    We were picked up on time from our hotel and immediately put at ease by Brett introducing us to everyone on the bus. We were taken to places a little off the beaten track so to speak which was great as we learned a bit of local history and the places we were taken to were just magical! The food and wine were local and delicious and we learned so much about them. The views were spectacular. Varied venues, no lack of food and we met a great group of people. No pressure to purchase anything. This is a full day excursion, bring your hat and sunnies and comfortable shoes. We highly recommend this tour. Brett the guide is so knowledgeable and enjoyed sharing it with us. We appreciated his passion for the region.

    Was great to have Dale, a local guide with heaps of historical knowledge of the areas we visited and able to tell how the place names came to be called. The food was amazing found the wineries a bit underwhelming. Very well organised and time at each place was just right ✅.

    Great experience from the start. Pete introduced himself and we took off. First stop farm tour with sugar cane drink & chocolate. He shared great stories & kept us very entertained. After a quick farm shop we headed to a Barra farm. Fed the fish & had some amazing sashimi prepared by Pete. Then off to the Shannonvale winery where we tasted delicious wines & Pete cooked the rest of the Barra for our lunch. Ended with Daintree ice cream. Amazing! Highly recommend this trip. Great value and wonderful to support local tourism during Covid. Just do it!
