An incredible day out

My partner and I had the most incredible day out in McLaren Vale with Jon. From start to finish, the whole day was a highlight! Extremely knowledgeable and easy going, I can’t recommend him enough. Already planning a trip back!


A terrific birthday tour

my partner organised my birthday weekend in McLaren Vale and chosed Jon as our guide. Jon was great, very professional, took us to places where we hadn't been before and was very flexible to organise something based on my preferences. We will definitely contact Jon for our next visit to McLaren Vale.


A wonderful tour with Jon

Jon took us on a wonderful tour of Mclaren Vale, showing us some local hidden gems of the wine region aswell as a south australia iconic gin distillery! His knowledge of wine making and history of the region is very helpful throughout the day. Jon even arranged for our wine to be sent back to brisbane which was an added bonus! Well worth the adventure! Can't wait for our next tour with MyMcLaren Vale tours!

Perfect Personalised Tour!

We had a fantastic day with Jon visiting 6 wineries in McLaren Vale. Jon is really knowledgeable about wine so we learnt a whole lot! We had one winery we definitely wanted to visit but left the rest up to Jon and he came up with the perfect itinerary, including a delicious lunch. Couldn’t recommend any higher, also very affordable for what you get.
