We went into this tour not sure what to expect other than learning about Australian wines. Richard really made this tour exceptional. His knowledge of the global wine industry, wine tasting, and Australian wines made this tour really worthwhile. We only went to two wineries,...More

Richard was extremely knowledgeable, however he was horribly rude and extremely not accommodating. Not even close to worth the price. Horrible experience.

Looking to know more about wine country tours in late January, 2017 - especially 30-31 January and 1 February. We are busy in Melbourne 25-29 January and curious if wine country tours are logical from Melbourne or if we should transfer to Sydney 30 Jan - 2 Feb ??? As a committed TripAdvisor contributor, appreciate your insights! Many thanks!
