We really love the Marlborough wines, and this tour is an excellent way to get to know quite a lot of them, and get background info on the way!
Our driver, Alan, did good commentary on the way, if sometimes a bit difficult to understand, but then again we are non-native speakers.
The wineries included in the tour were an excellent mix, our favourites were Hunter's and certainly Cloudy Bay.
Lunch at Allen Scott was just perfect.
What's really great about this tour is the pick-up and drop-off right at your B&B/hotel, making the experience as hassle-free as possible, especially after the generous offerings at the tastings!

Yesterday I treated my daughter, son-in-law and their 9 year old daughter to an afternoon of wine tasting in the Marlborough wine district. We were charged a partial fee for the grand daughter (more than 50% of the adult fee). Not one vineyard offered her as much as a glass of water let alone juice, crisps or anything. The wonderful bus driver and tour guide, Frank dropped the others off then took our family to Makana Chocolate Factory. If it hadn't been for the thoughtfulness of the driver, Sierra would have been totally overlooked. Perhaps the vineyards ought to think about the eventuality of a child or non-drinker passing their way.
Thank you Frank!
