Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Can't say enough good things about this tour! I booked the Scenic Rim tour for my 30th birthday and Karen and Ray absolutely made it a birthday to remember!

They were so accommodating with my requests and they took us around to places that I'd never been before. All my friends said the same thing - they had an amazing time!

Personal highlights were Scenic Rim brewery (their lunch boards were so tasty) and Imbibus Gin

A great day out at some fantastic boutique wineries. Thank you to Ray and Karen, also to Phil, Sue and Snowy for your friendly welcome, it felt like we were home.

Be prepared for some good old Aussie banter. We were very privileged to have Ray to ourselves for the day.

With a side trip to the Bee Gees Way and a drop of at the airport thrown in. Over and above our expectations.

Choose Mountain Wine Tours. Cheers 🥂🍷🍻🍽🥩🧀

Absolutely recommend this tour.

You get a great day featuring excellent wine, food (those steaks!!) and scenery. But probably the most noticeable feature of this tour is that the hosts really go out of their way to make sure you have a unique experience. This is not the normal, overcrowded tour, with a bored driver narrating a script. From the time you get on the bus (and collect your goodie bag of snacks) you are in control of the pace of the tour.

Ray kept us entertained, and noted we could stop anywhere along the way if we wanted to look at something or take photos.

We were also impressed with the amount of wine and beer that we got to sample. The tastings were personalised, with someone there to run through each wine, and discuss the processes involved in creating a great wine.

Do this tour.

Perfect way to spend a day out sampling boutique wine and beer found in the Scenic Rim area west of Brisbane. Karen and Ray both hosted our small group today and provided us with a comfortable drive. Our lunch at the brewery was delicious and we were able to purchase some unique offerings from the local wineries as well.

My wife organised this trip and I am glad for it.

The tour started off well with a Coffe Stop on the way to the winery.
The buss was clean and air conditioned adn the time spent in it traveling was pleasant, more so as the day went on.

The highlight for me was the first winery 'Bunjurgen' it was a small, and the owner John (if I remember correctly) was astoundingly knowledgebale. I could have stayed there all day listening to tales of the region, the grapes, the wines etc.

Sadly we had to head to the next winery where we had a morning tea and more wine.
Lunch was at a lovely small town pub with true australian characters.

My wife and I got amazing photos at every stop we made, it's not caleld "the scenic rim" for no reason.

On the bus we were provided with snacks, drinks, good company, great conversation and an overall wonderful day.

I would recommend this over a large winery tour any day, the intimacy and interaction with the owners of each winery was fantastic.

A very well organised day of touring different wineries with a lovely group of people. Ray and Karen run this business with lots of passion and everything ran very smoothly. It was such a pleasure to sit back and enjoy the air conditioned bus ride and then arriving at wonderful destinations all quite unique with fantastic selections of wine for tasting. I would highly recommend a days tour with this lovely couple.
