It was a memorable tour, thanks!

I was worried because it was my first time to participate, but in the end it was all right. Not to mention wine tasting, it was also a good memory to have the opportunity to interact with people who came from various countries to the sightseeing through the tour. The bus driver was to be the guide and coordinator, but he was a very nice and nice guy. The winery combination was appropriate and the guides were all kind. I hate being a little rushing overall, but it was acceptable. If you can afford a day, this is one of the tours I would definitely recommend. that's all

Loved this tour! Our tour guide Billy was fantastic. So informative & knew so much about Australia as a whole, including so much knowledge about the various wineries & distilleries. I would highly recommend this. Also, the good at lunch was delicious! Prices of the wines to purchase is not bad either.

Well worth the price, fun day had by all!

Went with some of my girlfriends and had such a good time. Made friends on our tour too! Our driver Cheeks was charming, funny and informative. The wine tasting was very good and saw some beautiful wineries. Also the cheese tasting was soo good, we were raving about it the whole way home. The driver went above and beyond allowing us to stop for photo opportunities and even seeking out some kangaroos for us to see and photograph. Lunch was also very delicious, everyone was very happy with their meals. A good value, varied, well planned out day. Couldn't fault it.
