Gary.. What a man! Just made the day such a good one. Lovely, down to earth, true aussie bloke! Couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. I highly recommend this company when going on tours of the hunter! Would do it again in a heart beat! Well worth the money!

“A good time...”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We had a good time on our tour with Sam. A good range of big and small wineries - though I certainly preferred the smaller boutique wineries that bookended the tour. We didn't realise we'd end up at the smelly cheese shop at the end of the tour - save your cheese buying till the end.

My girlfriends and I went on a half day wine tour on one of Vineyard Shuttle's Horse and Carriage's, Our lovely driver Frank was amazing, he let us sit right up the front and one of my girlfriends was lucky enough to drive for a while! They took us 'off the beaten track' and got to see some beautiful scenery trotting through the vines.
The vineyards we went to had a wonderful welcome to the company (the are obviously well respected in the valley) and also got to taste some local produce at the Olive Centre.
Thank you to Gary and Barb for the wonderful booking experience and our driver Frank, for an amazing day.

“Great Day Trip!”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

We booked on the half-day tour and were having so much fun that we stopped on for the full day as there was room on the mini-bus!

We had arrived in the Hunter Wine Valley late on Sunday evening and left a message for the tour company stating that we were only in the area for one full day the next day - we were very pleased when Gary phoned back within an hour to say that he would pick us up at 10 a.m. in front of the Hermitage Lodge where we were staying. The bus arrived promptly at 10 a.m. and we set off on the wine tour. Gary's great sense of humour and knowledge of the local area were fantastic and we had a great group on the bus which made the day even more enjoyable. We even saw some 'wild' kangaroos grazing.

First stop on our tour was the Audrey Wilkinson Vineyard - we all received a lesson on how to 'taste' the wines correctly and sampled about 8-10 wines. The tour consists of visiting 6 different vineyards and included a lunch stop (not included in the price but prices ok) - there was no pressure to buy the wines at each stop but the deals were pretty reasonable so we bought a few bottles :-) We also stopped at a chocolate shop too which was a bonus.

Definitely the best way to get the most out of visiting a selection of vineyards - no worries about driving and its a door-to-door service. Gary made the day for us - "cheers" x
