“A great excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Our guide, Brian, planned a thoughtful tour of local wineries which included not only samples of superior wines but interesting information and anecdotes from the winery hosts. We enjoyed the ambiance, tastes, pace, and scenery. We planned this adventure months ago, and it exceeded our expectations. What a lovely travel memory of Australia!

“Most enjoyable trip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Trying to book on late notice on a Saturday of the Easter long weekend. Not an easy thing to do. They were very helpful at organising a different day on that weekend and ended up letting me know as soon as there was a cancelation on the Saturday that I wanted. All emails were replied to very timely and very helpful. The day itself was great, I recommend choosing the, buy your own lunch option, then you get to choose what you want on the day. The bus was on time picking us up outside the hotel. The tour guide/bus driver had a good sense of humour and made the tour fun. There was no pressure into buying any wine on the day, however the names and prices of what you are tasting are all there if you choose to do so. Overall I recommend for all ages 18+ of course.

“MORE than just wine tasting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We highly recommend this tour! We expected to taste some good wines. We did not expect to see beautiful rolling hills, and kangaroos relaxing in a wooded area next to one of the pick-up points! We did not expect to taste an assortment of cheeses and olives, or to taste gourmet candy! We did not expect to get a tour guide who was one of the best we have ever encountered! Keith Bayley is knowledgable, friendly, and professional and we know that our tour was better because he was our tour leader!

We had selected the gourmet lunch option and it was fabulous! I am not normally a fan of squid, but loved the squid that was served as part of this lunch. A few people on the tour had selected the light lunch and were VERY disappointed, especially after they had walked past the dining room and seen what the rest of us were getting. I strongly suggest that you spend the few extra dollars and get the gourmet lunch! YUMMY!

“We loved the Hunter Valley and the wine was excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We did the Gray Line tours, it was fine, but I am sure others were good as well. The Hunter Valley wines are great and with many wine tasting sites to visit.
