    Very nice trip. Could have skipped the beach and had another wine stop. Otherwise an enjoyable experience

    We had an amazing experience on this half-day tour. Our driver/tour guide, Craig, was absolutely a legend. He seemed knowledgeable and was accommodating. It was a great group as well. Drove past Hahndorf, went to two wineries for wine tasting & a cheese platter which was awesome, and dropped by Glenelg to cap the experience off. We even went past d'Arenberg while in McLaren Vale.

    Our guide Bruce was great and very knowledgable. He created a fun and friendly atmosphere and a smooth ride. The company seemed to have a good relationship with the wineries we visited which was nice to see. Both wineries were lovely and the tastings were good. Overall a very enjoyable experience, would highly recommend.

    Tour guide (Brian) was excellent and very knowledgeable, felt the the wine tastings at the vineyards lacked the depth of knowledge or information about the wines, how grapes grown and the vineyard itself from the people who worked there.

    Our first experience of visiting a winery. Wine tasting was good. Also, Craig's commentary during the tour was very excellent and informative

    Our driver, Adam was very informative. We took a scenic drive through Hahndorf as we made our way to McLaren Vale. Shingleback provided a very nice tasting. We enjoyed the experience.

    Excellent tour guide, Craig. Informative, experienced and gave great advice everywhere we went. Beautiful countryside, great wines and time to relax between points of interest. Restored my faith in tours after another very shabby one from a different company in Adelaide. Comfortable and modern small bus. Beach at the end was a bonus.

    Bruce was a very good driving host. Great commentary which gave broad context to the region. Relaxed conversations with a number of fellow tour passengers. Very approachable tasting notes from hosts at Shingleback & Chapel Hill.
