          Do yourself a favour!
          What an amazing day. Spent some time at four friendly wineries, sampling an extremely tasty selection of Tamar Valley wines. Lunch at The Duck was delicious. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. Will definitely do this again when I’m back this way. Great value for money - highly recommended!!

          Great Introduction to the area
          Thank you Gillian for a fantastic wine tour. We left all winery selections up to her as it was our first time in the area, and we were not disappointed! Lunch at The Ducks was delicious and the setting is beautiful. We will definitely book another private tour with Gillian and Terry when we return to the region.

          A wonderful day.
          Great day, Terry was easy going and informative, bit intimidated at first as an older couple with 5 young people/couples on the bus, but they were so nice, friendly and warm, and we had a wonderful afternoon tasting great wines.

          Relaxing wine/gin tasting tour…
          A comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable tour with Terence and 8 fellow travellers (later, our best friends after the gin and wine tastings..!). Terry was a quietly thoughtful and knowledgeable guide and our day was a relaxing experience visiting the four vineyards and distillery. Our charcuterie lunch at Cabbage Tree Vineyard was generous and delicious. Highly recommended!

          Best of the best, a must-do tour in Tasmania
          I've joined several wine tasting tours all over the world, but this is the best of the best! Highly recommend! Tamar Valley is very unique and beautiful. Terry offered me a VVVIP tour, he is very knowledgeable and charming, showed me 4 lovely vineyards and a special Gin place, all of them are great. This is the must-do tour in Tasmania. Thanks Terry, you made my trip in Launceston complete;)

          A Fabulous Day
          I've been on quite a few wine tours and this was one of the best. Kieran was easy going and amiable and the tour ran to time. The wineries that we visited were all quite different and took very little time to reach. Everyone on our tour found something they liked, whether it was the sparkling, a white or one of the many Pinots we tasted. The Meal at The Ducks was delicious and the staff were lovely. The stand out was Cabbage Tree Winery, the last on the trip. The Pinot Noir there was beautiful and the white were in the Marlborough style.

          An excellent tour. The driver, Iain, was friendly, professional, helpful and very knowledgeable of the local area and history. The vineyards were beautiful and the wine delicious. The restaurant for lunch, Duck, was an excellent choice. A thoroughly enjoyable day.

          AN ABSOLUTE STANDOUT!!
          AN ABSOLUTE STANDOUT!! We were so lucky to have Terry as our tour guide – his knowledge of all things Tasmanian – history, dates, events and, of course, about the art and science of wine, was absolutely amazing!! My husband and I went to 4 wineries (all of which had the most beautiful wines) and a gin distillery (the best gin we have ever tasted!) and had an awesome meal at The Ducks restaurant!! The chef and owner of the Duck even picked a bunch of his Pino Noir grapes from the vine for us to try – they were surprisingly small, dark and sweet – yum! We were also incredibly lucky that the wine maker and owner of one of the vineyards invited us to see the de-stemming process and took us into the fermentation room – how amazing was that!! This was a wonderful day filled with an amazing amount of learning – about history, about wine making, about high-quality Tasmanian wine, gin, distilling processes, barrel making, food and just simply – lots of fun!! We cannot recommend this tour highly enough – your Tasmania visit will not be complete without it!! A special thank you to Linda at our first winery – you really helped us understand the process of vintage and non-vintage wine, and also to Jules at our last winery (Cabbage Tree Hill Winery) – wish we could party with you one day – your hospitality and personality is equally as impressive as your very, very high quality wines!! Terry – our thanks. We will never forget the day we spent with you and Tamar Valley Wine Tours. We hope to join you again in the future. Cheers Robyn & Darrel

          We were in Tasmania and on the way back to Devenport we did the Tamar Valley wine tour. The tour operator was onetime. We were picked up from where we were staying. Despite only 2 of us the tour went ahead. We sample various cool climate sparkling to Pinot Noir, Gin and cheeses. It was value for money and such obliging tour operator. It was a memorable moment. Recommending tho those who loves Tasmanian wine including Sparkling methode Tasmanoise. As we can not call Champanoise.

        With the fires going on in Australia I decided to take a side trip to the island state of Tasmania. I was very positively surprised . Terry, our host and guide, did an excellent job commenting about the newest development of the Australian wine industry because of Tasmania is cool climate it is not great place for warm style grapes such as Shiraz it is an excellent place to grow Pinot and some chardonnays period I joined a group of 11 other individuals for a tour of four different wineries period the first one provide an excellent lunch one was very much a boutique winery and totally organic period I like the down to earth atmosphere and the total dedication to the quality period because of the cool temperature and Climate this is really sparkling wine country and they are working their way up to some very good quality period I highly recommend this tour and wish the organisers great success in the future. 5 stars out of 5.

        My mom and I did this tour Jan 2020. We had a full bus (8 ppl) which was comfortable size for a group. Booking was easy through their website and Gillian contacted me on the morning for a pick up time from our hotel.

