Hunter Valley wine tasting
Mar. 2020 • Couples
This tour was fancier than previous ones I have done, perfect for the occasion. Parents were over from the uk and the average age of the group was 40s so worked well. Wouldn’t suggest this one for younger people looking to party.
Main reason for this review is to mention John who was our driver, he was so pleasant, had a great sense of humour, was full of knowledge and he opened up lots during the day which was lovely! In the end we felt like friends. Thank you John, your a legend!

Excellent Driver
Feb. 2020 • Friends
Peter T was our driver. He made the 3 hour trip each way extremely enjoyable. He was very pleasant and extremely funny. He had all four of laughing so much, he got to know us and we got to know him. The bus driver can make or break a long ride. Peter T made our trip enjoyable. He was very knowledgeable of Sydney, we learned so much. Thanks AATKings for having such a great driver. We enjoyed the wine tour very much.

Great fun and excellent driver/guide
Dec. 2019
Overall my family had a great time during the tasting tour. John S is our driver/guide of the day. John is highly professional. He shared lots of interesting facts and insights through out the whole trip (even when driving around Sydney picking up others). In addition to wine tasting, we also had a quick tour of the winery at the Leogate Estate. Will definitely recommend this tour!

Best Wine Tasting Experience! Great driver-guide too!!!
Had a really great day tour to Hunter Valley today!!! Tasted a lot (i mean, a lotttt) of wine, which made me tipsy-happy. And that’s a good thing because it means the wines are really nice!

What made the tour excellent was our tour guide-driver-in-one (JOHN S), who was extra entertaining, humorous, very approachable, knowledgeable, and really made sure all passengers are comfortable. He was too conscious about the aircon temperature inside the bus given the extreme hot weather in Hunter at 40c. He also dropped each and every passenger very near our hotels to make sure we don’t need to walk very long with all the bottles purchased at the valley! He surely entertained and made friends with my 3yr old son! Extra points!

Hey, JOHN S., Salamat! My husband and I agree we give you more than 5 stars! (Hope you get to read this!) Great job!!! See you around! Happy New Year!

If only the wines were bigger
Dec. 2019
Good scenery on the way to the Hunter Valley and of course in the valley. Ian our driver and guide was friendly and informative. Wine tasted however was of lesser quality than I have expected. I do not mind paying extra to taste more expensive wines but this option was not available. If only the tour could take us to a winery in Hunter Valley that is as famous as Penfolds........

Informative & Fun
May 2019
This is a very nice tour. The drive is scenic and our driver was knowledgeable and had a great personality. She offered interesting tidbits about Australia and kept us engaged without becoming annoying with too much chatter. At Hunter Valley, the tour was properly brief because we wanted the tasting to begin. Once that happened, no one was disappointed. All in all, this made for a delightful day and the excursion was well worthwhile.

Overall good tour. Our driver gave us some history and fun facts on our way out to Hunter Valley and while we were there.
At the last place, we didn't know we had to pay for our wine tasting separately, and our driver/guide was surprised by that, too.

Hunter Valley Wine Tour with Lunch
Aug. 2019 • Couples
Great day and all around experience. Our driver was Tish(sp?). He was very informative and made sure we had a great time. We had four stops total, two wineries, resort to have lunch, and a cheese shop. All places were welcoming and had wine tastings except for the cheese shop but they did have good gelato. Overall highly recommend this experience.
