Jonathan picked us up at 10am and from the minute we met we knew we were going to have a great day. He asked if there were any wineries we were particularly interested in and designed our tour around our suggestions. My husband is in a wheelchair and can get frustrated and isolated in groups, not today, Jonathan was fabulous,... More

Kerry's tour was one of the highlights of our honeymoon in New Zealand. She was incredibly knowledge and took us to a variety of vineyards, ensuring that she made time for any requests. Our group was absolutely lovely and Kerry kept us laughing throughout the day. My husband and I particularly liked Bladen. The lunch at Wither Hill was also... More

My only disappointment here is that I can't award the trip status of amazingly excellent! I've been on a few wie tours on my time and they've all been excellent but this one is my favourite by far. Kerry was an excellent guide. Her bubbbly personality made the whole day fun. I had been disappointed on booking to only be... More

We had a great day out with Karen. We were picked up at 11 am and made a quick stop to pick up a group who were dropped off at a winery earlier. We then proceeded to Brancott Estate, which is situated on a hill and with the beautiful windows all around the views are stunning. We enjoyed our wines... More

Well worth the dosh. We did a full day, tasted at 7 wineries which to be honest was to many but we knew best - right! The smaller vineyards while had less amenities and whiz we thought had nicer wines and were less comercial, so take our advice and go for those. Great folks, and a fantastic day!

We were picked up spot on time from our hotel and joined a full mini-bus for our tour. We were asked as we got on what sort of wine we liked and we soon discovered the reason was that our guide was trying to tailor the day to give something for everyone. this included being asked if there were particular...

We done the half day wine tour and would highly recommed it. Kerry was so friendly and welcoming. When we got on the bus she discussed wine preferences with us and said she likes to plan the tour around this- she done the same with the rest of the group. We were able to stop off for a quick bite... More

Our guide was great. We gave her some ideas of what we liked and said we would love to try a more boutique winery--well she hit it out of the park with the Bladen Winery. Small, family owned and run, It was our favorite! But after letting us get a quick bite, she asked if any one was interested in... More
