Deguste las delicias del Valle de Barossa durante un tour guiado de día completo desde Adelaida que incluye dos catas de vino, un suculento almuerzo en una bodega y una visita a Hahndorf. Su experto guía contará la historia de producción de vino del valle antes de las catas guiadas en la bodega Seppeltsfield y en Wolf Blass. Con paradas en los monumentos de la zona y una ruta panorámica que le llevará por el río Torrens y las colinas de Adelaida, la excursión le ofrece una experiencia en profundidad de la legendaria región de producción vinícola y su entorno.
We had a small group who thoroughly enjoyed the tour, from the wine tasting, learning about the history of the area, and the knowledgeable driver, to the beautiful scenery. Very tasty lunch, with generous tastings of the wines. Staff where friendly and helpful.
I received a last minute phone call telling me that I would have to go on the 1st instead of the 30th, even though I specifically booked the day I chose for a reason. The tour guide more or less just rambled as we drove endlessly. The first wine tasting was neat, and informative. But when we went to Wolf Blass, it was a joke. The wine rep rushed us through the tasting and poured nominal tastes for us. I would say at the end of the day, I probably had about 2.5 glasses of wine. When you consider how expensive this trip is, that's definitely not worth it. It didn't feel comfortable or friendly. And it was more of a pain than anything else. Lunch was overrated. Not sure who wants a giant steak lunch in the middle of a tasting, nibbles work best for pairings and trying. But since lunch was at Wolf Blass, it was even more bland. Don't do this one, you'd be better off.
We did enjoy the tour on the 27 February with a few exceptions, we were sitting halfway down the bus and had trouble hearing the drivers commentary which was annoying. I did make him aware of it and he did turn his mike up a knotch but we still struggled to hear him and gave up asking again. the winery tour to Seppeltsfield was really good but very rushed after the wine tasting we only had about 15 mins to look around which was disappointing. The Hahndorf visit was good as was driving through the Adelaide hills, again we couldn't hear the drivers commentary on the local history. All in all a few improvements but a nice afternoon.
The vineyards were excellent as was the lunch. The drive was beautiful and the driver informative. One disappointment was that the trip's description advertised that it would be a group of up to 20 so we were expecting a smaller group. We were on a large bus and at lunch with 37 other people. It worked out though. There was plenty of space with wine and food to go around.
Having taken numerous V tours in the past, I can say that this specific trip is not the best. Went to 2 top name factory wineries where wines tased were not that good and no one bought anything. Wines were not their best and winery spokespersons seemed to be speaking as if they were memorized speeches. Nothing personal about it. Then drove from Barossa to Hahndorf. Should take this off the trip and stay in Barossa. Spent too much time driving on a bus listening to a monotone bus driver repeat what town we were passing through over and over. Maybe a different tour operator wouldve been better.
Fun day of wine tasting, seeing the beautiful Barossa Valley, great lunch at the winery. Enjoyed walking back in time at Hahndorf though there didnt appear to be many Germans manning the shops! Our driver and tour guide/driver, Pete, was helpful and knowledgeable
great tour and the driver/tour guide was excellent, not too chatty. The winery's were very informative.
Hahndorf itself was very pretty, shops were similar, its such a shame they do not have more arts and crafts from the local or greater area
showcasing the locals artists/creative people. Pubs were fun.
