Itinerary
+
You'll start at
Pitt St at Barlow St
Haymarket NSW 2000, AustraliaIn front of the Service NSW Building on Pitt St. You will see a bus stop right near the Barlow St corner (and that's where we will pick you up). Search for Barlow St in Google maps as it's a small street not far from Central Station. It will then be easy to find Pitt St from there. The bus leave at 7.40am (not 7.20am shown above). We suggest you arrive early in case you are delayed or get lost. Please ring us before 7.40am (+61431894471) if you are delayed as if you are not at the pickup location when the bus arrives, we will begin the tour without you. We will have no idea if you are coming at all and the others guests will be our priority.

On the tour we stopped off in a wildlife centre , chocolate shop , cheese tasting and two wine tasting. For a tour for hunter valley the main purpose of the tour is wine tasting so going to two vineyards is quiet little. I think less time should be spent at the chocolate

Response from KangarrificTours, Public Relations Manager at Hunter Valley Wine and Wildlife Reserve Tour from Sydney
Responded 22 Oct 2019
Hi Adinkey, thanks for taking the trouble to review the tour. The success of our tour is based on the broad range of activities included. There are plenty of wine tours that focus only on wine so we wonder why you booked ours knowing we include two vineyards (it's very clear on our website). For most guests, two vineyards is enough and with the Hunter Valley having so much more to also offer, that's why we have designed such a diverse tour including the wildlife park, chocolate factory, cheese and brewery. May we ask that in future you check on a tours itinerary before you book it? As it's a little unfair to criticise a tour that did exactly as it promised, don't you think?
