Our tour guide, Ben, was friendly and knowledgeable. He brought us to three amazing wineries and then to see kangaroos at the end! Would highly recommend.

This tour was a lot of fun and Jim was a great guide. He kept us informed and entertained while on the road and even stopped to let us take photos when some wild kangaroos popped up alongside the road. It's tough to review the wine as that's so subjective but the wineries were in beautiful locations and the staff at each location were wonderful. The place we stopped for lunch was in a cute shopping center and the food was cafe-style sandwiches. The lunch was fine but if I went again I might try a different location like a few of our fellow tour mates did for something a little less basic. Ultimately I'm recommending this tour because of a great tour guide, the lovely wineries and stunning landscapes.

This tour was absolutely incredible. From the moment we were picked up, our expert guide Nigel hit us with the humour! He picked the finest stops that didn't disappoint one bit. I didn't know that he was an expert kangaroo locator, but wow, he found us quite the smattering of them throughout the vineyard. Honestly, Nigel really made the trip, never have I had a tour guide with such passion and personality. He went above and beyond in his service and I'm glad I was able to meet such a soul. I've lived in Sydney for just a few short months, and my new buddy Nigel gave me his number in case I need any suggestions or just want to get a cup of coffee with him if I'm ever up in the Blue Mountains. I will have to take him up on this offer for sure. My mates from America were lucky enough to experience this tour with me as well, and it was the highlight of their stay in Australia. Would recommend this tour to anyone that visits Australia, professional and world-class tour guide and location. Wine, cheese, beer, vodka, champagne, kangaroos, and chocolate. 10/10

This all-day adventure was one of the highlights of our honeymoon in Australia. Our guide/driver Jim was incredibly knowledgeable, not just about the wineries we visited and wines we sampled, but also about the geography and history of the regions through which we traveled. He really made the experience much more enjoyable, particularly on the drive out from Sydney almost 2 hours.

We visited four vineyards and tried and purchased a variety of different wines. Our group was about 9 people, including a mix of Australians and internationals.

My only advice to fellow travelers would be to bring snacks for the morning ride, and possibly a book or magazine to read on the way back if you get bored riding in cars.

Great trip to the Hunter Valley!
The tour guide Steve was great - really knowledgeable and funny. He made the trip!
Visited 3 excellent wineries and had plenty to taste in each one. Nice lunch stop off, with a chance to do another wine tasting.

For the price - the trip was great! Would recommend!

Despite the wet start which rather spoiled the scenery en route this was a superb day. The 'experts' at the vineyards were very informative and though you may think a vineyard is a vineyard no two were the same. The lunch provided was more than adequate and my husband's gluten free diet was readily catered for, advance notice having been given. It was good being in a small group too.
