If you wanted to change a winery for a brewery and include the cheese factory, make sure you do so when you book as we could not do this as per the website info to tell your driver on the day, the driver did try, but we could not swap and had to pay extra for the brewery, the cheese factory apparently is at the brewery but unfortunately did not do due to time and because we had already paid for the last winery which I would not rate the service at all and wish it was the first one on the list as we had a top day until the last one, which dampened the vibe.

The Mt Tamborine Winery Tour was an amazing experience and great value for money!! Our guide, PJ was so lovely and fun and shared a lot of interesting information about the wineries and whatever we were tasting - which added to the experience and made it very memorable!!

Great day out, good people to share with, great weather and an excellent driver. 5 stars ⭐️

Excellent day good choice of wineries, Brad kept us all on track.
