    We had originally booked a wine tour with another operator which unfortunately was cancelled at the last minute. We were then referred to bubbly grape tours who were able to fit us in even at short notice. We are so glad they did as we had a fabulous day with Katrina and a mini

    Thank you Becky. It was our absolute pleasure to be able to host you on the day, and it shows the value of having the really good working relationship with the other operator who made sure that you would not be disappointed. Both of our companies believe that the tours are the best way to share the wonderful range of wines and the beauty of the region.Thanks again. Both Kat and Rock Ferry will be happy to know that you had a great time. Gary

    Hi Darren Katrina will be delighted that you had a really good experience with her and thank you for mentioning that you liked our branded mini buses. With so many cellar doors and so much to choose from we are proud to say that in almost every case things run smoothly and the cellar doors do a really fantastic job of working with us to achieve that. Best Wishes and we hope to see you again one day Gary

    Thank you H7062. It is important to us to be flexible and to do what we can to make the adventure yours, not ours. I'm aware that the decision to go and do gin tasting resulted from a chat over lunch, and was very pleased to know that Jono went the extra mile in modifying the itinerary so that you could include that. We hope to see you again Best Wishes Gary

    Thank you Drama.... Your review is truly humbling. Without you (our guests), being the 'U' in Us, there would be no reason for us to be. I know that sounds a bit corny, but even though many of our guests don't write reviews about their experience with us, the driver/guides always provide me with feedback on every tour - both the good,and the things we can improve on Best wishes and hope to see you again Gary
