We had a really good afternoon with Craig on our tour. It is a fantastic way to see a bit more of the Adelaide area and to taste some lovely wines along the way.
Wonderful guide Craig
, Feb 2020
Our guide Craig clearly loves the absolute stunning wine region. Very pleasant and knowledgable, he was the perfect host for the tour! Both wineries were good, I can recommend the cheese platter (can be easily shared by two) at the second winery for 14 AUS $ (worth it). Last stop was Glenelg, where we recommend to stay for a little walk and some drinks and food (easy getting back to Adelaide center by tram or an inexpensive Uber ride). Wonderful half day experience in a small group, highly recommended to book here!

Lots of fun and lots of great wine! You get PLENTY of wine to taste and option for some snacking food. Our guide, Dave was thoroughly entertaining and very informative, not just about the wine, but also about Adelaide. We had a good group of people from Norway, England, US, and some Aussies as well. Cheers!

Great tour with enthusiastic and knowlegeable guide. We packed a lot into the afternoon but it didn't feel rushed. The bus was small and comfortable and the atmosphere was personal. Great itinerary with variety not just wine tastings - I'm not really a wine person but I really enjoyed this trip.

Great time on a rainy day! Was pouring so the group elected to just drive through Glenelg, which was disappointing as that was in large part why we chose this particular tour. But what we saw was great. The group was small and very friendly.
