The tour was great! Very personal and accommodating. We felt very looked after the whole time. Everyone we met were nice and easy to talk to. Thank you so much for a great day! Ben N Sydney

I highly recommend Tour Mudgee Now & Then; they were easy to book with, had some useful suggestions of wineries to visits and even made us a reservation for lunch. We, a group of 7, were picked up from our accommodation a little way out of Mudgee and taken to our selected wineries by our tour guide Mark. Mark was friendly, fun, and being a local very knowledgeable of the area, all of which added to our amazing day of wine tasting. Thanks Mark! Megan C Sydney

Thank you to Mudgee Tours for a great friendly and very informative day. We enjoyed our day with you immensely. Look forward to returning to Mudgee in the near future. Richelle R Richmond

Thanks again for such an enjoyable day on the wine tour. We were all extremely impressed with the wineries and how well it was all organised. Achieving as many wineries we did in a day may not have been your record but it certainly was for us! I will be recommending you guys to others when they visit Mudgee and I am sure we will see you again when we are back in town. Erin G Sydney

Thanks so much for Sunday, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. All the pictures look fantastic! I will definitely spread the word, have already told everyone in the office about it this morning. Elaine M Coogee

Thanks Mark! We had such a fun day visiting the wineries and it was great to hear about Mudgee's history as we were driving around. It's so nice to be shown the area by someone who so clearly loves it. We'll be booking in with you next time we're down there - if you'll have us! Sarah B Sydney

I’m sure I can speak for the whole group to say that we all thoroughly enjoyed the day; fantastic weather; great wines; lovely lunch; lots of fun and finishing with some tasty cheese and beer. John R Sydney

Fantastic day for Michelle and I. Mark planned everything ahead, even starting a little early to take us to the farmers market. Above and beyond. He was 2 steps ahead of us, knew Mudgee really well, introduced us to the people at the cellar doors and even made time for a drink with us at the end of the day. His photography is really good and he's a generous thoughtful guy. And above all an easy to talk to, nice bloke. Couldn't recommend his tours enough. Now we have to find a group to take back with us :) Thanks Mark!! Jeremy B Canberra

We had such a fabulous time on the tour, Mark was very personable and made our experience very memorable. We had a ball and would recommend everyone we know to use Mark if they were ever doing to do a wine tour in Mudgee. 10/10! Emma du B Penrith

Mark from Now and Then mudgee tours provided our group of 8 with a relaxed and flexible exploration of the wineries and local produce. Mark was friendly, accommodating and responsive to our last minute changes of plan to include growers market and cheese tasting. Nothing was any trouble. Highly recommended to take the thinking and hassle out of wine tasting. Mary W Sydney

Fantastic wine tour Mark is a great guide,we had an awesome 1/2 day, not only did we do 6 winerys we also went to the cheese factory, honey farm and brewery!! Thankyou so much for making our stay wonderfull, we will be back real soon. Jilly and Wayne Goulburn

We had a wonderful tour with Mark, it was an absolutely beautiful day to be in Mudgee and he knew just the right wineries. Looking forward to another visit! Joni M Sydney

We are happy for you to quote that we had a wonderful time. You were very knowledgeable about the local history and the car ride between wineries was entertaining. I would like to add that we appreciated your gentlemanly nature in that not a bottle of wine was carried by us. Thanks again for your time and we will be recommending you to our friends. Kate B Blue Mountains

Thank you so much for a wonderful day, your care, effort and enthusiasm made it a great day for us all. The planning of the day, the timing of each stop and your help with sorting our purchases made it very smooth and relaxed. We felt very well looked after and appreciate all you did! Have already given your business card to someone at work! Gemma B Campbelltown

In regards to yesterday thank you so muuch - we all had a fantatic time. Thanks for your hospitality and attention to detail. It was great to be taken around by somebody with such great knowledge of Mudgee and you had some great suggestions to wineries we hadn't heard of such as Optimiste. We also really enjoyed the added extras like having bottles of water in the car for everyone as well as you bringing your camera and then sending all the snaps through! We have recommended your tour into our guesthouse and we will be sure to like your page on Facebook. Kate W St Ives

We had an amazing time. you were able to fit so much into our day and impart a lot of knowledge along the way. thanks for fitting us in on the busy easter long weekend. We were very grateful. we would definately recommend doing a private waiting around for bus loads to finish purchasing Renae Sydney

