We booked a Hunter Wine Valley tour in July and had a great time.

The journey was about 3 hours from Sydney (including a quick stop) but it was very scenic and nice to see another part of Australia.

Our driver Callum was very good and ensured we had a great day.

We visited quite a few vineyards and some were much better than others. The smaller boutique vineyards were much better than the larger companies, who seemed more intent on getting you to sign up to a yearly membership than the wine tasting. We would have preferred to spend more time in fewer vineyards.The Ernest Hill vineyard was our favourite.

Overall we had a great day out and would recommend the tour.

I enjoyed my day but a little disappointed in some of the small amount of wine tasted. Seemed very rushed
My favorite winery was Blueberry Hill winery -very small boutique winery with very good boutique wine with interesting blends. Very old historic vines.
I had the lunch option. It was marginal. No desert offered. Very I personnel. Food dropped in front of us never saw waitress again.
Cheese and chocolate tasting ok. Stingy with chocolate samples.

My husband and I had only a few days in Sydney and I really wanted to do a tour in the Hunter Valley to taste some good wine, chocolate and cheese. Our driver Jim, picked us from the Novatel Darling Harbour hotel...was on time. On pickup we ordered at lunch at 7am which saved so much time when we arrived at our destination for lunch. Our driver Jim must be congratulated on his customer service during the 12 hour trip. Well done Jim. Jim was very informative about the history of the hunter valley district. I would definitely recommend this tour for any single person or couple who like to taste good food and wine.
