Absolutely worth the money
A group of 3 of us came to the hunter valley for the weekend. We usually do the hop on hop off tour but with covid you need to book tastings everywhere so that kind of took out the freedom element of the HOHO option.

We instead opted for the beer wine and fork afternoon and evening tour for something different and we were not disappointed at all! It is such good value for money.
We went to two wineries, the mighty brewery and blaxlands. The tastings were all so good with a good atmosphere. We got “nibbles” at the brewery but it was basically like getting a kids meal each (chips and chicken). After the brewery we went to blaxlands for dinner and that was a big hearty meal. Most people got the steak which had no negative reviews, I got the pie as I was full from the brewery food but it was amazing. We also got a night cap tawny after dinner.

The time spent at each venue was a great amount of time, we didn’t feel rushed at all.
Robin our driver is a gem, she was prompt, so friendly, professional and patient! Sucks she couldn’t have joined us for the tour haha.

Thank you for choosing us again to look after you! Always a pleasure hosting returning guests. Just to provide feedback regarding the brewery. At the time of your visit due to Covid Regulations they couldn't serve "shared" plates of food for everyone to enjoy, which is why it was individually portioned as it was. We sincerely hope you enjoyed the nibbles with your beer tasting paddles. Robyn is a Super Star and we are very fortunate to have her! We hope to see you back again soon and appreciate your review :-)

The tour was perfect from the beginning. Pick up from the doostep, straight to multiple wineries with organised tastings, a popular bar with a beer paddle and finger food, and finishing off with a stunning dinner including more wine with the meal and for desert. Was certainly well fed and a little tipsy. Thanks Robyn for the amazing night!

Our tour was amazing, from the very start we felt at ease and were well supported through out the whole tour. Christie was amazing, giving us information about the area for us as first time visitors to the Hunter area and she made sure we had a great time!
Best experience!

Excellent way to tour around and finish with a nice meal
Oct 2020
Great organised Tour. Lots of fun, laughs and learned a bit along the way. Graeme was a great host. We visited a couple boutique wineries, a beer tasting and finished with an excellent meal. I won't put where we went as it is a nice surprise just to discover these venues and enjoy. This beats spending all day on a wine tasting tour.

Good value but not exactly COVID safe
Jul 2020
I'm not sure how to rate this because our host was friendly, the value was good, we had a great meal and visited several wineries we would have never tried, we even made new friends. The problem was we are in the middle of a COVID pandemic and we had 12 people in a 12 seater bus. There was no effort at social distancing at all. We were 6 seperate couples and everywhere we went, there was plenty of room to spread people out aacross tables and we were treated like a 12 person household. I understand it is probably hard to be profitable at a reduced capacity but I think EVERYONE on the tour was surprised that we were just packed in like sardines and in such close quarters the whole time.

The following review contains misleading information. The following response has been sent to the customer addressing their concerns and also reported to Tripadvisor. Our response and statement sent to the customer, is as follows; Dear Stevie K, We would like to thank you for choosing us to look after you! We value your feedback on our Wine, Beer and Fork Twilight Tour and are pleased you enjoyed the tour and felt this represented good value for money. We however are very concerned with regards to your comments around our Covid Policy and Guidelines our industry works to and felt this needed to be addressed directly with you, prior to publicly responding on Tripadvisor. It is disappointing when in the lead up to a tour, on the night or even after the fact we were not made aware of any concerns you mention until receiving a public post/review on our Tripadvisor page. Any concerns would have of been happily answered by any of our staff and reassurance given we are being compliant. As a Tour Operator and business we take the current pandemic extremely seriously and the welfare and safety of our customers and staff is our number one priority at all times. We as a business adhere to all Government Guidelines that relates to our specific industry that we operate under, along with information distributed by the Hunter Valley Wine and Tourism Association as to what each operator in the area needs to be doing to ensure a safe environment for visitors to the region. After being closed for 10 weeks, we certainly don’t want to be making any compromises. We are permitted as per the Public Gathering rule to have up to x20 guests seated on a bus together at any one time. From the 1st July the NSW Government advised that customers travelling on non-government transport services are able to be seated in any seat and do not need to be from the same household to travel together. In addition to this and as stated in our current Terms & Conditions, we advise all our tours are publicly shared and extra measures are taken with the cabin of the buses being regularly sprayed and cleaned with hospital grade disinfectant and there are hand sanitisers installed on each bus to use upon entry/exit and that only fresh air is cycled through the buses heating/cooling systems. We at this time are keeping our group sizes and numbers smaller than what is allowed being well below the x20 cap. Certainly isn’t a matter of being profitable, but a balance between accommodating our guests in the current environment and adhering to the guidelines as required. We would be more than happy to provide a copy of the official current guidelines for your peace of mind and would ask that you reconsider and revise your review taking into account the factual information enclosed and possibly expanding on the tour itself. Whilst we welcome and take all constructive feedback on board, your comments do give the impression (also seen to be somewhat misleading) that we are not a safe company to travel with and are not adhering to the current guidelines, which I am sure you can appreciate reputation is everything to a small business. Please do not hesitate to contact Management on 0455 535 035 or email: explore@ihophuntervalley.com.au to discuss any of the enclosed further.
