Overview

Tours start at $95 per person. Ranging from half day afternoon tours to our exclusive 'Martinborough in a Day' tour. Take the stress out of drink/driving as all our tours are fully hosted. Our Martinborough in a day tour takes you to four vineyards, enjoy a lovely vineyard lunch and visit an Olive Grove or take the 'Pinot to Palliser Bay' tour for something different. This tour goes to the fishing village of Ngawi and to the iconic Lighthouse at Cape Palliser. Enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch on the beach and a beer or coffee at the historic Lake Ferry Hotel. All tours are conducted in luxury vehicles hosted by a local who knows the region intimately. This is your opportunity to go behind the scenes, meet winemakers and producers not normally available to the general public, while at the same time tasting the fantastic produce and wines of the region.

We had a great afternoon with Roger as our host. We saw two larger and two smaller wineries and tasted a variety of local wines. Most enjoyable and informative. I highly recommend it.
