    This was a good trip. We visited 5 wineries including the one during lunch and it was a super fun day. We were only 8 and that was a great number. Phil our guide was great, patient and knowledgeable. I would suggest doing one less winery - it felt like we had little time and were running around and skip the cheese tasting place at the end of the day. Maggi Beers wine tasting is super fun so do ask for it when you get there -also sells amazing goodies and has great coffee. I would also ask to be taken to the chocolate factory - would be a great day to end day Phil did his best but because we were a slow group we got there when they had closed. All in all, highly recommended!

    We had a great day...our tour guide, Bruce, was very flexible and took us off our printed itinerary a bit to some places that were a bit more unique. He was full of knowledge and we throughly enjoyed our day in the Barossa! We experienced some traffic getting our of the city, but he was more than happy to make it up on the other end.

    Our driver was great, very informative, and ready to adjust the plan to our pace and interest. The winery people were great too, they didn't mind us being tasting novices, especially at Schild, where the presentation was especially informative. It's not just the wine, it's the food, views, and a great way to spend a day.

    Really great day trip. Our tour guide Gavin was great and hw was really knowledgeable about the local area. This really added to the overall experience of our day trip to the Barossa Valley. Having a small group 8 people in total on the trip was a good tour size and made the day feel more intimate and easy going. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to experience the Barossa Valley.

    We were lucky enough to be the only couple on our tour which provided us with a much more personal V.I.P. day. Our driver/guide was John and he was extremely helpful and was full of information and history of the Barossa. Seppeltsfield and Chateau Tanunda in particular have very interesting history. The day was absolutely fantastic. A great way to see the Barossa and enjoy a tasting tour of wine and food. Lunch was lovely with a mixed platter of local produce.

    Our tour guide was excellent, friendly, very professional and made us feel welcomed. He displayed a wealth of knowledge not only of this wine region but also the history of the areas that we travelled throughout the day. It was great to actually be at locations that we either read or heard about over the years. Seppeltsfield is a must visit with a most enjoyable wine tasting at Thorn-Clarke Wines.

    Brilliant day with our friendly, knowledgeable tour guide Bruce. Fortunately it was just my wife and myself. We were picked up from our Adelaide hotel, and returned. We covered most of the Barossa including some extras stops at our request. Thanks very much, your tour is highly recommended A service.

    Myself and my partner had the pleasure of being shown the Barossa region by Helmut. It was our first time and I wouldn't have changed a thing. Helmut was the ultimate tour guide, his knowledge of the region and his upbeat, positive vibe made the couple of days even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to explore SA and see it's highlights. The company from other people on the trip was also great.
