Avoid this company at any cost. They are basically an expensive taxi. They also call 11.15am to 3.00 pm a full day.

Hello Stelvans, I'm sorry to hear that you didn't find value in our services. I hope that the unfortunate situation with credit card charges was resolved with the card company as quickly as possible. Regrettably I could not fix that for you on our end with it only posting once. I hope that your return home was a safe one.... More

So much fun, so organized... our driver Don was AMAZING. He was knowledgeable and attentive to us. He was there to answer any questions but also sat back while we were wine tasting to socialize and just enjoy our time yet still keep us on track with the time. Such an enjoyable time.

Breakaway Tours accommodated our group of five in a fun and professional manner. Our driver, Don, was friendly, informative, very polite and extremely helpful. Don added lots of local wine industry insight that made our trip even more enjoyable. Planning this trip with Breakaway was a delight. What a memorable day we had. Thank you Breakaway Tours & Event Planning!
