What people are saying about Newcastle, Australia

2 fat blokes were awesome . If you get a chance to choose guides you should choose Bill. His knowledge of the area and his quirky anecdotes made our day. They will take you to the path less travelled and show you a great variety of vineyards. My wife and I Are in our 40s and we thoroughly enjoyed the day. I am not a wine drinker but are now converted . Thanks Bill and the team.

Fabulous tour, prompt pickup, COVID safe, 6 venues prepared for our group. Very informative guide JJ and venue host very knowledgeable. Excellent lunch box under the pepper trees at Tinklers winery. Final visit of the day to Foghorn brewery very good brews. Looking forward to coming back to the Hunter Valley.
