Best Girls weekend half day tour!
We were a group of 7 ladies out for a fun girls weekend for the Hunter Valley Wine Festival and we booked the Half Day Snapshot Tour. It was really well organised from start to finish; reminder texts and emails leading up to the date, text to confirm pick up time on the day and of course who could forget our Awesome driver Brian! He was so informative, funny and we all loved his dad jokes! He really ... more took care of us from start to finish, and we enjoyed everywhere we went and tasted! Thank you for making our girls weekend so special! We all came back to the “Clown Plaza” in very good spirits.You can’t go wrong with this tour company! One of the best!

Sit back, unwind and appreciate a day of wine sampling in the beguiling boutique wineries on our Hunter Valley wine visits - customized every day for our little gathering of individual ... moreexplorers. Granted Best Visit in the Hunter Valley three years in succession.

In the Hunter Valley it truly must be about the incredibly famous wines of this present, Australia's most seasoned wine district. However, our fixation on the littler, boutique wineries in this dazzling zone breathes life into the wine-production process, as we appreciate private samplings with those for whom wine-production is an enthusiasm and also a lifestyle. Furthermore, our adaptable schedule implies that we don't visit similar wineries consistently. At noon and for the duration of the day there is additionally time to appreciate a portion of the other awesome nearby harvest.

Our local experienced tour guide will meet you at the Sydney Hotel. From here will leave the city, head North over the Sydney Harbour Bridge passing through the Gore Hill Freeway to ... moreconnect with the Pacific Highway and then the F3 freeway. Then head straight to the Hunter Valley, located on the lee side of the Great Dividing Range. During the journey will stop over for a short rest.

With 180 years old, Hunter Valley is rich in History and one of the earliest famous wine regions in Australia. It’s a vibrant and charming location that overflows with more than 150 top rated wineries, 65 exclusive restaurants, boutique breweries and gourmet produce. Our first stopover is at a 5-star winery situated in the Mount View region of the Hunter Valley, an area famous for its grapevines cultivation. Here you will have an opportunity to sample some excellent wines.

The tour continues to Leogate Estate. Its lavish cellar offers a perfect place to taste the unique award-winning wines which only Hunter Valley can produce. We will also delight in a collection of cheeses paired with wine, followed by a trip to the onsite winery to learn of the winemaking procedure.
Lunch will include a two-course meal with a selection of platters and a dessert of your choice. Wine will also be served, and other beverages can be bought at owner’s expense.

After the gourmet lunch experience, we continue to Keith Tulloch Winery. It is a small family owned winery that produces wines which exhibits the unique soil and climate of the Broken Back Range. Later will have a wine tasting experience and sample five handmade praline chocolates together with the chocolatier “Cocoa Nib”. Quite an extraordinary way to end the tour of the Hunter Valley Wine Region.

The tour ends as we return to the city of Sydney where we arrive at the hotel at around 5.30 pm.
