Punctual pick up from our accomodation. Ross advised that the six of us would have one platter between two, but Mission’s chef made two platters instead and it wasn’t even, but don’t think anyone starved. Mission wine tasting informative and generous. Wasn’t impressed with Church Rd and we were all left standing around the counter. Urban was interesting as not well known. Some of the group did the beer tasting, while others tasted the varietals they preferred. Lastly Linden Estate again with an informative explanation on each glass accompanied by some jovial delivery. We were then delivered back to our accommodation and given a lovely souvenir glass. Thank you Ross for a good day.

We absolutely adored the guided tour and would highly recommend. Our group was awesome. Our guide was very knowledgeable. The food (platter) was beautiful and filling which was a nice way to begin our day.

Excellent tour guide & excellent tour. Lunch was delicious as was the cheese board at the end of the day.

The experience was well worth the money. Ross our driver was very informed about the wines and winery’s.

Ross was very informative and both my husband and I had a great afternoon.
