"We have been working with Marlborough Travel since 2011 and are thrilled at the value they add to our business.  Whether it’s transporting over 600 people to and from our event or providing that post event “Marlborough Experience”, their level of expertise, flexibility and professionalism means we know our clients will get the experience they came to Marlborough for.  From the relaxed but professional management to the friendly staff, you know you’re going to be treated to a special time in Marlborough with this team.  We simply wouldn’t work with anyone else."

Chris Polson, St Clair Half Marathon



“For a first class experience on the Marlborough Sounds I would thoroughly recommend a trip with Marlborough Travel on board the Odyssea. Recently I went out on a Lunch Cruise as part of the New Zealand Bed & Breakfast Association Conference and found the food, which included seafood, to be superb, with the crew being both knowledgeable and friendly. All this presented on a roomy top class vessel resulted in a most enjoyable and memorable experience.”

Russell Mathews, B&B Association, National B&B Conference – May 2014


“Marlborough Travel provided coach services and our Marlborough Sounds Cruise for our annual conference in 2014.  The coach services were great and Marlborough Travel provided exceptional service in providing additional transfers at short notice when the rain came. The Seafood Odyssea Cruise and lunch was a highlight for our delegates with a visit to Kaipupu Point birdlife sanctuary being exceptional.

One thing that that stood out about Marlborough Travel, and which makes them different, was the exceptional friendly service provided by all the coach drivers and the crew on the Odyssea. With our delegates being in the hospitality business, we notice and appreciate exceptional service.”

Fergus G Brown, Chief Executive, Holiday Accommodation Parks Association of New Zealand, Holiday Parks Annual Conference – June 2014


"The friendly, professional service provided by Marlborough Travel throughout our recent four day weekend in Blenheim was outstanding. The region is lucky to have such a dedicated team representing them. We took a bit of a gamble coming in winter but we had a truly magical time and would love to come back to the region."

 Julia Dunn, Event Co-ordinator, ITM Incentive Conference
