The Sydney Private Tour Guide

Private Hunter Valley Wine Tour

'Hand picked wine, local cheese and an olive or two...'

Exhilarate your senses on this fascinating private tour of Hunter Valley wine and produce.

 

Just over a two hour drive north west of Sydney, 'the Hunter' is steeped by rolling vineyards and olive groves behind a backdrop of craggy mountains. 

On this fun day we emphasise visiting 'off the beaten path' smaller boutique wineries that hand pick fruit from their own estate. We will take a scenic detour from the main motorway and explore the quieter areas of the Hunter.

 

Depending on the season we can stroll amongst their vineyards, and pick and taste grapes straight from the vine. Sample scrumptious olives infused with herbs, garlic and/ or chilli and local cheese, matching it to wine of course. And treat yourself to pairing local hand made chocolate to wine - a mind blowing sensation. 


Your personalised tour may include the following highlights:

  • sample the Hunter's 'world famous' semillion, chardonnay, verdelho, riesling, cabernet sauvignon and shiraz, plus multiple other varieties at three or four wineries (time depending)

  • match wine to a plate of local cheese and olives 

  • lunch, with glass of wine (of course)

  • cheese olive tastings 

  • pair exquisite hand made chocolate to wine

  • pick and taste different varieties of grapes straight from the vine

What our guests say about this trip

"Hunter Valley Wine Tour"

This wine tour with Ben was delightful and everything went as well or better than expected. It began with a trip to see kangaroos in the wild - how fun! Ben was very easy to talk to and a delight to be around for an entire day. The day flew by - unlike some tours when you just want them to end! 
As far as the quality of the wine tour, his selection of wineries was perfect for us. He allowed us access to a private tour of one vineyard's wine making as well as a trip around the winery. His lunch stop selection was excellent and was one of the highlights of our Sydney stay.
I would definitely call Ben for any of your tour needs while in the Sydney area. You cannot go wrong!

"Fantastic three days of touring!!!"

There is no better way to see a lot in a short bit of time than using a good, local tour guide. Ben Barry of The Private Tour Guide made our visit to Sydney and the surrounding areas an experience to remember. 

 

He is prompt, dependable and a delight to travel with. He provided us with tons of background information, never hurried us, allowed us to tell him what we wanted to see or planned our day himself, whichever we chose. He made sure we saw all of the traditional tourist sites and still managed to work in wonderful out of the way places we knew nothing about but enjoyed immensely. 

 

As someone else said, it was like visiting with a friend and we had loads of fun. I cannot say enough good things about him. I would give him more than 5 stars if possible and wouldn't hesitate to go with him again if we are ever in the area.

Thanks, Ben, for a wonderful trip and wonderful memories!
