Canberra Wine Tour

17 reviews

The Canberra Wine Tour is a terrific full day tour, not only because of the magnificent wines you’ll taste and have the opportunity to buy, at a raft of cellar doors, but also for the beautiful countryside through Canberra’s wine region. These are real rural landscapes of Australia and many of our international visitors are often blown away with the beauty.

With Shiraz the flagship for reds and Riesling the flagship for whites in the Cool Climate Wine Region, as well as a multitude of other varieties; viognier, pinot noir, and cabernet, distinguished wine aficionados and novices alike are sure to find something to their taste.

Six of us had the pleasure of enjoying a canberra winery tour with this great company. Bob, our driver and guide, was excellent. He was friendly, patient and knowledgeable. We visited five separate wineries and now have new appreciation of Canberra wines and the district around Bungendore and Murrumbateman. I would highly recommend this company

A group of 10 friends and I went on a full day wine tour to the Murrumbateman area with Guide Joe of Canberra Guided Tours. Joe was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable about the area and the cool climate wines. He gave a great commentary and answered any questions we had and most importantly we had fun!. We visited 4 different wineries and he told us about each one. We would love to do another one with Joe and visit different wineries. I would definitely recommend Canberra Guided Tours.
