We went to 3 wineries and one distillery. These entrepreneurs were great hosts and very knowledgeable about the area history, climate and economy. We thoroughly enjoyed the new owners of Lucy's run. We even got pictures of kangaroo under the olive trees. Wonderful family owned winery. We wish them the best. Our lunch was awesome at Leo Gate Estate. But they didn't really talk much about the wine production but maybe we were too busy enjoying the food. Our bus driver was a hoot ... mister laid back. Are there still hippies?
The wine tasting tour was excellent and well worth the money! Our tour guide Daniel was enthusiastic and made the trip even more enjoyable. All wine tasting locations as well as the distillery tasting were well done. I would recommend this tour to anyone!
Wonderful and relaxing day trip to Hunter Valley! We got to enjoy some tasty wines at three different wineries, one of which also gave us samples of really good cheeses, try different vodka flavors at the distillery, sample chocolate and a piece of fudge, and enjoy a scrumptious lunch while taking in the beautiful landscape. We really enjoyed the smaller group tour because it allowed us more time to spend at each place without feeling overly rushed. Our tour guide Sebastian was awesome! He was very informative, engaging, and genuinely seemed to enjoy spending the day with us. It is a bit of a drive from Sydney to Hunter Valley a bit over 2 hours, but Sebastian kept us entertained the whole way and he had a great playlist for us to enjoy.
Had an amazing time. John our tour guide and driver was very friendly and informative. We had the 3 course meal. However it was a bit of a rush as the people that were having the one or two course meal finished way before we did and we still have to wait for the 3rd course. The wine was soso to be honest but it was a nice tour anyway.
This was a very enjoyable tour, Hunter Valley should not be missed, we visited 3 wineries, a vodka distillery, a chocolate tasting location, and enjoyed cheese samples at one winery, we enjoyed a superb steak with potatoes, salad and a glass of wine along with wine tasting at one of the wineries plus for the best part our driver and tour guide Flinders Stokes was the very Best you could ask for, he was very informative, knowledgeable and uniquely skilled to make your day a memorable one, enjoy your day, we will definitely return.
We were looking for a smaller more intimate group trip and this was great! Sebastian was our guide and he was entertaining and kept the whole group involved and having a good time. Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to visit the Hunter Valley.
Great trip in spring!
Awesome tour company. Dan, our driver and guide for the day, was very friendly and helpful. He made all of us feel right at ease and took care of us as we stopped at each wine tasting. He was even kind enough to drop off something we forgot on the van on his day off! Great guide, great company.
