The company organises one and two-day tours to the Hunter Valley, with three visits to Cellar doors each day. Three of us booked the two-day version with an overnight stay at the Hunter Valley Crown Plaza. We were dropped off at 1530 on Day 1, and collected the following day at 1030. Cost was 400 Oz dollars each for the trip and hotel B&B: not cheap.
We had a different guide on both days and both were excellent, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The three visits each day were excellently organised: Ernest Hill, McGuighan, Mountain View, Irongate, Tempus Two and Lambloch. Good tastings. And informal visits to Cheese and Chocolate shops.
On the other side:
-we asked for a local pickup which was not available so we had a ten minute walk, only to find that the bus passed our front door on the way out of Sydney
- the bus on the first day was poor with bad seats and missing seat belts
- being left at the Hotel for so long, without our own transport, was an issue although the hotel was excellent.
Overall, taking the total cost into account, we would recommend just the single day option.
