        Started with Two Fat Blokes and ended up one broke couple!!
        What a great way to explore the Hunter! Thanks to our driver, Chris, and the wonderful wineries, it was a great experience! There was so much wine and food.

        Fantastic half day.
        Our "fat bloke" was Julz, and we knew from the pickup that our tour would be fun. She has huge experience and family connections within the wine industry in the Hunter Valley. The tour was full of info and fun facts. We had a great time and would highly recommend this tour to everyone. I would have loved to add the chocolate tasting, but I'm happy to have only done three wineries. Thanks, Julz, for a great experience

        A sensational day!
        Julie was a fabulous host, taking our small group to a range of unique vineyards. She was very knowledgeable and passionate about the Hunter region and ensured we were well looked after. The delicious local produce was exceptional and the tour was excellent value for money. We highly recommend this tour.

        Absolutely fantastic
        My wife and I had a fantastic day with Dave as our guide. He was awesome, lots of laughs, full of knowledge and great stories. We went to some fantastic venues, including 'Wine Lab' that was my favourite with Nathan as our host there - great wholseome and homely venue - I'd enjoy spending more time with Nathan over some drinks. All venues were well chosen and very suitable. Plenty of wine tastings and also some cheese and chocolate. Highly recommend 2FatBlokes for a Hunter Valley Wine Tour - would definitely go again. Thankyou for a great day.

        Such a great day from start to finish!
        We had such a great day on the full day wine tour over the weekend! The full day from start to finish was so enjoyable and packed full of lots of different things we especially liked the wine and cheese pairing in two fat blokes. Our lovely tour guide Andy picked us up from our accommodation and provided lots of fun and jokes throughout the entire day there was never a quiet moment. The wineries that we went to were all lovely and we really liked the fact that they were boutique made it more special if you wanted to buy a bottle knowing you wouldn’t be able to get it in your local bottle shop. It’s worth every penny you definitely get your value for money and we will definitely be back again. It was great to find a tour that picked you up direct from your accommodation also as we were staying on the outskirts of cessnock and were worried about how to get from place to place it took all the hassle out of the planning of the day.

        GReat!! Thank you to Glen our guide!
        Absolutely incredible!! Been to the Hunter before on other tours and this one was the best. Great tour group, lovely wineries, the cheese experience attached was a must. What made this the best however were the vibes - a big shout out to our guide Glen. He was so well informed and just a lovely person. Created the nicest energy on our trip.

        Thoroughly enjoyable but probably a bit overwhelming for most
        My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our full day tour. We actually booked the midweek accommodation and tour package. Staying two nights at the Leisure Inn, which was OK but we would probably go for a place just a little more upmarket next time. Our host, Julz, was terrific. She has an incredibly extended Hunter Valley family with relatives involved in all aspects of the industry so she knows what she's talking about and kept us entertained the whole day. The tastings where all great but after lunch we were pretty sloshed so no real serious tasting occurred, just enjoying the experience. A special mention of Caitlin at Tempus Two wine/chocolate paring. Being pretty tipsy by then and listening to some of her interesting life experiences had our group in disbelief and fits of laughter (anyone who had her for their tasting will likely know what I mean). I definitely recommend a tour with Two Fat Blokes but, in hindsight, we would only do the half day as the full day is just a bit too much.

        Excellent. Best wine tour I’ve been on.
        Greg was a great guide and made sure everyone in the group had a fun day. Very knowledgeable about the wineries and great banter. The wine tasting experience was also excellent.

        A fab day out! Our guide Glen was great! Friendly, great sense of humour & very knowledgeable! The wineries were all great too & the grazing platter for lunch was yummy! Glen even dropped a few of us off at a nearby pub after the tour so we could carry on the fun!! 10/10 day…I’ve already re-booked for December!

        Private tour with friends
        Overall an enjoyable experience. Staff were very communicative and helpful in arranging the booking and customisation of our tour, providing some a number of recommendations for us to choose from. The day was relaxed and we weren't rushed between venues. We visited 4 vineyards and the service was very good at all of them. We were scheduled for a late lunch but after generous pours at our first 2 tastings we really needed some food and our guide was able to swap our 3rd tasting and lunch around which was greatly appreciated. Lunch at the Wood was superb. Our guide was good and did the job but would have liked him to share some of this knowledge about the region with our group.

      I really do not recommend this half-day tour , I have been on a number of tours in the Hunter and this was the worst value by far. We got picked up and they drove 5 mins to their own property where we sat down , no view, and served their own wine , with some cheese . The next one the service was slow and again inside and the last one was inside again, service was a lovely couple.

      In summary, we never got to sit and enjoy the Hunter beautiful valley or the amazing vineyards which I was truly disappointed about rather felt I was being sold their own wine to be honest. We had my son who could not drink and they served him tap water at the 3 stops , they charged him full price of $89 as they said he took up a seat we were a group of 11 as it turned out we had the van to ourselves. Not a good experience compared to the others I have been on.

