Quite a long day and a fair way from Sydney but all very enjoyable. Our driver and guide, Chris, was very friendly and told us much about the wine area and it’s history.
This tour is great value for money and a really fun day out. It's even better if you get a good group of people
Great tour, Gaz was our driver/guide who was just great, funny and had a great way of giving us some historical background and making it all as lot of fun. The wineries were great as was lunch. We really enjoyed our trip out.
Wonderful tour from start to finish. Great guide - informative, engaging and funny. The wine and drinks experts at every venue were friendly and knowledgeable. Would completely recommend the tour for anyone interested in wine, or keen to learn.
Chris was our guide for the day and he was awesome. We had a glitch with the bus air conditioning so we delayed a bit but still did everything on the tour. It was very hot, over 100 degrees Fahrenheit but he took great care of us. All the wineries were fantastic. Would do this tour again definitely.
Despite the recent fire tragedies in Australia, we had a good time on this tour. There were some great wines and very friendly and knowledgeable hosts at the wineries. The tour guide was fun and easy to get on with. Really appreciated the extra effort to stop and have us see some kangaroos.
This trip was great in every sense, except that when did it, the temperature was roughly 40 Celsius or 110 farenheit. Despite the heat, we drank lots of wine, nibbles away on a tiny sample of chocolates, and tasted some pretty good vodkas. Do not ask to try the spicy one, you may regret it haha. You will love the wines so much, that it will be difficult not to buy any to take with you.
What a tour! Fantastic tour guide Daniel was accommodating, friendly and fun. The valley was beautiful (although smokey!) The cheese and wine was delicious and not as over priced as we imagined! This is a fab day!
To start our guide Gaz was excellent he got everyone involved and made the tour exceptional. We met many wonderful people and had a great time even got a chance to see kangaroos in the wild.
Highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for a wine tour in the Hunter. The tour guide was amazing.
Gaz was a great guide on our Hunter Valley wine tour. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and fun. Plus, he knew where some outstanding wineries were located. We could have asked for a better day
Sam, our tour leader made the trip most enjoyable. Also the lunch was very good.it is worth to go and see a different area out of Sidney.
The trip to the Hunter Valley was the final experience of our holiday . The driver was a very enjoyable, knowledgeable .helpful person and made the day most entertaining. The places visited excellent.
and the interaction encouraged between those participating made the day very entertaining with people from around the world.
This is new wine tour. The wine tour go to 3 wine tour, one of the wine tour taste the wine with cheese. The fourth tour is vodka. It taste different kind of vodka. This is a excellent tour.
We had a great time on this tour! Ronnie was our guide and he made it a fun experience from the beginning. We went to three different wine tastings, one with cheeses, and all three were really excellent. We tried some really delicious and different wines throughout the day. The lunch was at a neat brewpub type place. The vodka distillery was fun-my husband tried the spiciest vodka they make...it was great fun. The chocolate distillery has a lot of options to satisfy any sweet tooth. We even had time to look for kangaroos in the area! All in all a great day!
Our driver was “Cheeks”! He was friendly, knowledgeable about the area, he gave us great bits of info and we had a great time! The wineries and distillery were very educational and delicious (you won’t get drunk though, lol), and “KRIKEY”, we saw a ton of wild kangaroos! If you do this tour and Cheeks is your driver, you won’t be disappointed!
An excellent day outside of Sydney. Our guide was Sam who took us to several vineyards for wine tastings and explained things as we went along. Perfect end of the day==spotting a family of wild kangaroos in the field adjacent to our last country winery. Such a perfect experience in every way.
I enjoyed this tour a lot. Went with my mom and boyfriend, they both liked it as well! Really worth it!
This was truly a experience that I throughly enjoyed. What made the tour amazing was Billy Ryan and the beautiful vineyards. This tour included lunch, wine tasting along with local cheeses. The fellowship and and small group connection was pleasant and very friendly. I highly recommend the wine tasting tour.
Worth every penny! Got to taste some pretty good wines, try delicious balsamic vinegar and olive oil, see SO MANY kangaroos, eat delicious cheese and lunch and ending with the distillery and fudge factory was the bees knees! Ask questions, enjoy every sip, and love the Hunter :)
Excellent tour! Very good driver/guide. Great wineries to visit. At the first one the tastings were very small: you'd think they would be more generous in an attempt to sell their wine. The second one was the opposite: generous tastings with cheese and crackers plus a very delicious large portion lunch. A unique vodka distillery with many flavor infusions. Then a good chocolate tasting, and finally generous tastings at another winery: I'm glad I'm not driving!
Had a really enjoyable and relaxing time. Interesting and unusual wines were part of the new experiences. Love that this tour had the whole package. Wines, Cheese, Vodkas/Liqueurs, Chocolate, everything we wanted in our day. The tour guide and driver Ronnie was funny, informative, and friendly. A definite must for any visitor to Sydney!
Must do tour ! Excellent day trip to North Sydney. We were fortunate to have Daniel as our driver and tour guide . He was amazing. He stopped along the way when we saw Kangaroos for a photo op. There are lots of stops along the way for washrooms and snacks. The wineries were informative. People are very friendly. We had lunch at the Hunter Valley resort . We were able to pick from a list of meal choices. You only get one glass of wine, so any other choices like beer, spirits or more wine, you have to pay. Thats was ok since by that time we had enough to drink already . I expected more from the chocolate tasting place other than a sliver of chocolate . It was just a retail chocolate place with ice cream to purchase.. I give this tour 100... Thank you Zephr Tours and Daniel .
Good Day out
