Here is what some of our guests have to say after spending a day with John...
Hi Libby & John, We are home again now and just wanted to say thank you to you both again for the most wonderful tour on Saturday. Thank you Libby for your warm & efficient communication and organisation of the tour and thank you to John who "blew our minds" literally with the amazing amount of information he had to offer about all aspects of the Barossa. We were delighted and enlightened by the whole wonderful experience. It was a perfect day and as our friend Peter said afternwards, any other tour would pale in comparison. So thanks again wonderful people for providing such a truly amazing and wonderful experience. We will remember it forever..... Such a lovely email to receive on 29/5/13 from Dianne and Leon after their surprise tour for friend Peter from Perth.
Dear John, Our time with you was so wonderful and most certainly forever memorable. Anthony was over the moon with the day and the royal style in which you treated us both. I have never really been able to surprise my husband or give him a gift that left him speechless in the 20 years we have been together, this did the trick. And to see the all day smiles on his face was just so worth the trip to Adelaide and the Barossa. Anthony has spent all week re-telling the day over and over to all his friends and clients. You are truly a gem offering such a unique, professional and personal service and the Barossa is lucky to have you. Thank you again from the bottom of my hear.... What a thrill to recieve this message by email on 12/5/13 from Learne of Sydney after organising a surprise tour for her husband

"Dale and I want to thank you for a great wine tour. Flawless is my description in one word. John had us figured out from the start go and selected the wineries which were intriguing, new, brash, entertaining and most of all where we learned a lot about your great Australian wines. It was such a pleasure to know you and you can be sure we shall recommend your services to any and all our friends that travel to Australia." Gordon & Dale Viberg, (Colorado USA) 2/1/12
