Had a great time cycling in such idyllic surrounds. The food was excellent and I am glad we cycled as we ate so well!! The restaurant 'Seed' in Clare was the best food I have ever had!!

Alburn is the prettiest town I have ever visited. We stayed at the Rising Sun Hotel.

Our guide (who happened to be the business owner of the tour operator) took into account where we wanted to go and accommodated us all.

A fantastic bike tour through the Barossa, Clare and McLaren Vale. Guides Damian and Paul were great and nothing was too much trouble. Accommodation, food, wine, everything was well thought out and organized. Great value for money. Thoroughly recommend. Will remember those long winery lunches for a long time to come.
