The tour was amazing including the bus ride. The driver Chris was friendly and told us interesting information about the different areas we drove past. The only disappointing part was the lunch at Fergusson's which felt more like pub food more than winery food. The food was bland and not very exciting. However, the beautiful views made up for it. All in all it wa a fantastic day!

The communication of time changing was very bad as at first they arranged picking up time at 7.40-8.10. Then they changed the picking up time at 7.10 without my confirmation which meant I may know or not they wouldn’t care about it. Even the time table in the application still haven’t changed. However, I made it on time and the guide from greyline was the best guide ever. Thanks to him.

Great Tour

We were being switched to a different tour agent as there was only 4 of us. The new arrangements did not stop us from having a great experience. Liam, our guide is very knowledgeable and experience. Getyourguide has contacted us via phone and email to keep us informed of the changes. Great service and good tour experience.
