          Great Day with Luke in McLaren Vale
          There are 2 elements to this trip - ebiking and wine tasting Ebiking - bikes were in good shape. This portion was a means to get to the McLaren Vale. Nothing too memorable (except for the kangaroo skipping along beside us as we entered the vineyard!). If you are looking for a bike trip through the rural roads and vineyards this isn't it. Wine tasting - without giving too much direction, Luke put together a great experience. A great selection of 4 wineries (plenty for us) giving a great variety of experiences, and good wine! Danshi Rise was a special experience. Luke - great host. Knowledgeable. Informative. Engaging. Good fun.

          Relaxing and fun
          Luke was very easy to communicate with. I had a quick trip to visit Adelaide and he helped whip up an itinerary and was flexible as was temperamental weather. Unfortunately one of us couldn’t use the e bike so he followed the rest of us and took her on the bus. The bike track allowed me to see the Mclaren Vale in a way I hadn’t seen before. Beautiful tracks and the bikes were fun! I’d never been on one before

          Thank you Luke- we loved our McLaren Vale wine tour with you. Amazing wine, lunch and company- loved the addition of your delightful dog too. A perfect day out for a group of friends/colleagues.

          Luke was a fantastic guide! Provided some great local gems and we collaborated to make a great itinerary. Loved the wine, loved Nache (his dog), loved the people. Really appreciated the short video he made of the day too! Can't recommend enough!

          Perfect day
          Luke is a very pleasant and excellent tour guide! He has a lot of knowledge of the region and its wines. He is very accomodating and allows you to tailor the day as you see fit. We were all very happy with our day and are looking forward to booking another tour with him in the future. Also his dog nash is a great edition!

          A great tour customised to our group! Luke looked after us so well and even took photos for us throughout the day. Would definitely recommend the tour to anyone who loves outdoors activities and good food and wine.

          Ride Wine & Dine
          We did the e-bike and winery tour with Luke and had a fantastic time. From the moment we met at Moana to the time we were dropped home, the hospitality was second to none! The scenic ride from Moana to McLaren Vale was very relaxing as the e-bikes made it a fun and enjoyable experience, with no hard work! Luke’s knowledge of the area was very informative and the places that we visited had a warm and friendly atmosphere. Luke’s rapport with all the business owners was outstanding. We had an amazing experience and would highly recommend Gone AWOL Tours. It’s something different, give it a go - you’ll love it!

          Great day out on the beers
          Luke created a custom craft beer and gin tour in McLaren Vale for us. We went to Swell (great beer and nice location), Ogre (Great beer and burgers), Settlers (the Shiraz Gin was the best thing I have ever tasted), South Coast Brewing Co (Great Porter) then Shifty Lizard (All a bit hazy by now but seem to remember having a great paddle of beers! Luke picked us up from Glen Osmond, drove us around, joined in with the group, which was great and gave us great insight into beers, gins and wines in the region. Will be coming back for bikes and SUPS in the Spring.

          Amazing Wine Tour
          Luke was an unreal tour host. The knowledge he has of the local region and the rapport he has with the local winemakers is second to none. He went over and above to ensure that our day was as good as it could possibly be. Overall it was an experience I will never forget and I will definitely be back again.

          Excellent day out
          Superb wine tour. Luke tailored the experience to our group and the types of wines (and gin/beer!) we liked. Starting the day with an e-bike ride to McLaren Vale was unique and set the tone for a fun and adventurous day out. Each of the wineries Luke took us to had really interesting and delicious wines making for a phenomenal day out. We ended up buying wine from everywhere we visited! The day finished perfectly with a cheeky G&T at local brewery/gin distillery. Luke is awesome. Highly recommend this tour.

          Had an absolute blast on this tour. Luke from Gone AWOL was fantastic! Visited some hidden gems in McLaren Vale that offered such superb wines. A lot of fun and well worth doing. Look forward to organising another tour soon.

          Great Winery Tour
          We had a great time on the Gone AWOL winery tour yesterday Luke is extremely knowledgeable of the area & the hidden gems in McLaren Vale that we wouldn’t never have visited if it wasn’t for Luke. We sampled some beautiful wines saw lovey scenery and met some very passionate wine makers. I can recommend Oscars for lunch one of Luke’s suggestions. Thank you Luke we all had a great day!

          Fantastic day out
          Gone AWOL Tours. Fantastic day out. Beautiful area great company and tour guide. Loved the electric bikes. If you are looking for something a little different then give Gone Awol Tours ago. If you love the beach, wine tasting and great food then Luke has it all pretty much covered. Affordable, relaxing and you don’t even have to leave the SA state. It is well worth it. 🍷🚲 5 stars from us.

        This experience was one of the very best, personalised visits to 4 wineries Aphelion, Dansi Rise, McCarthy’s Orchard and Brini Estates. We sampled the very best wines at each winery with our hosts explaining everything about their history, the grapes, the process and ultimately the wines. We also got to know the owners/wine makers personally as they hosted us. Luke knows his wines and the region, so much more to learn about the McLaren Vale region

        By far the best wine tour we have been on. Luke knows good wine and just where to take you for an amazing experience. We tasted wine straight from the barrels and gained a new sense of appreciation for the art of wine making. Highly recommend Gone AWOL for anyone wanting to discover the hidden gems in McLaren Vale.

        Luke took the 6 of us on a fantastic wine tour through McLaren Vale. After comparing with many other wine tour companies, Luke’s was by far the best value for money. Combined with his knowledge of the wineries and the area made for a fantastic day.

        If you’re looking for a passionate local, who is warm, welcoming and focused on the group having the best day then look no further than a tour with Luke. He was also extremely flexible in the wineries we wanted to go to, and our pickup and drop off points.

        Cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Luke!

        Thanks for the awesome review; apologies about my delayed response (let's just say Covid is giving me a chance to do some upskilling). I loved your choice of wineries; always nice to go to places that aren't regulars for me. Be sure to say g'day to everyone and look forward to seeing you all again down the track. Stay well.

        Days don’t get better in McLaren Vale than a day on tour with Luke. Luke is so knowledgeable about wine and the McLaren Vale, but I think more importantly passionate about his home region. He is not a ‘tour guide’ he is a local. Luke was on a first name basis with every winery and we felt like we had the VIP treatment meeting local wine makers and going behind the scenes. Luke introduced us to the actual wine makers who put their heart and soul into the business and not just sales staff. We drove around wineries in the region for the next two days and every winery knew him and said we must have had the best day. We did. Look no further if your are in the McLaren Vale. This is the tour for wine lovers and lovers of a local touch. We will be booking this tour again and again.

        We booked Luke’s wine tour of McLaren Vale to celebrate my mums 60th birthday and Luke truly made it a day to remember. Luke took us on a personalised, yet relaxed tour of the Vale ensuring we made the most of the day. Luke provided great local insights and knowledge, and plenty of laughs! We had the best day and we will be recommending Luke to everyone! If we’re back in summer we’d love to do his other bike or paddle boarding tours which also look great.

        Luke was great, I told him the basics of what I wanted, he made suggestions and together we came up with a plan for the day. He booked it all in and kept me informed every step of the way. We all had a ball and the little video he put together of our day was a lovely touch. Highly recommend!!
