This experience quickly became my favourite way to explore vineyards. Lee was an amazing guide, he is knowledgeable, fun, and passionate about what he does. He does a great job of following the pace of the group and making sure everyone is comfortable to ask questions and stop for pictures. He made our whole experience even better. I would highly recommend!

Very interesting tastings at two very different Wine Estates. The smaller of the two had a personal and knowledgeable approach and showed pride in their product. Regrettably the larger more upmarket venue shared little knowledge . A most enjoyable way to support local tourism . Our guide was pleasant and well- informed and kept us entertained with interesting information regarding the vineyards , the environment and the estates we visited for tastings.

If you are wanting to visit wine farms and enjoy incredible scenery, plus have a bit of exercise, this is the way to do it. We were a group of 7, ages of 30 to 65. The e-bikes were the answer. Us older ones felt like spring chickens!!! Abie, our guide was superb. The wine farms, the weather and the scenery were unforgettable. Thank you to Taryn and Quintin from Bikes 'n Wines xxxx
