We started from CBD. The driver cum guide was awesome. We loved his commentary. He shared all the information in advance before we reach the Wineries. It was a quite comfortable tour. We covered 3 Wineries and 1 Cheese and Chocolate testing area. Lunch was awesome. Before leaving the Hunter Valley, our guide surprisingly brought us to the Kangaroo lookout place. Highly recommend this tour.

Jason was terrific. Just the right combination of wine related information to make the experience meaningful and a dry wit to make the conversation fun.

We really enjoyed the tour and bating Jim. It was excellent. All three wineries were really good. We bought 4 bottles of wine and cheese. Thank you Jim for a really good time from two Tennessee hicks.

Had time in Sydney to finally take a wine tour in Hunter Valley! We live close to the Napa Valley and wanted an opportunity to try some Australian Wines. It was a great tour! Booked online. Very concise instructions on where to meet and the bus arrived on time. Knowledgeable guide. 3 wineries on the tour and we were very pleased with the with all of them. Great wines with super nice people at the wineries. I highly recommend this perfect day!

My husband and I had a great day with Peter. He was right on time to pick up and even dropped us back off near our hotel. He gave lots of great recommendations on the drive up and picked out three wonderful wineries to explore. He even found a few Kangaroos for us to photograph :)

Our tour guide Scott was very well informed and related a lot of great information about Sydney and Australia in general. I enjoyed hearing his stories of wildlife experiences. We highly recommend this tour.

The wine component of the trip was great; however, the tour guide knew little about wine and was candid about his lack of knowledge. The cheese tasting was hardly a cheese tasting. We went to a shop where we were told to not have too many people in the group go in at the same time. It was cheese that any person could trial, similar to going to a whole foods and trying cheese before you buy it. This is how it was for the chocolate tasting, too. The lunch was good and the other tourists were great.

First, let me say our driver and guide was really cool. The problem started with the fact he is not a wine drinker. That started off the tour on the wrong foot because he doesn't have the nos for wines. The other issue is that the wineries, with the exception of the last one, lacked that stunning view of Hunter Valley. The second winery was just an industrial wine making facility. As a tourists, you are expecting these post card views of wine country coupled with amazing wines paired with wonderful food and chocolates. This tour lacked that. Lunch was basic burger and fries, or some other Australian fare. I was expecting someone like I experienced in Italy: commanding views of the hillside, a 3 course meal paired with wines and a tour of the actual winery. This tour is just average.

I sadly became unwell during my trip to Sydney and called up to cancel the trip but unfortunately wan't able to. They offered me a new date but as I was only in Sydney for 4 days I couldn't take them up on this.
