Awesome experience highly recommended
Miranda_D, Apr 2022
Todd (who works for Dave's) was fantastic, knowledgeable and made the experience amazing, we had the best day and were able to see, experience and taste many different types of wines, go to distileries, have lunch as well as try great cheeses, chocolates and fudge. The area is absolutely beautiful. Bus airconditioned, we got to choose music, never in bus long before the next stop, bought far more than we intended but had a great day. Able to cancel up until the day before also. Highly recommended!
Response from Host, May 2022
Cheers for the 5 stars and we'll let Todd know he goes alright! Regards, Gregg
Great driver, well organized tour, but okay winery selections
Murrel_P, Mar 2022
Our driver was really fun and everything was organized really well. My rating came down really due to the selection of wineries. It's unfortunate the tour does not tell you which wineries they are going to beforehand (I also tried reaching out to them to ask before booking but did not get a response) - I probably would have opted for another way of being transported around and picked other wineries. The cheese/chocolate tasting is also not a wine paired cheese/chocolate tasting but actually just a cheese/chocolate tasting. But the driver was very sweet and the entire group made the entire day pretty fun.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Hi Murrel, Sorry to hear your experience wasn't up to scratch. I have looked at your booking and we had a Covid issue with that day and couldn't accommodate all our guests, so we did use another company for your bookings which we did inform you of. That is also the reason we couldn't confirm the wineries earlier in the week. I have checked and the partner company does not provide a pairing as we do, so i feel you have not gotten the level of tour we provide. We are greatly affected by Covid, but we do have standards to uhold, so sorry for this and will contact you directly to see how we can fix it up. Regards, Gregg
Exceeded my expectations
Sophie_W, Jan 2022
We had an excellent tour, Todd our tour guide was great! I particularly liked the stops that were paired with the cheese and chocolate. It was cool to see how food pairing can change how you taste wine. Overall, had an amazing day would highly recommend this tour!
Response from Host, Feb 2022
So glad you loved the tour Sophie! We look forward to seeing again on a tour in Sydney, Canberra or even Newcastle. Regards, Gregg
Can’t get better then this !
Leeanne_M, Nov 2021
We had an absolute blast and cannot recommend this service more highly. From the moment we were picked up we were made feel welcomed , Greg (aka Dave ) went above and beyond to make our day a memorable experience and we can’t thank him enough. I have been to the hunter and on other tours ( not with Dave obviously ) but this was by far 100% the BEST. He takes customer service to the next level and more. Good luck to his offsider Todd who was training in the day you have some big shoes to fill but no doubt you’ll be just as amazing . Will definitely be booking your services in the future !!!!
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thanks for the glowing review Leeanne! Thanks for booking our first tour back in the Hunter after such a long break and i can't wait to have you back in January/February when the grape harvest in full swing. Regards, Gregg
