This was a fun trip with a great guide who eagerly shared the history of Sydney and the Hunter Valley development with us. Great selection of different places to visit with time for a bit of shopping thrown in. We did this the day after we arrived so it was helpful to adjust to time change and kept us moving after a long flight from Canada.
