 “I cannot thank Suzanne enough for taking us on a tour …  From first contact to end she is professional and nothing is too much trouble. On the day she went above and beyond to ensure we have a day to remember. The coach is so gorgeous and comfortable. Suzanne also had a video music system to entertain us all. Thank you, thank you, so much for an experience and tour to remember! So if your looking for a tour that caters to your every need and you want outstanding customer service knowledge of the area then this one is for you. I’ll definitely be back soon thanks again”Megan Fraser

 “Suzanne was a delight to deal with and made endless suggestions which made organising  our tour of 15 people simple and pain-free.
She was bang on time to pick us up from our hotel, and the bus was exceptionally clean with great tunes to match.
We had a fantastic day and enjoyed every moment of the tour around the Hunter with Suzanne.  Many thanks for an amazing weekend. We’ll definitely  be back!

Private Tour? vs A Group Price?

Which option is right for you?

A private tour is best for our group because:

  • It is important to us to have a luxury 20 seat minibus exclusively for our group only (no other passengers) and we are willing to pay a little extra to secure it.
  • We want a custom itinerary where we can choose the cellar doors we visit and we don’t mind paying the extra tasting fees (most cellar doors in the Hunter Valley charge $5 per person) to visit specific cellar doors not already on your “Group Food and Wine Adventure Tour” (check it out here: Group Food And Wine Adventure Tour with Hunter Valley Pickup)
  • We would like to be picked up in Newcastle, The Central Coast or Sydney
  • We have 14 people or more in our group so it works out quite economical for us (we are happy to take groups of 10 or more people for private tours however the more guests you have the more economical it becomes)
Lunch At Harrigan's Irish Pub Pokolbin
Sabor Dessert Bar Pokolbin

A special price on the Group Food and Wine Adventure Tour is best for us because:

  • We still get the same luxury tour minibus (20 leather seats, DVD player with music hits from the 80s, 90s, 2000s and today, 8 speaker sound system, individual air conditioning controls, mini-fridge, apple and android charging ports at the front of the bus and complimentary chilled bottled water for guests)
  • We don’t mind keeping it social and saying a quick hello to others on the bus as we get a great price on a group tour (there are no daggy games to play on the bus with people we don’t know and we don’t have to sit with the main group at our lunch venue if we don’t want to as our lunch time is flexible) – besides everyone is a “new friend for the day” after the first cellar door!
  • We have 5 – 12 people in our party so price-wise this option works out better for us
  •  We would like to relax knowing that our itinerary is professionally organised by Suzanne – a Hunter Valley local – who has selected a variety of boutique and large cellar doors with private tastings for our group with our own cellar door specialist and we don’t have to worry about tasting fees or pre-paying in advance by credit card etc.
  • We love the idea of a flexible lunch where everyone can choose and pay on the day according to their tastes and budgets (or we can bring our own picnic) – with wholesome tasty pub/cafe style food for around $20 per main and options such as gourmet burgers/pizzas, tasty pot pies, pastas and salads for something lighter …. there is something to cater for everyone in our group
  • We are looking to be picked up in Pokolbin, Lovedale, Rothbury, Broke, Wollombi, Cessnock, Branxton or Maitland
