We had a very nice tour guided by Shona who was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the local attractions. We stopped at several locations and none of them disappointed, very well chosen. The wine, cheese, and chocolate we bought was fantastic and lasted us through to New Years. A great way to take a break from having to... More

We had a great afternoon with Shona touring to a cheese factory, a chocolate shop and 3 vineyards. What a marvelous way to spend an afternoon! The group was small, the tour was relaxed and Shona was welcoming and knowledgable about the area. We meet people passionate about their products and the wine and cheese we took home tasted better...

We just went on a wine tour around 4 local vineyards. Shona was the perfect tour guide with her friendly, welcoming nature and knowledge of the local area and wineries. We highly recommend her and Total Tours if you are looking to visit the local vineyards but don't feel like driving. Tina and Jade

Shona and Tracy run a wonderful tour. With Tracy as our guide, we visited four local wineries where we were introduced to wines new to us. The vintners were delightful, friendly, and informative. The tour allowed us to relax, enjoy the wines, and not worry about driving.Good on ya, Total Tours Pahia! Bud and Gayle Popken

I have just returned from a lovely afternoon out visiting some local crafts and wineries. Our guide Shona was so friendly and professional and I really enjoyed meeting local people producing high quality goods. The Stone house and the Ake Ake winery were highlights for me and the chocolate will make lovely gifts - if it lasts that long. All... More
