About 5-6 hours. It seems like a long time but we spent about an hour at each vineyard which was the perfect amount of time. It will also depend on how many people are in your group.

They will pick you up. Our tour, Platypus picked up people from two different homes. I'd contact them to verify. I was very pleased with this tour.

Hi, Sorry - just saw this. The lunch was good! They can accommodate food allergies or requests and it's very cute and fresh.
