Owner description: Unique, private luxury full or 1/2 day tours. 2- 10 guests only. By limiting our tours to max 10 guests we have access to small family-owned wineries that have excellent wines but do not take bigger groups. Pickup from Hunter Valley only in luxury Mercedes Benz vehicles. My wife's ancestors planted some of the first vines in the Hunter Valley in 1853 and just never left. We have looked after visitors to our region since 1998. In 2008 we added some tours to our business to the delight of many guests. We offer 2 different full day tours, our very popular 'Progressive winemakers Lunch tour' and 2 half day tour to choose from. Or we can tailor a tour to suit your needs. Our aim is to show our guests great food, great wine and have loads of fun. Educational, yet light-hearted. Our tours are unique, over time, we have build up trust with local chefs and (boutique) winemakers, who all offer a personalised experience. Because we only have a small number of guests on our tours we can be flexible and tailor our tours to suit you. We can also assist with your accommodation needs if needed.
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities, Stairs / elevator, Wheelchair access

Easy, knowledgable and brilliant

Thanks Simon for your tour today. Your tour was excellent. You weren't too overbearing as a host and got the balance right with regards to leading us and letting us run free.

Lunch was excellent too!

Best way to see the hunter!

My mum and I visited the Hunter last week and did the 1/2 day gourmet tour and had a wonderful time. Our guide Nathan was so friendly and accommodating, firstly finding out the types of wines we like and then planning a tour of three wineries he thought would suit our tastes best! We loved all three wineries! My mum had a walking stick and Nathan looked after us ensuring we were comfortable at each stop and helping mum get in and out of the van. Would definitely recommend this company for anyone looking to have a fun adventure in the Hunter, off the beaten track! Thank you Two Fat Blokes!

Our group of four giggling girls had a ball on the progressive lunch tour last weekend. It was a pleasure dealing with Jan (thru email). Jan was always very quick to respond to my never ending list of questions. Roger was our tour director for the day (lucky Rog!). Roger was fantastic. He was very knowledgable, obliging, patient and friendly. We had four wonderful stops and got to try some delicious food and quality wine. This is the second year we have done this tour (with some different stops) and we will be back again next year. An absolute must do in the Hunter.

My husband and I booked a full day Hunter Gatherers Tour with Two Fat Blokes, and we couldn't have been happier with the day. Simon was our tour guide for the day and we thoroughly enjoyed his company. He is very friendly, easy going and knowledgeable about the area and the wineries. All of the wineries we visited were excellent, and we felt very welcome at each of them. Not to mention the fab wines, cheeses and chocolate! Lunch was great and included fresh Hunter Valley produce. We finished the day with a beer at Potters Brewery. We would love to go on another Two Fat Blokes tour again in future, and we definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a good wine tour in the Hunter Valley.
