Hunter Private Tours
.... private, exclusive, bespoke!

Indulge in the delights of beautiful Hunter Valley Wine Country on your exclusive private tour.
You'll be chauffered in style - with luxury, privacy and sophistication unmatched by the usual group tour.
As a small, private tour we prefer to visit the small boutique wineries which truly reflect the Hunter terroir, and take the time to meet and chat with with the dedicated, passionate people who create some of Australia's iconic wines.
Create your own special day or we're happy to make some suggestions - premium boutique wines, artisan cheeses, hand made chocolates, organic vodka, craft beers - it's all here!

It's your private tour - we will never ask you to share your private tour - ever!

Guaranteed!

With our many friends and contacts we can arrange special winery tours, private tastings, vineyard walks, picnics in the vines .. and lots more!
We specialise in creating those special days which are truly memorable - special celebrations, family reunions, marriage proposals, romantic weekends!
We enjoy a fantastic reputation for our exemplary personal service and love to share our day with lovely people who share our passion for quality.
We look forward to chatting with you!

Thanks,
Grahame & Denise
