    What to Expect
    If you can't decide between going guided or self guided then what about a tour that does both! Our half and half full day biking wine tour provides you with a guide for the morning but then allows you to go it alone for the afternoon and do a bit of exploring by yourself. Spend the morning on our half day guided biking wine tour. Your knowledgeable and experienced guide will talk to you about the history of the area and the background to growing and producing wine, but the highlight will be the visit to three of our favorite Marlborough wineries to taste some of the best wines of the region.You will visit three wineries in the morning and then you are free to go it alone for the afternoon. Your guide will give you a map and be able to give you some pointers on where to cycle and even better what wines to try based on what you have enjoyed tasting on the morning tour. Enjoy your afternoon cycling the vineyards by yourself and then meet us back at our base at the end of the afternoon and we take you back to your accommodation.

    Peddle along flat, easy terrain that is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.  All morning winery tasting fees included.

    Free hotel pickup and drop-off from Blenheim and Renwick hotels. Picton pick up is available but incurs a $40 pick up per person charge. Up to 8 people per guided tour.Your guide will plan the route ensuring you bike from winery to winery past stunning vineyards, allowing you to take your time and enjoy the beauty of the Marlborough wine region.

    You will learn a little of the 

    You do not need to be an experienced cyclist to enjoy this bike tour. The pace is leisurely and the terrain is gentle, ensuring easy riding no matter what your skill level.

    We will pick you up from your Blenheim or Renwick accommodation (approx 9.30am) and drop you off (approx 4.30pm) so that you are free to enjoy the day to the full.

    Our family of six took a half day guided tour that included visits to three wineries and lunch at one as well. It was the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful countryside and sample some very delicious wines! They selected three very different wineries which made it interesting.

    We had half a day free and Andy picked us up from our motel and took us out to the bike depot where we were fitted out with bikes, helmets, safety vest, bike lock, map and recommendations for our self guided tour. Bikes were good quality and easy to ride and the tracks were good

    Hi Thanks for the great review. I hope the rest of your trip went well. The sunblock recommendation is a good one as we have been having a great summer so far and it has been pretty easy to get burnt with very little sun time. For anyone that does forget their sunblock we have plenty here at our base that people are welcome to use. Thanks again. Kind Regards Karen

    Hamish was full of information for us on the local area, both wine related and otherwise. Comfy bikes, excellent area for biking with flat terrain. First half took us to 3 lovely locally owned wineries who greeted us like long lost friends and excellent tasting experiences.

    We arrived in Marlborough the day after Cyclone Gita hit so it was a bit up in the air regarding out tour. Owners assured me the day before that we'd be taken care of regardless. We woke to blue skies and our friendly driver picking us up at our remote Bach down the road from
