2 friends and I booked this tour on a Friday, and it was just us so even though it was a public tour, it was basically private. We had Sam as our driver and tour guide, and he picked us up from our residence even though we we're supposed to meet at a cafe in Newcastle. Sam was an amazing bloke, was very chill and informative, definitely gave us relaxing yet fun vibes. We even went to a bonus distillery because we had time. Every place we went to was not disappointing and extremely memorable. The people you meet along the tour really make the day, just amazing, incredible, passionate people of their craft. Although quite expensive, can't say that it wasn't worth it. The only thing that could make the tour better if there was more cheese/chocolate or something to snack on, accompanied to all the wineries/breweries we visited, but that's a pretty big ask. To the company reading this, give Sam from Dave's brewery tour company a raise.

What a fantastic way to sample some of the best the Hunter Valley has to offer. Every tasting was ready for us when we arrived and each place offered something different so we weren't doubling up on experiences. Col, our driver, was friendly and clearly loves what he does, not to mention quite knowledgeable about the region. This was well worth the money.
