Thanks for your review of our Hunter Valley day tour! We're glad to hear you had a great day out experiencing what this part of Australia has to offer. Unfortunately at this time of year when there are lots of holidaymakers on the roads, it can cause some delays. We hope you enjoyed getting out of the city though and experiencing some of the wine and local produce the Hunter region has to offer. All the best for your 2020, the Activity Tours team.
