What To Expect With Clare Valley Tours?
A good day out is the answer.
I subscribe to the KISS theory in life, Keep It Simple Stupid, it works well for me.
A day out on tour generally starts at 10am and concludes 5pm.
Pick up / drop off in Clare or a local accommodation house.
Pickup fees are applied to the outer regions. They are listed on the booking site.
No alcohol on the bus.
You are coming to Clare for time out, to relax, to explore, to discover the region, to sample our produce, to enjoy the wines and experience the beauty of the area. I won’t say you are here to recharge because some of you need a bit of recovery time after a visit to Clare.
See our listed tours for an Itinerary.
For Private tours, tell me your preferences and l will log a track for the day, alternately I can organise a special day for you.
If you have an idea of wineries you want to visit let me know and I can plan the track to take. Tell me your absolute preferences, sometime the time runs away and we can’t visit them all, but we can make sure you get to your special selections. Be flexible in the days itinerary, discovering new places is always good.
Lunch with a glass of wine is inclusive with the tours.
Wine tasting is subjective, you either like it or you don’t. Spittoons are in every winery and no one will be offended if you spit it out, or tip it out, better if you don’t throw it up though. As you taste, the Cellar door staff will help you discover wines suited to your palate.
A great idea is to start the day with an empty carton, you may wish to buy one or two bottles from each winery and fill it as we travel. The last winery visited will mail it for you at your cost. Great way to remember your tour when sipping on Clare Valley’s finest at home.
Wineries offer very good mailing rates straight to your door. Mailing can be withheld until you are home from your travels.
For private groups of 8 or more we need book in for tastings. Tasting fees may apply. Why, to make sure we look after you with personalised service and have the staff available to do so.
Special interest and larger groups are very welcome, we just need to do some forward planning. I often have groups up to 30 and have hosted 60 guests. Great way for your Wine Appreciation Society or Beef Steak and Burgundy Clubs to see the Valley with full commentary as you travel.
Most request can be accommodated, Call and ask.
The most common observation from tours is, "We didn't know there was some much to do in Clare and the scenery is stunning". If you have the time we have three different tours designed to give a full insight to the region, we'd love you to join us. I like to see people leave the tour with a huge smiles having had a day to remember. Makes me happy.
