We had a lovely day exploring the Hunter thanks to James. He took us to 6 different vineyards as well as cheese and chocolate tasting which was very nice. He had lots of knowledge about the Hunter and went out of his way to ensure everyone on the tour had a great time. We definitely recommend touring with James!

We spent the day with James touring several vineyards, a cheese tasting, a couple of chocolate stops and a lovely lunch. James you are the epitome of an English gentleman, even though you've been here quite some time! It was fun, with lots of laughs and your local knowledge made it a very enjoyable day. We'll be back and we... More

I was spending the weekend away with some girlfriends to celebrate various different occasions and we decided to do a private wine tour. I certainly was not disappointed! The car was large and spacious and also very clean and... More

I had a group of five attend the Hunter for a private tour on the weekend, and we ended up booking the best tour in the Hunter! (lucky us) Everything... More

This was a fantastic way to see the Hunter Valley. Our tour guide Adrienne was excellent and really made the tour enjoyable for my family and myself. We were taken to some amazing vineyards that we hadn't been to before and were able to spend as much time as we wished at each vineyard. We also stopped for both chocolate... More

James was so quick to reply to my initial email, really helpful in deciding an itinerary on the day, was on time to pick us up and super friendly. We booked a full day tour with James and he added some great insight into the history of the Hunter Valley and gave us extra bits of information during our tastings.... More
