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.
Great wines and the the driver was fantastic. highly recommend iron gate wines
Our guide for the day is Steve, and he made the tour even more amazing and fun than it would have been.
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.
The trip was great! We were in a small group and it was very nice. Good wines we had. The guide/driver even advised us about a winery near where we had lunch. It took us 3 mins to walk up to it and they had good light cabsav. :
Hunter Valley wines are something to write home about! When our driver came to pick up, he informed us that we were only ones on the bus and they still conducted the tour, however the bus driver was informed that two others would join us, a newly married couple in their late 40's. The three wineries served us about 8 different wines, at least 4 red and 4 whites sometimes more! I was glad I was not driving. Lunch was included, although no wine was served, we were able to bring our own bottle to enjoy and we did. The driver was informative, knowledgeable and very upbeat. He made the tour come alive. The cheeses were great. If you have the time go on this tour!! You will really enjoy it.
Friendly and knowledgable tour guide. Small group and exclusive. Highly recommended.
It was a very good day - visited 3 wineries, chocolate shop and smelly cheese factory. Tour guide was funny and informative and the group interacted well! A very enjoyable day and well worth the time to see the fantastic Hunter Valley
Tour was great! Had a good variety of wineries- would have been great if we could go to 1 more.
Our guide was amazing and really went out of the way to help everyone with pickup and drop off points which were more convenient. The tour included lunch which was great and we were even pointed to a cellar which gave us a huge range of tastings for free during free time. Would definitely recommend
Our small-group Hunter Valley Wine and Cheese tasting tour was a great experience. Steve, our driver and guide, really made the trip fun and interesting.
This trip is made possible with much pleasure because Mark our Tour Guide has provided us with most amazing explanation about Sydney and sensitive to our needs. He is amazing with great personalities. Mark is the one to engage as awesome Tour Guide. We gave him two Thumb and #39;s up. We strongly recommend
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
