This Hunter Valley Wine Tour was catered to a small group and offered many different wine pairings with cheese and chocolates. We also stopped at a distillery and tasted a variety of liquors. Our guide was friendly, but there were some topics where you could tell he was not as knowledgeable in. Also please note that quite a bit of time is spent on transport to and from the region. Overall it was a fun experience and I would recommend it to anyone who has never been to the Hunter Valley region before. Be sure to bring sunscreen and possibly snacks if you get hungry (we stop at a gas station on the way to and back from Hunter Valley so you can get sustenance at that time as well).

Tour was amazing! With a variety of stops and an awesome tour guide like Dave (Greg) the tour was perfect! Would 100% do it again. Only thing is maybe would’ve brought water for the bus ride. Other then that the service at each stop, as well as with Greg having cooler etc for our wine & goods it was great!!

Had such a great day! We had 3 wine tastings and also enjoyed some gin, vodka and liquor tastings which was fun. My favourites we’re definitely the cheese and chocolate pairings Everything was organised perfectly and well guided by Todd our driver. I would 100% recommend this tour if you’re visiting Sydney, even if you don’t really love wine, like me. The Hunter valley is beautiful and the cheese and chocolate pairings were definitely a game changer. We even bought some wines to take home and have a go at pairing ourselves!
