“This tour deserves a 6 out of 5 rating!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

This tour was a wonderful way to learn about the Hunter Valley and its wineries. Our tour guide, Mike, couldn't have been more pleasant or knowledgeable. We visited 5 lovely cellars in the area and made stops at a cheese and chocolate shop as well. We will certainly recommend this tour to our friends and family back home in Canada. Thank you Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tours (a big thank you to Mike specifically) for such a lovely experience!

“A Very Pleasant Day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

Took a tour of the Hunter with the guide, Mike, picking us up from our resort in the area. We went to four winery cellar doors; we also had a stop for lunch at the Bluetongue Brewery Café, and the cellar door adjacent to the brewery had a great selection of wines from smaller vinyards in the Hunter. Between the tastings our driver gave us some history about the Hunter and stories about wine making, which made for a very pleasant trip through the day. Many thanks to our driver Mike and Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tours!

“Couple from Cebu Impressed and Overjoyed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

We booked online at the last minute but we're glad we did. The tour group was small which is ideal as we didn't have to wait for a lot of people in between stops.

Our tour guide, named Mike, was very entertaining and narrated inside stories about some famous city landmarks, such info you wouldn't have come across on your own. And before we drove out of the city, he was considerate enough to stop by a coffee shop so we could take some refreshments (own expense) and have our toilet break. There was one instance he pulled over so we could take pictures of the wild kangaroos by the roadside - a nice bonus photo op. :)

The boutique wineries we went to and their wine selection were impressive. The whole experience was outstanding.
