This was a fun trip, well organised with good quality bikes. Picked up in central Adelaide, started with a gentle ride around the Chookarloo, then an exhilarating down hill to go and try some good wine. We only went to a few vineyards and this was perfect. We saw kangaroos and koalas, and had a lovely lunch and then did... More

Don't be fooled - some reviews say this is easier than it looks. It is, but it isn't. If you are new to riding, mountain biking or just a little unconfident you will find this challenging but the best part is it is totally achievable and Ian gives excellent advice on the way down. There is no shame in getting... More

What a fantastic day out we had... a gentle ride on very high quality mountain bikes with seats that have since been nicknamed "The Penetrator" It was for all abilities, i went with my parents who are both nearer 60 than 20 and they also enjoyed it a lot. Some quality smaller wineries were visited that we would never have... More

We came from Victoria especially to do this adventure and it was fun and worth it. Ian was helpful and gave interesting commentary as he drove us to our location. The group was fun, the bikes pretty good. My front tyre was a little low which meant I had to work a bit harder over some of the gravel and... More

Hi Karen, thanks for your review. Firstly, in regards to your tyre, you should have said! I check the bikes as they come off the trailer, but sometimes we do have a slow leak- I always carry a pump (and there's one in the van too) so could have topped it up very quickly. Although it is worth noting we... More

OK, so I'm a pretty tough critic. My 18 year old son and I went on the same tour as Adam S. Everything he says is right - 4 different koala spottings within a couple of hours is pretty amazing, as are the views, the careful, patient and relaxed interaction of Ian with the group. Not to mention the quality... More

Ian's trip combining wineries and mountain biking is ace. We were lucky- saw multiple kangaroos and koalas up close, I don't know how he spots them! Despite the heat had a great ride, and that heat made our final stop at the beach and water so much more inviting. Great group, very well maintained bikes, and carefully selected wineries and...

This is a great way to both do some wine tasting and see the stunning Maclaren Vale scenery. The bike riding segments are all fun and well guided by Ian (who has a knack for being able to spot koalas at speed from 50 metres away) and the wineries and lunch were all delicious. After lunch the group settles on... More

Take some fabulous Australian sunshine, the stunning hills of McLaren Vale, two beautiful wineries and a microbrewery, add a great tour guide and some lovely people (also on the tour) to a delicious lunch and what have you got? A fab day out.

With my family of 5 we had a wonderful experience. The tour had it all, great bikes, enthusiastic, informative tour guide who kept all on the tour in mind as we traversed the mountain. The visit to Cleland was the added bonus to feed the wildlife even for us Aussies, but for our Finnish visitor a treat. A cuppa and... More
