What you can expect

Discover the full beauty and magic of the Marlborough region with this full day winery tour. Famous for its large number of vineyards and cellar doors, travellers will enjoy a half day of guided bike tours, as well as a half day of unguided tours in the afternoon. Combing both the assistance of one of the talented tour guides, as well as the freedom to explore at your own accord, you are sure to have a day full of picturesque scenery, informative commentary and best of all a sampling of some very impressive drops of wine.

Beginning with the guided tour in the morning, the tour ventures to three of Marlborough's premium wineries travelling along country roads, river stop-banks and through vineyards providing riders with some very stunning views. Providing commentary throughout, you'll discover why this region is so famed for its wine making abilities. With an easy 6km loop, riders merely need basic fitness levels to partake. This part of the day will take approximately 3 hours to complete.

In the unguided part of this day, riders have the freedom to see and do as little or as much as they like! Equipped with a map labelling some of the best wineries close by, and your bike you're free to set your own itinerary for your afternoon of discovery!

The tour provides quality bike rides and helmets to ensure your safety is never compromised. Basic fitness levels are required for this tour, with the morning requiring you to keep up with your guide and the afternoon allowing you to proceed at your own leisure. Wear some comfortable clothing and shoes to ensure you can enjoy this whole tour, as well as consider packing a warm jumper or fleece for those cooler times.

We were guided through three popular wineries; Nautilus

We were guided through three popular wineries; Nautilus, Framington and Wairau River, and were taught about the wine and creation process. We then spent the rest of the afternoon pedalling around the vineyards on our own, a stunning experience I would recommend. All roads were bike friendly and flat with most vineyards in close proximity to each other, which made it a relaxing ride.
