    Wine tasting tours are always on my list as I travel and this did not disappoint. With a pleasant ride to the countryside, a delicious lunch at McGuigan Wines and several tastings, I came back with two wonderful wines to share with family. You have the chance to sample well over a dozen wines as well as the shared history of the winery. It's always a great way to meet new people and share a moment that brings strangers together from all over the world.

    The driver/guide is really interesting and very helpfull. Thanks to him.

    I did not enjoy the wineries we visited, I was expecting to go to wineries I am familiar with , as there are many world famous wines , we were taken to only 2 wine tastings, not 3 like the advertisement said. Lunch included one glass of wine and this was counted as a tasting? IT IS NOT , finally they took us to the last winery , which turned out to be a strip mall where we wasted 40 minutes before heading back to Sydney, I do not recommend this tour

    Overall, a really good tour option. It was a long ride from Kings Cross to Hunter Valley (made worse because of traffic caused by a truck fire), so having a good driver is important. Jason was the best! Intelligent, funny, and patient, Jason made the trip for us. We loved both of the wineries visited - especially Leogate! Shout out to Vanessa! Lunch at Hunter Valley Resort wasn’t the best. Overall, I’d highly recommend the tour.

    This tour was all that was promised! The 2+ hour trip to the Hunter Valley went quickly as Peter T., our tour guide, pointed out points of interest along the way. Peter was professional, friendly, and had a great sense of humor. The flow and timing of the tour worked well with just enough time spent at each stop. There's a great cheese shop at the last winery - an added bonus. The lunch was excellent, too! We'd definitely recommend this tour to others!

    Our tour was fantastic right from the go with our hilarious coach driver, Stewart. He picked us right on time and then we proceeded through the city of Sydney to the Hunter Valley with a continuous commentary that gave us insights to the life, history and future of the areas we traversed. At the Hunter Valley we visited the three wineries, each gave us a good insight to their operations, tastings and a good send off with wines and wine related goods. The trip back was through the country to the city with commentary where needed and time to sleep. The on-board WIFI was much appreciated. Well done, and highly recommended!!

    Tour was great and very relaxing . We stopped at 3 wineries and had lunch at Hunter Valley Resort which was delicious. Best of all was our driver/guide Peter who made the whole day very pleasant. Would highly recommend.

    It was a great overall trip. We enjoyed the wineries and tastings. The lunch was a little strange - strange as in there were several family style dishes brought out that were different ethnic foods Italian, Asian, etc so it didn't quite match up. Overall though the trip was great!

    Excellent tour...3 wineries visited tasting over 30 wines which was fab!
