Totally worth it

We did the half day tour. The bus was clean and the driver was really friendly. The stops were easy to navigate. Would recommend deciding what stops you'd like to get off beforehand.

3 stops

I took half day, 13:30 as it was last moment booking and rest was booked out. It allows for 3 stops, bus coming every 45 min. Drivers dont talk too much about area, just if you ask but bus is so noisy that i coudnt hear properly sitting in first row. I was more into nice views and they adbvised me winery where i can walk around, see creek, when i started walking i was told that is private properly and i can only be on winery area so sat on banch and wait for other bus. Good that i took it on discount and paid less than 30, full price wasting of money.

Hello Paulina, We are very sorry you didn´t enjoy your day. The 1.30 pm run always allow the clients to go to 3 stops, you should have done the full day trip if you wanted to go to more places. We will talk with our drivers and figure out what happened that day, they always should talk about the area and the wineries. Thank you, Lucia

Awesome service

You'll get provided with a timetable telling you where all of the stops are and what time you can be picked up from each one, theres normally a 45 min to an hour wait in between stops which is enough time to get some quality wine tasting in. Ask the drivers for recommendations 😁
