This is an awesome trip and worth every penny. We were picked up by our Aussie guide Steve in the morning at the agreed pick up, and then had a two hour trip up to the Hunter Valley (brief 15 min coffee stop in the middle). Steve was very knowledgable and taught us a lot about

Our guide Scotty was excellent -- friendly, talkative, and informative. I got the impression that he wasn't much of a wine lover himself; however, he listens to his past guests when he schedules his winery stops. We disliked our first stop, Iron Gate, because the wines were

Thanks for your review David. We hope that you enjoyed your day with us! Australia is a vast country, so it does take some time to get from A to B. This is why we try to ensure our guests receive valuable commentary on the journey to and from, so as to get maximum value from their day. We hope you learnt a thing or two about Australia and our beautiful wine country in the Hunter Valley. All the best, the Activity Tours team.
