Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

It was a wonderful day. The behind the scenes admin team is wonderful as they were able to handle the details required considering this was a gift to me arranged by my daughter who is overseas. The day itself was run smoothly and our driver guide was inclusive of all of us on the bus and made genuine attempts to keep us all informed in an amusing and lighthearted way. The tour itself included a great range of big and small business wineries. Each stop was welcoming. Lunch great. Thank you.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

You don't need to be hugely knowledgeable about wine to enjoy this trip. Our guide, Nick, was easy going and very informative; clearly passionate about wine and the whole wine industry. We got to see four different wineries operating on hugely different production scales and, of course, to sample lots of different and new wines, as well as taking in some fantastic views. Would highly recommend this trip!
