Shore Excursion – Full Day Marlborough Wine Region Tour from Picton

Shore Excursion - Full Day Marlborough Wine Region Tour from Picton

Explore New Zealand’s premier wine region on this full day tour from Picton.


6 Hours


Your full day tour begins with pick up from your Picton I site usually at 9.30am (although this may change depending on your cruise ship arrival time). Traveling by comfortable air conditioned minivan, set out to explore the Marlborough wine region and admire the views as you drive through the rolling vineyards. Our tour guides are locals who love Marlborough and Marlborough Wine, and they will provide you with interesting and witty commentary throughout the day.

Stop along the way to visit 5 of Marlborough’s best wineries, soak up the scenery as you stroll through the vineyards, and learn more about New Zealand wine as you sample a variety of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling wines to name a few. You can enjoy a beautiful lunch or platter at one of the wineries – at your expense. (Time dependant if your cruise ship departs early), and we will stop at the boutique Chocolate factory for a sweet sample before returning to Picton.

After a thorough introduction to New Zealand wine, we will ensure you are returned to the Picton I Site in time for the shuttle buses returning to your cruise 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.
