        10/10 Taste of the Hunter & Grant!!!
        I was planning my best friend's and over the weekend we had the pleasure of going through Taste of the Hunter as part of the weekends festivities. Suzanne was super attentive and helpful when booking in the wine tour and the locations we wanted to visit. We had the pleasure of being chauffeured around by Grant, hands down Grant made the day what it was, from the moment we met he made sure our weekend was full of fun. Both Taste of the Hunter and Grant made our weekend seamless from start to finish. Everyone's still talking about it, I highly recommend everyone book with Taste of the the Hunter Wine Tours as it was a great price and make sure to ask for Grant!!!

        Great Experience
        We had a wine tour last Saturday with Kevin, we had such a good time. Each venue we visited was great, there was enough time at each to taste the wines and have a look around. Kevin made sure everyone was having a good time. We appreciated being picked up and dropped off at our accommodation too - the whole day was organised and stress free. Thank you for being the highlight of our trip! Definitely will recommend and would come along again in future.

        BEST WINE TOUR!
        We recently booked for my sisters hens party and the wine tour and support with the day was fantastic, thanks to Suzanne coordinating it all and Kevin our wonderful bus driver! Suzanne booked everything for us taking away the stress of trying to call through to the different wineries, she always emailed back straight away! Kevin our bus driver was the sweetest man. I was personally very hungover on the Saturday and he was lovely enough to drop us off to the winery and personally go to the chemist for me to buy beroccas to help me get through they day! I cannot recommend this experience enough, definitely book if you haven’t already!

        Best Day Ever
        We booked via Suzanne for 18 people for my sons 21st!! We tried to contact a number of other tour companies but there was either no response or not a lot of choice. Suzanne was the exact opposite- she gave us soooo many choices and was very flexible! She came up with a perfect itinerary for us all! On the day everything happened on time and when it was supposed to. Our driver Jeff was a really lovely chap who was so easy going (and also put up with all our singing from the playlist we had created for the day on his blue tooth) and very attentive. All in all the most excellent day that my son says he will treasure forever,

        Amazing!!
        Suzanne organised our group of almost 20, our numbers were fluctuating closer to the date and it was no issue. Communication was great, we were given detailed information and answers on what would work well for our group and we had an amazing time. Ken was our tour guide and fantastic photographer. The relationship and involvement that Ken and the team have with the venues makes arriving and seating a breeze with very little work to be left to the group.

        Packed with value for money
        Tastes of the Hunter were amazing. Over a 2 month period they helped me organise a custom wine experience for 20 people. From the tour bus, to the venues to the pricing of each wine tasting, they shared great insight and knowledge which made the process a breeze. And the tour was wonderful! Great value for money. Definitely recommend!

        Half day private customised itinerary for 8
        Suzanne was very efficient and easy to deal with. She provided suggested itinerary options for our half day tour. We had the perfect mix of 2 wineries, Small Mouth Vodka (yummy flavoured glitter vodka), 4 Pines Brewery and then Harrigans for dinner, which included bus drop off back to our accomodation. Grahame our driver was so lovely, played ‘our’ music which at times was loud but it did not bother him at all. Nothing was too much trouble for him and it just added to our fantastic experience and day. Would absolutely recommend this company!

        Tastes of the Hunter is an amazing company, their organisation and hospitality was outstanding. A huge thanks to our bus driver Ken for being so friendly and getting us safely to each destination in the hunter and to Suzanne for making the whole process so effortless and providing me with amazing recommendations and a terrific itinerary! HIGHLY recommend touring with this company :)

        Wine tour Nov 2021
        Our private tour was a great success- the group had a great time and Jeff the driver was very friendly and professional -please pass on our gratitude to him. It was great to not worry about any details on the day and just relax and enjoy the time. A great way to do some wine tastings with a group of friends and nil worries of driving. Would defintely recommend organising a private tour with Tastes of the Hunter Wine Tours.

