Your Local Chauffeur offers a varied selection of tours custom made just for you. Come along on one of the group tours or enjoy a private tour yourself. Everyone is welcome even great solo travellers along with couples, friends, private groups, exclusively just VIP, and Honeymoon tours with options for even transfers to your next destination.  Your Local Chauffeur realises that locals of New Zealand love to explore and Marlborough with the wine in plenty and vineyards, the boutique home stays in the vines and the Marlborough Sounds offer so much more than other regions may realise.  Our global travellers know already and while we wait for them to return you can enjoy a slower pace in the major centres and here in Marlborough a very delightful place to do that.

Tours are created as a given as custom tours are requested. The newest in our selection is a Pamper Package for women but of course men too. Womens’ choice is to have their nails done, a massage by a therapeutic nurse masseuse who knows where to help, a scenic drive up into the semi mountain range for a Hot spa overlooking the Howard River and Valley. Winter or Summer it is one of the most spectacular ways to let the bubbles of normal life slip away. A local produce platter to enjoy and perhaps a short walk to the riverbed and blend into the nature.

Another new tour coming soon to begin in summer: an 18metre cruiser to take you away with a ‘bubbles’ in your hand as you glide through the Queen Charlotte Sound to your own little Bay getaway seclusion. A family managed resort with licenced bar and accommodation for honeymooners in a quaint cottage setting, a group of eight in a traditional bunk house/barn or the holiday home waiting to comply with all your wishes. The cruiser can take you back to Picton anytime however 3-5 days will give you time to relax, bush walk, kayak, fish and sit back with your wine and beer overlooking a tranquil bay sheltered from all the weather.

What about a wine and gourmet picnic at a choice of gorgeous spots in every direction of Marlborough? All you must do is choose the one that suits you. Your wines white and red are supplied and a basket of delicious treats.

In summer the special way is to take a Progressive Wine and Food Trail where you can savour tasting plates along with your wine tasting. 


If you wish to go all out for an exclusive four course dinner Your Local Chauffeur will take you out for a tour on wine, gourmet and scenic delights returning you to your accommodation to freshen up and then transfer you to your boutique restaurant in the country not 10 minutes from the CBD. 

Day trips are popular and for locals too who want to have a short getaway and Kaikoura is such a scenic drive and arriving there you can play golf or cruise out to the whales, take a helicopter over the area overlooking the snow caps of the Kaikoura Ranges or the farmlands beyond. Lavender Farm or beachcomber walks to savour the fresh sea air.

Nelson for shopping if you cannot find just the right piece.  Stopping at Havelock for a fresh fish and chip lunch or even the green-lip mussels and maybe a fresh fruit icecream to follow. Pelorus Bridge is another option with bush walks along the Pelorus river or sunbake on the rocks below, even a swim if you are game.  Nelson holds the middle of New Zealand spot. Maybe we could ask if that has shifted since our earthquake experiences. The Nelson Cathedral and the great lunch venues along the Port Road or even venture further if you are an artisan lover into Mapua. You can find jewellery, pottery, art works, Pics Peanut Butter, Wow Art and classic cars. 

Your wishes can be created in your own special tour. Stopping off to visit friends or something unique you can teach us about.
If a transfer to Nelson - Warwick House is a lovely spot to stop.
