Visited three wineries, including Spy and two others. Tasted Sauv Blanc, Pinots and Rose wines. Well organized tour on large bus. Wineries were beautiful and we learned a lot about the region. Guide was witty and kept things going nicely.

We took a winery tour with "Your Local Chauffer" and initially we were off to a chaotic start with several winery tour companies arriving in the small parking lot by the visitor center and getting everyone sorted for their tour. After the first tasting, our small group were laughing and having a great time with our knowledgeable guide Neil. We visited a few wineries, stopped for a bit of local shopping and had lunch at the next winery. The scenery is spectacular and the wine is great. We arrived back in town in time for a walk around before returning to the ship. Read Less

Excellent tour through the famous Marlborough wine country. The private tour with only about 12 tourists enabled us to stop at 5 wineries. Had an excellent al fresco lunch at one of the wineries (own cost) and more than enough wine tasting to last for some time. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the guide, Sue. Read Less

Small bus, eight seater. Very personalised tour with a great group of passengers from the cruise. I think we had more fun on this tour then they had on the tour organised by the cruise line, smaller and more personalised. Less rushed and you did not have to deal with loads of people when turning up to the wineries. Great wines in this region, beautiful countryside, I highly recommend this company. Read Less
