We took this tour from Sidney. What they don't tell you is...it's a 3 hours travel time to Hunter Valley. and 3 hours return time. Only one restroom stop going and coming back, at the half way point--1 1/2 hours out. You get to see allot of the country side...You visit 3 wineries, and only one was the the best, where you have lunch. To me, this is to much travel time spent on the road, for a 3 winery tour.

An excellent tour of Hunter valley wineries. Our driver was very friendly and helpful. The wineries and their wines were great with good variety, generous pours and knowledgeable servers. Had a great time.

Participated in a wine tasting tour of several wineries in the Hunter Valley; a great day - started with a coach pick up in Sydney near Central raiilway. Our host for the day told us what we would do during the day and that along the way on Tourist Drive 33, The Great North Road, we would have a stop off so that we could explore a little village along the way - Wollombi - just delightful and will definitely go back and stay for a weekend. Stopped at a couple of wineries and had private taste testings hosted by winery staff. None of the stops at the wineries were rushed which was fantastic - plenty of time to taste and purchase. Lunch was in a lovely restaurant in the Polkobin area and we had the chance to go to a Chocolate Fair in the area - a lovely way to finish our wine tasting. All in all a fantastic day out with friends.

Peter, our guide, was great. Very thorough in his explanations and exposing us to the area.
Visited a good variety of cellar doors, wineries and chocolate shop.
Fun group that we ended up getting to know. Saw some kangaroos.
Wonderful, comfortable trip, and great value for the money.

We had a great day on our tour with Bill, he was very friendly and helpful. The wineries selected were a good variety and the two other stops at chocolate stop and olive place was great. I ate so much cheeses, wines, chocolate, breads....it was so good, the tasting and trying is exactly why you go on a tour. All places selected were very generous. The bus was great, very comfortable and clean. Even had a fridge for my cheese I purchased.
I would definitely recommend the tour to friends (and have done already). Thanks for a great day.
