Being West Australians, we were impressed by our lovely Optus stadium tour and certainly would recommend it to anyone. Having already attended events at Optus stadium before, it was fantastic that we got to see behind the scenes. They certainly have thought of everything. The only negative was that the train does not stop at the Optus station during the week and it was during school holidays. Not sure I understand that! Rocco, the tour guide was very imformative and certainly knew his stuff, which helped make the tour very interesting
Overall this experience was good. Although when we stopped at 2 of the wineries they didn’t seem very happy to have us there doing tastings. Windy Creek winery was beautiful but only allowed about 10 minutes to sample their wines. Garbin estate also rushed us. They way they were rushing people made it so that they did not get any sales. I would recommend this tour but perhaps the organisers should look at the wineries they stop at and maybe find alternatives or give them this feedback so they can be more accommodating.
We cannot recommend Alan enough. He was full of knowledge and made the whole experience fun and very educational. We had a brilliant time, the lunch was excellent and our cheese tasting platter was to die for. We came home happy and stuffed to the gills, we are definitely doing this trip again and will make sure all our friends know about how great an experience Alan made this for us.
It was a really terrific and exhilarating boat ride. The day weather wise was a lovely but hot one and being on the boat was very refreshing. We got to see the island from the perspective of the water and it looked beautiful. The water was clear and turquoise. The bays and beaches looked very inviting.
Overall a great day. There were plenty of wines to try and things to taste. The stops were a bit rushed at times and an extra hour in the day would have been great. The lunch was very good however not the platter as described
