Puffing Billy with Wineries and Lunch

We enjoyed the tour. The bus driver provided an excellent commentary, the ride on Puffing Billy was great fun, the wine tasting and lunch at Fergusson's Winery and Restaurant was delicious and the wine tasting at Rochford Wines was even better. ...Allan A., United Kingdom – See more reviews
