From booking the experience to the actual day was great, communication was spot on and I was kept informed. The morning was fabulous- Chuck the driver was so good and funny! And Stu our ‘pilot’ was great, informative, welcoming … the whole experience was amazing and I would highly recommend

Chris was a Fantastic guide, we were made to feel welcome from the second we stepped on our little bus. Enjoyed all the food and different places and listening to the history and info Chris spoke about in between. We had a great group of people on board. Enjoyed our day.

Great choices of wineries, could have provided a third winery instead of the distillary. Driver was friendly and accommodating, allowing us all to bond more at a local pub. Would recommend this tour, would have also like more history about the place.

The best experience that I have been into, the staff were amazing, kind, punctual, all requirements were covered, amazing!!

The variety of food was amazing. Brett's knowledge of local information was great.
