“Great tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2011

Mum and I went on James's tour for the June long weekend and had a fantastic time. James had a lot of knowledge and the vineyards he took us too were amazing. Great day, perfect tour. Would recommend to anyone who wants a good day in the hunter seeing a variety of wineries.

“A group of us were on James's tour this...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2010

A group of us were on James's tour this weekend and we loved it! A lot of thought was put into the locations we went to and James was knowledgable and friendly. Our favourite was Ernest Hill, we liked it so much we went back again the next day on our way home. Definitely book this tour in the hunter.

“James is a very accommodating, knowledgeable tour guide, we would highly recommend his tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2010

We recently had the pleasure of being toured through the Hunter Valley vineyard and wine region by James' Hunter Valley Wine and Vineyard Tours. James was a gracious, entertaining, and extremely knowledgeable host. Even after arriving two hours late (make sure you turn left in Broke, we went straight.....), James was extraordinarily accommodating and patient with a family of neophytes. With James' incredible knowledge of the valley and its vineyards and his very personal relationships with the vineyard owners, James is uniquely qualified to provide and very memorable tour. We would highly recommend him!

“James' (Myles) Vinyard Tours was fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2010

Mom, dad, and 22 year old daughter toured with James in Sept. 2009 and had an outstanding day. James collected us from our lodging and soon the van was filled with 10 or 12 people. As we drove James discussed facts about Hunter Valley and some of the vineyards; his company base in Hunter Valley appeared to lend itself to history of the area. Each location was expecting our arrival and our group was hosted at each stop where the wines and vineyard were discussed at length. We visited two wineries, stopped for lunch, then visited a winery and oil vineyard, the smelly cheese shop, a chocolate shop and one last winery. Absolute favorite was Ernest Hills vineyard where Jacki thoroughly entertained everyone! Please know the lunch is not hosted. James delivered us to a location offering a large assortment of differing eating establishments and we had a fabulous time; our expectation however was to buy our own lunch so our expectation was exceeded because of the selection available. One of the most impressive sights was at the last stop, a vineyard. The party prior to us had departed and later the proprietor discovered they left a purchased case of wine behind. James collected the wine when we departed, contacted the other party, and delivered their purchase! At the end of the day James delivered us back to our lodging and left us with suggestions for dinner that night. What a fabulous memory from a fantastic trip. Highly recommend James at james@vineyardtours.com.au; www.vineyardtours.com.au.
