February 2020

Great tour with a lot of local knowledge thrown in. Went to 2 wineries where the reception was warm and welcomimg.

 

Ms F J H February 2020

We had a really good afternoon with Craig on our tour. It is a fantastic way to see a bit more of the Adelaide area and to taste some lovely wines along the way.

 

Stephanie A February 2020

Our guide Craig clearly loves the absolute stunning wine region. Very pleasant and knowledgable, he was the perfect host for the tour! Both wineries were good, I can recommend the cheese platter (can be easily shared by two) at the second winery for 14 AUS $ (worth it). Last stop was Glenelg, where we recommend to stay for a little walk and some drinks and food (easy getting back to Adelaide center by tram or an inexpensive Uber ride). Wonderful half day experience in a small group, highly recommended to book here!

 

David R February 2020

Craig was excellent. Absolutely passionate about Adelaide and wine and extremely knowledgeable about both. We had the best afternoon - so informative and great fun.
5 stars all the way!!

 

Elsa B January 2018

Lots of fun and lots of great wine! You get PLENTY of wine to taste and option for some snacking food. Our guide, Dave was thoroughly entertaining and very informative, not just about the wine, but also about Adelaide. We had a good group of people from Norway, England, US, and some Aussies as well. Cheers!

 

Leslie H December 2017

Lots of great wine and company

 

Therese C October 2017

Great tour with enthusiastic and knowlegeable guide. We packed a lot into the afternoon but it didn't feel rushed. The bus was small and comfortable and the atmosphere was personal. Great itinerary with variety not just wine tastings - I'm not really a wine person but I really enjoyed this trip.

 

Amanda M September 2017

We only had a limited time in Adelaide, so this tour was a great way to see beyond the city. We visited three top quality wineries, which were welcoming and very generous with their tastings, and it was great value for money. Dave was a superb guide - friendly, knowledgeable, passionate and a lot of fun. And he went above and beyond the call of duty to return my husband's mobile phone, which he'd left at one of the wineries - fantastic customer service!

 

Joy P July 2017

I had a great time on this half day tour. The driver was funny, informative and very personable and professional. We had a good group of people who were all having a good time. The 3 wineries were very good and I learned a few things about the wines from that area. I would highly recommend this tour and driver. The whole booking process was easy as well. A very good experience overall.

 

Catherine C May 2017

This tour was great. Dave was fun and knowledgable. We really enjoyed the special attention we received at the three wineries and all the history we learned from our guide.

 

Karen A B January 2017

Brilliant tour guide. Funny with excellent local knowledge. Beautiful scenery and warm welcomes at the wineries. Thoroughly recommend.

 

Alice P January 2017

Amazingly good value. It was a wonderful experience. McLaren Vale is a hidden gem. Dave, our guide enhanced the trip with his knowledge, personality and his ability to take a group of strangers and make us feel like old friends. The wineries he chose were all interesting but different. You did not have to be a wine buff or drink copiously to get enjoyment from the experience. I cannot recommend tbis trip highly enough.

 

sally G September 2016

Dave was friendly, knowledgable and provided great entertainment between our stops at the vineyards. We discovered some fine wines and took back some great memories as well as a few bottles of shiraz.
Thanks again Dave for making our day so great!

 

Nipun O July 2016
