This is the 4th booking of this tour. The last one was booked for my wife and she toughly enjoyed the experience again.
Some of the wineries chosen for her tour were different from her last one but these new wineries were first class.
I will be once again be recommending this tour to all of our friends and when in Melbourne again will seriously consider another day out on this tour.
Well done and keep up the good standard.
This was a really nice tour. It turned out that there were only four of us and this, combined with the great tour guide and the well planned itinerary, proved to a perfect combination for a very enjoyable day. All the tastings were at well-known wineries and the first in particular stands out. De Bertolli winery provided us with a tasting of different cheeses along with the wines and this made a huge difference to the experience. It would be good if others would follow suit as it meant that our palates were kept fresh between wines. Would heartily recommend this tour..
This was agreat way to experience the Yarra Valley. Bill was an excellent guide with good knowledge and a very pleasant and friendly. We tasted some superb wines and the lunch was great. the places we went to were all individual and all beautiful. We can't recommend this highly enough.
Absolutely amazing. By far and away the best wine tour I have ever been on. I would highly recommend it.
The best wine tour we have done in the yarra valley . great food at Domaine Chandon. and great wines at Coldstream Hills. Highly recommend this tour . Guide was terrific too.
Great introduction and overview of the Yarra Valley and it's vineyards.
Very friendly, informative driver-tour guide who made everyone feel welcome and enjoy the experience.
Good selection of wineries with a huge range of great wines.
Lunch at Chandon was fabulous.
I would highly recommend this tour ... great value for money and an excellent experience. The small group meant you didn't have to wait for your glass to be filled and you were looked after well. A good mix of wineries and experiences. Lunch was amazing!!
A really enjoyable day. The guide was great and the people at the wineries had a fun and relaxed approach to the wine. Also got to try to some great cheeses.
Perfect day! The quality of the vineyards selected is excellent. In addition it felt almost like a private tour; we highly recommend!
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, and the beautiful Yarra Valley. It was very leisurely, the wine stops were great, and there wasn't any pressure to buy, buy buy.
The lunch at Chandon Winery was really, really good!
We had a great time and met some really fun people while on this tour. The food and wine stops were excellent.
Great day. Picked up at cruise ship and returned to ship late afternoon. A very good variety of wineries and scenery and a stop at a very nice country store. An excellent choice of different wineries in the region.
Prompt hotel pick up. Driver Fiona (?) pleasant/non-intrusive/good local knowledge with spot-on recommendations and suggestions. 4 wineries visited were perfect intro to Yarra. Chocolate "shop" stop and dairy were welcome breaks from wine/cheese tasting. Thoroughly enjoyed day.
Really great small tour! It was only us and one other couple, but even if the van had been full it would have been a great day. The amount of wine and food was plenty! Lunch at Chandon was not extraordinary, but good (and a nice setting, fine considering all the other cheese/food etc.).
Small group experience with a friendly, knowledgeable guide. The wineries visited were excellent, with a broad variety of wines to taste. Many great cheeses and wines and really good company on this trip made it really worthwhile. I would gladly repeat it on a future trip to Melbourne.
Superb day. I have been on wine tours in most Australian cities and this is up there with the best. Brilliant winery choices (De Bortoli's Black Noble!), good food, knowledgeable guide - who could want for more!
We had a lovely day out with Epicurean tours. We visited a variety of wineries in the Yarra Valley as well as the Yarra Valley Dairy for afternoon tea. All food and tasting was included and our guide, Fiona went the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Nothing was too much trouble.
Whow !!! want an experience in one day, being pampered from pickup to dropoff .After our last experience on a 42 seat coach..never again.This tour was the best we have ever been on ..great company..exceptional chauffer...the only way to see the world is by travelling in small groups....Thanks to you Fiona we will be calling you again .
Excellant day - Fiona was most imformative and patient with us - we had a really relaxed day - and we must have made a great impression on Fiona as well because she spotted us walking in the City the next morning and tooted her horn at us :-)
Fiona was the best and the wineries were excellent. The De Bartoli stop included cheeses paired with the wines
This was a very exciting tour and enjoyed every drop of it, only 8 people in our group. Both the driver/guide and people at the wineries were very knowledgeable. When crowded our guide arranged for a quiet spot for mostly peaceful stating. Lunch at Domaine Chandon was very good. I'm glad I chose this over the tasting tour with a bus load of people.

Great value and a trip well worth doing !! . Private tour bus was very comfortable - even though requested seating ( due to car sickness) was not fulfilled.
De Bortoli tasting was the best!!! private room and an excellent somelier who gave us all the attention we paid for in the extra $$$ for his trip. Some wineries left us "cold"- treated us like the rest of the "crowd"and we definitley don't like room temp whites - regardless of the "education" they were giving us. Domain Chandon PERFECT for lunch. Didn't really need the other 2 wineries after this feast . A cup of coffee with lunch is sadly missing and really would be a great addition. The tour guide could also learn a thing or two about including the whole group in lunch time conversations and not separating couples off for individualised tastings at post lunch wineries. Very poor form. That said we had a wonderful day and would recommend to everyone.
My husband and I booked on this trip for his birthday. We had a fabulous day with only four people on our tour. Fiona a tour guide was fabulous and informative. I would recommed this tour to anyone for a great day out.
