My partner and I were on a tour with Terry over the Easter Long Weekend. Terry had organised 5 wineries for us to visit with bookings at all of them, and a visit to the chocolate and cheese shop with samples each. Very well organised and informative. Would recommend.

Joined a tour that turned out to be more an extended family group shopping trip. Two under fives and a grandma along for the day out and two other in that group not really interested in or tasting the wine. Three of the wineries were good, but we seemed to spend a lot of time in the mini bus between... More

Hi David, Thank you for your comments. Your tour was on Good Friday and the family were finding it very difficult to secure a tour. Consequently we made the decision to take them but it is very unusual to thave children on a wine tour for obvious reasons. We did offer to take them home earlier, in another vehicle, but... More

As we are regular visitors to the Hunter Valley we decided to give this company a try. Pick up time was good, full van with lovely people- the wineries chosen were pretty mediocre taking very large amounts of talking rather than tasting and unfortunately James was not very positive about much during the day. We have done a number of... More

Such a fun first day visiting the Hunter. We were met by James' (lovely and accomodating) wife Adrienne who picked us up with a minivan full of equally eager, fun and intrepid prospective winies.
