Unfortunately this audio tour is no longer available. I rang the Hunter Valley Visitors Centre (July 2014) as the Yellow Brick Guide website was down and they confirmed it. What a shame as we would have liked to do it again.

My sister and I rented the Yellow Brick Guide from the Hunter Valley Visitor Center (http://www.visitnsw.com/visitor-information-centres/hunter-valley-wine-country-tourism-visitors-centre), picked one route and had so much fun! It was well worth the money especially since it leads you to vineyards well off the main road. The Yellow Brick Guide is incredibly accurate at giving you fair warning on when to turn. Keep in...

We had time to do the three routes but didn't finish the last one. This is a great way to see the Hunter Valley at your own pace and not get lost. We would not have found some of these great wineries and lookouts without the Yellow Brick Guide. The narrator is quite amusing and the wine makers very informative.... More

This being our fifth visit to the Hunter Valley, we were looking for something different to do. Discovered this guide on Trip Advisor and thought we would give it a try. Booked the guide online and picked it up when we arrived at the Visitors' Centre. There are three tours in all and we completed one each day, beginning with... More

Used the yellow brick road guide over the weekend and I absolutely loved it! I love how it brings you off the beaten track and tells you things only locals know. It was so interesting to hear info from local wine makers. If you are going to the hunter to do some wine tasting and want to take the day... More

We loved the whole concept of this as we'd much prefer to explore on our own, at our own pace rather than with a bus load of others. This guide took us to some seriously beautiful spots that we definitely wouldn't have found on our own. What a fantastic product, easy to use and fun. All towns could use one... More

After reading positive feedback on TripAdvisor, we decided to give the "Yellow Brick Guide" GPS system a go and we're so glad we did! We booked and paid for it online for our 3 day visit (it's the same price regardless if you have it for one day or more). The GPS was ready for us to collect when we... More

Just wanted to congratulate you on your innovative and entertaining guide to Hunter Valley wineries! I've been visiting the Hunter for over 40 years, and, thanks to your Guide, discovered a part of the valley I've never visited. The Guide is entertaining and easy to use, and the host and guest wine growers very informative and easy to listen to.... More

This was a present for my parents and it was a great way to spend time with my family and taste some yummy wines at our own pace. I'd definitely use the yellow brick guide again, but over a few days so I could do all 3 tours.
