Just returned from Hunter Valley with family members. Had a great day touring the wineries with James. The wineries were all interesting and the wineries enjoyable. Lunch was pre ordered so we didn't have to wait long. All enjoyed our lunch at the Blaxland Inn. Went to the Smelly Cheese shop and tried some of the different cheese and also... More

Definitely a trip to recommend - James was knowledgeable about the region, vineyard and wines and the wineries he took us to were fantastic.

I'd certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a personal, interesting insight into the... More

We have just returned from a weekend in The Hunter celebrating my partner's 30th birthday with 12 friends. We had two days of winery tours with James and his wife Adrienne and absolutely recommend their services! They are both friendly, knowledgeable and were super accommodating to a couple of last minute changes and a mix up with timing because of... More

We were recommended by our accommodation (The Grange on Hermitage) to do this wine tour and we were not disappointed. The bus arrived on time to pick us up and we were the first passengers of a full bus. We went to 4 different wineries, cheese shop, chocolate shop, and a pub lunch that was ordered in advance so we... More

I've done a couple of wine tours before, but I found James a really helpful and lovely guide. We went to some beautiful wineries including ones I'd never heard of before, and the whole tour went very smoothly - we even got a recommendation for dinner!

Brilliant - had such an awesome day - the girls and I were still on a high on Monday morning when we all went back to work! Because there were 7 of us, James advised us that we could have a personal tour of the winerys in an 8 seater 4WD. It worked out at $77 each. Little did we... More

Thanks so much for your kind words - it was great fun for me as well. There is an old song "Girls just wanna have fun!" See you all next year. Remember if there are more than 7 we have a 12 seater. Cheers, Adrienne More
