The day was an absolute awesome day with the other 4 people we had on the tour with us, but the driver Tom, I would never recommend again, he wasn’’t very sociable, drive like a lunatic reaching speeds of 104 km/h in 80 km/h zones and was very pushy with what we had to do. In fact if I knew I was going to have him as a driver again, I would consider cancelling the trip.

The first winery gave great behind the scenes information and tour. It was perfect to do that first so you can go on to enjoy the wine relaxing and getting to know the group. It flowed really well and was a lot of fun. Cheeks was a great guide through the day

Amazing Day spent in the Hunter Valley . 2 out of the 3 Wineries provided an amazing Wine & Chocolate Tasing Experience . Lunch at the third was faultless and Mark our driver was very friendly and accomodating. The setting and location is absolutely stunning. For the Gin & Vodka lovers - a visit to a very new boutique outlet. My only criticism would be there was no cheese tasting ( Maybe due to COVID ? ) No Schnapps tasting and the second winery the wines tasted diluted . But all in all a lovely , fun day .
