This was fabulous! Would highly recommend this tour. I was traveling solo and felt very safe and included in the tour. Sid was my tour guide and was fabulous!Reviewed by: Debra H, June 2013
We enjoyed getting out of Sydney and seeing some of the beautiful Australian countryside. There was a good mix of wineries, and a very nice lunch on this tour.Reviewed by: Thomas M K, April 2013
The bus driver was very entertaining and the ride smooth. The wineries chosen were great. The tastings well done. The weather was just gorgeous and the mountains smelled sooooo fragrant. The lunch was delicious and there was plenty of food and a good selection. There was also tea or coffee at the end of the meal. Had a great day.Reviewed by: bernadette b, June 2013
Very enjoyable tour with a small group. Sufficient time at each winery. Generous tastings. No push to sell although wines are available. Excellent tour guide. I recommend this tour.Reviewed by: Raesa K, April 2013
The hunter valley wine tour really had nothing in it that we liked. First, it was a long journey up and we stopped in Wombly as a rest stop (small town nothing to see or do) for almost an hour due to some passengers not returning to the bus on time. Then when we got to the wineries it was very rushed. Not to mention at the first winery we had 20 minute video without even drinking. There were only 3 tastings and portions were very small. The bus driver was VERY late getting back to the bus when he should have been there about 4pm to head back to Sydney and when he did get there the bus was so hot for the first 30 minutes – very uncomfortable. We had planned a trip to the open outdoor opera and during drop-offs we politely asked the driver the order of drop-offs so we could understand if it was best to get off the first stop and take a taxi or if we were one of the first stops. We ended up getting off at one of the first stops because he wouldn’t tell us the order of drop-off and when we got out of the taxi we saw the tour bus dropping off other passengers to the hotel! Very frustrating and wasted vacation day!Reviewed by: Tara L, May 2013
