The whole experience with Tastes of the Hunter was fantastic. We all had such a great day. Suzanne was amazing and very quick and assuring with all of my communication. The real MVP of the day was our driver Kevin. Kevin made the day a lot of fun. He loves a joke and a chat. Very informative of the region and so, so helpful. Kevin knew all of the staff at each place we went to. I really couldn’t rate the day high enough. We will definitely be booking again.

20/10 recommend Tastes of the Hunter for a wine tour. Suzanne was such an amazing help with organising our tour and keeping us up to date with info. Suzanne was also super responsive to emails and prompt to return calls.
On the day, we had Kevin as our driver and I cannot fault him. He made the experience so much better and made sure we were having fun.
It is also very reasonably priced, and after contacting many companies it worked out to be the best.
I would happily return for a tour in the future.
Big thanks to everyone involved <3

Suzanne was easy to deal with from start to finish, she had our tour booked and ready to go well before our nominated date. Communication was prompt snd correct.
Ray our driver was a blast he really made us feel welcome, he even joined in with our silly jokes and stories.
Looked at a few other tours however this was a fantastic price for the 10 of us and so much fun.
We will definitely be booking with Tastes of the Hunter again. AAA+++

We were a group of 4 . We had a great time. The first winery Earnest Hill was the best. Nice wine and the young woman was knowledgeable and had a great presence. The next winery not so great James winery was too busy and too big. No presentation. Lunch was nice (we paid our own which we preferred) Gin place great. The chocolate and cheese was a non event. These two may need to be a bit more organised. Grant was fabulous and should be paid more 😀. The other people on the bus were fantastic and very friendly. A really fun day. Thanks!

Wonderful to hear you had a great day on the Hunter Valley Wine and Beer Adventure Tour. Grant is an amazing tour guide and he loves showing groups a fabulous time in the Hunter. Glad to hear you were able to try some nice wines at Ernest Hill wines and the spirits tasting. Sorry to hear James Estate happened to be particularly busy at the time you visited. The chocolate and cheese shop is a casual shop visit for purchasing as advertised as per the tour description. We have other tours available where you can include extensive cheese tastings or wine and cheese/wine and chocolate matchings. Most venues charge $30pp and upwards for these types of experiences and the Hunter Valley Wine and Beer Adventure Tour is an entry level tour where we try to keep the tour price as affordable as possible so we just include a casual stop for browsing/purchasing at the chocolate and cheese shops. Great to hear you enjoyed your time onboard as a whole.

This was a wonderful idea in celebrating my sisters Hens weekend. Suzanne was patient with my booking process and the ups and downs that have we have experienced in light of COVID. I can’t thank her enough for her patience and understanding with this.
Also John, our bus driver. We could not speak more highly of him and his professionalism. John continuously checked in to ensure our day was pleasant and ran smoothly. Making our day memorable, fun and made everyone feel welcome and at ease.
We can not speak more highly of John and Suzanne and encourage anyone visiting the Hunter to book with them.

Such a great experience from start to finish. Easy booking, great communication, and easy pick up. The wineries we visited were exceptional and I hadn’t visited them before which made them great finds. Suzanne was informative on the trip and bent over backwards to make sure we all had a great time. Will definitely go back.

I don’t know where to begin. From start to go Suz was so helpful and palmed the whole day for us from get home. This put me at ease and ensured the day tan smoothly. I can’t recommend her enough. Our fabulous driver Grant was so relaxed and easy going. He kept us girls in line for the day and ensured we were on time. He was so much fun!

Definitely will be booking them again for the future!

Strap yourselves in for wine, food and a show.

#welovegrant

Stand up comedians would be jealous of our driver. Timing, relevance and pure hilarity is Grant’s full time job and tour guiding is clearly his passion.

People-Person-Grant quickly cemented himself as one of us, his dry sense of humour gave way to laughs before he’d even let us on the bus. At 9.25am we knew we were in for a ripper day.

With Tastes Of The Hunter Wine Tours you can build your own adventure. Kudos to our party leader Abbie for picking such amazing venues. Grant offering tasteful snippets of information along the way, peppering the trip with his jokes that had us in stitches. Grant immediately became everyone’s best friend, personal assistant and cinematographer. We wanted for nothing!

Swiftly sorting the Bluetooth connection Grant had our tunes pumping. Surprise horn toots startled and delighted us and the passers by, plus we never had to open a door. Grant was always there.

As the tour was coming to an end, (the Hunter did not disappoint) at our request Grant drove at 5km per hour down our street, elongating the fun times, belting out Mumford and Sons alongside us as if we were in the band.

Thank you Grant. Make sure you request this guy when you book…it will be the wine tour you’ll never forget.
