Awesome trip!

Our lovely tour guide is Ronnie. He made our trip light, fun and he was equipped with knowledge about Hunter Valley. He drives safely and always check up on us if we are doing alright during the trip. We tasted 20 wine, chocy and biccy alongside! Slice of heaven on earth! Since the behind the scene was closed for viewing, he took us to the distillery and chocolate shops instead. We tasted organic gin and vodka on test tube, it was very interesting! We tried chocolates too to finish off our day. On this tour, I learned and and gained experience a lot about wine, cheese, chocy and vodka. I highly recommend this trip to solo travellers like me, for couple or groups. It suits anyone :)

Very enjoyable day out

I am a Sydney person just wanting to have a day out in the Hunter. I enjoyed it immensely. Cheeks, our driver was great fun - a very laid back, cruisey day out - no airs and graces. We left Sydney CBD approx 0720 and arrived around 1030. The De Iuliis Winery was great - we were hosted by Shaun and everyone enjoyed the location and the wine. I loved their Shiraz and their Semillon was outstanding. I bought 4 bottles and will order more online. The pub-style lunch at Hunter Valley Resort was good followed directly by wine/cheese pairing in the same location and that was really enjoyable (thanks Elloise - very interesting!). Then on to Glandore Estate Winery for wine/chocolate pairing - again, wine, chocs and location were all very enjoyable - lovely to sit outside on huge verandah doing the tasting (thanks Geoff). Then on to Hunter Distillery for gin/schnapps tastings. Loved the lychee and the passionfruit liqueurs. Back to Gordon train station approx 1900 where I took train home. It is not a 5 star experience - may not suit people who are looking for that and you would pay a lot more - but if you like cheeky banter, pub lunch, good fun - it is def for you. I felt like I had 2 days away in 1 day out. Thanks Cheeks!!
