The small group makes the journey friendly and fun. Travel by luxury vehicle from Sydney to taste some of the best wine and cheese produced in the Hunter Valley. An early stop is made at the wildlife park so you can get plenty of pictures with the animals before the crowds arrive.
We had an amazing time! Don, our driver and guide, was personable, knowledgeable, and flexible. The animal park, where we were able to pet koala, python, croc, and kangaroos, was a treat and the two wineries were fantastic in their own ways. Lunch was delicious! I was pleasantly surprised how good the food was! By the end of the tour, we had bonded with our tour mates.
Great trip thru country side. Awesome lunch, excellent food. Best driver and bus on any of the trips we booked in AU. Very relaxing day trip.
Awesome winery tour. Our tour driver, Peter, was very knowledgeable and friendly. All of the wineries were terrific. Had a wonderful lunch as well. Great afternoon!
It's rather a long bus ride, but worth the trip if you enjoy wine at all. The small group size was perfect, and the wilderness preserve was great - we got to feed kangaroos that were hopping around us, pet a koala and a reptile, and also to see indigenous animals that were safely contained such as wombats, Tasmanian devils, dingoes, and a crocodile. All of the wines were outstanding, and the wineries choose wine varieties that are not readily available in the US. The gourmet lunch at one winery was definitely that. Very much recommend this tour!
Really enjoyed this tour. Great driver who was very knowledgeable. Very enjoyable day. Started off at a wildlife park which was just great and then on to the wineries and a great lunch. Bought some beautiful wine only to lose it at the border when we left Sydney. Very disappointing. Other than that really recommend this tour.
Loved it - Our guide was great. Feeding the Kangaroos on the way up was incredibly cool. The first winery was beautiful - our host was funny and extremely knowledgeable and the wine was great. The second winery was a bit more corporate meets Liberace with crystal chandeliers everywhere and a helipad - not my favorite - but the wine was good and we had a fun lunch there. Net net a great day that I would happily recommend. And the small group format is certainly the way to go.
Excellent tour with great guide and generous wine tastings. Well worth it.
Our tour guide, Scott, was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of great information about Hunter Valley and the wineries we were visiting, as well as information about Australia. The day was delightful!
This tour was a great tour for a couple of reasons. I now know I prefer small group tours, the guide was very pleasant to be with. The wineries we visited were hospitable and generous with their wine selections. Lunch was included. We ate at Leogate Winery and it was exceptional. Highly recommend!
