Takashi N November 2019

I had a great time with Bill and other passengers and really enjoyed beautiful wines and food matching last Saturday.

Matthew L September 2019

Bill has an excellent tour guide that provided humor and useful information about our winery experience. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in wine or a Yarra Valley adventure outside of Melbourne!

Bruce A April 2018

Nicky, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the wines produced in Yarra Valley. She asked our tastes and tailored our visits to meet them. Lunch was provided at one of the wineries and it was very good. I highly recommend this tour.

nhermannator March 2018

Our guide Bill was absolutely the best. We visited a variety of wineries, each with its own special character. The lunch was lovely. You cannot go wrong by booking this fabulous wine day.

Lisa W March 2018

This was a great tour! Our driver Bill was funny and very informative. We went to a variety of wineries ranging from small, boutique to larger, more commercial enterprises.
Lunch was delicious and integrated nicely with our wine tasting. Great wines and the first stop wonderful cheeses too.

michael.kindle February 2018

We loved our day on the Yarra Valley!

cajjf1978.cj January 2018

This was a great experience I loved all of it - from our very nice and informative guide - to the great selection of vineyards we visited. one of which also did one of the best dry apple ciders I have tasted in a while. it was a brilliant day totally do it!

bethanyroneil January 2018

Great Tour! It was a small group, only six of us. Bill took us to 5 different stops and was very knowledgeable about the area and about wine. I would highly recommend this tour to others.

mscammann November 2017

This tour was wonderful. Our guide, Nicci, was relaxed, flexible, knowledgeable, friendly and managed to keep things on track while never making us feel like we were on the clock. I always worry about tours - big buses and uninteresting stops - but this tour was everything I could have hoped for. Because it is a food and wine tour, everyone was looking for a similar experience and we all got along great. I was also one of only two singles on the tour, but that was completely irrelevant - everyone was interested in conversation, but willing to let you stay quiet and just take in the view as well. On top of all that, each stop was excellent. The wines were diverse and interesting, the folks managing each tasting were great, and the views were incredible. I can't recommend this tour enough. I'll be seeking out this type of tour again in the future.

Gaylene S November 2017

We had a great day and loved every minute of it. Our guide, Nikki, couldn't have been better - informative about the area, knowledgeable about the wines, and very caring, ensuring a memorable day for all.

Judith N October 2017

Our guide was very knowledgeable and prepared us for each stop before arrival. The wineries selected had nice wines. I dont know that it was necessary to visit 5 wineries as the types of wines were mostly the same because of the climate
We were very lucky to had a very congenial group, which doesnt always happen

Catherine F August 2017

What an amazing day. Bill our guide was so knowledgeable about the area and wine and answered all our questions. Very relaxed day out and even saw two albino wild kangaroos. We were treated to a great day out and a great lunch. Would highly recommend this tour.

Julie C June 2017

We had the best day, great guide, beautiful lunch, great wines and spectacular countryside. Would highly recommend.

Shanks February 2017

This tour was fantastic!! We went two weeks ago and had the best time. Our tour guide Bill was great. All of the wineries were really wonderful and it was great to be able to have the experience in a small group. My husband and I really enjoyed that aspect. At every winery they were expecting us and were set up and ready to go with delicious wines for us to try. At De Bartoli they did a wine and cheese pairing that was DIVINE. We had a wonderful lunch at the Tokar Estate the grounds are beautiful!. The food was really good. We were picked up at our hotel right on time and dropped off as expected and the ride was very comfortable. It was absolutely worth the money! A great, great excursion from Melbourne!

Kevin G February 2017

Our wine tour was fantastic - small group, very engaging guide Bill, lots of delicious wine and food... but mostly wine!

The Yarra Valley itself is gorgeous and home to lots of wonderful vineries. We were fortunate to experience a handful of great ones, and meet the owners and winemakers for most. In one, we got really lucky and got to see the mobile bottling truck - not something you see every day!

Besides being engaging, funny, and entertaining, our guide was very helpful in framing the day and helping those of us with limited luggage space decide where to buy bottles to bring home!

Jack M February 2017

Hard to believe what gorgeous vineyards are just beyond the skyscrapers of Melbourne! Our driver Bill was extremely knowledgeable and adapts easily to changes by owners to ensure your day is full and absolutely one of the best of your holiday. Even if you are not a wine drinker, the beauty is not to be missed. We purchased a bottle at each winery as every stop was unique and had something we wanted or a gift for someone on our souvenir list. Wouldn't have missed this excursion for anything!

Doug E February 2017

A great experience. Geat food and excellent wine selections!

William B January 2017

Our tour guide, Nickie was outstanding in her knowledge of the wineries and kept our tour on track with respect to having the right amount of time to visit each winery for tastings. Our lunch venue was a beautiful setting and the food was quite good. A perfect day!

Bernie December 2016

My wife and I took the Yarra Valley Food and Wine Small Group Tour on November 9 and were met by our guide Nikki at our hotel.
Nikki drove us out of Melbourne to the Yarra Valley providing an explanation of sights we saw along the way. The group of 5 stopped at 5 or 6 wineries where we tasted samples of multiple wines produced at each and had the opportunity to buy any wines we liked. In the early afternoon, we had a very nice lunch served at one of the wineries. The experience was wonderful and made all the better by Nikki.
We would highly recommend this experience.

hmurphyjnk December 2016

Amazing day! The wines, cheeses, and lunch were delicious, and the views were beautiful. The small group was great - only a few of us on this particular tour and we all, including the tour guide, got along well. We chatted, ate, drank, and laughed our way through the day. Perfect!

Jason W. F September 2016

A terrific experience with a lot of tasting at 5 great wineries. Bill was a great guide. I would highly recommend this tour.

Jillian R July 2016

Was a great day out with a very friendly and knowledgable guide.
We were able to meet some of the winemakers and the hospitality and generosity at all the wineries was fantastic.
Excellent lunch as well!!

Adrian G June 2016
