A long but wonderful day. The 3 vineyards/wineries we visited were all very different and the wine also very different despite the close proximity to each other. Learnt a lot on this trip not only about the Hunter Valley and its wines but also the wine industry in Australia.
Excellent. We had a wonderful driver/guide who even took us on a dirt road near a winery at dusk to see
kangaroos in the wild. Exciting since we saw 2 males boxing each other plus at least 100 hopping around.
Much better than in a sanctuary. The wineries offered some good wines and all in all it was a great all day trip. Wine lovers will enjoy this trip for sure.
I had such a great time on this tour. It was absolutely wonderful and highly recommended.
Fantastic Day out!!!! Driver was very knowledgable and personable throughout the trip. The vineyards were brilliant and exceeded our expectations.
Stopped at 3 wineries for tastings and education. All presentations were very good. Tastings were extensive, at least 6 different wines at each stop. The lunch was at a Brew Pub and was family style Italian. It rivaled any fine restaurant in the area.
It was a great day and we fully enjoyed the trip to Hunter Valley.
The tour was long in terms of the bus ride there and back. Visited four wineries and the wine flowed freely. Lunch could have been much better---small café for 80 or so people. Should have just gone to lunch on our own. Bus driver was knowledgeable and had special things to share. Actually drove into a field so we could see kangaroos up-close in the wild. Good wine and great tour.
Had a great time! Guide was wonderful wineries where all good choices?
Really enjoyed this trip. The coach driver ( John ) was great- really looked after us and was very friendly. He really could not have done more to make my day so special. Great wine tasting especially at Draytons and Mc Guigans. Highly recommended
The all day tour was as described on the webpage and it was excellent. Our tour guide, Adam really made our day. He was knowledgeable, friendly stayed with us throughout the day although he did not join us for all the wine tastings we had. Our tour bus held about 26 people so we never had a problem getting off or on the coach and everyone got back on time.
We had 4 tastings and presentations plus lunch. At the McGuigan's Winery we had samples from 11 bottles but fortunately each sample was small.
All in all a cracking day out in the Hunter Valley.
Great day out. Our driver/guide, Mina, was knowledgeable and good fun.
Everything worked well. The wine tasting was excellent with no pressure to buy. A recommended tour for adults with a plentiful supply of booze.
Excellent day out. We visited four wineries, each in lovely locations and beautifully maintained and presented. Interesting and informative talks and descriptions at each tasting session, and lots of LOVELY samples to try. Really nice lunch, and even more wines to try. Could have happily done the same trip the next day again (and the next, and next, and next etc.) if my liver would have let me. It really does not matter whether you are a wine expert, a keen learner or a novice, this is a day out to enjoy.
I loved this, too. So much wine!. We got to taste a lot of wine. The minimum was 2 at the place we ate lunch. We typically tasted about 8 wines at each stop. The wines themselves were very good and not sold outside the US. I would recommend this trip, too. It's a good way to get to the valley without having to drive yourself. Important if you're from a country that drives on the opposite side of the road. I would recommend this trip for wine lovers.
The tour was great. Cameron our guide was great. He did a great job. How come lindemens wine are so expensive there. They only cost 7.00 in the us
An excellent tour. Everything was perfect.Would recommend this tour.
The wine tasting was good and with a lot of good wine, will recommend to all my friends.
the hunter valley tour we were on was excellent and really value for money. the guide and driver, Paul was a chatty chap and had a great knowledge of the city's history and geographical features. highly recommended!
We had a small group (about a dozen people) so we fit nicely into a mini-van. Our driver pointed out interesting sites and landmarks on the drive to and from the Hunter Valley and on the way back we even saw a 'mob' of kangaroos out in a field. The wineries themselves were excellent; my husband and I both enjoyed the wonderful variety of reds and whites, especially the shiraz and shiraz blends. Lunch was fine and included a glass of red and white with the meal. Very enjoyable trip and no complaints at all.
This was a wonderful day in the Hunter Valley and worth the price of the tour. I highly recommend it. It included hotel pick up and drop off which makes transport easy. We went to 5 different vineyards throughout the day tasting wines. The third stop is where we ate lunch. The food was yummy and I gobbled it all down. They pour you about 4 sips of wine but you taste about 10 different types of wine so by lunch I was really enjoying myself and the food did absorb the alcohol. It was a fun day.One of the places had a cheese shop so I got some cheese and water crackers and brought them to the hotel with me to have a snack through the rest of my stay in Sydney. I wish I had gotten more cheese so that I would have had some to take with me on the plane for the long trip home.
