Fun day out

With a bit of pre planning you can really enjoy your day at several vineyards. We managed to tee up with a cave tour at one stop and even tried one vineyard not on our original list! Bus driver went over and above to collect a phone that was left behind at one of the stops.

Like clockwork

This is our second trip with Hop on Hop off and it is well organized and easy to plan what you want to do. We did two favorites from last time and two new ones. There are still plenty more for us to try next time. The ride is comfortable and the drivers knowledgeable and get the pickups and drop offs right on time. We will do this again and again. Many thanks.
