Our tour guide for the day was Christian. He picked us up punctually from Melbourne and gave us his warm greetings on a chilly winter morning. The places we stopped by were great, the hosts were very professional and friendly. We had the best beef ever for lunch at Rochford before proceeded to a cosy family owned boutique wineries.
I had to take a break from drinking after 2 wineries, and Christian was hospitable enough to offer me his binoculars for kangaroos sighting. As a Malaysian who had not seen a real kangaroo, that was something really exciting. There were more to experience besides alcohols, savory cheeses, smooth gelato and free chocolates. It was a great learning and sightseeing experience with the tour. We liked how the group was small and not too commercialised.
