My friend and I went on a winery tour with Paul in January 2013. We are in our mid-20s from New York. Having toured many of the wine regions in the US, we had high expectations. Paul far exceeded them all.
We were in another region of Australia the day before when our flight was delayed at the last minute. Our new flight would have caused us to miss Paul's pick-up by 30 minutes. We called Paul very late the night before, expecting to leave a message, when he answered immediately. He went out of his way to find another pick-up point closer to the airport so that we would not have to miss out on the wine tour.
As if this wasn't wonderful enough, the experience itself was also fantastic. We were with two travelers from Europe and Paul made the atmosphere comfortable and casual so that everyone became fast friends. Paul was very knowledgeable about wine, but didn't drone on and on with dull facts. He gave just enough information to keep it interesting and educational before we got down to the best part: the tasting.
The wineries Paul chose were exceptional. It was obvious that he had great relationships with each as we got personalized, friendly service. The quality of the wines was also excellent, and the place where we had lunch superb. As a couple of foodies from New York City, we are hard to impress--everything was delightful.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
In short, you can't go wrong with a Winebus tour. I almost couldn't believe how luxurious it all felt for the money. This was one of the highlights of our few weeks in Australia. Thanks, Paul, for an incredible experience!
