My husband Warren and I went on the Platinum day tour on our resent visit to Tasmania. We had the owner Michael as our tour guide for the day. Michael had a great knowledge of the wineries as well as Launceston and the Tamar valley. We really enjoyed the friendly company from Michael throughout the day. Michael introduced us by name to each winery we visited and made us feel very special for the day. We enjoyed a fantastic lunch at one of the local wineries which was fantastic and we got to meet lots of lovely people. We sent lots of wine home and we are still bragging about the fantastic day we had. We look forward to our next trip to Tasmania and to catch up with Michael on another tour. We highly recommend a tour with Michael on your next trip to Tasmania as it really made our holiday a special one.

My mum and I recently did this wine tour on our trip of Tasmania and it was absolutely amazing! Freddy was our driver and he was absolutely lovely, he really made our day. His passion for both his job and his state, as well as his knowledge of Tasmania made the experience very worthwhile. We also appreciated how friendly and down to earth Fred was. Highly recommend this tour as it is a great way to taste the local wines and produces, while seeing a beautiful part of the world.. Big thank you to Marions, Holm Oak and Moores Hill wineries for making the experience so great as well!

My husband and I went on the Platinum Tour and we had Rod as our driver. He was fantastic!
Apart from having great knowledge about wine he also gave us information regarding the areas that we were travelling through. The wine was terrific - goes without saying when send several cartons. We had a great lunch at one of the wineries - it was simple but so delicious.

My husband and I undertook the boutique beer, wine and cider tour. We were the first tour with the new owner Michael and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Having taken wine tours before, we really enjoyed the variety of this particular tour, and Michael was great company.

Michael introduced us by name to the staff at the venues, which was a really lovely touch - a small seemingly insignificant detail that we really appreciated.

There were two highlights of the day: the lunch at Josef Chromy which was included in the tour price (and was divine) and the end of the day at Dickens Cider Bar, where we were happy to send Michael on his way and kick on with the owners for a few hours rather than head back to our hotel.

An impromptu part of the day was a tour of the basement at Taverner's Honey - completely fascinating and gave as a real feeling of an exclusive 'peek behind the curtain'.

Many thanks to Michael and all who made the day so much fun and so special!

We had a beautiful and wonderful experience when we went on the Gold Tamar Valley Wine Tour. My husband and I brought along our parents to enjoy the wine tour with us. We all had an adventure of beautiful scenery and exquisite tastes on this tour, particularly with the scrumptiously delicious platter of delights. We met the vineyard owners and in some cases, their extraordinary pets. My favourite was 'Pinot' the pig at the Holm Oak Vineyard who loved his apples. On top of everything, our driver 'Fred' was great fun. His manner and knowledge impressed not only us but our parents too. What an incredible experience of Launceston, Tasmania. We will cherish this experience of the Gold Tamar Valley Wine Tour because of the memories spent with our parents and the fun we had. We recommend the Prestige Leisure Tours as a must when visiting Launceston, as it was the best wine tour we have ever done in that Tamar region. Thank you for such a golden experience and we look forward to doing another Prestige Leisure tour next time we go down to see our parents in Launceston in coming years. Great value!!!

In addition, Prestige Leisure Tours also assisted us with transfers to and from the Launceston Airport. Again, the service was excellent. We would like to thank 'Michael' for being so patient with us, 'Fred' for giving our parents and us an outstanding day, and Prestige Leisure Tours for looking after us whilst in Launceston.
