This was a great way to see some of the wineries in the McLaren... Definitely recommend this if you like wine tasting but want something different from being driven in a van all day.

What a great way to see the country side and meet new people, while trying delicious boutique wines and riding easy through the quiet streets. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

Response from Welshie75 | Property representative |
No, sorry, none of our tours would be suitable for having a toddler on the back, they are too tough trails. I would not ride with my daughter on the back on our tours.