We would highly recommend Mark and Mudgee Tours – and have been since our trip to anyone we speak to. He had plenty of options to customise our tour and it couldn’t have been better. Quick to reply to contact, full of great advice, on time, fabulous personality, well liked by both our group and the wineries we visited, reasonably priced and even took photos for us. We had a group of six and we all feel the same. Super happy!!! Carly L Sydney

Hi Mark, great photos of a great day. It was lovely meeting you and Julia, Yvonne and Merv. Your attention to detail and your care in looking after us and our wine was very much appreciated. Look forward to seeing you again on another trip. Linda M Newcastle

It was a great day with some excellent recommendations from you on wineries. We particularly enjoyed Short Sheep, as well as all the other snippets of information and history you gave us about the surrounding area. We'll definitely recommend you to any friends and family who head up to Mudgee! Sam J UK

Ross & I had a very enjoyable wine tour with Mark. We went to wineries that were all different & tasted some great wines. Mark was attentive to our wishes & tastes. A great way to spend an afternoon in Mudgee. Tracey and Ross F Sydney

Celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary, we wanted to escape the tour buses and go at our own pace. So glad, then, to find Mark at Tour Mudgee, who picked us up promptly from our lodging for a day of wine tasting. We had a lovely day with Mark, who was friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. We had no preferences about what wines we tasted or where we went so Mark put together a great itinerary that mixed both the smaller and more established wineries in the region. There were no fixed times and we could come and go as we pleased. We'll definitely go with Mark again on our return. He even acted as our photographer for the day, which was a nice touch, and sent them through to us the very next day. Hayley & Travis B Sydney

Thank you so much for the photos and the cellar door list. We had a wonderful time, you were a great guide and we will highly recommend you to our family and friends if you continue with the wine tour business. Karlena B The Shire

We had an amazing day with Mark last weekend. Mark took great care of us, arranging a private tour in his 7 seater car to allow for our car capsules with our bubs. The wine and company was fabulous, we couldn't have asked for a better tour guide or a better day. We will be back next year! Sally & Chris K - Sydney

Thanks so much again for yesterday. We all had a great day and your pick of wineries was fantastic. Thanks again. Chris G - Dubbo and Sydney

My friends and I had a fantastic time doing a full day wine tour with Mark! His knowledge of the local area and relationships with the local winemakers is great and we visited so many fantastic wineries during our day. Mark was also fully flexible with the itinerary, letting us pick where we wanted to go but also recommending great vineyards based on our taste. I'd definitely book another tour with Mark next time I'm in Mudgee and would recommend Mudgee Tours to anyone else visiting the area. Sarah B Sydney

Thanks so much for an awesome day on Saturday. This was the best wine tour I have ever been on. Mark was so personable and accommodating he even made our dinner reservation for us! Highly recommend Mark, we will definitely be repeat customers! Louise J, Hawkesbury

The Mudgee Wine tour we did was great. Mark was friendly and approachable. He had planned a day for us but allowed us the flexibility to stay longer somewhere or try somewhere different as this wasn't our first time in Mudgee and we had a small group. Couldn't recommend him enough. He arrived on time to pick us up from our accommodation which was out of town and stayed with us all day. As an added bonus which I loved he takes photos of your day so you have something besides all the wine and food you may buy to remember your day. We will certainly be booking him again. Lauren Mc - Central Coast

We had an awesome day with Mark this weekend. His laid back approach, super friendly conversation and all round knowledge made for so much fun. We had struggled to find a private tour for just 2 couples but Mark was the perfect solution. We already have a booking in to come back next year. Mark, thanks a million. Emma C - Engadine

We were lucky enough to be on a private tour, so in the end I think we managed to fit in some ten or eleven wineries, plus a trip to Baker Williams Distillery! We capped the day off with a beer at Mudgee Brewing Company, and Mark drove us back to Short Sheep Micro-Winery with all of our supplies, even helping us unload it all! He has lots of interesting stories to tell (about Mudgee and his experiences abroad, a very worldly fellow) and is such a friendly character - he really made sure we got the most out of our day. I can't recommend Now & Then enough! We will be back in March 2016, and will definitely be staying at Mark's beautiful Thady Cottage. Tessa & Chloe - Sydney

We had a personalised tour for 10 family members, organised for us by Mark. All the family including the children enjoyed the day very much, Mark was very friendly and had a comprehensive knowledge of the area and the Wineries. NOTHING was to much trouble. We would highly recommend Mark to an one wanting to do a tour around the Mudgee area. The photos he took of the day were great. Glenys & Family

