Combined Wine and Beer Tour:
These two senior citizens felt like teenagers buzzing along in a classic Chevy convertible. The valley is is a scenic, peaceful drive, especially with the top down on the Chevy. We visited three wineries and a brewery and had a delicious lunch board at one of the wineries. Our driver/guide, Emma, was an accommodating, professional, and knowledgeable person and it was a joy to spend the day with her. This tour is highly recommended. The only negative very minor was they did not pickup/drop-off at the South Wharf Hilton.
Take this tour!
A completely wonderful day. Our driver/guide Emma made it a really special day. She is a lovely lady. These two seniors felt young again, buzzing around in a classical Chevy convertible! We visited 3 wineries and 1 brewery. And... She took us to a cheese factory. The luncheon was light and exquisite. We were disappointed that were not picked up nor dropped at the Hilton South Wharf.
excellent tour and driver
This was the best day. It started off being a very windy trip there but the Driver was wonderful even went out of his way taking us to The Chocolaterie and ice creamery for something different. The drive home was The Best has he had some good ol' rock n roll music so we sang all the way home. Don't forget that was after a day of tasting beer and wine!
The only way to go on a wine tour. Fantastic car, lovely driver, awesome day out. An absolutely MUST when you are in Yarra Valley.
This tour was amazing!
relaxed-customised to what we wanted to do, lovely company, and some beautiful scenery-was a very good tonic at a time when trip was not going well.
Great trip, great tour guide, great wine...
Awesome fun! The only way to sightsee and enjoy the wineries at your leisure! Emma was a fabulous guide and superb driver for what was a spectacular day. I did this as a birthday surprise and was not disappointed!
Had a great day out highly recommend
