What people are saying about McLaren Vale

If you are loking for a different winery experience, this is the one to do. The Cube was fascinating in it's design and history of the creation. The guide was very knowledgable and general vibe was fun and quirky. Fun day all round, but it would have been nice to spend more time at one of the wineries, felt very rushed.

The driver was very good. He gave a very good history of the region. The wineries we visited were very friendly. I liked Wirra Wirra the best as the lady there took the time to show us through the winery and gave us a great historical overview of the winery and surrounding areas

I had a fantastic day, The Cube and the lunch, then 3 more wineries and morning tea at Information Centre where I bought a nice bag. I met so many interesting and friendly passengers... I also bought a lovely dress and yes some wine! Thank you I had a great day.

It was well worth it..Lovely coach to travel on. Friendly people. Great food. The cube made it more interesting and fun to add to the trip.

Not just your average wine tasting so perfect for those looking for something different
