DAN - TOUR GUIDE
Andrew has experience covering roles starting from Mail Room to Board Room and everything in between. What Andrew really enjoys today is people. The ability to be part of a group and share experiences in our Tours is an integral part of what he want's to bring to every tour runs. Each tour is a new adventure to explore the ever changing sights and tastes that we can experience as we visit the wineries and sample the Range and Vintages through the tastings process. Our tours are FUN and cater from the Wine Novice through to Connoisseur.
SEAN - TOUR GUIDE
Dave has been in the tourism industry since the dawn of time. Dave has worked as a Tour Guide and wildlife keeper all over East Queensland and LOVES the outdoors. His enthusiasm and positive nature will instantly rub off on you the moment you jump on one of his tours. Dave’s guiding experience ranges from 4WD Driving, Snorkelling and Sea Kayaking and now he is thrilled to part of The Vino Bus family. When Dave isn’t touring he’s busy snake handling, camping, exploring and feeding his love for adrenaline on his motorbike. When Dave isn't enjoying a good Queensland drop, you may spot him blasting around Tamborine Mountain on his Triumph.
