“Fabulous wine tour”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Our wine tour with Jan was fantastic. She has enormous knowledge of the area, of the wineries, and the individual wines offered by each winery.

Jan fully customised the tour for the eight people on board. After picking everyone up from their accommodation exactly on time, she asked us all if we had specific wineries we would like to visit, and the wine styles and grape varieties we wished to taste. Then she created a tour that fitted in with the desires of all the passengers.

On the way to each winery Jan discussed the history of the vineyard and described the wines we would taste. Her knowledge was expert and comprehensive.

At every stop we had exactly the right amount of time to taste, enjoy, evaluate, and buy wine. We never felt rushed, and never had to wait around. If we bought wine at a vineyard, Jan carefully stored our purchases in the back of the bus.

I 100% recommend Mudgee Wine and Country Tours to anyone visiting Mudgee who is interested in wine and wants a great day out.

Hello Gionni

Thank you for taking the time to write a comment on your tour. It was a great day everyone got on so well and the time flew by. Glad you enjoyed my company for the day and showing you my lovely town and valley. Hope it isn't too long before I see you again. Jan

“A great day out touring Mudgee Vineyards - thanks Terry!”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

We booked in with the Mudgee Wine and Country Tours last Friday and had a fantastic day out!

Up front Jan advised us it would be better to go on the Friday if possible, as the markets were on Saturday which would be worth visiting, plus Saturdays tended to be very busy meaning you could cram less Vineyards in - so we booked Friday and it proved to be great advice!

Terry picked us up at our hotel bang on time, and we set of on our day long trip. Terry has been doing this for 14 years and definitely knows his stuff about the local area, as well as being very friendly and pleasant. He also has quite a few funny anecdotes from his years taking wine tours around, which added to the entertainment value in between Vineyards!

Terry had advised all the Vineyards we were coming so they were all expecting us, so we got the most out of the day, visiting five vineyards in all. We stopped off at the Orient for lunch which was great pub food and really helped line the stomach for the afternoon's wine tasting!

There were six of us on our tour so we each got plenty of time to taste different wines and chat to the friendly folks at the cellar doors, so we were really glad we'd gone on a Friday rather than a Saturdy which by all accounts are way more hectic!

We had a really fun day out and came home with way too much wine, so I think we can safely consider the day to be a complete success! All in all a great day out, we would definitely book with Jan and Terry on our next visit, and recommend the full day tour and go through the week if possible!

Thank you Mudgee Wine and Country Tours!

“A Fabulous Day!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We had a fabulous day in Mudgee!
Jan was our private tour guide for the day, with an incredible amount of knowledge about the area, wines and people, she made the whole experience wonderful.
Service was fantastic and Jan is great company! Having a private tour meant we could stay for as long or as little as we wanted and being with Jan you get a little bit of VIP treatment too.
The tour was in a 4wd vehicle, 5 seater ute with cab (to carry all the wine). Very comfortable and clean vehicle. Jan was also very obliging to take photos of us too :)
I would definitely recommend Jan to anyone visiting Mudgee.

“A Great Introduction To Mudgee”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

I was part of a group of 11 friends who booked a private wine tasting tour with Mudgee Wine and Country Tours on the long weekend. Our guide, Jan, was great at fitting in the wineries we wanted to see as well as recommending additional stops to meet our request for a day experiencing the local food and wines of the region. We had such a fantastic day! Jan was warm and friendly and has a great knowledge of the local wineries as well as the area in general. We even got discounts at some places. If you've got the numbers, a private tour is the way to go. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and I can highly recommend Mudgee Wine and Country Tours. Hope to see you again in the future Jan!

So glad you enjoyed your tour with me. I'm only one but of your Mudgee stay, there was so much on in Mudgee over the June Long Weekend hope you had plenty to do and see.

Hope it isn't too long before I see you on another tour and take you to more wonderful wineries in Mudgee. The Private Tours are great fun for friends to catch up and enjoy the day together.

Cheers Jan

“Great Mudgee Re-Visit”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

Having previously lived in Mudgee my wife and I took six Newcastle freind's for visit to this beautiful town and its surrounds. We did two afternoon wine tours, one with Jan and one with Terry. We had an absolute ball and both of our hosts made sure we fitted in with others who were on the all day tour.
Jan and Terry displayed good knowledge of the numerous wineries we visited which they passed on to us whilst displaying their own sense of humour. Terry does however need help with his jokes so if you know any please pass them on to him.
On these tours you not only get to taste (and inevitably buy) great wine but also see some beautiful countryside.
Don't miss Mudgee and while you are there make sure you do a wine tour with Jan or Terry.

Hi Graeme,

Thank you for the comments on trip advisor. I was so glad we did your tour, great to catch up with you, your wife and friends and show new people our lovely town / valley. Yes I need people to tell Terry some new jokes. Hope it isn't too long before we see you again. Jan
