Jim was a great tour guide who kept us entertained throughout the trip. The selection of a large commercial winery, smaller winery, and a boutique winery was great for experiencing what is on offer at the Hunter Valley. Although the cheese tasting wasn't as elaborate as the wine tasting, I still ended up buying some of the cheese that was sampled. Lunch was provided which was a nice surprise.
We really enjoyed our wine and cheese tasting tour with Nigel. He made it a great experience, answered all our questions, and a good view of life in NSW and the areas we passed through and the wineries we visited, and we met some really nice people on our tour. Going on a small group tour lets you meet other people but also you get a more personalized tour. Enjoyed all the wineries, and the cheese. Great day. Learned things about wine and wine making I didn't know and we got to drink some really good wine.
Wonderful day out, with a very knowledgeable and fun driver thanks Jim! Tasted some wonderful wines and took some home too. Comfy ride, good company, fine wines and some tasty morsels all helped make the day.
Steve, the guide, was great! The wines were interesting too because some of them are quite rare, eg chambourcin, and/or aren and #39;t sold outside the wineries. This is definitely one tour I and #39;ll consider signing up for again and again!
Brilliant tour - Nigel really made it for us - so knowledgable , accommodating and with a terrific sense of humour
What a great Tour. The Small Group size was perfect and our guide was personable, knowledgable, and informative on many subjects including the history of Hunter Valley Vineyards and Wines. He also provided wonderful scenic commentary during the 2 hour drive from Sydney to Hunter Valley which made the time fly by and well spent.
Very good. The driver, Jim, was funny, personable and full of information
It was excellent, our tour guide Sarsha Sherriff was amazing both in friendliness and in knowledge. I was very impressed with how our tour was handled, we didn't feel any pressure on time constraints, it was so relaxing and enjoyable.
The tour was fantastic! The best part was Sasha our tour guide. She was wonderful, knowledgeable and entertaining. The wineries selected were very nice and lunch was terrific! Very nice tour van and great that there were only 10 of us. I highly recommend this tour. Cheers, Lisa and Elisabeth
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.
The tour was amazing and our driver keith is very informative and helpful..we will definitely recommend to friends and relatives
Could have more cheese tasting only one stop three tastes from diff. jars. Ride wss a little bumpey. Enjoyed the country side.

I have highly recommended the tour, because once we actually did it, it was an amazing tour of the Hunter Valley and 3 of its boutique wineries, and the free lunch venue offered the opportunity of a little bit of shopping in small bespoke outlets. I would however, also recommend that the pick up details are made very clear to the company as we were left behind on our first attempt at this trip as they had us down as being picked up from another hotel. We did manage to reschedule our itinerary to fit in the trip a week later.
Had a fantastic day, tour was great, driver was extremely friendly and had a lot of knowledge about the wineries and the region. The day of our tour they had a lot of people delayed and there ended up only being 4 of us on it, they still took us which was great as they possibly would have run at a loss for the day. I totally recommend this tour.
I really loved Hunter Valley Wine Tour. We had beautiful weather; I adored the boutique wineries we visited, each stop was very different and educational. Also Mark our driver was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and friendly, which made the entire tour that much more enjoyable!
I cannot praise this trip highly enough. Our guide Rae was brilliant, not only was she highly informative and professional, she was also great company and really good fun. The wine tasting at three separate winerys was exceptionally well organised, lunch was lovely and we were well looked after. I just wish I still had it all to look forward to again. They even managed to lay on a group of wild Kangaroos. Our group age range was 21 - 77 and we all had a great day. Well done Viator especially Rae.
Very enjoyable day, Mark the tour guide and driver was extremely informative, friendly, and efficient. The wineries visited were all different, and interesting in their wine philosophies. Our companions were from various countries: U.K., Austria, Scotland, NZ (us), and even a couple from Queensland. A very worthwhile day out.
excellent tour, visited some very good wineries . got told some very interesting facts about wine and how it is made, also tasted some great wines!!!, met some interesting people on this tour. if you like wine you will like this tour, also driver / guide was very friendly
