Ian was a great host, he ran the day very well, was super friendly and organised with all the gear we needed. Highly recommend this tour if you're up for an adventure and would like to visit McLaren Vale wineries.

The day dawned on a cool wet day and we were a bit concerned about the cycling conditions. However, Ian, our tour leader, took us under wing and led us along paths that were beautiful, safe, and comfortable. Ian was genuinely upbeat the whole time and took great care to ensure that all riders were comfortable with conditions and with their bikes. The ride itself went through world class wine country; each vineyard we visited served us samples of top notch wines. The ride was not overly challenging, but then again, that was not what we were after on this trip. We worked around those areas that were flooded, and still had a pleasant ride. I can strongly recommend this trip to all levels of riders eager for a leisurely cruise through a world class wine-growing area! And we were treated by the sighting of a Koala Bear!

We were a group of 12 and we did the wine and Mt Lofty tours over two days. It was a fantastic experience and Ian took great care of things. Maybe more wineries was about the only criticism and very minor.

Thanks Shane for the review. Glad you had a great weekend.

In regards to the wineries, we generally do try to fit in another, and give the option to do an extra winery instead of the brewery too. You were a big group that day, and we had a few slower riders so we were a bit behind on time. You all picked to go to the brewery after lunch rather than a winery at that time. When we could have left the brewery it was quiet late, and everyone asked for more time to drink another few beers, so we did that instead of going to a final winery after the brewery on the way home. Sorry if I didn't make that clear. Everyone seemed pretty happy at Goodiesons and didn't seem in a rush to leave!

Three colleagues and I celebrated a successful business conference by going for a cycling and winery tour. Lee was a perfect host, engaging and responsive to our group's interests, including adding an espresso and gelato stop that met the standards of our Italian participant. We were picked up at 9am, as planned, and returned to the start point at 5pm. The equipment provided (bicycles, helmets, gloves, and water bottles) was all in great condition, and Lee took the time to make sure it fit us and we were capable before he took us out on the road. I wouldn't recommend this for children or for adults who've not ridden in the past five years, but it was fine for the occasional rider. There were only a few, shallow uphills and switching to a lower gear was sufficient to get up that and feel accomplished.

Ian was very accommodating considering the nature of our group was to analyse his business as well as partake in the experience. Great experience, modern equipment and well prepared when on tour. Well done.
