We went to Hunter Valley with Jim on Sep 14 and it was a truly fabulous experience - Jim’s very friendly and enthusiastic, and his breadth of knowledge of the country and the wine region is so impressive! We had a really fun time on the caravan with his explanation along the way. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who’s planning on visiting Hunter Valley! The itinerary is very well planned - really chill time spent in the 3 independently run wineries and the cheese factory.

The best way to spend Saturday, especially when it is raining. All 3 wineries were amazing. Pairing with cheese and chocolate is surprisingly good. On top of it we had a great lunch....with wine again. Highly recommended trip.

I thought it was an English guide, but it was very helpful because he was fluent in Japanese. It was very nice to be able to tour more slowly than I thought. We also met a kangaroo. I would like to ask you again.

Excellent wines, self tasting experience enabled us to go at our own pace, great accompanying notes and every morsel was delicious. Highly recommended

Great variety of wineries and driver was fantastic made for a very enjoyable day
