    Ian was fantastic and very flexible. He was a delightful guide who cracked a few jokes and coped with 17 loud and excited mums who escaped their chores and families for the day! The wineries were gorgeous and lunch was devine! It was an unforgettable experience and Ian was always keeping us up to date with how long between wineries and time of departures. I would highly recommend wine bus and ask for Ian. Wow!
