Cruise Ship Half Day tour from Picton NZ

Cruise Ship Half Day Tour From Picton NZ

Traveling by comfortable air conditioned minivan, set out to explore the Marlborough wine region


5.5 Hours


Explore New Zealand’s premier wine region on this half-day tour from Picton or Blenheim. Visit four different wineries in the Marlborough wine region, stroll through the vineyards, and sample wines such as Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. This small-group tour is limited to 11 people and it tailored to the needs of people coming off the Cruise Ships who may have different timing requirements to our standard daily tours. Our tour guides are locals who love Marlborough and Marlborough Wine, and they will provide you with interesting and witty commentary throughout the day.

One of the stops on the tour is for lunch ( at your expense). We usually have time for a quick stop at the Boutique Chocolate Factory before returning you to Picton.

These tours are designed for Cruise ship passengers as we are well aware of your time requirements and we will ensure you are returned to Picton in time to catch the shuttle bus back to your ship.

What’s included

Visit 4 Cellar doors and the chocolate factory. Enjoy lunch at one of our beautiful winery restaurants ( at your cost, time permitting)

Please note

We are not able to come into the port so if you are on the larger cruise ships you will need to catch the shuttle buses that are put on to take you out of the port to the Picton I Site ( 5 minutes), or if you are on the smaller cruise ships that berth closer in behind the Ferry Terminal, you will need to ‘follow the blue line’ a short 5 minute stroll to the Picton I Site where all tour operators will be waiting for you.

Additional info

What is the Group Size?
We take groups of up to 10 ( occasionally 11) pax.  It’s the perfect size group to allow you to get to know one another, your wine tour guide and your winery host while trying the brilliant wines of Marlborough.
