Chris was a Fantastic guide, we were made to feel welcome from the second we stepped on our little bus. Enjoyed all the food and different places and listening to the history and info Chris spoke about in between. We had a great group of people on board. Enjoyed our day.

Was great to have Dale, a local guide with heaps of historical knowledge of the areas we visited and able to tell how the place names came to be called. The food was amazing found the wineries a bit underwhelming. Very well organised and time at each place was just right ✅.

It was a wonderful experience to travel out here and see the places we did in the time that we had. The people that we met were only to happy to share their gorgeous products and stories, the tasting experience was enjoyable and the information about the area shared by Brett was top notch! Brett engaged us in the process and made sure everyone was comfortable and enjoying the day as much as he was.
