Mike was extremely knowledgeable about wines, the wine industry in NZ and around the world and provided very interesting anecdotes re the history of the development of the Marlborough region wine industry. The quality of the wines we tasted were exceptional. We had a very enjoyable tour and we thoroughly recommend this tour.

This was a well worthwhile wine tour. We were lucky enough to be the only ones on the tour so Mike our driver was very open to what wineries we wanted to go to. He was well informed of the wineries In the area and well informed of wine in general. Well worth the trip.

Had a lovely time on this tour, our guide, Mike, was very accommodating and knowledgeable, the wineries and tastings were great, we came away with a few bottles, as well as a few recommendations of things to try later in the week! Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a relaxing experience around the Marlborough wineries.
