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.

    Myself and parents enjoyed the full day wine tour last week. Our tour guide was Gavin, his knowledge and love of the industry absolutely made the experience. He is friendly and welcoming, meaning the entire group thoroughly enjoyed the whole day.

    Pick up was smooth and on time and we visited 5 wineries, one including a lunch shop.

    Thanks again Gavin, for answering all our questions and sharing your expertise and overall, for making the day FUN!

    Would highly recommend this tour and I’m sure we will be back again in the future!

    Host & driver Lisa took 10 strangers on a half day afternoon wine tour from Blenheim. She was exceptionally knowledgable & made everyone feel 'at home'. We enjoyed tastings at 3 wineries plus a visit to Makana Chocolate factory & shop. A great experience with 4 different nationalities enjoying each other's company.
    Highly recommended and very reasonable price.

    Bikes and wine - what can go wrong? LOL, nothing! This was such a perfect experience! We booked this tour through Celebrity Cruises who contracts with Explore Marlborough Wine Tours. We were picked up at the port and driven directly to the headquarters of Explore, located adjacent to Whitehaven winery - so it was here that we were outfitted with our bikes and equipment, as well as having our first (of 3) tastings. All told, we biked roughly 7.5 miles over flat paths - some paved but most are gravel, so you have to be careful on the gravel. We had two guides, one in the front of the pack and one in the back coming up the rear in case of stragglers. The tastings at all 3 wineries were lovely. Each winery was small and intimate. The first was Whitehaven, second was Gibson Bridge and the final winery was Forrest Wines. We were served an amazing lunch at Forrest, quite bountiful - as well as an excellent final tasting. At all 3 wineries, we enjoyed generous tastings and learned so much about each individual winery and the history of the Marlborough wine region. We made several photo stops on the ride, so that we could admire the vineyards, the mountains and the countryside as well as learn more about the area. So much fun, highly recommend!

    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.

    A spectacular day with Cam, a great way to spend the day and see the beautiful Marlborough region if you have limited time in the area. Cam was not only a friendly, funny and incredibly knowledgeable host, he was also incredibly accommodating of us having a non-drinker in our group and arranging pick up from our cruise ship port. Very good sized group to tour around with and get to know and a great variety of wineries visited

    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 great experience with Fiscovery Wine Tours! Toni was our guide and she was such fun. Very accommodating to special requests and made sure we were on time but never felt rushed. We went to 5 tastings and had a variety of wines. Lunch was also delicious at St Clair Winery. Fun group, great guide and all around wonderful day.

    The catamaran tour of the Sounds was just breathtaking! Our tour guide for the winery portion, Gavin, was a true delight to spend the afternoon with. Very knowledgeable and put in the extra time to make sure we got to all three wineries as well at the Chocolate Factory (our catamaran tour ran about 20 minutes late). Great 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.

    What a wonderful day and I can honestly say I would go out with Pam again and again. Everything was so well organised but we didn’t feel rushed. Nothing was a problem for Pam and she had some great knowledge of the vineyards and area. Would highly recommend this tour with Pam. Amazing day!!

    In all honesty, we cannot be certain of the name of the tour...no...it wasn't the effects of too much wine... we simply did not realise they offered so many tours.

    What we wanted was a local tour operator from Picton, where we were on a cruise ship, to take us around a range of Marlborough vineyards and to see the wonderful scenery...but not in a big group coach....and to be back in time to rejoin our ship..... We got precisely what we asked for.

    We visited St Clair, Cloudy Bay and Forrest cellar doors and our price included a good tasting at each location. We also visited VInes Village cafe and road-stop complex ,for a non-included lunch stop, the Makana chocolate factory and still had time for a scenic tour....and got back nicely in time for the shuttle back to the ship

    All this, coupled with an informative clear speaking local driver who was considerate to each passenger, (despite some language issues wit hour fellow guests - overall a really good trip and one we will repeat when next in Picton. Hope this helps.

    First I have to apologize as this is wildly overdue. Initially I reached out to Pamela via email and we were able to organize a one-day private tour for my wife and I, accompanied by our 12 year old daughter who's effectively a teenager. Trying to combine a scenic and wine tasting experience while also creating some fun for our city daughter and giving her some feel for a more rural existence.

    Well- the American phrase to best describe it, is, Pamela "knocked it out of the park". Wine tasting, beautiful vistas, farm visits for our daughter (and a special surprise even I did not know about!) And Pamela bent over backwards to organize our transfers from the airport in the AM and to Linkwater in the evening. On top of all that, it was terrifically pleasant just to spend the day with Pamela and her local knowledge.

    Phenomenal. Tremendous memories, absolutely the best money we spent in New Zealand, can't recommend Pamela March & Your Local Chauffeur highly enough. Belatedly, thank you again Pamela! We truly hope to be back.
