Couples weekend away
Really enjoyed the tour. It was my second time and we only went to two places that were the same, but at these we tried different wines and cheeses in different sections of the winery, so it felt like completely new tour. Our driver Mark was so lovely! Very knowledgeable about the area, whilst also being fun and charismatic. The food at lunch was delicious and excellent quality. We got a taste of such a range of spirits, wines, beers, cheeses and chocolates. It was a great way to get a good broad view of what the Hunter Valley has to offer.

Amazing day with an amazing driver
Apr 2021 • Friends
We booked the wine tour pretty late and it was the best decision we made. An incredibly fun day despite the rain. The driver was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. The venues we visited were welcoming and lunch was scrumptious. To top off the great experience, when we stupidly forgot our delicious cheese on the bus (in an esky provided by the driver) he made a special trip back to our accommodation to get it back to us. Highly recommend!

Running late and rushed tour
Apr 2021
The Tour was running late so felt like it was extremely rushed throughout the whole experience, The driver was telling the wine tasters and guides that they needed to be quicker and hurry up. Chocolate tasting was pretty much non existent and cheese tasting was rushed and extremely quick with no explanation from operator. Lunch provided was good however and bus was very comfy

Not the best wine tour.
Apr 2021 • Couples
Not the best wine tour to the Hunter Valley winyards. Don’t recommend to anyone.
Driver / Guide always late, in a hurry. Not very pleasant, not funny at all, short in words and explanation about the trip and the area visited.
Also terrible choice of cellar-doors and winyards, not much interested about explaining and selling their own product, with poor quality service and product-tasting.
Disappointed as I have done much better tour in the recent past with local guide.

Thank you for your review. Being Easter Saturday all venues - including the James Halliday rated ones - were extremely busy so apologies the day wasn't as relaxing as usual. Our guide tried to stay on time to venues but matters outside our control kept popping up.

A nice day - don’t understand 5-star ratings though
Apr 2021 • Couples
The day was fine - no issues. But I have certainly had more enjoyable wine tours in the Hunter. Meant to finish at 4, didn’t get back to the hotel til after 5. Tour guide was very laid back but meant that we missed our afternoon activity booked through the hotel. Didn’t go to the best wineries, only visited 3-4 in 7 hours. Lunch was nice but overall I don’t think it was worth the $358 for 2 people when in reality I could have just driven us around for the same result (the amount of
Alcohol consumed today meant I would still be able to drive). I am not sure if Easter crowds have affected this review.

Thanks for your review. We're sorry you missed your activity. Our driver was unaware you had another commitment immediately after the tour, otherwise he would have changed the order of drop offs to get you back earlier. Being Easter Saturday all venues were extremely busy so it did make for several delays. One of our cellar doors is James Halliday rated, but we understand people's tastes vary.
