    The experience was excellent, my friends and I were extremely happy with our private tour. Matthew was excellent and had a lot of knowledge of the area. The tour was relaxing and we never felt we were being rushed.

    Didn't do the private tour and tasting, but did visit the Salvador Dali exhibit. Well displayed, spacious, well lit, and with useful descriptions and notes on each of the pieces. Needless to say, David was both a genius and weird!! His works as displayed, are amazing.

    My wife and I spent the day with Matt visiting large and small producers in the McLaren Vale area. Matt was promptly on time with a very comfortable coach. Matt is very easy to communicate with, very knowledgeable about wine history in the area and has developed strong relationships with his peers that enables him to occasionally obtain special tastings or behind the scenes perspectives that we otherwise would not have enjoyed. Even though we started with an agenda Matt carefully listened to our wine perspectives and adjusted the day to fully realize the most iconic experience. Bob and Joanne F

    Mat took us on a great day ito McLaren Vale..Mat's knowledge of the region and wine makers gave us a great insight to the region. We visited four completely different winerries. Each show casing McLaren Vale's wide range of wines available We had an enjoyable food tasting experience at the Saloppian Inn. We would throughly recommend Mat's business over large tour operaters due to his ability to tailor the tour to your own personal requirements and make every experience special.
