It was a wonderful experience, our driver was attentive and was able to give us a lot of local knowledge. Lunch was a dream, beautiful food, location and people and of course perfect weather added to the occasion. The wineries were great and we were treated with special attention. It was a great day.

excellent tour. Took us th large famous (but not necessarily good) wineries as well as very niche but makes amazingly good wine wineries. Our guy knew what he was talking about and really knew the people, their difficulties and the history behind Yarra Valley and it made our trip special!

We had a fabulous day. Bill our guide with Epicurean Food and Wind Tours was a very nice man and had some great tales to tell. He explained a lot about the countryside and the wineries. All the wines we tasted were delicious and the lunch at Tokar Estate was one of the nicest meals were heave eaten. It was a good time of the year to go as the leaves on the vines were golden and we were blessed with a lovely sunny day.

The wine tour was such a fun excursion! Four delightful wineries were featured, as well as a brewery for our last stop of the day. Having only 8 passengers makes this tour much more intimate. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely recommend for solo travelers, couples, and small groups.

We had a fabulous day with Bill. He was informed, relaxed and a good spirit.

We'd highly recommend this tour, and especially Bill.

Thanks for a great day.

This tour was one of the best we had on the trip. Our guide, Bill, was very knowledgable and the cheese pairing, lunch and tastings were very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to tour the Yarra Valley. We appreciated all of the history/tid bits of the area during the tour. Our guide made a conscious effort not to talk about the wine during the tastings and allowed the vineyard staff to do the talking.
