Chook and his team took our social club to the Strathalbyn races. They were there on time, helped organise all our stuff on the bus and were super friendly. They even took one bus back early for us as it was a blistering hot day at Strathalbyn

Probably the highlight of our first trip to SA. CHOOK specialises in small group tours to 'boutique' wineries in McLaren Vale. At the wineries we visited (4 in a day, plus lunch all included in the $140/head price) we were greeted in most cases by the owner/winemaker and had a relaxed and informative hour or so at each, tasting a...

I recently organized for a group of 21 members of a Sydney Beefsteak & Burgundy Club to spend three days in McLaren Vale. The best decision I made was to ask Chook and his great team if he could drive us around. He picked us up Friday at the Airport, drove us to the wonderful Adelaide Market and then down... More

We were at a wedding at a winery in McLaren Vale and a group of us decided that we had too much to drink and should drive back to the hotel where we were staying. We contacted Chooks and at very short notice, they were able to provide a mini bus to pick us up and take us back to... More

Can’t recommend Chook and his team highly enough. We did a wine tour with him and also used his services as a taxi around McLaren Vale and always friendly and prompt. Chook give a very personalised service and it feels like you’re out trying some wines from a couple of his friends. Nice and laid back with a focus on... More

You absolutely must do a tour with Chook when you visit the area. He's incredubly knowledgable, funny and just a genuinely nice guy. We'll definitely be back for another tour in the near future.

What a great day we had with Chook. Not only was he very informative about anything wine related, he is a genuinely nice guy. Each of the wineries that we visited was a family business and each was different. All had excellent wines to taste. Lunch at The Salopian Inn was most enjoyable. This tour is great value for money... More

Toured four McLaren vale boutique wineries with Chook and had a wonderful time. Chook is very knowledgeable and a great guide. Had a lovely lunch at Au Pear which was part of the tour. Didn't feel at all rushed and could take our time at each venue.

I have travelled many places but this little area of Adelaide is beautiful, what made it is special was Mr and Mrs CHOOK, this wine tour was the best. Both of these wonderful people made our tour special, they were well informed on the wineries and took us to a very special lunch meeting very special characters of the McLaren... More

We spent a great day with Kerry (Mrs Chook) visiting local wineries, learning about the area and the wines and stocking our cellar with great wines from the region. The highlight was a visit to Danshi wines and tasting 'new' wine from the barrel and meeting Steve the winemaker. Lunch at Vaserellis was delicious! Wonderful memories of a great day... More
