What a great experience....Jimmy, chef/owner is fantastic! Attended to every detail...food was amazing, wineries were wonderful, We'd give him 10 stars if we could....yes, it was that good!!!
Completely awesome!!! Would do it again!
Best tour on our Australia trip so far.
We really enjoyed the combination of food and wine. Jimmy was very knowledgeable about history, geography and wine.
The Hunter Valley was very picturesque and the vineyards we visited were a bit different from the large chains we have visited in the past.
I would definitely recommend.
Fabulous personalized tour
This was an amazing day, led by Chef/Owner Jimmy. He amused, entertained, taught and in all led a very satisfying day of food and wine in the Hunter Valley. We were a group of 12 enthusiastic travellers. Jimmy introduced us to various food techniques made with love from the back of his van/kitchen and pairings with appropriate wines. A highlight was a trip to the Sydney Fish Market. Hook up with Jimmy and you won't be disppointed.
Small group tour as advertised, very intimate environment ... really loved making sushi and tasting local boutique wines ... chef as guide was excellent approach ... all logistics as indicated on voucher.
Probably the best value and most enjoyable wine tour I have ever done. My husband is not particularly fond of Australian wine or interested cooking but he is still raving about this trip too. We did this trip on Wednesday and Jimmy our driver/chef and all round genie was a fabulous host, there was a small group of six of us spanning from only 20s to late 60s and we all had a great time. Jimmy took us to the fish market then stopped off enroute to cook us a fabulous breakfast overlooking a beautiful bay on the way up to the Hunter Valley. We stopped and sampled Fayre at a local deli and then went to three boutique winerys where we learnt about the wines and tasted their wares. Ever so often Jimmy would pop up with the latest gourmet treat that he had somehow managed to prepare in the middle of no where. The food, company and quality of the wines was faultless. Would I recommend this trip absolutely 3 family members have alread6 asked for details and when I am in Sydney next time, I would do the same trip again.
Jimmy if you read this review, tell your mum she was right - brilliant idea to combine a trip that is tailored to people who appreciate good food and wine in the same package. Dont change anything, the schedule and content of the trip is absolutely perfect. An absolute highlight of our first visit to Australia and certainly not our last. Regards Annie
its well worth getting up for the early start to this tour. Jimmie is guide - driver and chef all rolled into one - and he makes this a fabulous day out. Its small groups only - so its also fun. The visit to the fish market is great and Jimmie buys provisions for later. Onto a spot called Brooklyn on the Hawksbury River - so pretty! we are dropped off to do a short walk round a headland and arrive to find a table laid in a picnic area and the bbq going. Lovely breakfast of warm cheese and ham croissants -warm flatbreads with grilled mushrooms- cheese and rocket - pancakes- fresh fruit and fruit juice. After breakfast - jimmies icebreaker - we all learn how to make a sushi roll amid lots of laughing - these are put on ice for later in the day!! We stop for an olive oil tasting which was fun. We go to 3 lovely vineyards for tastings and much wine is bought! at the second vineyard we are served up in tapas style- cheese and biscuits and olives - asparagus with truffle oil and parmesan - chorizo - and a stuffed mushroom all cooked on a portable bbq that Jimmie carries with him! at our final stop we have our sushi - scallop with creamed mushroom - kangaroo sliders and a wattle seed creme brulee!! All 3 vineyards were great - but Jimmies food made the day and the wine! This was the best wine trip I have ever been on. Jimmie was a great guide and full of interesting information - the three smaller wine houses and their locations were amazing - and the food was superb!! this tour is a must!
Great Tour!...from making us breakfast on the grill that is attached to his bus, how cool!...lol... We visited 3 wineries , i know by far that we were his best guests thus far ...hahah we had fun!...
This was a great tour - Jimmy is not only a great chef but was able to tell us much about Australia as we drove along. The wineries were generous with their samples - good wines! The people on the tour with me were from various countries and I enjoyed meeting them. This tour was the highlight of my time - loved going to the fish market, our picnic breakfast along the Hawkesbury, our tastings with food to match. I would do this tour again. Connie from Canada
