Marlborough Guided Wine Tours

If you are looking for things to do while staying in Picton or Blenheim, a tour of Marlborough wineries makes an unforgettable day out. The Marlborough wine trail covers an area surrounding the main township of Blenheim and includes dozens of excellent wineries, most of which produce our world famous Sauvignon Blanc.

Choose from our Marlborough wine tours by bike or by car, with expert guides for a personal experience and unforgettable day out.

Our tours include pick up and drop off from your accommodation, a winery restaurant lunch (Deluxe  tours only), the benefit of the local knowledge from our guides, and an Explore Marlborough drink bottle to take away with you as a momento of your day.

Explore Marlborough is small enough and flexible enough that we can also organise a personalised tour to suit your itinerary.

 What others have to say

  • "A fantastic cycling tour around some fabulous Marlborough vineyards, taking you off the beaten track. Karen is a fantastic guide, and the full day option is in particular a good option, especially with a fabulous lunch in the middle of it. Highly recommended,"

    Highly recommended

  • "We had a totally fab day with Karen on our bicycles. She is super friendly, knowledgeable and easy going, and sets the tone just right for the day. Wine tasting really is best done on bike, and in this setting it is simply stunning. Super professional yet fun tour- we would do it again and will certainly recommend to our friends."
