Total review count and overall rating based on Viator and Tripadvisor reviews
Great package of sight-seeing locales with wineries, cheese making, fruit market, chocolatier, and generally just a great tour. Graham was an excellent driver. Only minor criticism I would offer was that at lunch, it was a very large venue (Di Bartoli Winery I think), with a large group there being very noisy. Took away from an excellent experience. Would rate this 9.5 out of 10. For those concerned about impact of bush fires in this area, was absolutely no evidence of that.
Rated very highly. Juliet was an excellent tour guide, fun and friendly. A very worthwhile experience.
This tour was incredible! Our tour guide Gary was friendly, approachable and a fountain of knowledge. Would definitely do this tour again and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to taste and learn about the flavours of the Yarra Valley.
A tour guy named Felix is awesome!
Safe drive, nice talk, perfect services.
Definitely I want to go with him if I take another tour at Go West.
Ricky was an amazing driver/guide. Wide variety of stops. Great background on the area. Small group worked well. Highly recommended
Garry was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable. Tour was great every stop was interesting, just felt it was a little rushed. Not enough time to soak in the area - which was so breathtakingly stunning.
Nathan is a great guide cum driver. A very well organised and punctual trip . We totally enjoyed ourselves.
This was a well-organized tour, with an excellent tour guide (Bryce). We visited three wineries, a dairy, a farm market, and a chocolaterie, and had good samples at all the locations. Lunch was very good as well. The wine tasting presentation at Yering Station winery was particularly good.
Our tour guide/ driver Alex is really cool, picked up ahead/on time and gave us a lot of info about Melbourne. He has a good sense of humor and played nice music in the bus too. We went to check the farm fresh first and tried the tasty fruits, juice, jams, and many more. Then we went to the cheese farm, it is really scrumptious! Then of course the adult fruit juice - WINE!! in De Bartoli (lovely place and bought few bottles), lunch in Rochford was awesome then Yering Station for another vineyard and tasting.. last but not least, the chocolate and ice cream factory with super nice view.. This trip is worth it and we don't mind going back soon =)
Good tour. Food was great.
Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Jon was very knowledgeable and did a great job keeping everyone on schedule-even when a few tried his patience! I chose this tour as it was a good mix and not focused entirely on wine. A great tour to take to see some of the countryside and enjoy local produce.
This was an excellent way to spend a day--all the stops were great--from fresh fruit, to cheese, to wine, to wine, to wine, to chocolate! Highly recommend it.
Great tour and Alex was a great guide!
V. enjoyable tour with a gd mix of food tasting (fruit,cheese,chocs) with wine.A nice balance for those who are not entirely crazy about wine.The lunch at Rochford was unexpectedly gd (i.e.gourmet).Damon,our guide,was v. pleasant and obliging,he made xtra effort to ensure we saw kangaroos otw back
Excellent guide with a greatl personality...it also helped that all 30 people on the tour were very pleasant as well. A perfect day with great wine, awesome chocolate and many gourmet delights. Highly recommended.
This was a really fun tour. Despite poor weather, Lachie the tour guide got us everywhere in good time and made sure no one got drenched and none of the activities were curtailed. There's a good mix of something for everyone on this tour.
Really great tour showcasing some great relaxing scenery. The wineries were generous with their samples, cheese was delicious. Our Bus Driver Bec was amazing, very friendly and made the tour really fun.
This was a fantastic tour from beginning to end!! We ended up having 2 guides - Bec and Rachel, who were not only incredibly knowledgeable but extremely entertaining. It was a day filled with varied tastings from fresh produce and cheese - buy the Le Jack you wont regret it - to wines and a delicious and hilarious chocolate tasting. The views are spectacular and this really was a wonderful day away from the city that is not just for tourists- Australians try it you will be happy you did!!
My Friend and I have enjoyed our first tour with Go West. The first stop at the fruit
farm was cold but we enjoyed the sharing of information about the different fruits in season and why
the weather affects the sweetness of the strawberries. Also enjoyed the tasting of fresh apple juice and fruits available.
Lunch at the winery was excellent and we had good experience tasting different wine. I specially enjoyed chocolate
made with different fillings and spices . Chris was very helpful and took us back to out destination safely
to our destination. Thank you. Will definitely come back again . Thank you.
Adam was an amazing guide with exceptional knowledge and good sense of humour. Perfect choice of music through the trip. The design of the itinerary itself was good for people that are not too big a drinker. The range of tasting offered in this trip is satisfying. Lunch was a lovely touch to the day as well, nicely cooked and generous portion. Highly recommended!
Wonderful day out in the valley. Lots to see, great wineries and lunch included. We have done a lot of winery tours, this is still one of my favs.
A very enjoyable day out. All the places we visited were fantastic, especially the cheese tasting. Our tour guide Adam was very knowledgeable and friendly, as were all the other guests on the bus. Highly recommend with tour.
Our tour was on the 30th June Driver Daniel was fantastic and kept us entertained all day. Pick-up from meeting point was on time and kept an excellent schedule for the remainder of the day. Had great music play list. All places we visited were fantastic wines great and lunch was beautiful. Highly recommend this tour to anyone. Thanks for a great day Bev W QLD
Was a great day out - a good range of wine and food experiences. The bus broke down on the way but it in no way detracted from the day thanks to our wonderful driver Jon.
