What people are saying about Gibbston

Jay is out of this world brilliant. Totally recommend booking the eBikes for this trip. There are some hills and hair pin turns where the electronic functions help out a lot. The wineries are brilliant - especially Mt Rosa - do yourself a favour and have their mulled wine. Divine!

I love this tour because the group is very small (only 5 of us). Ride in a spacious mini bus. Pick up timing was punctual. Tour guide is knowledgeable and friendly, brought us to several places with magnificent view. He is also very good at taking nice portrait photos.

Great tour guide! Couldn’t have a better winery tour driver.

Great fun, good wines a nice group, very professional Shari!
