I felt very spoilt
I can absolutely recommend Sean and his team - they went the extra mile to ensure my trip to Melbourne was seamless. Huge thanks
Service first rate. I was notified that the direct flight I wanted had been put on so all changed with nothing for me to do and no extra cost. Everything I requested was dealt with efficiently and with the feeling it was no effort - certainly not for me. I have used DialAFlight for years and they have been consistently excellent.
Manny, Eve and Chris were all excellent and organised a fabulous holiday for us. Thank you all!
DialAFlight are my go to company for travel. They are always straightforward to deal with, always very pleasant and helpful and deliver exactly what I want. And my recent travel plans were no exception. When I had a query whilst abroad Jeff provided a fast and helpful response. I'm so happy I always book with DialAFlight.
The trip went well apart from the delays at Manchester due to lack of staff but that’s not your fault
Billy and Orlando were extremly helpful and all was fixed for us
Les is fantastic, as always! Prompt, thorough and lovely too!
Harry was very efficient friendly and helpful with our whole trip
I was very happy with the all round service
DialAFlight as good as ever!
Best service ever!
Allow more time between domestic flights and international flights - some airports are massive
I have always had great service from the team and will always use DialAFlight. I have recommended so many folk and they too have nothing but praise for their service. Nothing is too much trouble for them to make sure your trip or holiday goes smoothly
Always very helpful and excellent service. Everything well organised for my successful trip.
I have always found DialAFlight professional, helpful and patient.
Apart from the onerous journey my flights were excellent - it was only the arrival at Heathrow that marred the experience taking one and a half hours to get through Border Force
Dreamliner not as impressive as it sounds. Also food very poor.
Great service and always on the end of the phone
Brilliant customer service from William as usual - well done.
Calvin is simply the best travel agent I have ever dealt with
Always very efficient - given several flight options and made my selection of flight - all booked very quickly
Excellent support from Helen and her team which was excellent
Great service again, thank you
I have booked holidays with you for a number of years. Every time all arrangements have been perfect.
You sent the wrong email address for Qantas dangerous batteries!
Great experience dealing with Finn and his colleagues again. They make the process easy and I recommend them often!
Super quick and understood what I wanted straight off the bat. Helpful suggestions on where to stay and best seats on flight. Would definitely use again.
Everything fine, just what I asked for.
A very friendly, helpful and efficient service. The hotel you booked for us was excellent. I will certainly ask you to arrange our next trip.
You can raise a glass or two on this wonderful Australian journey through the wine regions of New South Wales, during which you will visit lots of famous wineries and get to sample their finest produce as well as the region’s epicurean delights . On this self drive trip, which begins and ends in the stunning city of Sydney, you stay in luxurious accommodation and have plenty of time for sightseeing between all those memorable vineyard visits.
Day 1 Sydney
Your New South Wales wine adventure begins in Sydney and on arrival at the airport you are met by one of our tour representatives for a private car transfer to your hotel in the city. You will be staying for the next three nights at the luxurious Intercontinental, which is a great base from which to explore. Situated in Circular Quay, the hotel boasts picture frame views of the city skyline, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House or the Royal Botanic Garden. Relax after the journey then head out to explore all the famous sights as well as the vast number of restaurants and bars which are conveniently right on your doorstep.
Day 2 Urban Wine Experience
Another day to relax and see more of the city before or after going on a Sydney Urban Wineries Taste and Tour excursion. You are taken to a winery where the head winemaker will teach you everything about the wine making process. At the end of the tour you arrive at a tasting table where you can sample six different New South Wales wines while enjoying a meat and cheese platter. Then as a souvenir, take away a bottle of wine to remember the experience.
Day 3 Sydney
Take a break from wine tasting today and travel around the city seeing the famous sights. No visit is complete without stopping at the iconic Sydney Opera House for a tour, walking around Circular Quay and Darling Harbour and visiting Bondi Beach. Other activities you could enjoy on this free day are a boat trip around the harbour or join other intrepid visitors on an adrenaline-pumping BridgeClimb.
Day 4 Orange
Today you can see more of the sights in Sydney and possibly check out the shops and some other beaches, before beginning the three and a half hour drive to Orange, where you will be staying for the next two nights at the Oriana, an old motel that has been converted into a fashionable four star property with an amazing restaurant called the Peacock Room. Relax after the drive and the rest of the day and evening is free.
Day 5 Orange
A free day to discover the many charms of Orange. Many places in Australia have a colourful past and Orange, not just because of its name, is one of them. The town bustles with culture and a sense of generosity that is typical of this part of New South Wales. Today you also have the option of visiting Rowlee Wines for an organised tour, or one of no fewer than 80 other wineries that have sprung up in the region with over 40 cellar doors. Foodies will also be spoilt for choice with excellent restaurants including award-winning Racine, Lolli Redini and Tonic.
Day 6 Mudgee
Leave the Oriana this morning and see some more of the sights in Orange before beginning the two and a half hour drive to Mudgee where you check in to the Evanslea Luxury Boutique cottage for a two night stay. Mudgee is known for its colonial buildings and historic town centre. If you’re feeling peckish, some of Mudgee’s best wineries have excellent restaurants, including di Lusso, Lowe Wines, Moothi Estate Vineyards and Robert Oatley Vineyards.
Day 7 Mudgee
A full day to relax and enjoy this typical Aussie country town. There are lots of wineries in the town itself, as well as the surrounding countryside, and most of them welcome visitors and offer tours and tastings. This whole area has a country charm and epicurean delights, thanks to its flourishing food and wine scene, but if you are feeling energetic another option today is to go for a bike ride around picturesque Lawson Park, on the banks of the Cudgegong River.
Day 8 Hunter Valley
This morning after breakfast you leave Mudgee and drive to the famous Hunter Valley for a memorable experience called Picnic Amongst the Wines. Begin with a tour around the on-site museum at the Audrey Wilkinson Cellar Door, followed by a masterclass and premium tasting with a wine expert. Then collect your bottle of wine and picnic hamper and choose your spot for a picnic among the vines. Tonight's accommodation in the Hunter Valley is the Kirkton Park Hotel.
Day 9 Hunter Valley
A Two Fat Blokes vehicle will pick you up this morning to begin a full day Uncork the Hunter tour. This excursion is the result of the company's 10 years of experience and everything, including lunch and a chocolate and wine pairing, is included. Enjoy multiple wine tastings and to round off a great day you are taken on a tour of a local brewery to finish with a few cold refreshing beers. After a memorable day you are dropped off at your hotel.
Day 10 Sydney
Your final drive of the tour today when you leave the Hunter Valley and head back to Sydney, which takes around three hours. After returning your hire car you can then stay on for a few days and see more of the sights, catch a flight to another part of Australia, or begin your journey home. This tour around the famous wineries of New South Wales is perfect for wine buffs and foodies or anybody wanting to get a fascinating insight into the wine regions of New South Wales.
