We had a great time on this tour! It was just the two of us so it was essentially a private tour. Our guide was polite, knowledgeable and accommodating. The wineries we visited had some good wines. We enjoyed DeBortoli, especially the cheese platter that accompanied the wine tasting. Lunch at Domaine was wonderful! Lunch was a perfect two course light lunch with four glasses of wine to taste with your food. The stop at Yering was enjoyable too. Highly recommended!

Very interesting tour. Great tour guide. Beautiful countryside -- something worth doing and seeing.
The day was fantastic - great wines, great lunch and good company.
An excellent day. Only five people on the trip and we all got on very well. Our guide very knowledgeable and there was plenty of good wine to sample. Lunch in the Yarra Valley was first class.
We had a terrific time and would recommend this trip to anyone interested in wine culture or in seeing the countryside.
Our driver was great. The wines were great, the food was great. It really is the way to go!
Very good personal attention. Very well organized. Excellent reception at each vineyard. Easy communication with driver. Wines available to taste varied and good. Particular mention of the excellence of the reception at de Bertoli wines, our first port of call. We appreciated the excellence of the wines, and the knowledge of purchase in N.Z.
The small group was great, other people coming to visit the winery during our tour would help themselves to our cheese and crackers! Not the friendly reception we had anticipated.
OK but not worth the $180, the driver was suffering from a late night etc......The food at the restaurant was very ordinary
Departure was Tuesday, company called late Sunday night to change day. Driver was on time for pickup. Driving through the Yarra Valley was great. The first stop at De Bortoli was impressive but no departure time was given. Once the wine tasting at the bar was over we were rushed out without time to buy any cheese at their great cheese shop. There was no seating in the private tasting room nor any fruit as the brochure described. The stop at Yering Station winery was way too long. Lunch at Chandon was lovely though there was no time allowed to taste wines there after lunch as we were rushed off to Coldstream Hills. We were all looking for a cup of coffee after lunch but none was offered or available. Coldstream Hills was also impressive with good wine but we would have appreciated some fresh fruit or coffee. Coffee was to be had at the Yarra Valley Dairy. We arrived early so had to wait standing around while they prepared the tasting plates. Two dinner plates with some blobs of cheese were handed around without toothpicks or crackers.We did not get to sit down at the tables until we ordered coffee which we paid for since it was not included in our tour. At 180 per person I felt that morning or afternoon tea should have been supplied. The day was pleasant and two of the wineries were very good but the tour could have been a lot better. The last cheese tasting was woeful, having to pick up the soft cheese with fingers and no coffee, bottled water or fruit being included in a day that started at 9am and finished at 5pm. The fellow travelers were friendly and interesting but I don't think it was value for money.
