Paul, the tour guide, customised the tour based on our preferences. His knowledge of the local culture and history was infallible. Paul went out of his way to ensure we all had the best experience and went to the most amazing wineries, breweries and eateries. Wouldn't hesitate a minute to recommend Paul or Unwind Tours... Get on it
After arriving at our accomodation, my sister and I wanted to arrange a wine tour at short notice. Paul was so engaging and welcomed us both into the tour the next day. From there, the tour was fantastic, with Paul taking us to a number of wineries, nearby coast sites and a new established brewery. For lunch, we were treated to a two course meal at luxury winery with an incredible view. Throughout the tour It was evident that Paul had tailored the tour based on the groups preference. Paul also provided a map and guide to some other highlights we were unable to make on the tour.
Heavily recommend Paul and Unwind tours!
After reading all the great reviews we were extremely disappointed with the day. It was much more of a taxi service than a tour. Our Driver Paul was not informative or engaging, but rather absent, silent and occasionally surely. The wineries we visited seemed unaware of our group coming, and we were left to make our own arrangements for our tastings. When questioned about this Paul questioned the integrity of the winery. It turned out that his absence was because there was a second group that he was also taxiing between venues. And while I am aware this was caused by guests being from either end of the region, it meant we felt quite let down. It also meant that we were not picked up for our “full day” tour until 11 am, there was certainly never any time for seeing any sights, but there was a good deal of extremely fast driving.
Our lunch venue was very scenic, yet our tables (the group was separated for lunch), were inside at the back (but apparently booked 2 months ahead, more like 2 minutes), and many of the menu selections were not available. There should have been a wine tasting at lunch which was never organised.
We ended up doing only 3 tastings for the day, certainly less than expected and advertised.
On a positive, the wines we did taste were fabulous, the lunch was delicious and we had a wonderful group of people on the tour that certainly rescued the day.
And to finish off the disappointment, one of the couples wine purchases went missing on the bus.
In comparison to other tours we have been on, this was disappointing and I wouldn’t recommend.
My partner and I booked a wine tour with Paul. We took us to some great wineries around, but we organize a delicious lunch in a well known winery in Margaret River and surprised us with the most amazing ice cream after that. When we were ready to go back to the hotel there was one more surprise, anexperience by itself, the he took us to Cherubino winery, and a 67 wine testing experience in a beautiful Italian environment.
He had such a fun, and relax day and learn a lot!! Defenetly recommend Paul to drive you around, and take you to fantastic places and make you laugh!!
We will do it again!
My partner arranged for a last minute wine tour over the Easter Long Weekend with Paul. As the last time we booked with Paul, he was more than accommodating and knowledgeable of the area. Paul arranged a great tour for us and a beautiful lunch. He is friendly, caring and fun to spend the day with. We highly recommend Unwind Tours and will use again the next time we are in the region. Thanks Paul!
Had a fabulous day going to all the wineries. Paul was an amazing tour guide, he made the day about what we wanted and kept the day relaxed and informative. Would definitely book and tour again with Paul.
