Great selection of wineries - 3 different wineries had different specialties and experience (there was 1 very young i.e. 8-year old estate), distillery was very average and lunch was well catered at a brewery. Driver was fantastic - personality + driving responsibly (i.e. not a rash bus driver)

The whole day was an amazing experience . Our guide was super friendly and a great driver . The group was a perfect size and we visited the right amount of places . Lunch was excellent overall an amazing experience . Look forward to the next one .

Loved the choice of wineries. The pace of the tasting was good - didn’t feel too rushed when visiting all 3 wineries. The pick up and drop off was seamless. An intimate day trip with a small tour group of 6 away from the city.
