    They don’t deserve 1 star but can’t give zero. I booked this tour for a friend’s birthday in August and a few days before the tour I was informed that the tour was cancelled. I was asked if I wanted a refund or alternative date. I asked for a refund. Since my request I have received no refund and despite emailing and leaving a message on the answerphone I have not heard anything. The company owes me £218 which I paid over 2 months ago. I have been ignored and ripped off - and to make it worse they cancelled it not me and ruined my birthday present for my friend.

    "We were 6 couples who had booked this tour. The weather was lovely. The tour is recommendable, but there was room for improvement. There were WAY too many people in the tour group. 62 persons on the bus resulted in a lot of noise. It was difficult to hear what was being said around the vineyard. The first vineyard was pleasant to visit. They were very knowledgeable. We had good food for lunch. The second vineyard could have been skipped. Nothing was explained there. They only served tastings without tours or any history. I would recommend the tour, but the number of participants should be reduced."

    Excellent Court Garden Farm, nice picnick, nice experience! The owner Howard and his team very attentive to details, warm welcome! The second vineyard The bluebell estate with Artelium wines not as great as the first one, when you try wines you must have a olive orabit of cheese to really lift the taste of wine. The owners more business focus not so much on the people. Alan, the lady drinving the bus and the young guy as a bus guard excellent.

    What an amazing day. I was initially unsure as quite pricy but if you work out what you get it's good value. 2 wine tastings at 2 vineyards, lunch, the London bus & driver, plus a Great British Wine Adventures guide. The second vineyard, (and they vary, but Bluebell for us), was far superior and we had an expected amount of wine. The first one was a bit tight and they completely missed the commercial opportunity to sell people a chilled bottle of wine with their lunch? They were distracted by a bigger tour from another company I think and even the shop seemed unmanned? Didn't affect the day it was just odd. We loved it. 9 out of 10 easily.

    A really enjoyable day. We started at Court Garden vineyard in Ditchling where we had a short but interesting tour and good tasting session (not to mention a delicious lunch), and then went on to the Bluebell vineyard near Sheffield Park. Great wines and food and very friendly tour guides and driver. I would highly recommend.
