    Our lovely tour guide (Pamela) picked us up at our gate and so started a wonderful day of visits to local wineries, Makana Confections, and The Vines Village. The wines sampled are definitely world class and have won international awards and accolades. The platters were

    Guide had experience and knowledge of the area and the wine tastings were good and the bus comfortable. Our only comment/complaint was that there are many options for lunch but no discussion, rather the guide choose. In this situation whilst the food was good the others on the

    Hi Susan Thank you for your review. In regard to lunch, for cruise tours we book well in advance otherwise we may miss out on having a lunch anywhere it is getting so busy. On the day as we specialise in custom options where we can, if some choose not to stop at a winery for lunch then yes we, as the winery instructs us to take our clients elsewhere for a snack instead. We cannot cater for everyone's appetites so you would have had the same option. Just a comment to the driver would have been enough to make that change. When this happens and the group is split up at this time there are factors that could delay. It is not the ultimate decision as we wish the groups to stay together. I remember that we did not miss anything due to a short delay on return for you. At HIghfield TerraVin they could never offer take your order and serving in 45 minutes. Therefore it may be that you just ordered an appetiser? Then were finished much earlier than expected. I would certainly allow a minimum of one hour. Apologies for the additional 15 minutes at which time I did also offer. my apology. You did I see have an enjoyable time thereafter. I will certainly look at the lunch options more closely and perhaps offer the wine and gourmet picnic option as this is a set tour that can be booked. I will offer it to the cruise ships next season. I agree they are a lot of fun especially when we have now a 375ml bottle of Sauvignon Blanc to offer. Chocolates also....I know I look forward to my sample each time I visit. I feel completely satisfied after. There is no obligation to purchase but that is life when promoting product - we all know it and we all accept it! and I think at the end of a tour it is just the best treat. A lovely finish. I always give chocolate in my gifts as it seems the perfect touch. Maybe we will see you again on a self drive where you will have more time to experience our wonderful wine and gourmet region. Regards Pamela

    We had a wonderful day with our guide Lisa who was easy to get on with and had lots of interesting things about the area to tell us. We liked her choice of vineyards and enjoyed being in a small group of 4. Despite us taking longer for lunch than expected, Lisa did not rush us
