Thursday 27th, August

We have been working closely with the tourism industry, government authorities and cellar doors in the Hunter Valley and have taken action in line with their recommendations and regulations.  

We are currently operating our ‘Private Tour‘ option for groups up to 10 people.  Because of the great demand for our mixed group ‘Gourmet Wine Tour‘, we have decided to open this tour with the following restrictions:

  • One booking per bus – exclusive use for this group.
  • Midweek bookings 4 people minimum, 10 people maximum
  • Weekend bookings 8 people minimum, 10 people maximum 
The Hunter Valley is extremely busy on the weekends and we’re booking out fast.  There are limited seats at each venue due the 4 square metre rule and many cellar doors won’t take group bookings.  We hope to open our 13 and 20 passenger buses when the 4 square metre rule ends.

As a tour operator we:

  • Have a Covid-19 safety plan
  • Keep contact records (name, phone and address of each customer for 28 days)
  • Encourage social distancing where possible
  • Wear a face mask while in the vehicle.
  • Clean and sanitise tour vehicles after each tour (as we have always done)
  • Wipe down handles and surfaces regularly during the day

As a customer you will need to:

  • Complete COVID ‘check in form’ before tour
  • Provide contact details for each passenger (full name, phone, address)
  • Inform tour guide if feeling unwell or having flu-like symptoms
  • Use provided hand sanitiser before entering the tour vehicle
  • Practice social distancing where possible and good hand hygiene.
  • Wear a face mask while on the bus (optional but preferred)

Due to the nature of the close proximity of passengers on our buses, we can’t accommodate passengers who live in or have visited any COVID-19 hot spots in the last 14 days.  Please refer to the NSW Government Health Website for hot spot and case locations.

Please respect that we have made this decision for the safety of our employees, other passengers and associated Hunter Valley businesses.  

That’s all for now, stay safe, stay healthy & we’ll hopefully be treating you to a diVine day out in the Hunter again soon.

Cheers, Roy & Jen