        Hunter Valley Wine Tour
        I couldn’t recommend these guys enough! Every detail from organising, Suzanne getting back to my emails so quickly and Chris our amazing bus driver making the day run so smoothly for the whole group! From the beginning our group stepped foot on the bus we felt so warm and welcomed by Chris and he ensured we had a great day! The day ran smoothly and we got to each place on time and also has a decent amount of time at each one - not once did I feel rushed or running late! If you want a day out with your friends, organise a wine tour with these guys - They do not disappoint! I know I will be doing it again some time in the future! ☺️

        Fantastic Day,Celebrating a 21st,Great wine tour
        What a great way to spend a 21st. We organised a wine tour for our daughters 21st.Sophie and 17 of her friends were picked up in Newcastle,chose where they wanted to visit,how great to individually cater the cellar visits and lunch spot to suit the group on the tour(with guidance and suggestions by Suzanne),visited those places,had lunch along the way and dropped back to Newcastle at the end of the day. Suzanne was so great to deal with,informative and helpful and so quick with her communication. Grant was their tour guide and bus driver,the whole group thought he was amazing,what a nice bloke and he helped make the day fantastic. We could not thank Tastes of the Hunter Wine Tours enough for making Soph's 21st a great celebration.

        We had the best day. John the tour guide was outstanding. His knowledge of the hunter region was impeccable, his jokes and banter were entertaining and he made sure the good vibes rolled on throughout the day. 10/10 John was a legend!!! Would highly recommend.

      I did this tour with a group of 4 friends. We were the first group to be picked up from Cessnock and our driver, Kevin was bright and early. He was patient with my group and other groups who needed a little extra time to get ready. He was very friendly and relaxed while remaining informative and professional.

      Our first stop was Piggs Peake Winery which was my personal favourite among the wineries. We also stopped at the Hunter Distillery for some spirits, where I made a couple of purchases (would recommend the lychee liqueur). After lunch, we stopped at a brewhouse, organic winery and chocolate/cheese shop. Although it was a wine tour, the trip included a perfect mix of other places to cater for everyone.

      I'd like to particularly thank our driver-guide. Kevin was an absolute legend. I lost my wallet at the Hunter Distillery and realised when we were at the next stop for lunch. I told him & he immediately went with me to check the minibus. It wasn't in the minibus so we called the Distillery but had no luck either. To top things off, one of the liqueurs purchased was damaged. Without hesitation, Kevin offered to drive back to the distillery on his break while we enjoyed our lunch. He managed to find my wallet and get the bottle replaced at no extra cost. He went above and beyond to help and make sure that we enjoyed our experience, without accepting anything in return. Thank you so much for going the extra mile!!

      I would highly recommend Tastes of Hunter Wine Tours to everyone! It's definitely a must if you're visiting Hunter Valley and thank you so much again for such a wonderful experience :)

      Kevin is a real asset to our team and an absolute gem on tour. I'm thrilled to hear that he could make your day special and despite losing the wallet you still had an awesome time in the Hunter. Yes Kevin let me know about the wallet and the bottle and glad we could get it sorted for you. Hope to host your group again in the future :) Cheers, Suzanne

      What a sensational day. I'm still buzzing. Joe was such a patient, funny and friendly guide & driver. Our group's experience was nothing short of remarkable, complete with punctual pick-ups & drop-off's, through to a comfortable time on the road between the various wineries. All the necessary safety precautions were also taken during these uncertain times to make our weekend lovely & stress-free. An enormous thanks to Suzanne, Joe & the rest of the Tastes Of The Hunter Wine Tours staff for a professional and favourable service. Big recommend!

      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.

      Strap yourselves in for wine, food and a show.

      #welovegrant

      Stand up comedians would be jealous of our driver. Timing, relevance and pure hilarity is Grant’s full time job and tour guiding is clearly his passion.

      People-Person-Grant quickly cemented himself as one of us, his dry sense of humour gave way to laughs before he’d even let us on the bus. At 9.25am we knew we were in for a ripper day.

