Our tour guides are locals who love Marlborough and Marlborough Wine, and they will provide you with interesting and witty commentary throughout the day.

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.

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.

What is the Group Size?
On our standard Shore Excursions Tours, we take groups of up to 10 ( occasionally 11) pax.   But on our private tours we have the numbers limited to 6 pax so you can book your own group for a brilliant day out in Marlborough.
Will we visit Cloudy Bay?

Our very famous winery Cloudy Bay is located in the heart of Marlborough Wine Country.  If you want to visit there for a tasting then you have to be in a group of 6 or less. If this is somewhere you would like to visit please let us know so we can book early to avoid disappointment.  It is very busy on Cruise Ship Days so we cannot guarantee that we can get a tasting spot we can book a spot there are limited numbers available.
