Kristy was an amazing guide. It was a super fun day of visiting wineries, having snacks and laughing

Rebecca - 5/5

Fantastic day out. Started off very quiet but by the end everyone was laughing and acting like we’d known each other for years. The tour guid was very informative about the area and very helpful with the pick ups and returns. The hosts were very knowledgeable of their wines and the pair of the foods. The host at the wandin was by far the outstand of the day.