      With Tastes Of The Hunter Wine Tours you can build your own adventure. Kudos to our party leader Abbie for picking such amazing venues. Grant offering tasteful snippets of information along the way, peppering the trip with his jokes that had us in stitches. Grant immediately became everyone’s best friend, personal assistant and cinematographer. We wanted for nothing!

      Swiftly sorting the Bluetooth connection Grant had our tunes pumping. Surprise horn toots startled and delighted us and the passers by, plus we never had to open a door. Grant was always there.

      As the tour was coming to an end, (the Hunter did not disappoint) at our request Grant drove at 5km per hour down our street, elongating the fun times, belting out Mumford and Sons alongside us as if we were in the band.

      Thank you Grant. Make sure you request this guy when you book…it will be the wine tour you’ll never forget.

      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!!

      Suzanne did a fabulous job of organizing our wine tour for 10 extended family members. We gave her a list of wineries/brewery/distillery and a lunch location we wanted to visit and she took it from there. Suzanne organized our itinerary, booked the sites and paid the tasting fees if required. Two hotel pick up and drop off points were not a problem. All communications prior to the day were answered quickly. She did all the hard stuff - we just enjoyed the day!
      Our driver Des was an excellent driver and guide. Very pleasant and accommodating. He walked us into each venue to make sure everything was ready for us. The day went without a hitch and everyone enjoyed themselves.
      Highly recommended.

      We had such a great experience this weekend. We organised a tour for a group of 24. Suzanne, the owner operator was amazingly helpful in making the day happen - she found and booked the places for us and offered a great deal of customisation to make the experience personal for us. So responsive, friendly and professional to chat to as well!

      Scott, our driver was awesome. Letting us play music and bring our own drinks with us for the day was a great touch that made it so fun. He even made a quick pit stop in town at the end of the day to pick up supplies, really went the extra mile.

      For what we got, the level of service and the day we had it was definitely value for money.

      If I'm ever looking for a tour again in the Hunter I'll be going through Tastes Of The Hunter first!

      20/10 recommend Tastes of the Hunter for a wine tour. Suzanne was such an amazing help with organising our tour and keeping us up to date with info. Suzanne was also super responsive to emails and prompt to return calls.
      On the day, we had Kevin as our driver and I cannot fault him. He made the experience so much better and made sure we were having fun.
      It is also very reasonably priced, and after contacting many companies it worked out to be the best.
      I would happily return for a tour in the future.
      Big thanks to everyone involved <3

      Was disappointed I paid $115pp (was it because I booked way in advance) others paid $85 (last minute bookings maybe) The tour felt disorganised, no storage for any purchases except on your lap. Cellar fees and lunch was at an extra cost. Chocolate tasting was on the bus. No cheese tasting at all. Craft beer was another expense when we stopped at the pub.

      Sorry to hear you were disappointed with the tour. It sounds like you have booked through an agent rather than booking with us directly and sadly agents will always charge a commission (that is how the travel industry works). We do not charge a different price when you book with us directly whether you book in advance or at the last minute. It is also quite clear on all of our tour advertising that the cellar door tasting fees and craft beer paddles are not included in the tour price and are items that you can pay on the day. It gives people the option to not have to pay for these if they are pregnant or don't wish to taste etc. The cheese shops are not offering tastings due to covid restrictions (also stated on our website) and the chocolate tasting must be conducted on the bus again due to covid restrictions (all tastings must be seated tastings to comply with government laws) and all tour companies are subject to this requirement until laws are changed (this is beyond our control and we have transparently communicated this). All of our venue visits are pre-booked and precisely organised (it is impossible to do so without organisation at the moment again due to covid restrictions) and the venues are working hard to cope with visitor numbers whilst keeping everything sanitized and compliant with all covid restrictions. Sorry to hear that you missed some of the details/inclusions regarding the tour.
