Family fun

Hi We did this with two teenagers. We did the half day.’ It was so easy with pick up from town and drop off at bungy. Nice bike and lunch without the wines. Agreed would be great with stopping at every vineyard with friends but good for others to know this is very family friendly.

Highlight of our QT trip

We did the half day self guided winery tour on labour weekend and it was the most beautiful day! We loved cycling around the beautiful valley and visiting some amazing wineries. Our drivers who took us and picked us (& our wine!) up along the way were fantastic. We both said it was the highlight of our trip.

Fun day out

Had a great time on the half day winery tour, we fit in 4 of the wineries with plenty of time for tasting at each one, and a longer time for food at the last stop. Highly recommend this for a classic kiwi activity. Thanks guys!

Even though we hadn’t been on bikes in years, was so easy and fun. Great way to see the scenery and the local vineyards.
