Having done several wine tours throughout many regions of Australia, I speak from reasonable experience. From the moment we were picked up, Fred struggled to find first gear - perhaps this was an early sign of the disappointment that lay ahead. Absolutely no information was provided about the region prior to arriving to three of five guaranteed cellar doors of... More

While there was a schedule, Eugene, our driver/guide, was open for any specific places we wanted to go. Made it more enjoyable. Last tour I did we ended up doing 5 wineries but no one was too interested at the end. With Eugene we ended with a nice coffee break and a visit to the Ugg Boot Lady! Made the... More

We enjoyed our weekend tour and cannot speak highly enough of our drivers Jeff and Eugene. However, as mentioned last year, that small minivan is not at all comfortable for a group of 13 travelling the highway from Brisbane. It's a long trip and a less than enjoyable ride. The big bus is great and we absolutely won't do another... More

We were lucky enough to have Fred as our driver for the day on the mini coach. Also lucky were mixed with a great group of people. Fred made the day however with his knowledge of not only the wineries but the entire area and showing us things you normally wouldn't see. We got to see more than a lot... More

Alan picked us up at 10am and we had a fabulous day. We were expecting a driver to take us to wineries but Alan was much more than this. Very knowledgable about the area in which he lives and obviously loves. He told us lots of history about the area.We had picked a few wineries we wanted to go to... More

Just returned from a half day wine tour with Geoff and we had a ball. He was a great guide, open to suggestions, very relaxed and friendly, and never rushed us. The lunch at Jamworks was beautiful. A great day!!!

We only had a short stay in Stanthorpe, and this was a fabulous way to see some of the sights, as well as stocking up on our wine supplies! Allan was a really great host, very knowledgeable, and able to tailor our tour of wineries and other local producers, to perfectly suit our needs. Having a driver while doing wine... More

We were a group of 6 friends and had a lovely day with our driver, Fred. He was flexible with our itinerary, which was a mix of wineries and other local attractions. Fred phoned ahead to each place we visited, to make sure we could be catered for. Lunch at Claudia's was included in the price of the tour and... More

Thanks Eugene for a great day today! We really enjoyed our full day wine tour with you. We appreciated your knowledge, humour and happy demeanour! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed each winery and their unique offerings.
