Hire & Hamper package - Our most popular!

“Great day” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 September 2015

We hired two bikes and did the Stanthorpe to Ballandean bike trail. The bikes were top quality and it was good to know Jon would come pick us up if we broke down. The packed lunch was amazing. Definitely recommend getting the lunch. Plus you get to keep the bag. A great taste of all local produce! 
At the end of the day we just called Jon and he came and he picked us up just as we finished our last wine tasting. A real must if you don't want to just sit on a bus and go where you're told on a granite belt tour.  Phillip M - TripAdvisor - September 2015
