Took this tour on Thursday March 12, 2020. Pick up from my hotel which was just outside CBD. Driver was very knowledgeable and took us to 4 great wineries and great lunch. Driver went the extra mile to help us out to ensure a greasy day had by all.

hugho673 March 2020

Bill really knew the area and had a great energy about him. The food was by far the best lunch we've had on this kind of tour, better than most of the food we had in Melbourne! Would strongly recommend over larger tours

pennyg660 March 2020

Bill was a fab guide and very welcoming from the start. Kept us fully informed throughout and the vineyards we visited were all excellent. I would certainly do this tour again next time in Melbourne.

Karen W March 2020

Did the tour in March 2020, solo traveller, was meant to be on the Mornington Peninsular tour, but the company cancelled as lack of people Did the Yarra valley instead. Great start with a collection close to my accommodation in CBD at 9am, small group, only 7 of us. Really nice day, saw some Kangaroo, tasted some lovely wine and cheese at the first location, lunch was amazing, did another 4 tastings (some not as good, but that is personal taste) dropped off again approx. 4.30pm Tour guide Bill was very knowledgeable, and funny. Good day out

kevinbZ2266JU March 2020

Great tour of Yarra Valley highlights. Our tour guide, Bill, could not do enough for us. We stopped at some great wineries plus Bill went on a few side roads to make sure we saw plenty of wildlife and vegetation in the area. He was very informative and always doing that little extra to make the tour an exceptionally memorable one. I highly recommend ….*******

Megan S February 2020

My boyfriend and I had the best time on this tour. We are from Phoenix, AZ and have done lots of wine tours in California and Oregon, and this one was by far the best. Bill was so funny, knowledgeable and laid back. On the way from our hotel in Melbourne to Yarra Valley he took us to see wild kangaroos! Everyone knew him at all the wineries and he made the day so fun. The wineries we went to were excellent and the lunch was delicious. We did not want the day to end. Would highly recommend booking this tour with Bill.

msabi17 February 2020

My wife and I had an amazing time on this tour! Bill (our guide) was incredibly knowledgeable about the Yarra Valley and all the wineries we visited. 10/10 would tour with him again. Request Bill by name when you sign up!

415biancao February 2020

Had a great time with Our driver Bill, he was very knowledgeable and friendly. Great stops along the way. Would definitely recommend

Samantha B February 2020

We had a great visit to the wineries with Bill, who was friendly and knowledgable. We spotted wild kangaroos on our way to Yarra Valley, which was a pleasant surprise. The wineries we were taken to all had stunning views and served great wine. We were pleased to have done this trip on a weekday because it was very quiet and there were hardly any people at each stop. Top tip: have a hearty breakfast before you go because you will be trying a lot of wines!

Foxy66travel February 2020

The scenery was beautiful. Our driver Bill was skillful,patient and had an abundance of humor The wineries and food were besutiful

Pickett830 February 2020

Bill was our tour guide. He was very prompt with pickup and drop off and very knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a great time getting to know all of the people in our group. I would definitely make sure you eat some breakfast before you go. You will be trying LOTS of wine. The views were incredible. We saw plenty of kangaroos. Lunch was fantastic. Overall I would highly recommend this tour. :)

DougViages February 2020

I believe we were on the same day with Nomad75978. Bill, our driver and guide, kept things moving and entertaining. The wine tasting stops were informative and fun. Lunch was super, but the tasting offered at that location was subpar. The sparkling wine offered with an oyster was memorable!

