excellent tour, visited some very good wineries . got told some very interesting facts about wine and how it is made, also tasted some great wines!!!, met some interesting people on this tour. if you like wine you will like this tour, also driver / guide was very friendly
It was a wet old day as we left Sydney, but that didn't dampen any spirits. Steve the tour guide was great. A real pro.
We visited four vineyards, tasted loads of wines, learnt masses about the wineries and the wine making process and all got delivered back to Sydney in time for tea.
The tour is awesome!! Tour guide is really enjoyable and will definitely join viator again!
Loved the tour and the wine was pretty amazing, too. Although it was a bit rainy and cold throughout the trip I still really enjoyed it. And Nigel, the tour guide, was pretty funny. Also enjoyed seeing Kangaroos in the wild at one of the wineries.
Our driver was very knowledgeable and witty. Thoroughly enjoyable trip . Especially liked the IronGate Winery !
What a wonderful, wonderful tour!
Our tour guide Mark was lovely, funny and knowledgeable in one. He took us to three excellent wineries (each one was so different and yet I found something I loved in each one). We also quickly visited a cheese factory and had lunch at the Hunter Valley Gardens. :)
this review is actually quite funny as when we were getting ready to go our driver Nigel (who i fell in love with explain later) i thought the poor guy was gonna go into cardiac arrest he was so stressed. so at first i was like well lets just drink anyway, and not bother with him, however he turned around 100% within the first 20 min of driving and was so funny....he took us around and we had a great day at the last winery we even danced on the terrace together. so Nigel if you read this, loved yourr swing music, and our brief terrace dance!!! One thing i did not enjoy was the second winery (will not name names) they were very pushy and all they cared about was the sale, they rushed us through the entire presentation and we werent allowed to look around, it was rotten .....but its all made up at the last winery with those ladies great wonderful women!!!!!!
Great day tour. It was my first wine tasting. It was a nice size small group which made it a more personal experience.The tour guide Steve was a hoot! Funny and very knowledgeable about the region and the wineries. He also remembered everyone's name on the bus, which was amazing since we were like the united nations from all different countries and languages. We had a great time, made new friends and brought home wonderful memories and a few bottles of wine!
Driver Mark was a very good host too and made us all feel at ease with social introductions and personal backgrounds. The wineries were interesting and tasting hosts friendly and entertaining. We had a good day.
a first rate experience the driver very experienced and informative
enjoyed the whole experience
A good trip, took in a lot - didn't feel too rushed most of the time, but might have preferred slightly longer for lunch and to come back a bit later. Wineries good although only 1 cheese "tasting". Still, a great way to get out of Sydney to see the Hunter Valley (part of it anyway!) in a day.
this experience was grately enhanced by it being a small group tour, learned a lot about wine although some of the cellar door prices are quite expensive
Trip was a little disappointing. Driver Nigel was a character but I didn't feel enough information was given. Cheese tasting was a joke. On two occasion when available we were given tiny amounts of soft cheese on sticks.
Wine tasting was excellent though.