      Had a half day tour with Bill, our tour guide who was friendly, knowledgeable and quite humorous.

      The wineries we visited were lovely, the hosts/hostesses welcoming and and the wines we tasted were varied. The cheese and wine paring section of the trip was really informative and "yummy". Needless to say several bottles of wine and a selection of cheese were purchased.

      This is the second time we have travelled with "Two Fat Blokes" and would not hesitate to do so again.

      We can recommend this company to anyone that wants to go wine tasting in the Hunter Valley.

      It’s my second time in Hunter Valley and I had brought a friend with me. I want her experience with wine tour to be beautiful and memorable. Well!! Juls the lady tour guide from the Two Fat Blokes made it happen! She’s fun to be with. Her beautiful character and talent made the tour an exceptional experience we will never forget! She’s knowledgeable and very professional (with some good humour to chuck in) in what she does!!
      She made our group talk to each other - by the end of the tour we we’re all singing our hearts out and enjoying each others’ company. Get off the bus if it’s not Juls. 😂

      No, kidding aside.. this woman should have some pay raise for the job well done!!

      We booked this tour off of multiple recommendations - and boy do we see why. We had, hands down the best experience with two fat blokes on their half day snapshot tour. We headed off at 2pm not knowing what to expect, only to have one of the most memorable days ever. We pet some beautiful dogs,  drank (a LOT) of beautiful wine, filled up on cheese, and had the absolute pleasure of meeting the friendliest and funniest tour group of all time (shoutout to jodie, shane-o, anna and daniel).

      Julie our driver was the best guide we could have asked for, after a little mix up that left our food at the two fat blokes restaurant Julie went back to two fat blokes just to grab our dinner and drop it off back to our hotel despite that making her late for her own dinner plans, this was the kindest and most above and beyond service we have ever experienced.

      The only bad part was the tour ending :(

      We had a great time on our half day tour!
      Our driver Bill was really lovely and very knowledgeable about the area and most importantly, the wine.

      We had a good intro to wine in the Hunter valley and would recommend this to anyone interested in checking out the hunter but is short of time.
      I definitely plan to try a full day tour next time I am in the area!

      Great day spent with “Two Fat Blokes”! 6 of us started with delicious share plate lunch + reasonably priced wine from the cellar door. Rachel & Wanda were very welcoming, we had such a fun lunch. From there we started our half day winery tour with Andrew....a lot more fun to be had!!! Only down side was that we were so full from lunch we couldn’t appreciate the cheese & wine pairing.
      A fantastic day out & can highly recommend.

      Great experience! We started with the cheese and win tasting experience and then visited two other wineries. We liked starting with the wine and cheese pairing and then moving on to other wineries. Our guide (Andrew) was very personable and gave a good amount of detail regarding the region and wineries we were visiting.

      As a tour package, the attention to detail was really good. For instance, making sure we had a list of what we were tasting at each winery (and some pointers beforehand on the ‘must try’ wines), and a box for each group to store their cellar door purchases. We also enjoyed the fact that we had a reserved table at each cellar door so our tasting experience was fuss free.
      We liked that there was a really good mix in the tour group, from retirees to undergrads…
      We ended the afternoon (early evening) with music playing as each group was dropped back to their accommodation - a terrific way to conclude the tour! We’d recommend this tour as a good way to explore a few wineries at a leisurely pace.
      The tour was a small group and we had door to door service.

      Amazing, knowledgeable tour guide (Andy) was incredibly patient, friendly and took us to 3 boutique wineries; Hungerford hill, Hunters dream and 2 fat blokes winery for my best friend’s birthday. Standout wines included the Semillon, Shiraz and Moscato. At our final stop, 2 fat blokes we had an incredibly paired cheese tasting where the birthday girl got some extra attention which she really appreciated (extra cheese plate, froze and a free jam)+a birthday song. Cheese standouts included the Labne, Feta cheese and Brie. Andy even gave us extra time (tour was supposed to finish 5 but 5:25 we were still at the last winery) so gave us an extra extended, amazing experience! Perfect amount of different wineries and settings too- will come back without a doubt. Thank you Andy and co!

      Prompt pick up with great communication about meeting place and time. Small group and mix bunch of people. Due to our wine intake everyone was friendly. Guide was organized and approachable. dad jokes were welcome from our guide.
      I recommend this tour as 3 wineries is enough in one afternoon.

      Too many tastings included Chardonnay. Is there an excess supply the Hunter are trying to off load?
      The wineries we went too had affordable wine on the low end of cost. Great for a first time visitor experience to the winery. This was not my first visit to the Hunter Valley and do have my favorite wineries, that I visited the next day.

      Every aspect our our wine tour was wonderful. Comminication on pick up time, punctuality, local knowledge, clean bus and extensive wine and cheese knowledge. The 3 vineyards were all very different and our tastings weren’t rushed or pushing for sales. Just perfect. We couldn’t have been more delighted. Highly recommend this tour. Thankyou 2 Fat Blokes tours.
