Our tour guide Helen and her motor Clancey made our stay in the Hunter. We went on the afternoon tour but I would have happily done the full day one. We were picked up from our accommodation and taken to a meeting place and the carriage. There were 6 of us in the carriage and Helen took us through beautiful country side and back tracks to 2 wineries and into Polkobin Village.

We first stopped at McGuigans vineyard where Helen took us inside and introduced us to the tasting gurus who took us through a full tasting. We bought the port which was absolutely outstanding.

Next was Kevin Sobel's wines; a beautiful little place with a country feel - you can only buy wines at the vineyard which made this extra special. The white port was something very rare nd a must try!

Helen was absolutely wonderful - knowledgable about the area and a very friendly lady. We were blessed with perfect fine and relatively warm winter weather and loved every minute. I think this is truly the best way to see the Hunter and is well-priced. I would thoroughly recommend doing the full day tour. Would be great for couples, friends or solo.
