    We thoroughly enjoyed our Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tour. The guide Henry was excellent and good company too. It is good to get a guide who knows his history and he made everyone feel at ease.
    The Leogate winery was excellent and the food we had at lunch was the best we had in our 4 day visit to Sydney. I would have liked a bit more time at the last stop to enjoy the gardens and see more of the boutique shops but that would have been at the cost of the other stops which were so good. Can highly recommend this tour.

    Great tour. Easy day trip from Sydney to the wine country and a nice selection of stops to sample the wines and have a great lunch. The tour was well organized and run and the driver was knowledgeable and friendly to all.
