John, our guide, was really friendly. The group size was small due to COVID-19, so it was nice and intimate. Wasn't too interested in the beer tasting, but everything else was good. Could have added another winery since we had some extra time. Would recommend to swap out the beer tasting with 1-2 other wineries. Overall, good experience!

Abbey W February 2020

Leon was our guide. He was absolutely lovely and so helpful. He got a whole group of strangers bonding over a fun game of bocce baall. I asked him about what wines we'd be tasting at each venue and he called ahead to make sure I could try a specific variety. In addition to wine, we tried chocolates, cider and fresh local produce. Despite the rainy day, me and my friends had such a fun time. Highly recommend for anyone with a mild to above-average interest in wine.

John_H February 2020

Really good tour. Could not fault anything. Driver Tim G turned up on time, gave commentary about where going and what to expect

Hellzer February 2020

Great hosts, great combo of chocolate factory, strawberry farm, brewery and two wineries with lunch in the middle! A well planned and thought out day.

jmggallagher January 2020

the Yarra Valley Wine tour was well organised and great to have so many different experiences like the farm store and craft beer as well as the chocolates and wines . This was a our first trip to the Yarra Valley and we were very impressed. Our tour driver Peter was exceptional with his knowledge and personality and certainly made the day most enjoyable.

Tulasi_R January 2020

A great mix of wine tasting, delicious lunch and beautiful scenery. The last stop at Moet and Chandon was the icing ( bubbles) on the cake!. Our guide was very informative and friendly. Highly recommend this tour.

toddnpaulas November 2019

Christina B October 2019

Had a lovely trip visiting winery’s and chocolate factory , tasting cider and beer as well as cheese . Awesome tour guide as well giving a running commentary as we traveled great day

Jon S September 2019

A really good full day trip. Starting off at a local market garden which grew, made and sold a really wide range of delicious things to eat and drink, followed by a stop at a chocolate factory. After that we went to a brewery and tried their beers and ciders before going to the first of three vineyards where we had lunch and sampled some great wines. Our driver/guide Peter was incredibly knowledgeable, and made sure that he gave personal attention to everyone on the tour - this made it a really good, relaxed day out. Definitely recommended if you like good food, good beer and wine and good company.

Alexandra_C September 2019

Really enjoyed the day. Liked how there was more of a variety with the tour rather than 5 wine tastings. Each place had their own story which I always find the most interesting. Tour guide was really great as well. Threw in some fun facts, played some really great music, and gave some helpful tips when going into each of the locations. My two pieces of feedback would be to change up the last winery location (Hanrahan) not the most exciting and not a great a variety of wines to choose from. Lastly including the chocolate tasting as part of cost (it's only $3).

Zoé I August 2019

During this tour, we had the chance to taste the real Aussie! Local wine, cider and chocolate :) The landscapes are also amazing with mountains ranges and vineyards The guide was perfect, so I recommand this tour to anybody!

ramandraisins July 2019

Tour packed with interesting visits from start till end. Guide Fraser was very entertaining and lively.

Sarah M July 2019

Great day out with my mum in the Yarra Valley. We tried the local produce and some home make liquors. The chocolate factory was amazing. Our tour guide Fraser was really good and he knew a lot about all the places we went too

Stumpayy June 2019

This tour is fantastic, Allan the guide is absolutely awesome very friendly and engaging with his customers. The wineries/breweries were amazing, this tour has to be the best from Melbourne. The included lunch is crazy good i can't believe the tour with all this included was so cheap. i wouldn't go past this one if i were you.

Rachel W June 2019

Myself and a few friends went on this tour and were not disappointed. Hiro was our driver and he was lovely and knowledgable, even fit in an extra wine tasting for us at the end of the day. Would 100% recommend, some beautiful locations in the Yarra Valley.

elizabethmA9919PA June 2019

We were attracted to this tour because it was more than just wine tasting. The stops were all long enough but not too long and all were informative. While clearly the hosts were interested in making sales, it was not pushy in any way. Simon, our guide, did not talk all the time which we appreciated. Lovely scenery and good food and drink.

chasethesuncaro June 2019

Was a great day with lots of variety and beautiful views. Loved the first stop at Gateway with the capsicums and sausage rolls.... the capsicum relish was delicious too. Lunch was yum but thought a drink was included too. Great day with plenty of time at each place - not rushed at all. Glenn was our guide and he provided good information about each place and had great banter too :)

go_tananas November 2018

I absolutely recommend this tour - beautiful location, worth the drive away from the city! The wine was wonderful and all locations unique. The guide was friendly and helpful. Rating 4 stars because we spent far too long at the chocolate location (over an hour), but there was nothing planned there like there were at the other locations (no guide telling us about the place for example).

Eraine R March 2018

Very enjoyable day in the Yarra Valley. Excellent tour guide John. Great range of places visited. Highly recommended.

Tristan R March 2018

A great day out in the Yarra Valley led by the friendly and knowledgeable Simon Q. My partner and I took this tour as we were interested in more than just wine and it did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to sample not only some great wines but also ciders, beers, chocolate and strawberries which all were very tasty, and learn about the area. The only thing I could complain about was having to wake up so early but without doing so we wouldn't have had time to enjoy the valley! Would recommend.

Donald_P February 2018

Loved this tour and would recommend to anyone who enjoys great wine, spirits, beer, and gourmet food. Started off by visiting a lovely green house that grew capsicums peppers and strawberries. After touring the greenhouses, we sampled a lovely platter of fresh strawberries, local cheese, pepper jellies amd spreads, plus strawberry Port, liquer, and cream. Fantastic! Next stop was a Chocolate and Ice Ceam shop. Huge bowls of chocolate greeted us and the products available to purchase was vast. From there we went to a lovely winery situated on top of a hill with a lovely view of the vineyards below. To our great delight there were wild kangaroos in the fields and all of us loved to watch them bound about while we sampled some fine wine. Also had our lunch here with scrumptious jumbo porcini tortellini or wood fired thin crust pizza. Delicious! Our next stop was Napoleon Brewery with ice cold cider and superb cold beers. After that another lovely vineyard in the hills. What a wonderful day and would highly recommend to anyone.

Haresh D February 2018

Everyone who visits Melbourne has to take this tour. The scenery is beautiful and experience unforgettable.

Paul B November 2017

Very enjoyable, laid back tour. Excellent tastings and a really good lunch with Adrian, the guide, excellent.
