Having tried their tour in Yarra Valley, I decided to bring a friend with me on the Hunter Valley tour. They specialize in small group tours to the wineries using minivans which I prefer as there is no large crowd, today's group of 14 was a mixed of nationalities and friendly folks. Pick up points are available in the city... More

Fine sunny autumn day on 13Apr. The winery and cellar doors were good picks and a balanced mix. My favourite was Ernest Hill, where the wines and the ambiance put together a wonderful experience. Mistletoe was nice too. Cheese and chocolate weren't appealing to our group. But good that the village offered wifi access. Paul was our driver/guide. He was... More

Picked up from the Shangri La hotel promptly this morning and thoroughly entertained all day by Clint, who was on his first tour of the wineries and wildlife park. Very impressed with his knowledge and interpersonal skills and a great day was had by all. The Reptile park, both wine tastings and lunch were superb and extremely good value. Thanks... More

Absolute fantastic wine tour in the Hunter Valley. Three of us did this on Easter Sunday (one of the few companies I researched that were actually operating over the holiday period), so that was a good start. We had Rob as a tour guide and we was really awesome. Easy going and friendly with a very good knowledge of the... More

My husband and I booked the Hunter Valley Wine Tour online from the US. Our experience was overall very good. No issues at all with the booking. We were picked up on time as scheduled. The trip out to the region was a little long (should have brought a book), but lovely and the stop mid-way was nice. We visited... More

We booked a tour for my sisters Hen's weekend. Couldn't have asked for better. Rob was a great tour guide with a great knowledge of the area grapes. The lunch included was beautiful. The only down side was the cost. $110, its not unreasonable but have been on others were the price was less and it had lunch included.
