“Very relaxed and informative tour”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We were lucky to get a private tour for our day with Barry as our driver guide. The bus was comfortable and clean. We learned lots about the history of the places he took us and he was happy to give some personal recommendations to this wine noob on the winery visits. As you will read in the tour descriptions, this is a very flexible tour company in terms of the itinerary. If they can do it for you they will try and that's what Barry did.

“Brilliant Driver”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

After a wonderful , damn funny, very knowledgeable day in the Barossa Valley we arrived at our apartments in the dark to find that we were unable to access our keys. Our driver Gary stayed with us going above and beyond his duties and stayed with us until the situation was somewhat resolved through kiwi initative. He ensured that we were safe and sound before departing after a long day. Many thanks from all of us your kindness was much appreciated.

Hi Pam
Hahaha what a day it was!! We did have lots of fun and lots of laughs and still got to see some great sights. Disappointing it had to end the way it did for you with your accommodation but you managed to use it all to your favour in the end. Hope they refunded you for the unbelievable inconvenience. Subways to the rescue haha.....it was my pleasure to spend the extra time with you. Hope to see you all again. Garry

“Thanks Bruce and Paul. Great way to spend my birthday. ”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Had a great day today with Bruce our driver, who was great in choosing at least 7 cellar doors that we visited. Plus a look out and Maggie Beers. He was full of information about the area and put in extra time at the end of the day to squeeze in 'one more'. Thank you Paul for accommodating us with the extra tour you organized. I'd definitely recommend you to others, we enjoyed our day thoroughly.

“McLaren Vale Wineries Tour”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

The choice of wineries was very good for contrasting the various wine styles of the McLaren Vale. As part of that Paul took us to two family vineyards - Graham Stevens and Foggo's. These were the highlight of our week's stay in Adelaide. The fee was very reasonable.

The smallish group (7) made for an agreeable and relaxing experience. It's a more intimate experience than that of the larger Barossa tours, and the idiosyncratic niche the company occupies is very important as it is the only tour company operating in McLaren Vale.

Great to see the koalas!

Thank you for the tour Paul. We will be back. We recommend your tour highly.

“Great Stuff!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

We had a great day out with Barry whilst we were in Adelaide! He was prompt, courteous, fun & full of information.
Six women visiting from NSW, we prebooked a tour with Bums on Seats. We were so lucky to get Barry as a driver!! Having deferred to his superior local knowledge we set off for a variety of winerys, tourist attractions & scenic drives. Had a fantastic day! Nothing was a problem for Barry.
Cannot recommend Bums on Seats highly enough.
Visiting Adelaide? Do yourself a favour & book!
