This was our first of two tours organised by Runaway Tours and was so easy to organise in the run up to us travelling en masse to Australia.
Our large family group were superbly looked after by Runaway Tours and collected from our location in Sydney early in the morning before a two hour drive out to Hunter Valley.
The guide, Glen was very knowledgable and welcoming and being an ex-pat from Essex, he led our group perfectly.
We visited two different vineyards in the morning and had great taster sessions at both, before stocking up with bottles to help us celebrate our time in Australia.
Following the second vineyard stop, Glen took us to a beautiful spa resort for our lunch which was of an exceptionally good standard. Following lunch we headed for a cheese tasting experience before visiting the third wine boutique. This was more of a wine stockist as opposed to a vineyard, but the quality of the wine was very good.
As the afternoon drew to an end, the final stop on the tour was a chocolate shop where we had the chance to purchase some high quality confectionery.
Following this visit we headed back into Sydney and was dropped off back at our lodgings at about 5:30 so it really was a full day of brilliant activities.
Thank you Steve and Mandy for their exceptional organisation skills to put this tour on for us and as you can read on our Blue Mountain tour review, they really do know how show off these great locations in and around Sydney.
When we return in the future, we will no doubt be heading to the Runaway Tours website to book more activities.
Thank you for making our holiday in Sydney so memorable.
