A wonderful way to experience the east coast of Tasmania
rcp-ontour (source: TripAdvisor)

Our small group of family & friends have not long returned from an amazing ebike trip with Tour de Vines down the east coast of Tasmania from Launceston to Hobart. Every aspect of our trip was a highlight. The itinerary was well paced with bike riding & enjoying various wine tastings along the way. The accommodation was excellent as were the meals. But more importantly than any of these were the 2 people who accompanied us throughout the tour. Fuchsia was our support rider who not only rode every day with the group, but kept everything running smoothly so we could all just relax & enjoy the ride. Her organisational skills coupled with her enthusiastic approach to everything was such a delight to experience. Bernard our amazing support vehicle driver was so much more than a driver. He always ensured the bikes were charged & ready to ride. His knowledge & experience were invaluable. I can honestly say our bike ride with Tour de Vines was definitely enhanced by having Fuchsia & Bernard as part of the team. I would also like to acknowledge the role of the owner of Tour de Vines – Damian. From my very 1st original enquiry Damian at all times has been professional, courteous & attentive to my questions & emails. Our small group had a fantastic experience with Tour de Vines & hopefully we will be able to enjoy another ride in the future.

An excellent adventure

The Tour de Tasmania was the second Tour De Vines trip we have done as a group. And it proved to be as good as the first. The guides, Joe and Bernard, were exceptional. Their combined experience, knowledge and enthusiasm added so much value to our trip. The accommodation at Freycinet was spectacular and the food along the way was terrific. There was more biking on the road than I had realised but the support vehicle behind was comforting. I also appreciated the tailoring of the trip to the wants of the group. We had a fabulous time.

Amazing local food, wine tasting, stunning scenery and cycling!

Amazing Tour de Vines Bike tour in Tasmania
SusanMH5656 (source: TripAdvisor)

I recently completed a Tour de Vines Bike Tour on the East Coast of Tasmania, with a group of 6 other friends. Simply put, it was AMAZING adventure, greatly supported by the professional, humorous, knowledgeable, and ever-caring duo – Bernard and Fuchsia. It wasn’t long before we realised they were much more than tour guides, with their enthusiasm being infectious, and their friendship much appreciated. We are all keen to do another trip with Tour de Vines and would thoroughly recommend them. And if we are lucky enough to be supported once again by Bernard and Fuchsia, well, that would be the icing on the cake! Many thanks to you both for a memorable and most enjoyable experience!

Pretty perfect holiday

Led by our superb guides Fuschia, full of energy, always looking to improve our experience and maximise fun, and Bernard for whom nothing was a problem, looking after our bikes, route and safety. Our group had a truly fablous time holiday and unique experience of this beautiful part of Tasmania.

What a wonderful cycling trip we had from Launceston to Hobart. Over 8 days the Tour de Vines team provided a great platform for us to enjoy the road, accommodation and food. Our lead Fushcia was engaged and enthusiastic and was very conscious of ensuring we enjoyed the experience. Bernard brought deep knowledge and understanding, making the trip a great success. A lot of fun.

Wonderful Experience
Martin M (source: TripAdvisor)

With some friends (old and new) we experienced a fabulous time cycling from Launceston to Hobart. Our guide Fuschia was an absolutely wonderful person with boundless energy and a keen sense of each individuals needs. Bernard was a fountain of knowledge on biking and an expert in repairs and taking care of the clients. With this team we had a great time. We experienced the wonder of the Tasmanian eastern coast and enjoyed some fantastic food and wine. We are already planning a return trip.
