Amazing wine tour and fantastic tour guide!
Apr 2021 • Family
Our wine tour felt like a behind the scenes tour of mclaren vale, which included a mix of the bigger wineries and some of the small boutiques.
Our favourite stop was at Hugh Hamilton with the 360 stunning views and amazing tasting wine.

I highly recommend anyone thinking about booking this tour, definitely book it!

A Great Day in Mclaren Vale
Apr 2021
Great tour, amazing location, nice lunch and great wine.

My Wife and I booked the tour from interstate with little knowledge of Adelaide and the surrounding regions. Turns out our pick was all that we could have asked for and more. Great little family tour company that was easy to book and contact (we were staying in a brand new hotel which wasn't on their list of pick up locations, but no hassle in arranging pick up at the new location). Also we booked as a couple on a "small group" tour however we were the only two so it turned into a very personalized and private tour with no pressure implied being only the two of us.

Danny was our tour guide and was happy to share any and all his knowledge about Adelaide & and the coastal towns on the scenic drive to McLaren Vale, including dinner recommendations.

Within McLaren Vale we tasted at 4 wineries (Shingleback, Hugh Hamilton, Leconfield/Richard Hamilton & Penny's Hill) and a HUGE!! grazing plater lunch at Leconfield with many featured local produces. During the driving we also drove past the d'Arenberg Cube which Danny was able to provide history and many personal stories of the company and family. This was matched with knowledge and commentary throughout the rest of the tour which was light and unobtrusive. It was also very easy to see that he is well liked and has a great relationship with all the wineries that we visited. During the day we were not pressured and Danny was open to changes in itinerary if there was something that took us by fancy.

Overall McLaren Vale is a great area close to the city with great wine and a day with Danny and his company has been a great experience that we will never forget.

Excellent Value and Awesome Experience
Apr 2021
What an awesome experience! It was our first visit to Adelaide and the McLaren Vale, and what a visit. Danny, our guide, was first class. It was clear the tour was carefully selected and it really felt as though we got to see everything the McLaren Vale had to offer.
Couldn't recommend enough. 10/10 would book again.

Great day
Danny made the trip very memorable and interesting. I particularly enjoyed all of the interesting tid bits of information throughout the drive.
All the winery’s were lovely and professional, but personally I enjoyed Shingleback and Dog Ridge the most. They were very warm and friendly - provided great conversation about each of their wines we tried.
Enjoy a fantastic day out.
