Customer Reviews

  • Sea & Vines Weekend 2013

    We were looking for a company to transport us between home and a few wineries on the weekend of Sea and Vines so that we could enjoy a few beverages. I contact Off Piste to see if they were free for the day. They happily picked us up from home and returned at the end of the night with 3 wineries in between. Traffic at times around McLaren Vale was frantic on the Sunday, but luckily this was a 4WD tour and Ben was able to take us on a few short cuts down fire tracks and avoided all the slow traffic. It was a great way to see the vineyards and would definitely book him again. Thanks for the day Ben!

    Jeff Wright, Head brewer at Vale Ale Beer Co.
  • Breathtaking!

    The most breathtaking tour of Fleurieu Peninsula, with the most fabulously awesome tour guide!

    Etan Smallman - UK Journalist
  • WOW!

    Thank you so much for taking us out on such short notice before heading back to Melbourne. None of us really knew much about the Fleurieu and wow! Great tour, excellent service and we all can't wait to do it all again.

    Tanya, Bec, Sarah, Katie - Melbourne
  • Fabulous trip

    Fabulous trip around a unknown part of SA. 4WD through the southern Vales and out at Deep Creek was truly breathtaking. The surprise stop off with delicious canapes over looking KI was a real treat. Highly enjoyable tour.

    Fleur & Tom - Sydney
  • What an amazing adventure!

    My partner and I planned to fly directly to Kangaroo Island and by chance picked up an Off Piste 4WD Tour business card from Samuel's Gorge Winery. Curious, we called and booked that day. Both of us are so fortunate we did. Ben gave us a unforgettable day showing us so many wonderful things around the Fleurieu Peninsula which we had no idea about. What a beautiful part of South Australia! Wineries, wild 4WD tracks with kangaroos bouncing through the vineyards alongside the car! Amazing lunch at a restaurant Ben choose for us and got us a table that day. Very informative, and a comfortable trip with huge amount of stories and great humour. I would recommend Off Piste 4WD Tours to anyone with a sense of adventure. Good luck Ben!
