Customer Reviews

We had a fabulous day on the tram and bus. The staff were excellent, cheerful and helpful which all added to the great experience. All the vine yards we visited were great and all offered wonderful tasting experiences, some with platters and others offered lunch. The setting of them in the valley was stunning, made even better with a warm sunny day. Would highly recommend a day on the tram! - Christine Nixon
