Our Reviews

Why are our reviews for another name? Wine Country Limousines is our first operating name. All our vehicles, drivers and services are the same. So these reviews apply to both business names.

I have been on two tours with both Joe and Chris, We cannot speak anymore highly of the service provided. We unfortunately had to cancel last minute and Chris was very accommodating under the circumstances. She even suggested places for me to propose to my Fiance. Whenever we are in the Hunter or have friends visiting we will be recommending.Thank you Joe and Chris.

Being our first time in thehthe Hunter Valley we decided to book a chauffeur. Chris picked us up and had our half day tour all booked, which allowed us to relax and take it all in. She was professional and full of knowledge and advise. She engaged in conversation and worked out pretty quickly what we liked and didn't and suggested places to visit the next day. She was flexible and adaptable and allowed us to take all the time we needed at each stop.Service was outside and her conversation was great also... We all really enjoyed our day out with her. Highly recommended ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We did a full day wine tour with Joe, from the outset he was friendly, accommodating and full of local knowledge and history. The tour was seamless, we did not feel rushed to leave one cellar-door to get to the next and Joe made sure to get photos at each vineyard. We were also lucky enough to spot some kangaroos! The day was a highlight of my parents' visit to Australia. Highly recommend!

Amazing day in Hunter Valley in Joe’s limo!! Four brilliant wineries, great spot for lunch, a distillery and a chocolate shop and he even dropped us off at the pub after we’d run out of time. Loads of local knowledge, very friendly, acted as our personal photographer for the day, let us out our music on as we drove us around and even threw in a few brain teasers to keep us sharp. Great guy, great day!

Great place with peaceful and beautiful surroundings. The wines beers, spirits, cheese and chocolates availability makes it all more worthwhile and only a two hour drive from Sydney, what more excuse does one need?😀

Joe and Chris are genuine people. They live in the Hunter Valley, they know and love the folk of the valley. They are courteous and honest and patient to a fault. It's no wonder all their ratings are 5 stars. Their vehicles are immaculate as is their dress. Very classy, authentic Australian People. They make every effort to accommodate their guests. Thanks for everything.

2 Ways to Plan Your Tour

There are two categories of wine experience tours.
  • Design your own: For those familiar with what the Hunter offers, you can design your own tour, including the destinations of your choice.
  • Tailor-made: On the other hand, if you’re new to the Hunter and you aren’t sure what’s available or what you’d like to experience, trust our local knowledge to design a VIP tour specifically for you.

*The number of destinations your experience includes depends on how long you linger at each venue.
