A leisurely way to visit many wonders of the South

A fabulous opportunity to visit and try the many fine wines of Marlborough in celebration of our girlfriends birthday, not to mention a hearty luncheon at Cork and Keg with having saved the best for last, Makana Chocolate Factory :D all the way from Pick Up at Picton all the way to Blenhiem return, our driver was awesome and totally patient with us ( my apologies I was overwhelmed with the great opportunity of someone driving us around such a beautiful country side I forgot to get his name :( ) Thank you again for the fabulous service, we will most definitely be doing this again :D

Hop On Hop Off Wineries

The discount we got on bookme made this outstanding value. Driver was really engaging, good conversation throughout the journey. Very knowledgeable. Bus is comfortable and there is plenty of space. All in a really good way to see the area and would definately recommend. You get about 40/45 minutes at each if you plan to get the next bus, which is long enough, or double up if you want to relax a bit. We stopped at Framington, which was excellent and a really nice space. The Vines Village, great stop for a coffee and the cheesecake was one of the highlights of the day! Moa brewing; decent beer, we had planned on eating but the food truck doesnt take non NZ card. Food looked and smelled really good though, but heads up - take cash if you want to eat here. Not an official stop but we went to Cloudy Bay which is amazing, across the road from the Allan Scott stop. Finished at Saint Clair, again really nice place, really good. All in highly recommended.

Good way to get around winery without a car

The Hop on Hop off tour provides a good selection of destinations, and we can decide exactly how much time we would like to spend at each stop. One thing to note, they have changed Highfield Wine to Fromm Organic Wine. Fromm is a must, the wine is exceptional.