My family purchased a weekend in Mudgee for my birthday.I hadn't been there for 12 years or more. So we contacted Mark to take us on a private tour for a day. Mark was great! organising our tour to where we wanted to go plus adding other locations we hadn't known about. We had another couple join us on the day which worked out fantastic! We all had such a fun relaxed day visiting the honey farm, the goat farm & a couple of wineries. We finished the day with a beer tasting at Mudgee Brewing Company. Mark was kind enough to drive us back to our accommodation even though our tour had finished. Mark was very friendly, knowledgable & he took some great photo's of us on our day out. I would highly recommend Now & Then Tours! Thanks again Mark! Rod - The Shire, Russell - Manly

Mark was professional and organized weeks prior to our tour. Everything from organizing our tour spots, to booking us lunch and suggesting a great dinner & breakfast locations. Never having been to Mudgee before, a group of my friends and I had a quick weekend away and wanted to see as many wineries and get the best experience as we could. Mark planned the day out perfectly, and was flexible if we wanted to go to any other places that were suggested by friends. Mark picked us up in a mini bus (plenty of room for all of our wine!) took many photos for us throughout the whole day and sent them via email after the tour was complete. The locations were perfect, I couldn't have had a better experience in Mudgee. Very friendly and happy to stay and have a drink with us all once the day was over. Thanks again for an amazing experience. Rebecca - Penrith

My husband and I visited Mudgee for our 1st wedding anniversary. Mark was so friendly & accommodating throughout the booking process and flexible with days (we wanted a Sunday tour). He picked us up with a complimentary bottle of wine as an anniversary gift which was so thoughtful. We were impressed by the comfort of his vehicle which was also fully air conditioned. Mark was flexible with the itinerary and happy to work the day around the vineyards we had already visited. Throughout the day we visited 7, including a long leisurely lunch at Lowe Winery. Mark is a gentleman who opened the car doors for us and carried our wines. He also took photos throughout the day so that we didn't need to worry. We were incredibly impressed by Mark's service and, having toured through many wine regions with various companies, rate Mark's as premium for a very reasonable price. We would not hesitate to book with Mark again and will recommend him to family and friends visiting the region. Vanessa & Ben - The Shire

What a christmas eve! Definately one to remember with my family visiting from the uk. Mark was fantastic throughout the booking process and throughout the whole day, arriving promptly and being so very helpful throughout the tour- even carrying our many wine bottles to the van!We were very impressed with Marks attention to detail, adapting the tour and vineyard bookings as the day went by. The tour planned by Mark himself, included a variety of vineyards and it was great for Mark to join us for a drink at Mudgee Brewary to conclude the day! Thank you! Aimee T and family - U.K.

First visit to Mudgee & we will definitely be back. Mark was so accommodating. He was knowledgeable about the area, had great relationships with the wine makers. Helped us to plan our route & took into account our preferences. Provided water (definitely needed!) Was so attentive. Caught a blue tongue lizard! Invited us into his home (B&B) to meet his beautiful family, including 2 dachshunds. Asked if we needed to stop for groceries on our way back. Offered to book our evening meal. Carried all of our wine purchases, writing our names on each box so we wouldn't fight over them. Took a great set of photos which we will treasure forever. Mark had thought of everything. We will definitely be back & will stay at Thady Cottage next time too. Highly recommended. 10/10. Grace K - Sydney

Mark was easy to communicate with and very prompt. Picked us up at our accomodation and even our little pooch was welcomed. He gave us his pick of wineries and we didnt have to worry about a thing. We got dropped off at the Brewery and he kept our wine purchases until the next day and dropped it off at our accomodation - what a service !? He even took pictures of the day and sent them the same evening .. amazing memories. Totally recommend using him - he enjoys taking people out and about and it rubs off on the people he takes out. Femke M - Sydney

My girlfriends and I went on a wine tour with Mark (and his lovely wife) last weekend. We had an absolute blast. The choice of wineries was fantastic and we were also able to select preferences. Mark was accommodating, informative, super friendly -and very patient post all of us having probably more than our fair share of Mudgee wine and getting a little bit rowdy!! He also took pictures throughout the day and sent them promptly on to us. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!! Thanks again Mark!! Amy G - Sydney

We had a fabulous day on Our wine tour with Mark he was informative very friendly and didn't make us feel we were on a schedule for the day it was most relaxing. Would do it again and recommend to others lots of fun. Thanks Mark Julie B - Newcastle
