Very good value for money

Very knowledgeable drivers who were always on time. On the way home, Warren dropped us just up the road from the i Centre upon our request. Good way to visit all of the wineries that we wanted to visit, rather than a set schedule. Few freebies thrown in from venues as we had the hop on hop off wristband which the drivers reminded us as you get off (cloudy heads towards the end, as you can imagine). Would recommend to anyone.

Great Option

Hop on Hop off was the perfect option for us! We arrived later in the day to. Blenheim, we’re still able to book and didn’t have to worry about a thing. It was just nice for both of us to kick back and let someone else do the driving. A really nice group of options for everyone’s taste.

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
