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.

An interesting and good fun day getting to understand the history of the Marlborough wine district and some of the local vine yards. Tasted some great wines and thoroughly enjoyed the company of our 'water skiing campion' guide Peter

Hi Thanks for the review. I know that Peter enjoyed his day out with you as well. He is so busy water skiing at this time of year we don't get the benefit of all his knowledge and experience guiding very often. You were some of the lucky few. Glad you had a great day. Kind Regards Karen More

We took a biking tour with Karen from the Explore Marlborough Wine Tours on a stunning sunny day. Karen shared a lot of brilliant information about Marlborough while taking us from one winery to the other. It was a great way to take wine tours to a whole new level: Easy biking, lot of knowledge and delicious wine. Perfect!

Explore Marlborough Wine Tours was exceptional as Karen Walsh guided our small group via quality bikes through some of the vast Marlborough Wine region on a half day tour. She would stop periodically a various vineyards and explain the soils of the region and the various varietals of grapes being produced. She talked about the history of Wine production in... More

We had an amazing full day tour on bike with Kaya and Andy as our guides. We visited 6 different places, Framingham, Bladen, Nautilus, Wairau River, Huia and No. 1. They were all very welcoming and I think we got to try maybe 40 different wines, mostly white wine, some rosè, red pinot noir and brut. Fantastic to bike along... More

Really fantastic experience!! Our guide, Lucy, was super knowledgable about the area and took us to places she genuinely thought we would love. All the wineries were really beautiful, and we were able to try some that we had never tried before! All the wineries we went to (6 in total) were delicious and suited to exactly what we like....
