“not bad for my first wine tasting trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

i am not exactly into wines but i still wanted to go to hunter valley to see my first vineyard. wine tasting comes second to mind. the problem was, it was still considered as winter and it wasn't the vineyard that i had in mind. however, i still found the trip interesting and learned so much about wines. i kind of like the way they described the wines and how they associated it based on their moods or state of mind. we visited at least 4 wineries which i believe were excellent choices. it wasn't a drink and run type of tour wherein the tour guide would hurry things up so we can hop on to the next winery. we had ample time to enjoy each stop and the in betweens were not so bad either. kim, our driver and guide kept as entertained the whole time with his stories and trivia. it was fun.

“Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We had a fabulous day in the Hunter Valley, visiting five vineyards throughout the day. Max our tour guide picked an excellent range of vineyard, they were all unique and produced an amazing range of wines.

“Good way to taste and not drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

I booked the tour on Friday afternoon and did the tour the following day. I was picked up from my accommodation in Pokolbin and we went to 4 wineries, 2 bigger and 2 smaller and Blue Tonge Brewery and Bar, which was a little pricey. The tour guide (the company had about 7 groups on the road on the day) was great and he tried to recommend wines/foods to each person.
With the number of buses let the company know where you want or don't want to go and they will try to match your requests.

“Very tasty and fun day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

I had keith as my tour guide / driver. We had 14 people on our van and by the time we got to our first winery it was as if we all were traveling together. Keith was very informative and not only gave us good information, but also had a great sense of humor n very personable. We go to 5 different wineries and had at least 6 tastings each (more at som ineries). Also ( at our own expense) we got to try a flight of beers at our lunch stop which was really good as well. The cheese shop was just okay, but that is because it specialized in soft cheeses an I prefer harder cheeses. The chocolate plaec was good, but relatively standard in my mind. Lastly in just setting up tour, Margo in customer service was very helpful, an great to work with. Defenetly recommend this tour, and Keith as your driver/ guide.

“No worries about drink driving with HVWTT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Max picked us up from our accommodation right on time, and from the moment we got on the mini-bus we knew we were in for a great day. Max is a very knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humour. We had a great international group on our tour, from a honeymoon couple from the USA, another American couple celebrating their 42nd wedding anniversary, English and Kiwi visitors to us from Queensland. Everyone joined in and no sad-sacks! Max took us to 5 wineries and cheese and chocolate tasting - a day very well spent. Highly recommended!
