Marlborough Elite Tours was born in 2009 to fill a gap in the local tourism market by catering to those who wanted a more luxurious approach to exploring the region. It is locally owned and operated by Fay and Brent Silcock.
Both Fay and Brent grew up in Marlborough - New Zealand’s premier wine region. They have been involved in the Wine Industry for many years and both have wine diplomas. They also have an extensive knowledge of Marlborough and the South Island.
They are passionate about the region’s many attractions, from the amazing sea life and scenery of Kaikoura and the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, to the wineries, olive groves and artisans of Marlborough and Nelson. Together they have extensive knowledge to exceed your luxury touring expectations.
