Great day with Glenn!

We travelled with Glenn over the winter holidays. He was very knowledgeable, low key, and attuned to us and our family's needs.

Took a day trip from Sydney with my 75 year old mom and sisters. We stopped at view points and did a mid level hike through to see waterfalls and the 3 sisters peaks that we really enjoyed.

This was my 5th trip to the Hunter Valley and I will definitely choose Country Trails for all future group tours. We had out of town guests visiting and I could not have asked for a better experience. Working with Glenn was a pleasure. The coordination, planning and payment was easy. He picked wineries that were boutique and personal. I... More

Hi. Thanks for your review. It's great that you enjoyed the Hunter Valley tour so much, especially as you've already been there a number of times.

Another very enjoyable day out with Glenn who looked after us and took us to some lovely wineries. Having visited the Hunter Valley with Glenn previously, we were delighted when he agreed to take us from Manly to the Southern Highlands. We had a brilliant day with superb wines and delightful people.

After visiting the Hunter with Glenn last year, we asked if he'd be up for taking us to the Southern Highlands wine region this year. We had a brilliant day visiting some lovely wineries and tasting some delicious wines, meads and ciders. The region is cool climate, so offers some different wines to those in the Hunter. The highlights were... More

Hello. Thanks for your comments. The Southern Highlands is a nice region for a wine tour (plus other activities), especially for those who have already been to the Hunter Valley and want to try somewhere different. Hopefully see you again for another tour! Cheers. Glenn More

Since arriving in Sydney 3 years ago I have done several Hunter Valley trips and I can safely say this was the best by far. Glenn was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and very accomodating to our requests. He really went over and above from start to finish and made sure that everyone had an amazing day.
