We all had a great time on the half day tour, visiting 3 wineries and driving around the beautiful hunter valley. The tour was very informative with a good selection of wines to taste, but the highlight was the cheese and wine pairing at the Two Fat Blokes cafe. The cheeses were all delicious and went so well with the wines chosen. Our guide talked us through them all and was interesting and funny, without any of the pretentiousness you find on some wine tastings. I highly recommend and would definitely do it again as you can request to see different wineries if you have been on it before. With 155 wineries to visit we still have a few to try. Thanks Two Fat Blokes for a great day.

This will be the fourth tour we have done with Two Fat Blokes and as always we enjoyed it, except for one complaint. To have a cheese tasting with 9 wines at 10am I feel is over the top. It feels that they are doing this to stretch out the first stop so as to then only offer two more stops. For the cost, less cheese and another visit. By the end of the first stop at Two Fat Blokes it diminished the qualities of the other two wineries

I cannot recommend Julie enough. She was very informative and accommodating to our group. We thoroughly enjoyed the wineries we were taken to and would highly recommend booking through two fat blokes. Thanks again to Julie for being an awesome host!

Every aspect our our wine tour was wonderful. Comminication on pick up time, punctuality, local knowledge, clean bus and extensive wine and cheese knowledge. The 3 vineyards were all very different and our tastings weren’t rushed or pushing for sales. Just perfect. We couldn’t have been more delighted. Highly recommend this tour. Thankyou 2 Fat Blokes tours.

Would highly recommend doing this tour. John was our tour guide/driver was excellent, great knowledge of the region, wines and cheeses.
Highlight of the tour was the wine tasting with matching cheeses at their winery, great atmosphere too.
We then headed off to "Bimbadgen", impressive winery, however, the wine tasting didn't have the ambience of the Two Fat Blokes winery. Staff at Bimbadgen weren't that interested in serving us (we were the only tasting table at the time), spent most of their time talking to one another behind the bar. Would suggest choosing a different winery next time.
Thankfully the last winery was "The Parched Crow", a breath of fresh air, wines were lovely and our host was brilliant, a nice way to end the day watching the sunset over the vines.
Again, highly recommend doing this tour.

Great experience, had a lot of fun visiting the 3 different wineries. Two Fat Blokes was by far the best winery in terms of their knowledge of wine blends and choices of cheeses to compliment the wines.
Only reason it wasn’t given 5 stars was because the tour was running nearly an hour late. We were rushed at each winery and told by the driver to ‘hurry up’, which put a dampener on the experience. We were told by the company to be ready for pick up at 9:30am for courtesy reasons and we stood waiting for the tour bus until 10:20am. We barely had time to make purchases or take photos at the wineries because we were constantly being told ‘we have to go’.
Other than that, it was a good first experience of the Hunter and would definitely recommend.

We booked this tour off of multiple recommendations - and boy do we see why. We had, hands down the best experience with two fat blokes on their half day snapshot tour. We headed off at 2pm not knowing what to expect, only to have one of the most memorable days ever. We pet some beautiful dogs,  drank (a LOT) of beautiful wine, filled up on cheese, and had the absolute pleasure of meeting the friendliest and funniest tour group of all time (shoutout to jodie, shane-o, anna and daniel).

Julie our driver was the best guide we could have asked for, after a little mix up that left our food at the two fat blokes restaurant Julie went back to two fat blokes just to grab our dinner and drop it off back to our hotel despite that making her late for her own dinner plans, this was the kindest and most above and beyond service we have ever experienced.

The only bad part was the tour ending :(

Amazing, knowledgeable tour guide (Andy) was incredibly patient, friendly and took us to 3 boutique wineries; Hungerford hill, Hunters dream and 2 fat blokes winery for my best friend’s birthday. Standout wines included the Semillon, Shiraz and Moscato. At our final stop, 2 fat blokes we had an incredibly paired cheese tasting where the birthday girl got some extra attention which she really appreciated (extra cheese plate, froze and a free jam)+a birthday song. Cheese standouts included the Labne, Feta cheese and Brie. Andy even gave us extra time (tour was supposed to finish 5 but 5:25 we were still at the last winery) so gave us an extra extended, amazing experience! Perfect amount of different wineries and settings too- will come back without a doubt. Thank you Andy and co!

Had a half day tour with Bill, our tour guide who was friendly, knowledgeable and quite humorous.

The wineries we visited were lovely, the hosts/hostesses welcoming and and the wines we tasted were varied. The cheese and wine paring section of the trip was really informative and "yummy". Needless to say several bottles of wine and a selection of cheese were purchased.

This is the second time we have travelled with "Two Fat Blokes" and would not hesitate to do so again.

We can recommend this company to anyone that wants to go wine tasting in the Hunter Valley.

Best guide, yeah Lisa, and other guests were great company. Informative and enlightening. Wine and cheese pairings was an excellent choice of start and the evident passion of the other wineries was enlightening. Good wines and cellar doors. Would recommend to all going to the Polkolbin wine areas luv luv lived it
