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
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.
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.
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 wine tasting was good and with a lot of good wine, will recommend to all my friends.
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.
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!
Fabulous tour guides, wealth of knowledge. Beautiful wines and experience overall. Must absolutely do.
The driver was great. My husband had an injury not tour related and he was great he called the hotel and made sure we got back to our room safely. he is a great asset to your company. We give him 5 stars. .
We had a wonderful time. The wineries we visited were lovely and had beautiful atmospheres . We enjoyed all the wine tastings, and the fabulous yummy lunch. Also the beer tastings. We meet very nice people on our tour and enjoyed seeing the local scenery on the way to and from wineries. It was a Fun day.
Wonderful day. Great driver who was very knowledgeable and included everyone. The wineries were great to visit with awesome tastings.

Really good day - lovely journey out there, vineyards really good with wide deflection of wines to try. Enjoyed McGuigans the most. Sadly can't buy the best white wine in the world in the UK.
Excellent tour! 11 hours in total but well worth it. So much wine to sample and so much information given with each taste. Each winery was better than the last! Our bus driver was great, gave great information on the way to the Hunter Valley and toned it down when we were all so tired on the way back.
