Hi I'm Sean!

You'll always have this Experience with me :)

Please contact us directly for booking details during Covid19 :) We have slightly different rules we need to adhere to. Click "Contact Host" to message us, or call 1800-CHEESE to discuss the small changes we've had to make.

I grew up in Sydney and love taking friends, family and travellers for adventures to the Hunter Valley.

It was my mother who first introduced me to the Hunter Valley when I was young. She drove me around and showed me the endless green hills and all the natural sights that it has to offer. I walked the vineyards, climbed the hills and admired fresh air.

When I was finally old enough to drink and appreciate wine, I fell in love with this area. I learned the lay of the land. Have built relationships here. And have never stopped coming.

The Hunter Valley wine/kangaroo experience was nothing short of amazing! Sean was a great guide who felt like an old time friend from the very beginning all the way through to the end. The morning started out with him meeting us at a coffee shop and buying us coffee while getting to know each other. From there we ventured up to the Hunter Valley were he carefully selected four wineries for my wife and I to go to based off our conversations with him and him trying to select wineries that would fit our taste. During the whole trip Sean provided great conversation and truly showed his love of wine and wanting to share his knowledge and passion with others. It could really be seen how much he cares about his guests, how he wants them to enjoy the trip, and teach us all a thing or two about wine. At each of the wineries we visited Sean bought the tastings for us, and then at the cheese shop we visited he carefully selected a few types of cheese for us to enjoy at the end of the day, again all based off our tastes, and there was never any pressure to buy bottles (though we definitely left with many because they were so good!). To close the day, he took us off the main road to find some kangaroos. Due to the rainy weather we had that day, they were super easy to spot, and we were so excited to see our first kangaroos in Australia. Overall, I cannot say enough about this tour. It ranks as one of the best wine tours we have ever done. Thanks Sean!

This was probably the best part of our trip. Meeting Sean for coffee in the morning and getting to know him and his great sense of humor as he got to know us was a great way to start the day. The wine tasting and wine presenters were fantastic at all 4 wineries we visited. Really loved Tina,Peter and Aaden who were so knowledgeable about wine and personable. I feel the cheese experience was more than I expected ...it was pretty amazing and thought that we definitely got our moneys worth tasting some amazing cheeses. And ending the day seeing wild kangaroos roaming made it all special. Sean was fantastic, funny, knowledgeable, witty and really wanted to make sure we had a great day which we did.

Such an amazing experience! I enjoyed every part of the day (even the car ride)! Sean is super knowledgeable and a great guide for a Hunter Valley Trip. No doubt that I would do this experience again, if i return to Sydney!

If you have to choose just one tour to do while in Sydney, this is the right choice! Sean took us on a personalized tour through different vineyards, always aware of what we would like most! Everything organized with great care! I felt safe, comfortable and special. And I couldn't forget the incredible wines we drank and the wonderful trip to the world of cheese! Plus I made great friends. Not only do recommend it, but I will do it again if I return to Sydney!

Highly recommend this wine tasting, cheese eating and kangaroo spotting experience. Sean was a brilliant host who couldn’t do enough for us. He looked after us and took us and some others to some amazing vineyards who he has made great connections with. It really is a personable and unique tour. The kangaroo spotting was the perfect finishing touch before heading back to Sydney. Loved it!
