Marlborough is a region at the top of the South Island of New Zealand, it has a temperate climate and is known for its Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir wines. The largest town is Blenheim a short distance away is Picton and Havelock both offering access by boat or road to the stunning Marlborough Sounds with many types of accommodation available from resorts, luxury bed and breakfasts to holiday homes and baches for rent. Much of Marlborough is made up of high country and valleys which reach from the sea to the mountains. Blenheim is the gateway to Molesworth Station-New Zealand's largest high country station. Visitors have a wide variety of things to do in the region - aside from our own sightseeing tours, which encompass the beautiful Awatere Valley and high country farms and stations of rural Marlborough.

Hi Geoff and Lee,
I found the Molesworth Heritage tour excellent. I expected impressive scenery and to learn more about the history of the area but what I experienced well exceeded my expectations. The tour was very well planned giving our small group time to enjoy our surroundings and to absorb that which our excellent driver/guide,Trevor, had to tell us about the fauna and flora and the history of the area. I learnt a great deal.
There where many highlight but one which I particularly enjoyed was to meet with the Stevenson family, of Upcot Station, and to chat over a mug of genuine billy tea. That’s kind of encounter is probably only possible if travelling in a small group.
I have been recommending your company to friends and acquaintances.
Kind regards from a well satisfied customer.- Ann WarnerDec 2014
Thankyou so much for the cd of our trip. It was marvelous. Trevor was very informative about the families that had settled on Molesworth. South Island hospitality is alive and well. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip- Carrolyn WaughDec 2014
Just wanted to say we have really had a fabulous time on your cycle trip It's been the most awesome cycling ( despite us being being rather slow) And we have really appreciated the great people that Geoff and Peter are and are grateful for their care, stories and humour. It's also been illuminating and quite amazing meeting the people who live and work in the valleys : totally eye opening
Please convey all our thanks to Geoff and Peter and also to you for organizing
I seriously will be back next year with the family.- Chern. Four Day Cycle TourFour Day Cycle Tour March 2014
My Mum & I thoroughly enjoyed our recent tour with you. We loved the variety. You packed so much into those 4 days but it was still very relaxing. The food was fabulous. Loved the two restaurants we went to in Hanmer & Kaikoura – both top quality.
It was great being able to meet locals like Bill (outstanding morning tea! ), Roza at Paripuma and the Secret garden couple in Blenheim. The High tea was an awesome way to end the trip.
We were blown away by Peter Yealands property. The scenery was inspirational. What a beautiful part of the country you live in.
I have recommended the trip to some work colleagues who are keen to go on it.
We thought it was the best tour we’d ever been on. We couldn’t fault it and Geoff was amazing. His enthusiasm, great driving and local knowledge really made it enjoyable.
Thanks again- ClaireNov 2015
Our second trip with your company was even better than the first because we took the 4 day trip and we would recommend it as a wonderful holiday.
The countryside was rugged and spectacular and our guide really knew the history of the area and was able to point out to us exciting things we could never have imagined.
The accommodation and all the meals were excellent and we stayed in country homes we would have had no access to.
It was a lot of fun, very well organised and we felt it was a great privilege to experience the life in this very rugged and wonderful areas. Thank you very much - I recommend the trip to one and all.- Jackie NicollFour Day Molesworth Heritage Tour March 2014
We would like to thank you again for the great tour.
The thoughtfulness that has gone into the tour as far as the variety of sites, accommodation, riding and scenery is brilliant. Geoff’s knowledge of the area made for every step being so interesting.
We cannot speak highly enough of the experience – a great way to see a part of the country most New Zealanders have never seen. Thanks again.- John. Molesworth Four Day Cycle TourMolesworth Four Day Cycle Tour March 2014
Scheduled private car and driver online before starting cruise. I requested specific wineries to visit and to include lunch.
Driver, Geoff arrived at Dock in Picton right at noon for half-day tour. He was very knowledgeable about Marlborough wineries and the industry. Lunch was wonderful and we enjoyed visiting 4 wineries. Cost was very reasonable and the knowledge of Geoff made for a wonderful afternoon.
Would highly recommend Molesworth Wine Tours.
Thanks- Pat LundeenNov 2014
