What a wonderful day! Paul is a fabulous guide, very knowledgeable and gracious. He planned the day well, there was never any rush at any of the venues. The Toyota mini-bus was spacious and comfortable, and for ease of hearing, it was equipped with a speaker system so that we could hear Paul very clearly as he drove. Paul advocated well for us at the wineries so that we were able to taste additional wines that weren't on the planned tasting menu. Lunch at Yarra Station was phenomenal, great choice. Will definitely book with Paul again!

mariaalejandrap514 November 2021

I am very happy with this experience. Paul is a very good guide and his knowledge and passion for wines shows. The whole experience is very good including very good quality wines and delicious food. I will definitely be back! Thank you very much for accommodating me and my husband at the last minute. Super recommended

stelstar_r July 2021

My friend and I had an amazing day! Best tour I've ever been on. We went to five different wineries in Yarra Valley. They all had great selection of wines. We also had a lovely lunch at Yering Station with a beautiful view. Paul taught us so much about wines on the tour and I think I can now appreciate the taste of a good wine. Thank you once again for a great experience.

Our tour on Saturday was so much fun - the whole day was perfect and made my birthday surprise for my husband everything I was hoping for! Rob is such a fabulous guide, so friendly and funny, genuinely a lot of fun to spend the day with. He took a lot of trouble to share his vast local knowledge about Melbourne and the Yarra Valley, even including fascinating elements about its history and cultural background. Our appreciation of his easy-going manner cannot be understated - from 8.40 a.m. on a Saturday for TEN HOURS, he managed unexpected traffic diversions and good-naturedly negotiated the increasing level of incapacitation of his inebriated clients. Before the tour, we had absolutely no idea about wine, or the region - we learned so much! The tour pace was excellent - busy and action-packed, but never any pressure to hurry. We had time to ask questions and never once felt rushed despite the full schedule. The venues we visited were beautiful, all the staff were friendly and engaging, and it is evident that a lot of consideration has been put into choosing different styles of wineries - from the larger well-known manufacturers to the elegant local producers and more modern, boutique-style venues. Even lunch was perfect! We really appreciated the level of communication during the planning stages - your confirmation text and email offered very clear instructions about the schedule and what to expect; in particular, the recommendation to arrange breakfast in advance and clarification of the ever-changing rules regarding the COVID-19 guidelines! We would absolutely recommend your tour to anyone interested in seeing wineries in the Yarra Valley.

I had a wonderful day with my 2 adult sons touring the Yarra Valley with our guide Paul. He had a wealth of knowledge that he enthusiastically shared with us on a very thoughtfully curated tour. We tasted at a selection of high end wineries but Paul also included a quirky establishment producing unusual wines which gave a nice balance to the day. Lunch at Yering Station was superb. I found Paul was very insightful in being able to adapt the tour to enhance the experience for all.

shelley794 May 2021

My husband and I opted for the full day wine tour with lunch package. It was an AMAZING experience. Although we had limited wine knowledge, Paul was determined in helping us along on our wine journey. He shared his wine knowledge with us in a way that was easy to digest and we greatly appreciated this. Lunch was also delightful at a beautiful venue. Highly recommended and well worth the money!

SamW10 May 2021

We had a wonderful day of wine tasting to celebrate our birthdays. Lunch was a highlight also. Paul went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves even surprising us with a bottle of wine as a birthday present at the end of the day. Highly recommend!

My Partner and I spent a lovely day at Yarra Valley enjoying the wonderful food and wine this region has to offer. The tour unlocked all these wonderful places for us as well as an appreciation of wine from the area. The scenery was spectacular this time of the year and we will no doubt come again! The five stars which got us to Vinetrekker is well deserved and we look forward to another one with Vinetrekker soon!

ChloezOnTrpAdvisor May 2021

Wow, where do I even begin! My partner and I had the best day at the Yarra Valley all thanks to our host Paul from Vinetrekker. It was a 100% high quality tour – small group size, top quality wineries with access to their premium wines at private tasting rooms, some tastings also included wine and cheese matching, and quality nibbles. Lunch at Yering Station was fine dining, it was delicious with a beautiful view to match. And to top it all off, unlike many other tours with set pick up points, Vinetrekker would pick you up and drop you off directly from/to your city hotel, which was super convenient for us. Our host Paul was very knowledgeable about the region and its wines. The entire day was very relaxed. Paul didn’t rush us at all, he made sure we enjoyed every moment at every winery. The whole experience was very personable, there were 7 others in the group, and we all bonded over amazing wines and great conversations. If you are looking for a high-quality wine tour experience, please go with Vinetrekker! You’ll not regret it! Highly recommended!

remkoj2021 April 2021

Excellent day Tour with our very knowledgeable tour guide Shane. A day full of great wines, matched with cheeses and lunch at Yering Station made it a day to remember for the eight of us!

matthewfH8352XS March 2021

Had an absolutely amazing time on our tour. Well organized and run, every little aspect of your day is thought out with client comfort in mind. Paul knows his wine and it makes the day all that much better. Great choice of wineries with a diverse range of wines to sample. Lunch was the icing on the cake. Customer service was impeccable. Would highly recommend.

