What people are saying about Blenheim

we really enjoyed our afternoon tour. We visited 4 different Wineries ranging in size and presentation style, which was interesting. The wine was delicious, we had 6 tastings at each winery, which was plenty. Make sure to eat lunch before the tour as there isn't really any options for food other than crisps. Our driver Mark was very friendly and helpful, many thanks! we would definitely recommend the tour.

Interesting activity because varied with visits to the vineyards (or rather wine tasting) in the morning, small cruise in the afternoon after a decent meal on the boat, despite a little gloomy weather we had a very good day. We did not see the planned salmon farming ....

Had an enjoyable and very relaxing afternoon - a friendly and knowledgeable driver who arrived on time and went out of his way to ensure we had the best experience. Good value too - we sampled 15 different wines! Highly recommend this experience

Special mention to Lizzie at Forrest winery. Very knowledgeable and great service. Thanks to Tony our driver also, really great to get so much local information while driving.

We were totally thrilled! We never dreamed of testing so many fantastic wines. We really enjoyed this afternoon in a very relaxed atmosphere with great background knowledge.
