The coach driver was informative, lunch was lovely and the weather just made the day.
Love the Hunter Valley, probably not the best time to visit on Winter/early spring but the tour is still 100% enjoyable for my wife and myself.
Hunter Valley Tour was a blast, I loved the wine tasting and the pairings . The food they served with the wine was great. Well organized and the driver was very informative , an overnight stay in hunter Valley would be in my bucket list.
Great day, bus driver was very informative. Would definitely recommend.
Great trip, the driver was from a different tour company but he gave us alot of information about the area that we were passing through. The winerys didn't give as much information as on the Melbourne tour but it was great to see the country side.
Very nice trip to lovely country. Driver was very knowledgeable. Tasting at Lindeman's was pretty good, could have had more time after to wander about and check things out. Lunch was good.
Good day out with an excellent driver / guide (Darryl) who happened to be a Kiwi working in Australia. Very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and the wineries we went to. Lindemans was ok, McGuigans was excellent. Lunch at the Huinter Wine Centre was good although it would have been nice to see whether we could have included Tempus Two or the De Bortoli wineries as part of the trip as well. But a very good day on the whole.
Friendly and prompt coach service set the tone for this wonderful day which included three tastings and a great lunch. Good value.
A very good tour with plenty of wine to taste and beautiful scenery. The tour guide/driver was first class and gave an excellent commentary. The only very minor criticism might be the lunch. There really wasn't enough on the serving plates for the number of people around the table. Overall, a very good value.
it would be magnificent if we went there in Summer. But the tour guide was good.
This was an extraordinarily LONG trip for someone flying 31 hours only 2 days before! Scenery on the way there is very nice, but it just makes the trip too long! We were extremely disappointed that we didn't get to go to McWilliams Winery as we had met 1 of the grandsons at a wine tasting here in SC. Lindenmann's was nice, but the wines weren't very good. The lunch was ok, but it was difficult to get to the food as some cultures apparently haven't learned the courtesy to pass the food. We were so tired, we had no interest in even tasting the wines at Oakvale. For a wine lover, it was a bit of a disappointing trip.
It is certainly not Napa or Sonoma, but a good trip to see and appreciate the Australian countryside. For the record, we only went to 2 wineries - the summary says three. We don't count a place where one can buy wine as a winery. The Hunter Valley is far from Sydney, 2-2.5 hours, so bring something to read or listen to if you don't enjoy looking out the window for an extended amount of time. You must try the "Jungle Juice" at your first stop; it will be memorable. The lunch provided was extremely disappointing, which many in the group agreed on. Nevertheless, take this tour and enjoy the scenery, especially if you have never been on a tasting tour before. The basics of wine and wine tasting are introduced.
Interesting, but the size of the group was a minus.
