Stopped for a couple of nights in the Hunter Valley on way back to Sydney and was looking for an activity that we could do as a family (while still enjoying some sneaky Hunter drops). This was a great fun option which we all enjoyed including our two girls 10 and 11. We had a great day for it -... More

Had an amazing day on the bikes - the guys at Grapemobile were really helpful and set out a route for us before we left. Most of the vineyards will deliver back to Grapemobile too so don't need to carry the wine with you! Definitely recommend for groups to do this

We had a group of 8 who hired bikes for the day and really enjoyed ourselves. I hear it's not a common way to see the Hunter, but I wouldn't have had it any other way. Considering we had only made an inquiry and not a booking, they were super helpful at accommodating us, despite it being clearly stressful with... More

Glen picked us up perfectly on time from our hotel and the whole day was so much fun. He gave us a really helpful map with routes to follow and was just so welcoming as it was our first time in Hunter Valley. We went to 5 vineyards and bought wine at most of them. It was really handy to... More

We had a fantastic afternoon in the Hunter Valley with Grapemobile. Glen and Ron were both really friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that Grapemobile is also a vineyard and we sampled some of their wines on arrival. Grapemobile supplied us with a map of the local area and suggested a couple... More

We had a great day with Grapemobile exploring the vineyards of Palmers Lane. Glenn is helpful, funny and knowledgable about the wines in the area. The bikes are good quality and the map provided nailed us to visit a range of wineries. This was the second time we have used Grapemobile as we enjoyed it so much and would thoroughly... More

This was by far the best thing we did in our long weekend in Hunter. It was quick and easy to get the bikes and was a brilliant way to see the vineyards at your own pace. And such a bargain!

Glenn has a good selection of well-maintained bikes available, and it's a fun ride around the Palmers Lane vineyards on a sunny afternoon, mostly on easy trails off the main roads. Glenn himself is a real character - the kind of fun-loving, talkative host that fits the occasion. We had a great day here.
