great day out

Great option to visit the wineries without driving. Bus was on time and driver was friendly. You can choose what winery to visit, lots of options. Would recommend

Glad we went for the full day

Very friendly and helpful drivers, buses were comfy and warm. Glad we opted for the full day ticket as The half day I feel would be quite rushed and wouldn’t allow for much time at each stop.

Be careful before confirming your purchase

You can never change the time that you must get on the bus. If you misunderstood anything, for example, location of orange boat is different from the location of the shotover jet, you have to pay extra money. Moreover, I had a terrible experience. The driver went away without stopping the bus even though I was standing at the right pickup point. Unfortunately, next bus was after 75 mins, I had to pay $60 to take uber. Both the driver and the office did not apologize to me.

Hello Hye, Thank you for leaving your review, as you are well aware you booked 4 different activities on one day and then tryed to change them. Three of these were not with us and these companies would not change your times. We gave you two options 1/ to change the day 2/ to pay extra price of $52.00 to change the three tickets, this was at a discounted price as we believed you would miss this bus. You then missed your bus and this was confirmed by your Uber driver who we happen to come across at Bungy. If you book 50% off seats then yes you must stick to the time, but again we gave you several options which you declined. You then got on our bus again at Bungy and continued on. This is unfortunately not a taxi service it is a bus. We had full buses this day and again we are not able to wait for you for 15 minutes for you. We did try our best and wish you safe travels.

Ms

That is a great experience! The Hop on Hop off service is wonderful. However, we experienced difficult to catch a bus from Arrow town and Gibbston Valley due to too many people line up for the bus at the same time. I suggest the bus company may offer the bus run more frequently for the peak period such as during Arrow Town Autumn Festival, Easter holiday, Christmas/New Year, or may use a bigger bus to take more people. Because most of visitors planned their journey tightly, if they missed one bus, then they may or have to cancel their next visit destination that they planned for months or a year.
