Day went so quick - very fun! Our small group clicked - good company, good wine & food, with lots of laughs. Our tour guide Cheeks was funny, friendly and caring, shared a few fun facts with us during travel time. Thanks for looking after us cheeks😊👊

This was a great day, we enjoyed it immensely. Cheeks was our Driver/guide, he is very knowledgeable, funny, a good driver and the bus was comfortable. The winery/distillery experiences were all excellent, lunch was delicious and we got along very well with the rest of our small group (bonus). Altogether a terrific tour, highly recommended.…

During the booking/organising period, each staff member I dealt with was polite and lovely. We were so excited for the wine tour to the Hunter Valley which was planned in celebration of my birthday. However, when we got picked up the driver was abrasive and arrogant. On the drive up, he asked the bus why we thought the Hunter Valley was so famous. A few people made gusses but he ended up telling us that the Hunter Valley is famous for no reason, except for the fact that it's close to Sydney. He said as far as wine goes, the Hunter Valley is pretty average and that we shouldn't be excited. This isn't exactly what you want to hear as you're on your way to a full day of tastings... On the same ride up, the air con was blasting heavily which we were grateful for as it was a hot day. However, later in the day as it got hotter we hopped back onto the bus and he had not turned the aircon back on, so requested that the driver please turn it up as we were all sweating. He insisted it was on, though it clearly wasn't. It was so hard to enjoy ourselves when all we could feel was the heat - one of my friends felt faint. On the drive home the aircon was magically working again and the cold chill was refreshing but also a few hours too late... There were a few other comments made but I won't ramble on. I'm not writing this review to complain at all. I had a lovely day celebrating with my friends. I'm simply writing this to share my experience. I think the package is definitely good value for money, and if it weren't for one person souring the mood then this would be a rave review. Hope this helps!…

Thanks for letting us know, Alex, that the day wasn't as good as it should have been. We'll address it with the staff on that day.
