FOURTH TOUR WITH TASTES OF THE HUNTER!
Jul 2021 • Friends
This was my 4th wine tour with tastes of the hunter and it only gets better. We had Grant as our driver for the first time previously have had joe and Des who are all fantastic. Grant was great, so fun, professional and informative with the hunter valley and the history of wine. He also spent the day taking photos and videos of our group for us so we could enjoy ourselves. Suzanne is so easy to book our tour through, I tell her where I want to go and she will book the itinerary perfect to make whatever celebration we are celebrating a day to remember. The price is so reasonable and it is always a fun day had by all. I’m continuously recommending Tastes of the Hunter to everyone I know. I will see you guys again soon for our next wine tour!! Thanks Suzanne and Grant!!

Be Cautious
Jul 2021 • Friends
Be cautious booking with Suzanne during these Covid times. She will take your money and run if you are put into a lockdown due COVID. We live in Sydney with no choice but to cancel when put into months of lockdown due to the delta strain. She would not allow us to postpone our booking but wanted us to cancel & rebook paying the full amount again. Emails were rude and showed no empathy. These times are difficult for everyone not just her. She ended up refunding half of a $1000 booking. We will be rebooking with a different company when we get out of lockdown so her loss and another companies gain.

Sorry to read your review and we do hope you are safe and well at this time. I can 100% say that I have never been rude or unempathetic to anyone as it's just not in my nature so I was disappointed and quite surprised to read this. We have rescheduled many tours for guests and we try to be as flexible as possible but sadly if a cancellation is on short notice, it may not be possible to do so if we are obligated to other parties at that time (most tour companies work this way where advance organization is involved). In such an instance we only ask to cover costs and we are very upfront and fair with our terms. We have a strong history of delivering excellent tours and we only ask to be able to cover costs where a reschedule isn't possible due to short notice so we can continue to offer high quality tours in the future. We hope you find what you're looking for and all the best.

Best wine tour ever!
Jul 2021 • Friends
I organised a wine tour with tastes for my birthday. They organised everything for the day from pick up to drop off, and worked around specific requests I had- including changes to best suit us. Our bus driver Joe was just amazing! So fun and friendly and happy to have a laugh with us crazy bunch. We had the best day and I couldn’t recommend an organisation more!

Fantastic Day!
Jul 2021
Our bus driver Grant was incredibly friendly and went above and beyond for us throughout our tour taking amazing photos and videos throughout the day and giving us little bits of information about the cellars that we were visiting. The cellars that we visited were also incredible particularly Earnest Hills with their amazing presentation. Everyone who attended the tour on the day thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Thank you incredibly much.

A Big Thank You
Jun 2021 • Couples
A big thank you to Suzanne for helping us out and for a fantastic day. We had booked with another tour company who had to cancel the afternoon before our tour date. Suzanne juggled things around to fit us in and we couldn’t have had a better day. Great people in the bus, great cellar door selection, and Suzanne’s local knowledge and friendly personality was impressive. We will be booking again👍

Awesome tour

Could not recommend Tastes of the Hunter Wine Tours more! I booked directly through Suzanne, who was extremely helpful in organising the best day for us, and was more than happy to answer any queries throughout the planning process. We had a great day visiting a variety of venues, there was something for everyone within our group. Our driver Ken was amazing and really added to everyones enjoyment of the tour.

Awesome Day!!!
May 2021
This was such a good tour!! I managed to get a group of 11 girls for my birthday to take a trip to the Hunter Valley and from the get go when I found Taste of the Hunter, Suzanne was amazing. Suzanne was super helpful and always offered to help where she could. We then had Ken as our bus driver and he was a legend! So patient and easy going, really enhanced our day. Would recommend for some great times!

Fabulous Day!!
May 2021
We were a group of nine celebrating three 50th Birthdays in May. After doing a little sleuthing I found the tours operated by Tastes of the Hunter Wine Tours offered more inclusions at a reasonable cost. From the initial inquiry I found Suzanne to be extremely helpful and offered suggestions for us to tailor our tour to cover gin, vodka and schnapps distilleries as well as craft beers.

We were lucky to have Suzanne as our driver and the pick up/drop off from the Crowne Plaza was very convenient. Suzanne's knowledge of the area and her calm, friendly manner along with a great sense of humour ensured we all had a fabulous day. Suzanne was also gracious enough to provide a short detour on the way back to the Crowne to show our travelling companions our soon to be new home as we will shortly be relocating to Cessnock.

We cannot recommend Tastes of the Hunter Wine Tours, and particularly Suzanne, highly enough for a wonderful day. Here's hoping our take home goodies last for a little while otherwise we will be booking another tour!!!
