By limiting our tours to max 10 guests we have access to small family-owned wineries that have excellent wines but do not take bigger groups. Pickup from Hunter Valley only in luxury Mercedes Benz vehicles. My wife's ancestors planted some of the first vines in the Hunter Valley in 1853 and just never left. We have looked after visitors to our region since 1998. In 2008 we added some tours to our business to the delight of many guests. We offer 2 different full day tours, our very popular 'Progressive winemakers Lunch tour' and 2 half day tour to choose from. Or we can tailor a tour to suit your needs. Our aim is to show our guests great food, great wine and have loads of fun. Educational, yet light-hearted. Our tours are unique, over time, we have build up trust with local chefs and (boutique) winemakers, who all offer a personalised experience. Because we only have a small number of guests on our tours we can be flexible and tailor our tours to suit you. We can also assist with your accommodation needs if needed. « less

Highly recommend this tour if your after something more than the big bus tours. Small numbers (10 on our trip) Simon our driver was really knowledgable and friendly we had a great day with a similarly aged crowd (45-55). The pace was such that you didn't just rush from cellar door to cellar door we had time to taste and... More

This was the first time we had been out with this tour company and we all agreed it was the best tour any of us had ever been on in the hunter. Our tour guide, BJ, could not have been more accommodating or thoughtful for our tour, and went the extra mile to make day perfect. We loved the fact... More

I went on the weekend with 4 girlfriends and we all agree that this is hands down the best tour we have done in the hunter ( and we have done a few). Bj was our tour guide and he was brilliant. He went that extra mile to make our day special. Thankyou BJ and two fat blokes tour, you... More

Rather than trying to find excuses, I just want to give a brief explanation what had happened. When you made your booking I was on an... More

What a fantastically organised and thoughtful all day tour! From pick up to drop off we had great fun and had the opportunity to taste some delicious produce! Absolutely recommend! Do try not to fall over in the brewery like I did though....

We did the all day food and wine tour with Simon. His local knowledge and the Two Fat Blokes name gave us an experience of the Hunter Valley that we would not have otherwise had. The one on one time with industry professionals at each venue was particularly interesting. The wine tasting at Thomas Allen (with the wine makers themselves)... More

Definitely worth doing. Wineries visited were awesome and all the staff were excellent, friendly and knowledgable. Cheese and wine pairing exceeded all expectations.
