It was a wonderful experience! Our driver/chef/tour guide, Jimmy is so capable and humorous. We went to Sydney Fish market to know how to get fresh and good quality sea food. And The 3 wineries and the dairy shop we went to were all good in their own way. The wine and the food prepared by Jimmy go absolutely great combination. Highly recommended!
This is a value for money experience! From the transportation, to the meals and all the fun in between, this tour is so well planned, organized and executed by only one man, Chef Jimmy! Hats off to his filling and savory meals (breakfast, snacks and lunch) that pair really well with the wines served. This activity is also a great way to meet new friends. Highly recommended especially for first time visitors In Sydney.
The tour consists of a group of 15. We were picked up in the different locations across the CBD, headed to the Sydney Fish Market to buy ingredients for our food for the day. Our tour guide Jim is also our driver and chef for the entire day. He was very accommodating, very knowledgeable and can be flexible according to your needs. The food that he prepared for the wine pairing were exceptional. I personally liked the asparagus in truffle oil and his Kangaroo sliders are the bomb! I even requested for a mini surprise for my companion friend whose birthday falls on the day of our tour and Jim made it sure my friend feels special on that day. It was truly a very commendable activity.
Our Hunter Valley Wine Tour was an eye opener. We visited three wineries and got to appreciate a wide variety of Australian wine. All thanks to our tour guide, Jimmy who made all the difference. I particularly like his witty sense of humour as well as his attentiveness to details and to our needs. He was a most careful driver, a very knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide, and an exceptional chef. This trip is a must-go if you’re visiting Sydney!
Definitely a must try when visiting Sydney. There’s a lot of wine selection from every winery serving only the best of each kind. All the winery owners have kept us busy with the discussion of the advantages of their products. Jimmy was also very accomodating. His food is top notch. He gets the journey from the city to hunter valley a great experience. Great food plus great company. The best experience so far!
Jimmy the chef was so professional in introducing Sydney to me. The visit of fisherman market early in the morning was fun, the stop for making breakfast for us in wild and we had the unexpected sushi roll class after that was a nice surprise.
Of course the wineries visits were the good picks, We have lunch at one of the wineries which the foods were cooked professionally.
