My friend & I thoroughly enjoyed our day trip with Southern Cross Tours. Paul was extremely informative about the geology, geography & history including the various indigenous/cultural aspects of the areas we visited. I would recommend this tour highly, it was well planed, and ran smoothly, Paul has a very dry and funny sense of humour and managed to fill the travelling time with interesting banter so the time flew.

Excellent day out Enjoyed the variety of wines and other experiences Bus driver chatty and informative and very helpful Lunch was excellent and not rushed at all Would highly recommend this trip
