Don’t hesitate to book your cycling adventure with Around the Basin. Staff were friendly, funny and relaxed. The bikes are in excellent condition. Easy booking system ,and very affordable. The self guided tour was excellent, easy to follow map and details of each vineyard made it easy to decide which locations we would visit , plus any purchases were picked up by our return transfer bus. The bike trail is very scenic with lots of photo opportunities and beautiful bridges.

Exceeded our expectations

I have been on many wine trials around the world. This one was by far the best for scenery, quality of wine and organization.
