We often tell our guests that we aren’t really sure how Classic Tours came into being. As the owners of several other small businesses a lot of our spare time was spent enjoying the Hunter Valley wine region for ourselves. We both love a glass or two of great wine. Chris prefers whites, whilst Therese loves a great Shiraz. So it was that passion for the Hunter Region and a love of good wine and an opportunity to share that passion with locals and visitors that Classic Tours evolved.
Since 2022 we have shared the story of the spectacular Hunter Valley vineyards with hundreds of guests and assisted many groups to get their holidays started the right way with transfers between Newcastle and Sydney’s cruise terminals and airport. We love our golf day groups and providing transfers for wedding parties. There’s nothing like a cruise in our convertible Mustang to brighten your day either!
Classic Tours is an inclusive business and we embrace and celebrate people from all backgrounds, identities, and abilities. We believe that diversity is a fundamental strength, as such we are committed to fostering an inclusive and welcoming environment for all individuals. Our goal is to create a space where everyone can be themselves and feels valued, respected, and empowered.
We look forward to helping our current clients and new friends that we’re yet to meet, and are determined to ensure that each and every guest that travells with us has an experience to remember, so you too can walk away saying “best tour ever!”.
Meet The Team
The brains of the operation, Therese is your host and the driving force (literally!) behind Classic Tours. From phone enquiries to tour bookings, Therese will make sure that not only will you have an incredible day, but you’ll get there and back safely. She never gets tired of hearing her guests say to her “best wine tour ever!. When Therese isn’t showcasing the beautiful Hunter Valley vineyards to guests or conducting transfers between Newcastle and Sydney’s cruise ship terminals and airport, she loves to garden, go bush-walking and play with her three German Shepherds.
The man for all things technical, Chris is the quiet achiever behind the scenes. From web develeopment and promotions to mechanical repairs and maintenance, Chris ensures everything runs smoothly so you can enjoy your day with your friends. When he isn’t up to his elbows in something mechanical, he likes to cruise in his Mustang – after all, who wouldn’t?
