    What to Expect
    Disembark your ship in Picton and meet your guide at a central meeting point. With your small group of 12 passengers or fewer, climb into a comfortable tour vehicle and take off through the picturesque areas of Blenheim and Picton on your way to the Marlborough Region and Omaka.

    Make your initial stop at the Omaka Aviation Heritage Museum, home to a standout collection of WWI and WWII fighter planes and some early 'flying machines.' If you're hungry, you can purchase lunch or snacks at the museum's restaurant. 

    Embark on a winery tour of the Marlborough region, including both boutique, family-run wineries and larger production vineyards. You'll stop at two or three, depending on time, to stroll through the barrel rooms, the vineyards, and learn how the grapes are processed. Wine tastings include the region's famous Sauvignon Blancs. You'll also taste artisan chocolates at a nearby factory. 

    Make the trip back to Picton for drop-off in time to catch your departing ship.

    We had heard that this display was well worth setting a morning aside for. And it was. So much to see and displays from axis as well as allied airfares. Gives one a good sense of the technology development and the human side of air warfare. Not only were the exhibits outstanding

    Thank you for taking the time to post such a positive review. I am glad you enjoyed yourself at the Omaka Aviation Heritage Museum, which is one of the most popular museums in the Marlborough region. There is definitely a lot to see and learn regarding the allied planes that flew during WW1 and WW2. And yes, for an additional fee there is even an opportunity to do a 'joy ride' in a number of historic airplanes for an exhilarating flight experience! This museum is definitely a must-see attraction when visiting Marlborough. Thanks again for the great review and we hope you visit New Zealand again some time soon!
