Go beyond the offerings of a typical wine tour and experience all the tantalizing tastes of the Hunter Valley. Nibble gourmet Belgian chocolate, sample top-shelf spirits at a distillery, and indulge in a rustic brewhouse lunch paired with craft beers. Of course there's plenty of time for wine, too, with cellar door tastings and lawn games at some of Australia's original vineyards.

Give it a miss - there's better things to do

One - late pickup Two - then drove around downtown Sydney for an hour looking for a couple that was too stupid to read their confirmation. Three - packed like sardines into a van. A/C was hit/miss, microphone didn't work well - and if you got on after the first pickup point, you had to sit separate from your partner. In addition - seat had a safety bar next to it - every time you hit a bump in the road, you rammed into it. Four - all three wineries concentrated on white wines - primarily Semillon. I wish we had known that before we booked it. The Semillon was watery and essentially tasteless. Five - lunch was at a golf club. If you have difficulties with stairs, this is not the tour for you - no lift. Six - lunch was pretty good Seven - The cheese factory stop was after lunch - no one really had any appetite for cheese by then. Eight - didn't feel like the guide had anything to tell us about the area. Kind of boring

Hi Alyson, Sorry to hear the tour didn't fully meet your expectations. Unfortunately sometimes passengers can be late or get lost on their way, so I understand your disappointment but we also have to do everything we can to avoid leaving customers behind. Thanks for bringing those issues to our attention: we will make sure the A/C and the microphone are working properly on all of our buses. If you would like to discuss the matter further, feel free to give us a call or send us an email, we're always happy to hear constructive feedback from our guests. Thank you again for sharing your review and we hope to see you again on another tour with us! Kind regards, Luis

Jeff was our guide, driver and zoo keeper. We had a great group of fellow wine tasters that quickly became friends. Jeff kept us somewhat in line. Good choice of wine, cheeses and chocolates. I highly recommend this tour.
A great day .

I enjoyed my time in The Hunter Valley .The driver was very friendly and helpful .Tge countryside is very beautiful and it was great to try the wineries .The lunch was delicious .Perhaps the cheese tasting could have been more extensive , just two types of cheese and $5.00 for a greater choice .Overall a great day .

The driver was funny, made our trip enjoyable and pass the travel time with much fun. The tour is both educational and relaxing. The Three Cellar Wines we visited are Instagram worthy and the lunch is awesome!

We definitely enjoyed this tour. If you're a fan of Shiraz you will enjoy your time. Take a tip and try the sparkling Moscato and put a twist of lime in it. It was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the vodka tasting. The owners allowed guests to try as many small samples of their flavored vodkas as you wished. We purchased a few bottles to take back to the US. While on this tour there is also an opportunity to try some local beers.
