Thank you for your review Neelan. Dave is just the best, he takes the extra time to ensure you, our guest has a great time with us. We aim to structure our tours to give a good overview of the many different styles of wines available in the Hunter Valley vineyards. Thank you, Julie

Nice day, but could have been so much better

The guide ‘Chris’ was very good and very knowledgeable about the history of the Hunter Valley region and the local wineries. The wine maker at the first winery we visited ‘The Hunter Wine Lab’ was brilliantly entertaining and obviously passionate about his wines and he loved talking about his passion - which was great! The experience at the second winery was good (without being great) as was the quality of the wine. The third tasting of wine, which is where we also had a very average lunch, was again okay, The host was reasonably knowledgeable about their products, but he was quite robotic in his delivery and little unenthusiastic….. and that was basically where the wine tasting ended. There was a tasting of spirits that followed as well as a chocolate and cheese tasting, which is fine, but I paid good money to taste wine, and I was disappointed that there wasn’t more wineries. I’ve been on many wine tours and have never tasted so little wine.

Thank you for your review Kleinieruth. We structure our tours to provide seven stops over several hours with three to four wineries tastings. I believe you visited three wineries and one cellar door for tastings on your tour, receiving an average of 30 wine samples plus craft beers. I am extremely sorry this was not enough to sample for you. Most people who have toured with us have provided feedback this has been a lot to taste. As a tour provider we are unfortuantely not able to manage people that are not employed or managed by us at Hunter Valley Tours but we do hope at every venue we take our tours to, the staff there are having a great day and on top of their game but at times there may be external reasons people may not be at their best on the day. Upon checking in with the venue in question this seems to have been the circumstances on the day. From both myself and the venue we sincerely apologise. Hunter Valley Tours aims to provide a quality and value for money tour service and I believe this is what myself, our guides including Chris provide. I am sincerely sorry you felt you didn't get enough winery visits and wine to drink over the several hours. If we dont include a cheese and chocolate or a distillery visit to our day tours, to have more winery visits would this be less disappointing? Please, I would like if you would like to discuss this further with me directly. I am happy to offer you a different route for your full day wine tasting tour and at a reduced price. I pride myself in providing everyone a 5 star tour service and am sincerely sorry that you felt this wasn't what you received. I wait to discuss your review with you further. Regards Julie

Fantastic and personalized full wine Tour

Memorable full-day wine tour. Our group was personalized with a lovely couple in time-frame as scheduled. Also, Julie, our tour guide, was a fantastic person, she gave us in-depth information beforehand. We loved most of our wine tour. My partner and I love a single bit and everything about the tour.

Thank you Josephine. It was my pleasure to be a part of your experience in the Hunter vineyards. It gives me great pleasure to be a part of your experience and memories of the Hunter Valley. I look forward to meeting you again in the future. Take Care, Julie

Value for money - lunch included

Julie our driver was friendly, engaging, accommodating and answered enquires promptly. Julie also was generous in offering to take personal pics for the customers on the tour. We were picked up at our accomodation in Cessnock and dropped back at the end of the tour. The bus was comfortable and water was on offer during the day. We totally loved the venues included on this tour - Oakvale , James Estate, Hunter Dreams, Pokolin Estate Winery, The Garden Cellars and Hunter Valley Olive Co! Lunch was wonderful with so many options to choose from. Options included BLT, steak sandwich, salt n pepper squid, rump steak, pumpkin and feta salad, smashed avocado, crispy skin salmon and others options. This tour was total value for money. I can highly recommend this wine tour.

Thank you Kylie, your review is very much appreciated. Being able to be part of your adventure in exploring the Hunter Valley wine region of Pokolbin was my pleasure. I like to plan our days just as I would like to experience a day in the vineyards myself. We sampled boutique wines from a variety of different wine making styles and flavours along with sampling some of the many small businesses that support the wine industry here in the Hunter. I am so glad you enjoyed our tour and I sincerely hope to see you again in the future. Thank you Julie
