be more friendly, helpful, kind and knowledgable. We really recommend this trip!

    Amazing day with Darleen we enjoyed the tour enormously. The knowledge she had was first class and we did learn a lot but in a fun way! All stops were great, the passion demonstrated by the employees at each stop was first class.

    We have done similar tours all around the word and this was certainly one of the best if not the best. We couldn’t recommend Hop and Grape any more. Cloudy bay and Forrest wines were particularly stand out and lunch at St Clare was beautiful and good value.

    We had a wonderful time. Our guide Pamela was accommodating and very knowledgeable. She came up with a great itinerary, but allowed us to add in a few things. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

    It wasn't the best of weather but you can't always plan for that. This tour is great value for money and we had the island to ourselves, maybe because it was overcast and windy. The walk to the top was a good workout for my unfit better half and my unfit self. the views are great but there aren't many stops along the way to sit and try to sight birds. The best sightings we got were at the beginning of the the trail. The boat arrived back on time and we took the option of a free add on to lunch at Furneaux Lodge. This time the boat was quite late in due to weather but we still arrived back in Picton at a decent hour. A tour offering great value for money.
