    Returning Customer!

    Highly recommend the Wine Hopper if you're looking for a tour with flexibility at a good rate. Loved being able to visit the wineries I was most keen to visit rather than being shuttled around from winery to winery with a large (or even small) group. If you aren't sure where to go, they'll make some recommendations (for food and wine). I enjoyed my experience so much that I booked twice within 3 weeks to check out all the wineries I wanted to see!

    Fantastic time in Qtown, such a great idea to go on the hop on hop off bus especially when you are drinking. Our driver Lance was simply the best. Brennan best wines and great music. We had a great relaxing time. Highly recommended.
