Jade Wine Tours was wonderful! Sue was our guide - very knowledgeable about the wineries and their offerings - as well as little stories about the wine-makers, etc. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour. The highlight of our visit to Marlborough! Excellent personable and personal tour guide. Was not pleased about the booking fees by this site - they're foreign, and on top of my credit charges there was a foreign currency trade charge. Also, when the charge came up, it was not a name I recognised - needs to be transparent!
There are so many opportunities to visit vineyards and cellars it’s a good idea to get a guide unless you are a competent wine buff. We chose to have a half day tour and found the whole trip thoroughly enjoyable, our guide Mike was very knowledgable and provided us with a lot of local knowledge on the vineyards we visited and tailored the selection of cellars to suite our tastes in wine. There was no pressure to buy wine and we received all the information necessary to choose wine and export back to UK if required.
We had a brilliant time on our half day wine tour with Sue. She took us to a great selection of vineyards plus a chocolate factory, shared insightful knowledge and facts throughout the day and was overall a fantastic host. We were very lucky to find ourselves the only ones on our tour - thank you to Sue and Jade for making it a special day during our trip to NZ.
We had an unexpected private tour with Mike as our host/driver. We had a great day and really enjoyed our time at the museum. Mike sorted out our lunch at Wither Hills, which was very nice and then chose several more wineries for tastings for our specific preferences. We were collected and dropped off from our B&B and even went to a chocolate making place.
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.
