Tex is definitely one of a kind

by the time we were all on the bus,he knew everybody by name and always addressed us individually. he is very funny and quite knowledgeable
nothing was a problem. one of the best tours i have been on anywhere

We had a great day with Tex - prompt pick up, excellent wineries, and made it all feel very relaxed and not rushed. In fact he reminded us of 'Kenny' out of the movie by Shane Jacobsen! He's also well informed on the places he takes you. Thoroughly recommend this tour.

Excellent day, Tex. What can we say! Tex was punctual and was all smiles when he arrived. We set off with Tex telling us what to expect during the tour. We went to four smaller wineries which were fantastic. He took us to a great cafe for lunch and then off to do cheese and chocolates. All in all, four wineries. Tex had a great personality as a tour guide and looked after is extremely well. Thanks Tex! Highly recommend .

After being picked up from our hotel (spot on time), Tex preceded to introduce him self and I could tell already that this was going to be a great tour. Tex was so funny and really made the effort to learn everyone name and even started a few nicknames. We went to two wineries in the morning, both places had special areas for our tour. Lunch was at the pub, it was reasonably priced. After lunch we did a cheese and chocolate tasting then proceeded to two other wineries. I would recommend Tex to anyone who wants small group number, a guide with the knowledge and reasonably priced.
