Driven around by very knowledgeable guide Sam with six others and visited four wineries in a half day tour. Also taken to a chocolate factory as an added bonus. Lots of tastings so great option if you do not want to drive yourself or cycle.

Only a short time at the wineries, it felt a bit rushed.

Only reasonable value for money - no cellar door specials, wine quite expensive.

Great day, also thanks to a good tour group. Several wineries and guide knew his local history plus a good sense of humour is important in a guide.

We did a half day wine tour with Sounds Connection out of Picton and visited 4 wineries. Good fun and the guide taught us a lot about the wine industry and local area.

A brilliant day was spent in the Marlborough wine region. I knew it would be difficult to impress a group of 'wine-o's' from South Australia but you did it. We were fortunate enough to have the wonderful Dean as our tour guide and he was excellent; full of mischief but very informative about the local area and especially the wine industry. There was even an opportunity for some shopping! A great day out, thank you.

Good to see 4 wineries in the region, they could have given us more tips on how to taste.

We did a wine tour in a small group. It was very relaxed and flexible. The small group made it feel like we had individualised service and it didn't feel like we were being shoehorned around in a big tourist group.
