I want to thank you for a great tour yesterday. Ian did an excellent job of guiding us around the Hunter Valley and 4 great wineries. This is the second time I have travelled with your Tour Company and the second time I have had a great experience. You smaller personal tours beat a giant bus tour hands down!

Rick Dau   

This is a quick note to comment upon our tour guide, Jenny, who led us on our winery tour in the Hunter Valley.  She was professional throughout the day, entertaining, and accommodating in every way. The gourmet lunch was excellent.  We would recommend your company to our friends based on our experience with Jenny.
