What people are saying about South Australia

Very well organised arrangements and tour. Russell was exceptional in driving, commentary and knowledge. All winery experiences enjoyable. Only downside was presentation at Peter Lehman winery. (Please note that in making these comments they are NOT intended to be racist) I just have difficulty hearing what is being said with an Asian accent and to have a mask on aswell made it almost impossible to understand. And that’s a pity cos the Peter Lehman story is a good one! Maybe pass on this feedback please.

Had a great day, our drive JR was fantastic!! His knowledge was amazing! Loved the whispering wall stop but the other stop in the little town was a little pointless. Cute little town but no need to stop. We did throughly enjoy our day

The guide was great and had a wonderful sense of humor. I enjoyed the wineries and that our group was treated specifically. Had a great time.

Amazing group with fantastic driver/guide; JR was so approachable, knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend
