Enjoyed a lovely day out exploring the Pyrenees Wine Region. Andrew was very thoughtful and had a lot of knowledge regarding the area. He was very patient and we felt relaxed and at ease with him to go at our own pace throughout the day. We visited some smaller boutique wineries which was nice as we probably would not have found them without the guidance of Andrew. Lunch was a platter for each couple at Blue Pyrenees Winery with a variety of meats, cheeses and CONDIMENTS! (Andrew you will laugh at that) it was really enjoyable along with a good wine! Although the van we travelled in was a bit older it was still very comfortable and clean. It was a pleasure to spend the day out in this region. Thankyou Andrew!

Hi Virginia/Peter, Carl/Anne-Marie, Yes keep Peter away from the Condiments. I am happy that you enjoyed your day in the Pyrenees Wine region. Have you been tasting your souvenirs that you bought from the cellar doors, they make great wines in the Pyrenees. It was great meeting you all, I enjoyed showing you around the wineries. Cheers Andrew

We went for the Daylesford and Spa country discovery tour. It was very enjoyable and informative. The small group consists of my partner and I. Andrew was so amazing and had great knowledge of the locale including the wildlife. You would think it would be difficult for a couple to go on a small group tour. Andrew took care of us at the same time gave us some space to bond on our walks as most couples do when they decide to come to Spa country. Meals included consisted of free choice from the menu in small cafes along the way and it was yummy! Definitely will trust Andrew to take us around again. Transport was very clean and considerate too.

Hi Bee, I am so glad you enjoyed your day out in the Spa Country, but its not hard to have a good day in this amazing part of Victoria. The meal at the Glenlyon General Store is always so good, pity I couldn't enjoy a wine with you, but the juice was good. The Spa at the Hepburn Springs Bathhouse is a good way to end the day, I hoped you enjoyed that to the max. Cheers Andrew

I am so glad you enjoyed your day in the Pyrenees Wineries. The Pyrenees Wine region produces some of the best wine in Victoria, and the laid back cellar door experience is a winner as well. Cheers Andrew

Andrew provided us a wonderful day tour with a good mix of hiking and stopping to admire the wildlife and scenery. Andrew's knowledge of the area and its ecosystem, geology and wildlife was brilliant and we were taken to areas not easily accessible with breathtaking views and scenery. An easy going guide and with sustainability underpinning the ethos of this company. Highly recommend. Annie and Joe.

Hi Annie and Joe, I am so glad you enjoyed your tour of the Grampians. The morning walk to the top of the picaninny hill and back to Dunkeld is always a good walk in the morning. The afternoon drive is good as well, if the weather isnt too hot. Thankyou for the nice review Cheers Andrew

We had an amazing day doing the Winery Tour with Andrew. He was a very easy going host with lots of information about the areas we were visiting, and was able to cope with all our chatter ! We had plenty of time at each stop to talk with the wine makers and staff , we never felt rushed which made it so much more enjoyable! The food provided for lunch was magnificent as were the cheeses we had a bit later on in the afternoon ! I did this tour with 2 girlfriends and we would all highly recommend it .A fantastic day was had by all !
