    Stop: 11 hours -
    After pickup by luxury bus in Sydney, your day trip starts by heading up the Pacific Highway and M1 Highway to Hunter Valley, stopping 90 minutes from Sydney for a tea or coffee break (own expense). (If you're staying in the Hunter Valley region, you can be picked up later in the morning from Cessnock or Pokolbin.) Throughout the day, you'll visit four wineries for tastings. Wine tasting is accompanied by a detailed description of the vineyard, the vintage you're tasting, and the style of wine typically made by the winemaker. Lunch is enjoyed at one of several venues, depending on the day, and you'll also visit cheese and chocolate outlets, which are popular stops in wine country. The tour ends in Hunter Valley in the mid-afternoon. If you're traveling back to Sydney, relax on your coach for the return drive to the central business district, where your day trip ends with drop-off.

Had a great tour checking out 4 of the wineries in the hunter...the organic winery was easily my favourite, but with 8-10 tastings per vineyard, everyone was pretty happy by the end! Our driver Paul was a good laugh too, would highly recommend this tour.
