My boyfriend and I went on the Hunter Valley wine tasting tour in early August, and had a terrific day. Our driver was very helpful and friendly, the mini bus was comfortable, all of the wineries we visited were different and very cool, the lunch was great, and the Hunter Valley region itself was amazing! I would highly recommend this... More

A terrific day out. Great driver/guide, comfortable modern van, hotel pick up and drop off, lovely scenery, compatible small group from several nations. Tastings at four wineries, which are subject to change but include both corporate and family-run. Lunch at Blue Tongue Brewery. When asked by the tour company which level of lunch you want to pay for in your... More

I did this tour with my boyfriend as a birthday present and really enjoyed it. We were picked up from outside the YHA Central at 7.30am (it was worth the early start!) and had a 2 hour journey to Hunter Valley in a very comfortable mini bus. The tour guide, Jim, was excellent and gave us a little history lesson... More

We had a great time on this tour! We were staying in the Hunter, so were the last to be picked up in Pokolbin. Everything was on time, smoothly run and just so easy! It's the best kind of tour when everything is super easy, but it doesn't feel tooooo structured. Great selection of wineries and the mandatory must-stops to... More

We really enjoyed our day trip with Hunter Valley Wine Tasting tours. Our driver Rob was fantastic. Funny and knowledgeable. The beef cheeks we ate at the Blue Tongue Brewery for lunch were really tasty. 4 boutique wineries, 1 brewery, The Smelly Cheese Shop and the distillery made for a really full day of tasting and shopping. All in all,... More

Our guide, Kalum, was awesome! Very patient and a great sense of humour. The lunch menu was a little pricey but overall very good.We would , definitely,... More

Visited 3 wineries and one brewery on this full day excursion. Coach was modern and clean with pleasant driver. Lunch was ok, those who had salmon on pasta suggested the salmon just swam through it. Would skip the $15 tasting of beers, no time to enjoy. The mcguigans winery at the end of the day was great. Trip to village... More

We booked a Hunter Wine Valley tour in July and had a great time. The journey was about 3 hours from Sydney (including a quick stop) but it was very scenic and nice to see another part of Australia. Our driver Callum was very good and ensured we had a great day. We visited quite a few vineyards and some... More
