it was very relaxing with a beautiful setting we loved this activity we will do it again a big thank you to the guide who is at the top
The Hot Springs was more than I expected with it’s Turkish Steam Bath, sauna and ice cave as well as the hot springs pools. The Green Olive was a wonderful setting for an outdoor lunch and T’Gallant winery provided lots of great wines to taste! The Eagle cable ride above the peninsula provided a spectacular view and the beach boxes was a nice ending touch.
In order to indulge in all the hot springs. I recommend a microfiber towel and robe. The robe they supply is horrible when it gets wet. Be careful of the kids using your stuff because they want to stay dry. Other than that the layout of the hot springs is relaxing with the birds and ducks. Soothing to the muscles. Highly recommend!!
Hot springs were great and well worth going to. Lunch at the winery was OK and the wines tasted were not bad and good examples of the areas wines. The afternoon visits were less impressive, the Enchanted Gardens more suited to families and the Strawberry farm was OK for a afternoon tea stop. The guide was certainly courteous during the trip but there was no commentary during the tour and hence we really didn't learn too much about where we were. I would recommend a hot pools and winery trip but not this one.
The guide was excellent and the Peninsula Hot Springs are well worth visiting. However the lunch at the Green Olive was very average and the venue vastly overpriced. Also the enchanted garden was not enjoyable due to all the construction. I would recommend another venue for lunch and a proper wine tasting at a couple of wineries as opposed to the enchanted garden.
A great trip , a little dissapointed with the wine tasting it was just a sip of four different wines, very rushed and not really what I expected. The hot springs were fantastic and would recommend . I felt the chocolate tasting was an afterthought, Enchanted maze was fun .
