Featured guest review:
‘The whole trip was fantastic from start to finish. We selected this particular tour based on the exceptional reviews and we weren’t disappointed. The hosts at the three wineries that we visited, were welcoming and the wine selection was impressive. The highlight was actually eating the most amazing food that Jimmy prepared along the way for us to enjoy with our wines. I was so impressed with this tour. Thanks again for an exceptional experience in the Hunter Valley.’ Bron W

Wonderful day! Jimmy is a fabulous chef and he produces the most magical food in the most gorgeous locations. The wine tasting is fantastic too and having Jimmy as your driver, guide and chef is a real treat. Don’t hesitate to book this tour.

We enjoyed every minute of our tour even though it had been raining majority of the time. We got pick up from our hotel right on time. Our group was small and fun. Our guide and chef Jimmy was awesome. He was polite, informative, and detail orientated. Moreover, he also has a good sense of humour. The food he served matched very well with the wine we tasted. We highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I booked this tour to experience the wine country along with a few gourmet treats and it didn’t disappoint. From the pickup at our hotel to the detailed tour information along the way, it was great. It was a small and intimate group and the food and wine was amazing. It’s a must do if you are in Sydney.

This tour met all of our expectations, great food and wine!! The itinerary called for a stop at the fish market honestly we weren't expecting much, boy we were wrong!! Actually, the stop at the fish market was AWESOME!! This was the cleanest fish market ever with a wide array of fish, along with a glimpse of how fish is sold via auction to wholesalers. It appeared as though everyone in the market knew Jimmy (our driver and chef), which made us feel special!! While traveling to Hunter Valley and in between wineries, Jimmy was able to give us plenty of insight into the various areas and communities we passed through. As expected each meal was delicious and paired well with each wines!! I highly recommend this tour if you're looking for something different than your usual wine tasting tour.
