Excellent, knowledgeable host and driver Mike accommodated our last minute booking and picked us up at the Blenheim Airport at 10am when our flight was delayed and we were unable to reach our hotel pick-up place in time. We were a total of 7 in a comfortable van that could have held squeezed in 5 more. We were pre-booked and expected at Nautilus, Spy Master and Framingham (and sampled 4 wines at each) before stopping for lunch at Allan Scott. Lunch was on our own dime. It was a relaxed pace and the hosts at each winery gave us much information about their wines. No hard sell whatsoever. We were 3 couples and a single guy, and got to know each other superficially as you do when fate throws you together on a tour like this. I enjoyed the 6-1/2 hr day and loved eating grapes off the vines, as we were allowed to do. IMHO, the best grapes were far and away the sauvignon blanc at Cloudy Bay, which I walked over to while waiting for lunch to be prepared. Bravo Jade and Mike!

Lovely air conditioned mini bus, collected from motel on time by Mike who put us instantly at ease. Just us and 1 other couple. Visited 5 vineyards, all very nice and lovely wines and informative. Mike very knowledgeable. Fab lunch. Mike waited patiently for us and returned us as suited us. All in all a lovely fun day and very educational. We felt we more than got our money's worth and would recommend.

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.