        On our way to the wineries Gillian provided us with some info about Launceston and Tamar Valley which was pleasant. Altogether we visited 4 wineries and got lunch with a glass of wine (included in the price) at the first winery and cheese platters to share at the last. Lunch options were amazing at Iron pot bay winery, ranging from nibblies to prime steak! Everyone's lunch was cooked to perfection and this was a perfect opportunity to get to know everyone in the group. All the wineries had bathroom facilities (you're tasting a lot of wines... ) and of course and opportunity to purchase wines (everyone had EFTPOS facilities as well).

        Perfect day out all in all, will definitely recommend and probably will attend again on my future travels!

        An absolutely fabulous day. We had perfect weather and a small group of super friendly outgoing people who clicked immediately. Terry was a great guide/host, very knowledgeable about the history of wine making in the Tamar Valley and looking after us at every step. He was also very relaxed about timing, letting us really enjoy each stop to the full (I think we ran over schedule by more than an hour, but we didn't want it to finish). We started at Marion's with lovely views and excellent wines, moved to Goaty Hill for an excellent lunch, then Cabbage Tree Hill and finishing at Swinging Door, which was the highlight. The owner (Doug?) is fairly new to winemaking but so dedicated and producing some really nice wines and ciders. He spent the whole time we were there talking to us, giving us history and stories and flooding us with tastings - twice as many as any other winery. The day exceeded all my expectations and the whole group enjoyed every minute.

As you say, the day was perfect, weather, the small group, the vineyards, lunch and premium wine. Starting at Marion’s on a still Autumn day overlooking the vineyard to the magnificent Kanamaluka river Tamar tasting estate grown wine and meeting Marion was a perfect foundation for our Discovery wine tour. To really relax and enjoy the day with Tamar Valley wine is what we aim for! Cheers, Terry and Gillian Tamar Valley Wine Tours

        My brother and sister in-law were visiting and were keen to taste some of Tasmania’s fine sparkling wine. I’ve been on a few tours with Terry before and as usual he gave us a wonderful experience! We visited some lovely vineyards, drank great wine and had a wonderful day. We bought along the parents and the grandchildren too. The kids (4, 4 and 6) were accommodated for well - free lunch at the tamar valley wine centre, we had pizzas and the kids at spaghetti bolognaise which was perfect! Terry is so easy to deal with and truely went above and beyond to make a wine tour with young children as smooth as possible.

        Terry was great, in coordinating with me and catering to our exact requirements and then busing us safely right around the Tamar. We were picked up on time, in an 8 seater VW bus, and I was surprised how quiet and comfortable it was. A great day was had by all, due to his advice and service.

        Terry, our tour guide, was excellent, describing each winery before we visited it as well as telling the history of the Tamar Valley.
        We were able to taste a wide range of wines at each winery, all the hosts were friendly and knowledgeable.
        We had plenty of time at each winery.
        Our shared platter lunch and cheese abd fruit platter at the end of the day were both delicious.
        I would highly recommend this wine tour.

        I've been on a few wine tours in my time and this one is up amongst the best I've done. The stops were well timed and gave ample opportunity to sample wine and enjoy food without feeling rushed throughout the day. Our guide Terry was a great guy, very knowledgeable and excellent in his ability to communicate. Can only highly recommend to anybody interested in a relaxed day exploring the wines of the Tamar Valley with like-minded people.

        What a wonderful day out for us, although local COVID-19 had prevented any travel. Terry tied in the histories of the local wineries with commentaries on the wider history of settlement in Tasmanian with such knowledge and skill that it was a pleasure to listen to. His choice of wineries offered not only tastings but different settings from very family orientated cellar doors to commercial operations with interesting buildings and stunning views. Excellent lunch and afternoon cheese platter. We appreciated the smaller group setting and Terry was the perfect host. He took the trouble to collect us from our farm so that we could enjoy it. Highly recommend him.

        Hello and thank you Julia and Greg! It’s so nice to read your account of our Discovery wine tour in the Tamar Valley together. Our door to door roundtrip wine tour service is handy and with some careful planning, we can reach outer areas as well. It was my personal pleasure to have you both on board as wine enthusiasts, who knew how to enjoy each vineyard and it’s backstory. Looking forward to the next occasion when you will join us for another wine tasting adventure. Cheers! Best regards, Terry and Gillian

        We did the Sparkling tour. It was really great and Jill was very informative and knowledgeable as we drove out to the first cellar door. There were 3 of us so we had our own private car on this tour. The cellar doors were all great and informative. The cheese platter at Jana was massive and just delicious. Lunch was great too. The only negative I have is I didn’t think it was worth the extra money for a bubbles only tour. We noticed other people walking into the cellar doors could try the ones we were trying (maybe we did get to try some more Expensive ones but still didn’t think it was worth the extra $).
