Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Craig was very punctual, knowledgeable and friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour. He showed us additional spots for future visits. Vehicle was spacious and well maintained. Itinerary was well paced , had more than enough time , good selection of different specialities and history at each vineyard/ cellar door.
It was a pleasure booking over email with Julie ! Will highly recommend HV Tours

The bus driver Bruce was amazing. He was polite, kind and funny as well as he couldnt do enough for us even going out to get some pkts of chips as some of us hadnt eaten before the tour. The wineries were boutique specalist there was only one winery that were not pleasant and rude. Bruce was so apologetic. Otherwise a good day was had by all. Love the cheese and chocolate at the end of the tour.

Thank you for your review. Bruce is a gem of a guide, there is no doubt. I am glad you enjoyed your day with him/us I am sorry about your experience at one of the wineries we visited and I have discussed this with the winery's management. Yes, it helps you have a good day out if you have eaten before you get on the tour bus. On a good note as you say we do leave the best for last with the cheese and chocolate shop visit. So much to see, taste and buy. Im do glad you enjoyed your day with us and I hope to see you again in the future Julie and HVT team

Julie planned a well-organized full-day wine tour. She picked my wife and I up from our hotel in the morning and we were joined by one other couple in the morning plus another 8 or so people in the afternoon. We went to 4-5 different vineyards + a spirit shop + lunch in the middle. Almost all the vineyards were great with welcoming, educating hosts. Highly recommend if you're not sure where to begin with your vineyard search and/or just want a relaxing day with everything planned out for you.

Comfortable bus and lovely driver. Wineries were slightly underwhelming. Felt like some were targeted to the wrong crowd (crass humour). Wish we had visited some of the bigger wineries (e.g., Tyrrell’s or Audrey Wilkinson). Meal was also disappointing - hoped for a meal at a boutique winery but instead went to Four Pines Brewery, which isn’t unique to Hunter Valley. We met some lovely people on the tour but wish that we had more definite list of wineries we were visiting, so we could make a more educated choice.

I'm very sorry to read that it sounds like you didnt have a great day with us, which is very sad to read. I am very sorry to read you felt underwhelmed on your tour. Maybe if you had booked a private tour with us and gone to the places you wanted, so you could have had the experience you wanted opposed to booking on our shared guided group tour suited to the general visitor, you may have been a bit happier with your day. Im always happy to chat with you and see if we can change your experience to a happy one. Thank you again for your review. Julie
