Do yourself a favour and book onto this tour - you will be richer for the experience. From the moment our lovely tour guide Sue picked us up the whole day was fun. Sue is a local and very knowledgeable about the Mt Barker region which made for an interesting ride between four wineries. Forget steel and glass cellar doors with overpriced souvenirs - you won’t be going there. You will go to four family run vineyards in beautiful settings and you will taste a huge array of fabulous wines. Pace yourself - you won’t want to miss out by peaking too early and this is a big day of tasting for all of us wine lovers! Oh and take your credit card - you will probably come home with some great wine which Sue will happily put into the back of the bus so you have your hands free for more tastings. This is arguably the best wine tour we have ever been on and we highly recommend it,😀🍷🥂

Wow :) Thanks for your time to review Karen. I loved meeting you and found the day just as much fun as you did. I'm pleased you heard the advice to 'pace yourself' as there is so much great wine to taste on this tour of Mt Barker. I appreciate your recommendation and also hope to take you on tour again on your next visit to Albany. Travel safelky until next time!

This was such a relaxing way to sample wines from the Mt Barker wineries. We visited 4 wineries and the tour guide described points of interest along the way and then introduced us to the wine maker or representative at each of the wineries. We were given a good introduction to the particular wine making process used and each winery offered almost their entire range for sampling (although the guide advised us to keep our selection to a reasonable number at West Cape Howe wines where their selection is vast). One of the things I liked best was not having to worry about driving or directions. The whole day just unfolded in front of me. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

I appreciate you taking the time to review your tour experience with Busy Blue Bus Tours on your 'Mt Barker Grape Escape' full day tour. You note the feature of this tour that you get to meet the people who are intimately connected to creating the wines - the owners, wine makers and families. There are a lot of wines to taste and the range can be overwhelming; especially at the end of the day!! That's why it's great to relax into the day and know you don't have to worry about who is the skipper and how to navigate. Let us do the driving and we'll show you more comfort, ease and local knowledge. Come again!

My wife and I incorrectly booked our tour on the wrong date and for the date we wanted to go BBT did not do tours on that date. But after a phone call they arranged for us to do the tour on our required date, I.e they fitted us in regardless. The tour was great and very personalised. Sue was absolutely a great host, and we enjoyed all the venues visited, would do it again on one of the other tours when next in town.

Tour guide was really knowledgeable. Nice guy. Tour was great but 1 negative the tour itself wasn't what was stated. It said we would have a platter lunch and a winery tour. we got neither of these. Lunch was great and tasty but it was a meal not a platter and there was no winery tour either. I do understand there has been a few changes due to winerys leaving the area but I think maybe the explanation of the tour when booking needs to be changed(updated) it was still a great day though. Thoroughly enjoyed

Very good tour! Our guide Joslyn was awesome! Made us feel welcomed and right at home the whole time! Enjoyed the tour at Plantagenet Wines and the best service was at West Cape Howe and Gilbert’s! Not too keen on Galafrey’s but the view was stunning! All in all, it’s a great day out and a great way to meet new people!
