As we are regular visitors to the Hunter Valley we decided to give this company a try. Pick up time was good, full van with lovely people- the wineries chosen were pretty mediocre taking very large amounts of talking rather than tasting and unfortunately James was not very positive about much during the day. We have done a number of... More

Such a fun first day visiting the Hunter. We were met by James' (lovely and accomodating) wife Adrienne who picked us up with a minivan full of equally eager, fun and intrepid prospective winies. We visited some beautiful boutique wineries, (I now know MUCH more about wine than I did this morning) and had a lovely relaxing lunch getting to... More

We had a lovely day exploring the Hunter thanks to James. He took us to 6 different vineyards as well as cheese and chocolate tasting which was very nice. He had lots of knowledge about the Hunter and went out of his way to ensure everyone on the tour had a great time. We definitely recommend touring with James!

We spent the day with James touring several vineyards, a cheese tasting, a couple of chocolate stops and a lovely lunch. James you are the epitome of an English gentleman, even though you've been here quite some time! It was fun, with lots of laughs and your local knowledge made it a very enjoyable day. We'll be back and we... More

This was my first visit to the Hunter valley and had been very much looking forward to it for some time! I was spending the weekend away with some girlfriends to celebrate various different occasions and we decided to do a private wine tour. I certainly was not disappointed! The car was large and spacious and also very clean and... More

I’ve seen a lot of reviews on here for James, which is lovely. We met James, and he is super! However to us, Adrienne is the star of this show!! I had a group of five attend the Hunter for a private tour on the weekend, and we ended up booking the best tour in the Hunter! (lucky us) Everything... More
