We visited some lovely wineries on this tour and were delighted to go to Maggie Beer's. However the driver's sound system for commentary did not work, he thought it was funny to scare wild kangaroos which we considered cruel, and he used crude language. Even when asked he would not tell us which vineyards we were going to and how the tour would pan out. He made a number of comments which put other people down. We would not use this company again.
Great trip with lovely small group. Driver Peter was good, full of local knowledge. Lunch option was awesome.... antipasto platter. matched with a local wine. Brilliant. Maggie Beer Farm Shop was awesome. Even got to meet Maggie. Great tour.
Great day trip to the Barossa! My sister and I went on this tour on Easter Saturday. We had a great time with our guide Paul - who added a sudden encounter with an awake and active Koala friend. We visited 4 wineries - my favourite were Kersbrook Hill surprised my taste with their cider! and Rusden The Malbec is unique finishing with a gin. Group was the best and we made new friends from Adelaide and Ireland. We didnt feel rushed but chilled out, enjoying our time with nice wine.
good day out not the best
This tour was fantastic. Dave our driver was very helpful and had a great knowledge of the area. We were lucky that all on the tour got on with each other. I highly recommend this tour as long as you have a sense of humour and want too have fun.
A wonderful day out. I chose this trip because of the small number of guests 5 on our trip which gave us options to tailor the destinations according to our interests. Our driver Pete was a wealth of knowledge about the area and clearly loves what he does and meeting new people. Also a good, safe driver. We were taken to a couple of scenic lookouts to get our bearings - the weather was ideal in late autumn. The selection of cellar doors for tasting was varied. Lunch and morning tea fabulous and visits to a cheese factory and chocolate manufacturer were delicious. Highlight for me was Maggie Beer's farm - fantastic that pretty much all her products could be sampled, and the bushland setting was beaut for a short stroll. All up a great day out.
As a group of six travelling together we were lucky enough to be the only ones on our day trip so we were able to tweek the itinerary a little by only doing 2 of the wineries and including a visit to Hahndorf. We all totally loved the experience. Our guide was knowledgeable and informative about the region and was helpful and attentive to our questions and requests. We started out looking for koalas on the outskirts of Adelaide but as they were obviously all on annual leave we headed further into the hills. Our morning tea stop at the German village of Hahndorf was fantastic - everything from the delicious food in the lovely cafes to the history of the buildings and the friendly people in the shops - definitely a 'must see'. The scenery in the Barossa is beautiful and dotted with quaint little villages so there's always something to see. We then stopped at 'Te Aro', a family-owned winery, to sample some of the local vino and were again impressed by the history of the business, the presentation by the owner and of course the quality of the wine. Our delicious lunch at 'Kies' which was included in the cost was at a wonderful little cafe filled with souvenirs and had a wine tasting shop attached. It was then on to Maggie Beers farm which also incorporates a lovely cafe and is filled with all of Maggie's products that you can sample. You can wander around the property which has peacocks and pheasants and a turtle-filled lake - I would definitely include this farm on your list. Our day started at 9.30am and we were back at our apartment around 4.30pm after an absolutely perfect day.
Had a fabulous day... small group with the 3 others I booked with. Sam was very accommodating with where we went, how long we stayed and advice with different places. Thanks Sam.
