Fantastic Experience!

The Half Day tour was just perfect! We managed to plan it well so we were able to get to 4 wineries (Akarua, Amisfield, Wet Jacket & Gibbston Valley). The buses we’re pretty much bang on time each stop which was fantastic as the weather wasn’t the best. We had amazing drivers who had all the right information to help us plan the day accordingly. We would 100% do this tour again and visit several other wineries and probably some of the same again too. Absolutely recommend this to all!!
