Choose a 'Martinborough in a Day' tour and take the stress out of drink/driving. Fully hosted, visit four vineyards, enjoy a lovely vineyard lunch and visit an Olive Grove or take the 'Pinot to Palliser Bay' tour for something different. This tour goes to the fishing village of Ngawi and the seal colonies at Cape Palliser. Enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch on the beach and a beer or coffee at the historic Lake Ferry Hotel. All tours are conducted in luxury vehicles hosted by a local who knows the region intimately. This is your opportunity to go behind the scenes, meet winemakers and producers not normally available to the general public, while at the same time tasting the fantastic produce and wines of the region.

Our guide was extremely knowledgable and added depth to the brief info given by each individual vineyard . A private minibus met is and whisked us around 5 vineyards where we had 5 wines at each . We finished at lunchtime at a great spot overlooking a vineyard . Half a day was enough for us .

Six of us from the US toured Martinborough in February. Our tour guide, Jill, who doubles as a vineyard owner, led us on a wonderful day touring various cellar doors. Jill provided a thorough history of the development of vineyards in this region. The tour was customized to our requests and the day wrapped up on the lovely deck of... More

Visited four wineries for tastings. All personnel involved were friendly and helpful as was the tour company itself. Not the best wine area in New Zealand but an enjoyable afternoon out.

Our guide Trinity was awesome and we had a great day and we're able to visit 6 wineries. It's nice to have someone around who is knowledgeable about the area and you don't have to worry about safety. We met really cool people along the way. The only thing was, is that it is pretty expensive and we thought lunch... More

Wines were for me probably one of the most important things to visit New Zealand. Because of my schedules I decided to make my wine tour as easily as possible. I contacted Martinborough Wine Tours well in advance and the on day tour was easily arranged via e-mail. The service and all the advices given were accurate and friendly. I... More

We booked a half day tour while visiting the very charming Martinborough. Trinity picked us up st our hotel, and there was another couple who joined us. Five wineries had been selected, but seeing our we progressed, Trinity changed it to four, rather than rush us. She also arranged for us to get some lunch along the way, as we'd... More

We were a family of 7 that took the afternoon wine tour in Martinborough. Not all of us were big wine drinkers, but we learned a lot about the wineries and the different wines that the area had to offer. One of our passengers was slightly under the weather and there was special accommodation made for her. We also were... More
