“You Deserve This”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Saturday 22 February, 2014 we enjoyed a half - day vineyard trip with Hunter Valley Classic Carriages. It was one of the most enjoyable tours we have ever had and Frank our driver was a fountain of information concerning the local area and its history. We toured at our leisure with Frank eager to recommend some vineyards we could visit, though the choices were left up to us.
We would thoroughly recommend Hunter Valley Classic Carriages to all our friends and family.

“The best day out in the Hunter”
Reviewed 19 July 2013

Our tour guide Helen and her motor Clancey made our stay in the Hunter. We went on the afternoon tour but I would have happily done the full day one. We were picked up from our accommodation and taken to a meeting place and the carriage. There were 6 of us in the carriage and Helen took us through beautiful country side and back tracks to 2 wineries and into Polkobin Village.

We first stopped at McGuigans vineyard where Helen took us inside and introduced us to the tasting gurus who took us through a full tasting. We bought the port which was absolutely outstanding.

Next was Kevin Sobel's wines; a beautiful little place with a country feel - you can only buy wines at the vineyard which made this extra special. The white port was something very rare nd a must try!

Helen was absolutely wonderful - knowledgable about the area and a very friendly lady. We were blessed with perfect fine and relatively warm winter weather and loved every minute. I think this is truly the best way to see the Hunter and is well-priced. I would thoroughly recommend doing the full day tour. Would be great for couples, friends or solo.
