    Ben was an amazing guide and we loved the mix of wineries. All of the tasting hosts were exceptional and we were thoroughly impressed with the quality of all the wines. We’ll worth it.

    For some reason, our review of a wine tour from Napier has my review of the above tour.
    Hunter Valley tour, guide Glenn, great tour with flexibility, good wines and a great lunch. Highly recommended.

    Glen was a very professional guide for our day out to Hunter Valley. He provided pick up and drop off from our Bondi Beach location. We enjoyed all Glens suggested wineries and he was flexible once we arrived to our preferences. Most enjoyable day. Highly recommend Thanks Glen

    Our driver - Glenn was perfect. He allowed us to customize our tour based around our winery preferences. We decided to have a picnic in the Hunter Valley Gardens and Glenn was on hand with a picnic blanket for us to use. Water was readily available, we would highly recommend.

    This tour is perfect especially if you are travelling with kids. Glenn was very nice, considerate of the circumstances and what the whole group wants to do. He took us to the Ernest Hill winery - the group’s favorite! I’d book his tour again when I can in future.

    This was a brilliant trip. Our guide Glenn took us to four different but bespoke wineries in the Hunter Valley. We enjoyed each winery although our favourite was the last one we visited namely the Pepper Tree Winery. Glenn was extremely accommodating and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
