My wife and I were taken around by Andrew, who enthralled us with his knowledge of the area. We went to lots of different wineries and tasted lots of different wines, meeting lots of interesting people along the way. Andrew certainly knew his stuff and I can honestly say that we would recommend Golden Nugget Discovery Tours to anyone. Cheers... More

We had a fantastic day being driven around by Andrew to some of the wonderful wineries in the Pyreness Region. His knowledge and professional, yet relaxed attitude made for a great day out.The tour was reasonably priced and included lunch, information and a complimentary bottle of wine. Thanks V & G

We had an excellent morning walk with Andrew at Grampians National Park, he brought us to the various scenic spots and introduce us the flora and fauna in the park. Very knowledgeable and personable guide! If you prefer a small group tour where you get to see more in a slower pace, I strongly reccomend Golden Nuggets Discovery Tour.