annemB291YI February 2021

What a tour! Our guide, Paul, picked us up in Melbourne and whisked my husband and me (along with 6 other people) off to the Yarra Valley for a day of tastings and treats. Paul entertained us (Americans, Aussies and Europeans) with his knowledge of wine on the drive to our first vineyard that started off with great wine and a delicious cheese tasting. Paul knew his wine as well as the vineyard owners, getting us access to private rooms and boutique wineries along with a behind the scene tour of Domaine Chandon Winery. And the Yering Station lunch! Amazing food, amazing views paired with amazing wine! We still talk about this tour and would do it again with Paul as our guide in a heartbeat. Don’t miss out on the Yarra Valley Wine & Food tour with lunch at Yering Station!

z0ejadef February 2021

Full day experience visiting 5 amazing locations across the stunning Yarra Valley! Our amazing host Paul took us around and providing us with lots of knowledge of the area and it’s wine. He has an amazing relationship with the staff from the wineries which was fantastic to see! The wine and food was fantastic! I felt comfortable to try some new things (which is rare). We never felt rushed and the day just flowed effortlessly! 10/10 Can’t wait to explore new places with VineTrekker!

hamisht2021 February 2021

Great locations, great wine, and a really great host to show you around. Can’t recommend the tour enough!

jorgesI2561AP February 2021

Great wineries tour,good itinerary, safe and well organized, upper quality. Paul as a guide has a vast experience with the region, and the local wine industry as well as the great variety of wines. If you are doing a winery tour nothing better than with a guide that understand about wines.

G3223JXrobertog January 2021

Wow what an amazing experience me and my partner have been to do this tour for ages the day was spectacular we learnt so much about wine and all the staff at the vineyard were so helpful and friendly and the lunch was amazing and that coming from a chef and to top it off with an amazing view. Our tour guide Paul he was just absolutely amazing when staff at the vineyard was busy he was giving us so much knowledge on the wines put so much effort into his job you can tell he loves what he does looking forward to booking your with vinetrekker in the future

Tina S January 2021

Had an incredible Yarra Valley food & wine tour today with Paul at Vinetrekker. The tour itself was absolutely premium, with the best selection of wines, snacks along the way and a sensational lunch. Paul was a superstar from star to finish with fantastic communication and knowledge on all things wine and yarra valley. The wineries selected were exceptional and none that I'd visited before, and the lunch options at Yering station were superb. Paul recommended the kangaroo and after some initial reluctance, I said I'd have it as well - and im so glad I did. It was a highlight of the experience and cooked to perfection. Top tip: support local businesses and book directly on the vinetrekker website! Even though it rained in the morning, it didn't interfere with our tour in the slightest as it was mostly indoors. So rain or shine, you can visit any time of the year :) Thank you Paul for such a wonderful day out!! As a born and raised melbournian it was such a new and lovely experience.

andrewgrey2020 January 2021

Thank you VineTrekker and Stephen for such a wonderful day out! We had a beautiful tour of the Yarra Valley and tried some absolutely amazing wines. With each place we went to the wines kept getting better and better. Stephen was so knowledgeable about wines and very experienced in Yarra Valley. Thank you for a wonderful day!

Thatonegirl80 December 2020

Recently booked a private tour with friends to celebrate getting out of Melbourne lockdown. Stephen was our guide for the day. We visited 5 wineries that varied from the well known to hidden gems. Stephen also arranged for us to try some special wines that are usually not on offer to most. Our group had an amazing time and will definitely use them again in 2021. Thank you!

dianerK7231AP November 2020

Great experience. Our guide Paul was really passionate, knowledgeable and always made us feel really comfortable. We learned so much from him in just a few hours. You could tell that Paul is a kind and generous soul and has acquired long term relationship and connections with the people at the Yarra Valley, which made the experience even more special. The food at Yering station was exquisite and we had the opportunity to try a wide range of delicious wines, we couldn't have left happier. We would not change anything about this tour and will definitely come back with friends.

Stewart M May 2020

Our extremely knowledgeable and entertaining guide, Shane, gave my wife and myself a perfect day of great food and wine tasting just before everything shut down and we had to race back to the UK. It is a day we will recall with much pleasure through our lock-down.

rrpinn March 2020

Our guide Shane was phenominal in his location selections, his insight on what to expect at each winery, his knowledge of the region and history behind each winery. There was no doubt he knew his wines, he had a great sense of humor, and he was well received at each location as was our group. The scenery was breathtaking and the weather was perfect. An unexpected treat was seeing Kangaroos in a pasture during the morning hours just before the first winery. All of the foods and cheeses we tasted were on par with he exceptional wines. The tour turned out to be at the top of our "what did you like best about Australia" list. Sadly our Australia trip was cut short because of the Virus, and we had to return to the US way too soon, but we thoroughly enjoyed the 10 days we had in Australia starting with Melbourne, and Yarra Valley and Shane.

allowaybill March 2020

From Rob picking us up we had an amazing day.Rob was friendly, considerate and extremely informative. The vineyards themselves were extremely welcoming and set in amazing countryside. They didn’t rush the tours and answered many questions that day. The wine we bought there didn’t last too long once we got back to the hotel but was delicious. Rob’s efforts of going off track to find a wild Kangaroo was appreciated .

DianeAntonacci March 2020

The wineries our driver took us to were all very nice and had a good variety of fine wines. Our driver was very knowledgeable about the wineries and the different types of wine we tasted.
