Incredible Trip! Niki was the best
5 Stars - 12th February, 2020 - reviewed on Trip Advisor
Absolutely incredible trip through the outback. NIKI was the best tour guide I have ever had. She was GENUINELY friendly, knowledgable, and had a lovely demeanor at all times (even when it was 4am and other guides would’ve been grouchy). We were a big group, so I imagine with all the driving, cooking prep, organizing, and wrangling 17 of us...it was a lot of work for her- but she made it look EASY! She made sure everyone’s needs were catered to. She made sure no one got left behind on the hikes, while also ensuring that no one was being held back from continuing on. I myself am vegan and have never eaten so well on a tour! All tours nowadays SAY that they can accommodate a vegan diet, but they’re not actually accommodating and it is the bare minimum. Not only did I never go hungry, the food was absolutely DELICIOUS! So grateful to Nikki for this, as not having proper meals is what normally discourages me from signing up for tours of this length. I can’t speak for all the guides at groovy grape, but I would take another tour with Niki in a HEARTBEAT! And if you are lucky enough to get her as your guide, you will know why! Also: sleeping under the stars was magical, the swags are super comfy, and the hikes/walks are STUNNING. Big thanks to Niki and groovy grape for this unforgettable trip! I couldn’t recommend it more!!
Rock 2 Water....Woo!!

"When you get teary in the airport because your trip is over, you know it was either a really good one; or you're a raging emotional lunatic. On our first morning together Sid, our tour guide, promised that we were about to embark on "the 6 best consecutive days of our lives". We all laughed at his bold assumption, but to be fair he wasn't far wrong. In a nutshell this tour for me was great value for money; offered a quality guide who worked his bum off to ensure we had the best time; had well planned stops (with some additional surprise ones that might be a Sid thing); and a tasty food menu! I was completely surprised at how moved I was by the places we visited. I can safely say I highly recommend Sid and the Groovy Grape Tour company...Wooooo!"
Amazing Tour! wish it was longer....

"This was such a fun tour. Probably the highlight of our Australian trip so far.
Our guide Altair was amazing! Extremely funny, knowledgable and full of energy. His energy and enthusiasm for the job was infectious and it helped make so many lovely moments for our group. Altair made sure we all ate so well and had fun while we prepped the meals and so on. I would be happy to book a tour with Groovy in the future. Well organised, fun and full of adventure!"

"This tour was beyond my expectations. I almost didn't purchased this tour because of the price, but looking back to it: it was worth every penny and actually it is not that expensive at all if you see what you receive back for it. Our tourguide Bronnie was amazing, she knew a lot about the places we visited and talked about it with lots of enthusiasm. Besides that, she was a great cook that made every meal a pleasure to eat. We saw a lot without the feeling it was being rushed over. We had some beautiful hikes, great sunsets, amazing starry skies and over all a really nice tour."
Great Tour from Melbourne to Adelaide

"There is a lot of driving through some amazing places. Em, our very energetic and knowledgeable guide was lots of fun and got us up early everyday to make the best of the day. One of the things I liked most of this tour was the sort of community feeling given by the day to day activities done together, the shared accommodation and shared preparation of food. Favourite places we've seen along the way were the 12 apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, the temperate rainforest, Princetown hostel with an amazing star gazing sky, Mackenzie waterfalls,and the hike in the Grampians. The stop at the pink lake at the end was a nice touch!"
NO WORDS!! BEST DAY EVER

From the time we were picked up by Jerry Jane, to the time we were dropped back to our hotel we laughed until we cried. The value for money with the wineries was second to none. The tour was the perfect length of time. Three of us girls went for a 40th birthday trip. Perfect destination and perfect tour guide. The only disappointment was the fact that we were promised to meet the cutest wine dog at Kies Winery, but he had gone home :-(
Fab Fun, Food and New Friends

"Our fantastic tour guide Craig was so informative in so many ways, local history and culture, flora and fauna, he really knew his stuff and shared it happily. From the spot on pick up to the drop off the tour ran smoothly and calmly. The food was wonderful, so fresh and tasty and something different to suit all tastes and plenty of it, I was really impressed. I loved that we all mucked in and helped prepare all the meals, thatsso important in a group and when you are travelling alone. The accomodation was fine, clean and well kept. The guided walks were a real treat and the timing of everything was perfect to get the best from the area visited. I met some wonderful people from all over the world and made some new friends too. I was really impressed and will have no hesitation in booking again with this company and with Craig, what a grand chap, thank you. Ninn from the UK"
"Fun filled Barossa tour"

"I cant recommend Groovy grapes enough, by far the BEST tour company i have travelled with. From a fun filled day on the Barossa valley to the rock tour experience i will never forget. Both guides (Jerry then Jase) were extremely passionate about their jobs passing on as much local info as they could and having lots of laughs along the way. The itinaries were great and certainly packed in as much as there was to offer, you deffinetly get your money's worth out of these tours. I will treasure the memories made which will stay with me forever, Big love Groovy Grapes."
