Customer Reviews

Fabulous tour by Jason, was very informative & helpful. visited lovely vineyards & sampled beautiful wines. Would thoroughly recommend. - Kathryn Greenwood


Keith did a great job picking three perfect vineyards for the morning 1/2 day tour. I have written a nice review in TripAdvisor. - Mark Welsh


We had a wonderful trip! The Estates we visited were not only beautiful, but staff were all friendly and knowledgable. They were relatively small and we felt they were very personal and not too busy. Our guide, Jysin (?), was absolutely lovely. He also was also very knowledgable, polite and accommodating. Of course we couldn't fail to mention the lovely wines that we tasted! - Liz and Denis McMillan


Very good afternoon visiting a small group of vineyards. Knowledgeable, obliging driver (Keith) and comfortable transport. More expensive than the winetram but very comfortable and nice to be able to go at our own pace. - Karol Subjally
