“I love showcasing the hidden gems of the Hunter Valley through memorable and personal tours that welcome those interested in wine to those who have never before been on a wine tour.

I only bring groups to cellar doors where I have personally tasted the wines, I personally choose to drink those wines myself (when I’m not driving the bus!) and can attest to the quality and personal service of the cellar door staff (each and every tour as I always accompany the group to every tasting).

It’s all about introducing the unique qualities of Hunter Valley wines and local produce in a fun, relaxed, friendly and welcoming environment – without the jargon of conoisseurs!” – Suzanne

Hunter Valley Tour FAQs:

Question: I’ve never been on a wine tour before. Is this tour right for me?

Answer: Yes! Almost every tour we have people onboard who are experiencing a wine tour for the first time.

One of the biggest reasons behind the cellar doors that I pick for tours is that the staff are of course passionate about their wines but they are able to communicate this passion in a warm and welcoming way without the “wine connoisseur jargon” that makes people feel uncomfortable.

Question: Do you offer Half Day tours?

Answer: We can offer Half Day (afternoon) tours on Sundays. Check out our Gourmet Explorer Tours page for options

Question: Do you accept last minute bookings?

Answer: Yes! Bookings close at midnight the night before a tour and are of course subject to availability. If a tour is booked out it will be ghosting grey in the “Check Available Tour Dates” box and you will be unable to select it. However it is a good idea to book your tour in advance in order to avoid disappointment especially if you are wanting to tour on a Saturday!

Question: Is lunch included in the tour price? And can I bring a picnic lunch?

Answer: We don’t include lunch in the tour price and yes you can bring your own picnic lunch if you wish. Our lunch venues are flexible enough to allow you to enjoy a picnic on the grass or on the outside picnic tables. We like to keep lunch flexible so everyone can purchase their own lunch according to their tastes and budgets on the day so you are not locked into a set lunch menu.

Question: Are we allowed to have fun and chat on the bus? Should we book a private tour?

Answer: Our wine tours are fun and relaxed so most groups like to chat, get a little excited and even sing along to their favourite song. You are not going to the library! 🙂

The advantage is I can give you a much better price than a private tour, it keeps it fun and social and we can often get access to sit down tastings (sometimes in our own private room) with a senior cellar door manager or even the owner of a boutique vineyard with a slightly larger group.

If you would prefer to book our 20 seat luxury tour bus exclusively for your group you can read about our Private Hunter Valley Tours here. These are the best value for groups of 14 people or more however our Group Wine and Beer Adventure Tour gives you a great price if your numbers are less than this and is a relaxed and social experience where you shouldn’t be afraid to have fun!
