My daughter and I we're lucky enough to have experienced the Wine Tour having booked the night before. We were the 1st to be picked up and then a young fun group of 6 originally from Germany. Mike our Tour guide was very knowledgeable in Marlborough's wine history as well as the region itself & our booking for lunch was lovely. Well prepared tour. Would definately point out & recommend Jade Tours to others and will use them again on our next trip South 🙂

Hi Guys. Many thanks for your support in these quiet time after Covid. It's really great to be able to get out into the wineries again - fortunately the wines haven't changed ! I'm delighted that you enjoyed your tour and hopefully will look at some Marlborough wines in the future.

This was an incredible tour! We enquired if there were places on the “wine and scenic tour” on the 24th of December and Mike replied so quickly, confirming our seats just before he had Christmas lunch! Many cruise ship travellers are a little anxious in booking shore tours independently, but I have to say Mike inspired us with confidence. The tour was one of the best of our holiday. He met us at the i-site just outside the port with a hearty welcome and a beaming smile. We visited four wineries in the Marlborough region and each of tastings did not disappoint. We had a tasty lunch (own expense) at one of the wineries. Mike proved to be exceedingly knowledgeable on all aspects of wine-making and well informed on the history of the Wairau Valley, Picton and New Zealand. His commentary as we travelled was excellent. Even after the tour he managed to retrieve my wife’s glasses which had been left behind at the i-site!

Thank you for joining me for your tour around some of the Marlborough vineyards. It's nice to know that you learnt a bit more about our wine industry and have a few stories to tell the folks back home. Many thanks for your review and enjoy the rest of your cruise.

My girlfriend and I booked a wine tour with Jade tours while we were on a short trip to the Malborough region, we both had a fantastic time. Everything from the start was so easy, the tour guide emailed us and arranged a pick up at our hotel. We are totally new to the wine scene with very little knowledge but Jade tours totally changed that. Mike's (tour guide) knowledge on wine in general is amazing but his knowledge on wine from the Malborough region is something else. We visited 6 different winery's and were all absolutely fantastic. At each property Mike gave us loads of information on the company and the wine but also lots of little tails which is what makes having a wine tour. Anyone can go to these winery's to sample the wine but you dont get any of the information we got today from Mike. Absolutely 1st class service and would definitely recommend to anyone in the region as a no 1 thing to do.

Many thanks for your very enthusiastic review. It was a pleasure to meet you guys and as usual, it was great fun giving you some background info on our wine industry and the wines that we produce. Thank you for your company and maybe the next time that you are on the hunt for a bottle, you'll consider something with NZ on the label !.

Mike, our guide, gave us an experience we could not have had on our own. He picked us up at our Airbnb, discussed our wine preferences and expectations, and then selected places that delighted and surprised us. He is so knowledgeable about winemaking, and shared histories of the wineries and the region. We tasted fabulous wines and learned so much. Tour is fun, comfortable, personal and affordable. Highly recommended!

We spent the day with Mike gaining a fantastic insight into the history of the Marlborough wine country and learning a lot about the beautiful wines produced here. Mike created an easy going, friendly atmosphere and we tasted wines from 5 vineyards that have made this district famous. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if you love the Marlborough wines as much as I do!

Mike. Thank you for a fun day of wine tasting. You were knowledgeable on all aspects of wine making and familiar with the local wineries. I came on this tour by myself, and at no time did this feel awkward or uncomfortable. My husband did the same tour a week later (we have young kids) and also had a wonderful day with you. A memorable experience. Thank you. Paula

This full day tour was by far the highlight of our trip to Blenheim! As a group of 4, Mike made the day a fantastic experience. listening to the wines we each liked and planning ahead with booking a great spot for lunch, we visited 5 wineries and even squeezed in a brewery stop off for the boys on the way home. Mike had a wealth of knowledge on the region and the tour run with a really easy flow / relaxed vibe to it. We never felt rushed and had time for each vineyard to soak in the day. An absolute standout day - highly recommend!

We didn't want to do a tour organised by our cruise ship and therefore choose this small group tour. We were picked up from the Visitor Centre in Picton and our guide gave us commentary all the way to the first winery. At the various wineries she gave us an insight before handing over to the winery staff who ran us through copious amounts of tastings. We were never in a rush and taken back to the ship well in time. Great day out with Sue!

Had a fantastic time on the wine tour. Mike was very obliging and really knows his wine. He had a great rapport with all the vineyards we went to and his suggestions were spot on. Look forward to doing another trip in the future. Highly recommended trip! Thanks Mike

My husband and I did the full day wine tour with Mike and two other couples and had a fantastic time. Mike was a wonderful guide, as he is was extremely knowledgeable and also well-organized, and had a good sense of humor. The day itself was very full, as we visited six wineries and had tastings at each, as well as lunch at the fourth stop, yet it was a relaxed and fun day from pickup at 10AM until dropoff after 4PM. Highly recommend.
