About Us

mudgee wine explorer tours

Mudgee Explorer Tours began as a social experiment, connecting quality Mudgee wine with quality visitors. Following a trip to Peru in late 2015, I was impressed by the hospitality of the Peruvian people, and noticed that they seemed very connected to each other, and to their beautiful  environment. I wanted to bring some of that flavour home and recreate a similar experience in Aus.

In acknowledgement of our roots, we now send $1.30 from every tour ticket sold, back to Peru to help my friends through the collapse of international tourism, following Covid 19. Domestic tourism in Australia is doing very well, and so we share our good fortune.

Mudgee Explorer Tours started operating in June 2016, with one Explorer and one minibus. Now with tweleve staff, eight minibuses and one guesthouse, we’re having more fun than ever!

Mudgee Wine Tours are our speciality. We’re Mudgee’s premier wine tour company for a reason. 100% relationship-based, we take you only to the wineries where you are treated as #1. Because great service is our number one priority. We choose staff who genuinely love people, and treat you like friends. So you’ll come away with memories to treasure for life.

While we try to take you to wineries where tasting fees are kept at a minimum, please budget $5 per person per stop, for tasting fees.

Can i pick which Mudgee Wineries to see?

You can request wineries that you would like to include when booking. We will take requests into consideration, but we need to cater to the whole group and it also depends on the availability of the wineries.

Where do you stop for lunch on a full day Mudgee Wine Tour?

Lunch will be either in another winery, or in one of our local pubs.

Please budget around $20 PP for lunch.

Do you do Mudgee Wine Tours every day, and how many people are needed?

Mudgee Wine Tours run every day, excluding Christmas day and New years day. There is a minimum number of 2 people needed for the tour to go ahead.

Will you pick us up from our Mudgee Accommodation?

We pick up and drop off from your accommodation in Mudgee, if you are in town or up to 7kms out.

Will there only be wine to try?

There will mostly be wine, but we can include olive tasting, honey tasting and liqueur tastings too, on request.

How many people in a bus?

We use mini buses so they are more intimate and personal, our buses have 11 seats, we also have an 8 seater bus.

What happens with tasting fees?

We try to stick mainly with wineries that offer either a complimentary tasting, or a $5 PP fee.

While we try to keep tasting fees at a minimum for you, the tasting fees are at your own expense.

Do you do private tours?

Private tours can be arranged if you buy 10 seats on the minibus.

Can we drink alcohol on the bus?

No! It is against the law. Luckily you don’t spend much time in the bus as all the Mudgee wineries are so close. We supply water and chips for you.
