We went to the hunter valley for 2 days and did a full days tour with Hunter Valley Boutique Wine Tours and had the best time.

The wineries that we went to were picked by Brian and were absolutely outstanding and were ordered in a way that just seemed to work for the day so well. Our host Brian was so knowledgeable, not just about the wine, but about the hunter valley and the history of the countryside and so it made travelling between the wineries so much more interesting and worth while as Brian talked to us about what we were seeing as we were driven to each stop. We also went to an olive shop, a cheese shop and a chocolate shop which was so much fun and broke up the different wineries perfectly. Also included on the tour was a lunch which was certainly need after the large amounts of wine we had and was ideal as there was so much food!The bus itself was very nice and large and was well air conditioned for the hot day which made it an absolute pleasure.

We can't wait to go back to Hunter Valley and do another tour with Brian and recommend that anyone else heading that way book a tour through them as we know you will have such a great day like we did. Overall, an excellent tour. Thanks Brian for the excellent day!

Our personalised boutique tour certainly did impress! Our host; Brian was incredibly friendly and showcased an explicit knowledge of both wine and the surrounding area. Every winery we visited had something unique to offer matched with superior service. Without question, this was the highlight of our four-day getaway to the beautiful Hunter region. We have already ranted and raved about you to our friends and family and can't wait to come back again soon and do it all again! Thanks so much, Chris and Megan Beattie - Hervey Bay QLD.

We had the tour today with Brian. Absolutely worth the money! At first a thought it was way to much money. But you receive sooooooooo much!! You go to 4 winerys, a chocolate shop, a cheese shop, a olive shop, ... and see a beautiful landscape. Brian is awesome. He has a good band with the locals, so the locals are very friendly. The dinner was also good. A bit loudy but what a view you get outside. We tasted a lot of wines. We tasted also a lot of different, out of the box, combinations: like chocolate cake with red wine. Brian knows a lot about the activities itself. As a backpacker we have to double check our money, but this was truly amazing and Brians business deserves the good feedback. All by all the tour deserves to be the number one on tripadvisor!!

We had a super day out with Mark who was a very informative as well as sociable driver and guide. Tasted some great wines and a fabulous cafe lunch and it was very reasonable . Highly recommended.

Thanks very much Brian for a great day; we really liked the personal service and genuine interest you showed our group. Added to that we enjoyed a fantastic lunch and the side trips to the cheese and chocolate shops were a nice diversion from all the wine tasting and education. Will recommend your tour to all our friends! Cheers!
