Great experience . It was good to meet the people at the wineries and our host driver was very informative
If you’re looking for a tour of McLaren Vale look no further!
The day started with prompt pickup by Ines (sorry if I spelt that wrong!) before picking up the only other two people on our tour, don’t worry though, the comfortable and clean Mercedes van only holds 8 maximum so you’re never part of a massive group
On our way to McLaren Vale our guide offered highlights of the Adelaide CBD and surrounds before stopping at Moana Beach and a drive through Glenelg to show off some more of what South Australia has to offer.
Our wineries for the day were Shingleback, Hugh Hamilton, Leconfield and DogRidge though these change with day and availability - my personal favourite was Hugh Hamilton and not just because of Bruce, one of Hugh’s dogs making himself at home in the cellar door, but due to the excellent service of Alison
Lunch is included and was a fantastic platter of local products/produce
Our guide even went to the extra effort of dropping me close to my AirBnb as it wasn’t too far out of the way which was really thoughtful and saved me the walk back from where I’d selected to be picked up
A great tour and Innez was a wonderful tour guide. Small group and lovely lunch with plenty of different wines to sample. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful day visiting a variety of wineries. Innes was very knowledgeable and showed us around the region in the comfort of their van. Lunch was lovely at a local cafe. A request to visit a specific winery was easily accommodated. Great experience highly recommend
Our tour guide was Danny C. He was early to pick us up and immediately made us feel welcome and relaxed. The mini bus was comfortable and we had a great time en route getting to know our fellow tour members. The wineries chosen were friendly and informative, with generous measures. Lunch and wine at Serafino was as good as at any top restaurant and a highlight of the day, especially being able to choose the wine of your choice to accompany your meal. Danny provided excellent commentary and background information on the city of Adelaide and it’s wines and is a credit to his organisation! Overall one of the best tours we have done and we would highly recommend!
Fantastic day with our guide Danny who had lots of interesting information about the city and wineries. Would recommend!
Very nice tour. Inez was very knowledgeable and did a great job. There were us and another couple on our tour and we visited four wineries. Fox Hill was our favorite. Make sure you aren’t Oman empty stomach as each winery poured several tastings
We had an absolutely fantastic day ! I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in exploring the McLaren Vale region, we went to great wineries good flexibility here because we were 6 people and a spectacular lunch. Lots of fun, and great to learn more about the history of the region and South Australia.
We had a private tour for two of us and it was a fabulous day! The wineries were great fun to visit, and the included lunch at one was spectacular. Our guide was superb and told us stories of his living in this area. He knew all the best places to stop, including a wonderful confection-making company great treats!. We were able to talk about various wineries and select the ones we were most interested in visiting. We even were able to have some wine shipped to the US. It was so much more personal than most group trips. We felt really pampered and like we got a good feel for the local environment.
These wineries were fantastic! Our guide was very informative and fun and we had the pleasure of sharing our tour with a very nice young couple. A great day trip to a beautiful wine region.
Great tour. Danny was a superb host and guided us on our trip around the vinyards and tastings.
The lunch was excellent and served in tremendous surroundings.
Mike and Jan
What an amazing day we had. Wonderful wine and yummy lunch
we had a wonderful day great wine good company nice lunch we do recommend food and wine tours Danny and Innez were very informative will use their services again when in Adelaide next
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made excellent winery choices based on the taste preferences of our group. We had a small group so the tour was relaxed and our guide gave us options for where we'd like to go. We even managed a visit to a chocolate shop! I would highly recommend this tour
What a great day with a great host!
The wineries we visited were lovely and tastings generous and informative. Our lunch at Serafino's Winery and Function Centre was fine dining which was totally unexpected and delicious!
A great day visiting 5 wineries and a chocolate shop as well!
Thoroughly recommend for a great experience of McLaren Vale just south of Adelaide.
This is a great tour. Very informative and the wineries were of exceptionally quality.
The tour was not rushed and very leisurely. The group was small and it made it felt like a group of friends spending the day together enjoying some fine wine and food.
Inette was awesome and this was an all around great day! The tastings were very informative (and there was an abundance of wine at each). Lunch was spectacular and we even had time to stop at a cheese shop. Highly recommended. I would definitely do another tour with this company!
Great tour with knowledgeable guide who took the time to discover everyone's preferences and adapted the day accordingly. We would recommend this tour to anyone who wishes to discover the Mc Laren Vale region in style!
Local area knowledge was fantastic!
Loved every minute of the tour.
Thank you Danny.
Great tour and guide, the meal and the wines were outstanding
Unrushed and flexible and fun. Well worth the outlay and thoroughly recommended.
Well what can I say , this was a pesonalised tour we had 6 on our tour Danny picked us up as planned and we headed for the hills Via the secenic route . Danny was very proud of Adelade and he knew his history as well as having a great sense of humour . We visted five first class vine yards and had lunch , the lunch was perfect together with a class of wine of your choice by the open fire so relaxed. I would certainly recommend this tour.
I took this tour with my bestie and it was so much fun! Danny is a very friendly, funny and knowledgeable guide who obviously loves his job. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we visited some very well researched wineries! The lunch was just perfect and our tour group was friendly and sociable. We took two tours when in Adelaide and this one was by far the best. We didn't feel rushed or pressured to buy anything at the wineries and the smaller tour group definitely made the day more enjoyable. Thank you Danny!!
