Jimmy was an awesome guide and chef throughout our whole tour. The 7 course meal throughout the day was paired finely with all the wine tasting. The little extras throughout the day and the amazing service made the tour so fun and memorable !

My husband and I received a birthday voucher for this experience from our children, and it was certainly money well spent. Jimmy the owner from start to finish produced a magical day for us all, from an insight into the functionality of the fish markets and breakfast in Brooklyn, to preparing gourmet dishes to pair with the lovely wines at each winery visited in the Hunter Valley. We would certainly recommend this tour to everyone and hope to have the opportunity to experience it again in the near future.

The Hunter Valley Gourmet Food tour was sensational. Jimmy was the perfect host, tour guide and chef extraordinare. Starting off at the Fish Markets, then onto Brooklyn for a perfectly cooked breakfast, sushi making class in a beautiful location. His knowledge of the Hunter was amazing and the wine-paring with the food made it an experience to remember. A terrific day. 100% recommendation. Thanks again Jimmy. Louise and friends.

Jimmy was a very interactive and pleasant tour guide. He was attentive to when we wanted to move on to different places, well prepared and cooked amazing food. The stops on the trip were smaller wineries, so it was great to go there as we wouldn't have known about them otherwise. Jimmy provided hand santiser and made sure we followed COVID restrictions at every stop. Overall, the tour was a great experience and we would recommend it to anyone! - Dan and Antonia

We had an absolutely amazing time, sipping wine and enjoying perfectly paired food prepared by Jimmy! The trip was organised by our friend Steph who had already been on the tour before, so we knew it was going to be good, but oh dear, the day surpassed our expectations!! Jimmy was attentive, super chill and approachable, and an absolute legend! We are considering booking the Blue Mountains trip soon too! I don't normally leave reviews, but trust me, you won't regret a tour with Jimmy!
