Nikki, Dallas and Russell went far and beyond making sure that I had the best experience at Barossa Valley. They even helped me get my luggage safely stored, since the tour took place the same day I flew back home. Russell commentary was funny, informative and interesting which made the trip really entertaining. Lunch was delicious and the wineries selection accurate. Totally recommend it.

JR our tour guide was so knowledgeable and just loved the day. The 4 wineries were amazing ... I then did some retail therapy and wearing My new dress tonight. I'm at a Ten by Nine night where people talk about real life experiences. Taste Off The Barossa ..well worth going on if in Adelaide.

A great day visiting a number of big name Barossa wineries. Pick up in Adelaide outside our hotel, comfortable travel to the Barossa and humorous and informative commentary along the way. A great day out which required little effort from us.
