“Our wine tour with John was the perfect way to celebrate my 26th birthday. Stopping off at four different wineries, my friends and I were able to indulge in treats of the Murrumbateman wine country while enjoying the comfort of an air-conditioned bus (that even picked us up from our front door!). John was very accommodating, friendly and even played some tunes on the guitar during our gourmet lunch. Thanks for a fantastic day!” – Laura
