What our guests are saying

Great tour. The pace was good, did not feel rushed and did not spend too much time at each place. Tour guide was very knowledgeable about wine. I would definitely recommend the tour. Be sure to buy chocolate at the last stop.

What a lovely way to see Marlborough on our shore excursion. Jade Tours were recommended by a fellow passenger and they really made our day. Fantastic choice of wineries, very knowledgable guides and lovely chocolates. Can’t wait to come back.

Trikki (Cairns)

Thank you! This was a great way to see the Marlborough vineyards. We’re so glad we didn’t book the big tours on the ship. A boutique tour was so much better, more personal. Thank you – it was very enjoyable and informative and professional

The Marlborough vineyards are wonderful – and so is Jade Tours. Thank you for making our tour so special. We had a “barrel of fun” and appreciated their knowledge of the wine process. The Xmas goodies were a great idea and we were made to feel so welcome wherever we went. Definitely a memorable day for all of us.

Lucy (UK)

Jade Tours made our trip to Marlborough memorable. Both our hosts gave us a very interesting commentary as we journeyed to the vineyards. After tasting each makers product we finished at a chocolate factory before journeying back to Picton. The willingness of our hosts to satisfy us made the very reasonable cost a real bargain.

Tony (Canada)

Passar o dia experimentando ótimos vinhos e admirando maravilhosas vinhas e adegas… o que mais? Só um host super para completar! Foi um dia completo. Só um conselho: tome cuidado com o limite de garrafas que pode transportar. Adoramos!!
