“I did the Barossa Valley tour on Friday 30 June 2018 and loved it. I wasn't sure how interesting it would be, but all the guides at the wineries we visited were excellent and told us a great deal about each company as well as about the wines. Our Groovy Grape guide, Jase, was hilarious and kept us all entertained as we travelled from one stop to another. Excellent tour, would thoroughly recommend.”
“Did the Rock patrol Adelaide to Alice tour this past July and IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY! My group size was just right that there were enough new faces to meet without feeling like number. Shoutout to Andrew for being an awesome guide and go out of the group's way to drop me at the airport for my outbound flight, fellow group members for the vibe, and all the places that the tour took me to. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an awesome experience in the Outback”
