Our tour guide (Col) was friendly, accommodating and organised. It felt like a good friend was showing us around. He even rearranged our day a bit so we could fit in an extra location. The company clearly has a good relationship with every venue we visited, and that made every stop a pleasant and welcoming one. I would definitely recommend this tour to a friend.

Had another great experience with Dave’s Tours. We have used this company before for a Hunter Valley wine tour and had a fantastic experience and decided to rebook. We were taken to some past visited favourites and some new great spots. One of the highlights was the extra surprise stop at Small Mouth Vodka where we had tons of options to taste. Our favourite wines were at Deilluis and Oakvale, and the service from all including our tour driver is always top notch. Everyone always very happy to take photos and very patient while we browse, taste and wander. Thanks again for a great tour!

2 friends and I booked this tour on a Friday, and it was just us so even though it was a public tour, it was basically private. We had Sam as our driver and tour guide, and he picked us up from our residence even though we we're supposed to meet at a cafe in Newcastle. Sam was an amazing bloke, was very chill and informative, definitely gave us relaxing yet fun vibes. We even went to a bonus distillery because we had time. Every place we went to was not disappointing and extremely memorable. The people you meet along the tour really make the day, just amazing, incredible, passionate people of their craft. Although quite expensive, can't say that it wasn't worth it. The only thing that could make the tour better if there was more cheese/chocolate or something to snack on, accompanied to all the wineries/breweries we visited, but that's a pretty big ask. To the company reading this, give Sam from Dave's brewery tour company a raise.
