Just been on the Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tour with 25 other people!! The tours are way to large and visit only the large commercial wineries. The tour only does 3 wineries different to what the website states and don't offer a lot of knowledge on wine tasting. I have been on four wine tours and the smaller ones are... More

Our guide, Tristan, was informative and friendly. The group was a nice size, approx 15 people. We set out pretty early, around 7 am but had a pit stop mid morning for some breakfast. We went to 5 different wineries. It was interesting to see the different set-ups; modern, traditional, big and small wineries. At each place, a guide or... More

My sister recommended this tour to me and it was excellent! We went to five different wineries and our tour guide, Tristan, was so knowledgable and enthusiastic. All the wineries were different, so we got a real taste of the area. The McGuigan winery was my favorite. I also enjoyed the wine and cheese shops we visited and the mushroom... More

Had the opportunity to take one of these tours recently. We were very well hosted by our guide Mick, who bent over backwards to accommodate anyone's needs, as and when they arose. Tour was a good mix or small and large wineries, at a nice leisurely pace. Savannah and McGuigan were highlights in terms of customer care and wine, with... More

Some of the wineries included Savannah, Lambloch, and Tempus Two, also included cheese tasting and chocolate. Lunch... More

Our guide, Jenny, was really awesome and made sure everyone really enjoyed themselves. It must have been painful watching us drink and having none herself though because she choose an excellent mix of wineries out of the so many avaliable so that we got a great mix of experiences. Had a blast.
