Our tour was supposed to be by bike but thanks to the Cyclone Cook, we went by bus instead. Our terrific tour guide Andy picked us up and took us through 6 wineries. He was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining ensuring all on board had a marvellous day tasting some fantastic wines. The vintage platter at Giesen was beautiful and great... More

Karen was such a wonderful guide! She picked us up for a small group bike tours of some of the smaller wineries. We learned a lot about the area and the wines and had a lot of fun! Definitely the best way to explore all of the wonderful wineries!

As non-bikers, when our travel agent originally suggested this excursion we were a little apprehensive about drinking wine all day and going on a strenuous bike ride. We needn't have worried. This bike tour is all on flat ground in the valley. There were no hills to contend with and our guide Basil(sp?) rode at such a nice pace that... More

Hi Thanks for the review and the great summary of the tour. The biking is definitely more about a nice way to travel between the wineries rather than a hard core bike ride. Glad you enjoyed the day with us as I know Basil enjoyed his day out with you. Kind Regards Karen More

We spent a 1/2 day touring the wine country with Andy. He was absolutely amazing - probably one of the best tours that we have ever experienced. We were picked up right by the cruise ship terminal and taken out to five different wineries. Andy's knowledge of the region and the wine industry was great. He knew people at each... More

Organized as part of our Wine Experience stay at the Herzog estate Karen gave us a great half day tour. My wife is not a great Sauvignon Blanc fan (thankfully not total sacrilege) so it was fascinating to see what 4 wineries were doing with alternative white grapes like Riesling, Chardonnay, gewurtztraminer and Pinot noir. Karen was a great guide... More

We were picked up on time from Picton and taken to the start of our guided biking wine tour near Blenheim. What fun we had cycling through the vineyards and sampling many different wines at 4 cellars. Our guide was very informative and made sure everyone was ok on the bikes. Highly recommend doing this.

We had a great experience with Lucy, our biking wine guide. We were booked for a full day outing, that included lunch at one of the wineries. It was just myself, my husband and our guide, which made our experience more personable. Lucy was fun, professional and very knowledgeable about the local wines and vineyards. She took us to some...

All perfect timing. Bikes in good condition, comfortable and easy to adjust. Great location as surrounded by vineyards and no real hills so works well for lapsed cyclists. Done as a very small group so never lost the personal touch. Fitted in 4 tastings and a lovely lunch stop. Also Karen shared lots of wine and local knowledge. Thank you.

The tour was excellent. Our family of three enjoyed it so much. Cycling around the vineyards was great fun and in my opinion the best way to taste wine. Our guide was excellent and the company also very good. I would recommend this to everyone.
