OK, so I'm a pretty tough critic. My 18 year old son and I went on the same tour as Adam S. Everything he says is right - 4 different koala spottings within a couple of hours is pretty amazing, as are the views, the careful, patient and relaxed interaction of Ian with the group. Not to mention the quality... More

Ian's trip combining wineries and mountain biking is ace. We were lucky- saw multiple kangaroos and koalas up close, I don't know how he spots them! Despite the heat had a great ride, and that heat made our final stop at the beach and water so much more inviting. Great group, very well maintained bikes, and carefully selected wineries and...

This is a great way to both do some wine tasting and see the stunning Maclaren Vale scenery. The bike riding segments are all fun and well guided by Ian (who has a knack for being able to spot koalas at speed from 50 metres away) and the wineries and lunch were all delicious. After lunch the group settles on... More

Take some fabulous Australian sunshine, the stunning hills of McLaren Vale, two beautiful wineries and a microbrewery, add a great tour guide and some lovely people (also on the tour) to a delicious lunch and what have you got? A fab day out.

With my family of 5 we had a wonderful experience. The tour had it all, great bikes, enthusiastic, informative tour guide who kept all on the tour in mind as we traversed the mountain. The visit to Cleland was the added bonus to feed the wildlife even for us Aussies, but for our Finnish visitor a treat. A cuppa and... More

Enjoyed the McLaren Vale tour with EscapeGoat. Well organised, lovely lunch, just the right amount of tastings and enough riding to be enjoyable. Weather wasn't perfect but showers didn't spoil the experience

We were on a longer family holiday Campervan-cruising through South Australia. My son - an avid mountain biker - spotted so many challenging mountain bike parks along the route but always sighed in despair because he had not brought his bike along. In came Escapegoat to the rescue. The reservation was uncomplicated. Ian and Deborah shared so many tips nearby... More

Great experience. I was only after a bike hire and picked it up right next to the trails I wanted to ride. They are super friendly and provide good advice!

We have one 8yo with us. It was an exciting trip for everyone. There are some slightly challenging corners but overall, it was real fun and adventure ! Also get to pat and feed the Kangaroos and wallabies. Free roaming koalas were spotted along the way. Our guide, Ian, was fun and was helpful & patient with our 8yo. Escapegoat... More