Duncan_M February 2020

Not particularly good value Lots of time spent travelling, Guide was enthusiastic, nice person. Some of the vineyards were pleased to see us, others were just going through the motions. Lunch was said to be excellent but really wasn't

Nomad75978 January 2020

Our Yarra Valey Win tour was excellent! Our guide, Bill, was superb! He was very good at giving us at local information on the drive to the wineries and pointing out some interesting facts! He even spotted some Kangaroos in the distance with his trained eye and pulled over for us to see them! His knowledge of knowing the wineries and when to re-order our route if one looked particularly busy was very helpful. The wineries themselves were all great, staff gave great info and tasting notes at each and the lunch stop was superb!

dianesjavier January 2020

This was an amazing tour of the wineries and food in the Yarra Valley. It was a small group tour (ended up being just three people and our guide Bill) which was amazing. I love traveling on small group tours because it feels more intimate and it feels less like herding cows! The wineries that we went to were no the same ones listed in my tour packet (given to me by my travel agent so probably not accurate), but that was completely fine since I didn't really have expectations of them anyway. Our pick-up was right on time and we headed off to the Yarra Valley (just a note- the roads can be quite wind-y so if you get car-sick just be aware). Bill is very knowledgeable about wines and the area so it was great to ask him questions. He pointed out some interesting sites to see along the way which was also nice. The wineries: DeBertoli Winery -note: my favorite winery for the wines. Also came with a cheese tasting which was really really nice. Hallie really knew her stuff! Coombe Winery -Luke was great and took awesome care of us. Also, this winery was by far one of the prettiest I've ever seen since it also has historical value which I found so cool. See if you can get a pre-arranged tour of the gardens if you're so inclined (I wish I had known ahead of time to ask). Dominique Portet (for lunch and a tasting) - note: there was a tasting and a full glass of wine with lunch. I had the fish for lunch which was quite lovely, although the service was a tad slow (but maybe that was just me?) Helen and Joey - note: This was my favorite experience because Helen herself gave us the wine tasting. She's this incredible woman who's a chemical engineer turned winery owner, and I loved her for her knowledge and hard work ethic! St. Hubert's - note: Sally managed to squeeze us in between a few big groups which was super nice of her and the cab here was one of my favorites. Thank you, Bill for such an incredible day. Super grateful for you!

NickyMnz December 2019

A fantastic day out with Epicurean Tours. Pick up and drop off at your hotel door. Bill is a great guide which made for a fun, informative and relaxing day. De Bortoli winery was a highlight.

l74carenb December 2019

We just returned from our trip to AU and this tour was a highlight. We were fortunate enough to have Bill as our guide and to be touring that day with just one other couple. The van was comfortable and we never had to deal with big groups or buses infringing on our day. We visited 4 wineries and additionally our wine/lunch at the Coombs estate was absolutely outstanding. Bill picked us up from our apt. and was accommodating, friendly, funny and a joy to be with from start to finish. I can’t say enough about traveling in a small group, and this tour is worth every penny.

ninagarcia1988 December 2019

Had a great Boxing Day adventure with Bill. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. Recommend!

539yuel December 2019

The guide was super helpful and funny. We had little knowledge in wine before we went on the trip and the experience we had completely changed our idea of wines. At the same time, all the cellar doors are very clean and friendly, some of the cheese pairing we had was really good.

Shannonprobinson December 2019

We absolutely loved it!! Had the most amazing time with Bill as our guide. He made sure we squeezed in all 5 wineries. Would do this again in a heartbeat.

Z467ZVamys December 2019

Nicci was an absolute gem of a tour guide, she was incredibly flexible and gave my partner and I some brilliant information and recommendations during our tour and for the rest of our stay in the Yarra Valley Nicci also was kind enough to pack our wines and send them home to Sydney for us, this made it so much easier for us and took away the stress of flying home with extra baggage. I highly recommend these guys for your tour, they make you feel so comfortable and are more than happy to accomodate any requests you might have :)

travelmacaugust1955 December 2019

Booked a trip through TripAdvisor. Paid my $NZ456.00. Had to cancel trip because of medical emergency. Cancelled trip via TripAdvisor website on Friday 29 November. Yarra Valley Food txted me the night before the (cancelled) trip to confirm pickup the next morning. I told them I had cancelled. They were very gracious and said that TripAdvisor had not advised them. I told them we would try again next year. As at Sat 7 December no refund from TripAdvisor, no acknowledgement of cancellation. Yarrow Valley Food: ***** TripAdvisor: _
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
