My wife and I were given a tour of several wineries and a couple of other attraction. It was just us and the owner Brian Metcalfe. The tour lasted for the whole day and was very interesting and very enjoyable. We were collected and delivered back to our self-cater base. Altogether a first class day. Lunch was provided.

Jimmy our driver was a nice guy. The bus was fine and the pick up on time at 7:10am. There was 9 of us on the tour so all of that was ok. 2 and a half hours to get to Hunter Valley from Sidney and the same on the way back was way too long. The lunch was ok... More

I took the Hunter Valley Wine Tasting tour with a group of coworkers (7 Americans and 1 Irish) and we all had a fabulous time. It is a very long day and drive, but worth it to see the beautiful country side and get a sampling of the valley's 172 vineyards. Our driver, Billy, was fantastic - extremely knowledgeable, personable... More

We booked it with a big, nice shop in The Rocks - they give us some extra info and we end up with a Boutique tour: small van, no more then 14 people and only three vineyards to visit, with enough time for tasting. We visited Iron Gate Estate and Ernest Hill Winery - both in Pokolbin and Savannah, in... More

Having been to Hunter Valley on my own before, I wasn't sure it would be worth it to join a tour. However, I found each individual cellar door experience more personalized and informative compared to when I walked in on my own. The discussions we had among ourselves as a tour group brought the tasting experiences to the next level.... More

My friends and I had an awesome time on this tour! We visited an excellent range of wineries and had a thoroughly great day. The service and value for money this tour offers is unbeatable - highly recommended.

I cannot say enough regarding what a wonderful time we had on our wine tour. I researched many sites when I was booking my trip from the USA, and had to rely on testimonials and reviews. I was not disappointed one bit. The designated pick-up stop was easy to find, the drivers (yes, we were fortunate to have 2, Geoffrey... More

I cannot for the life of me understand the five star reviews on this wine tour. I would not recommend this trip. It was a VERY long day, basically five hours driving and that does not count driving between the wineries. We were picked up at 7.10 am and dropped off in Sydney at around 6.30 pm. All five wineries... More

The day started on time and in style with their 16 passenger Mercedes Bus. Just the right group size to stop in smaller wineries and taste the very best Australia has to offer in this area. Five beautiful locations, a chocolate factory and lunch at the Hunter Valley Resort which was an attraction on it's own. Callum was an excellent... More
