This tour was incredible! Our Tour Guide John certainly made the trip, but I would say this tour is a must do from Melbourne. We got to take a beautiful ride out of the city and into the Yarra Valley - seeing the countryside, Yarra River, and mountains all at once. Then boy are you in a treat when you visit four vineyards and essentially get to taste upwards of 40 wines if you do it right. John and all of the local guides at each of the vineyards were so helpful - making recommendations about the wines and explaining their history and how they're made. I honestly can't say enough incredible things about this trip. Everyone should reserve it!
Fantastic day out, can highly recommend, the 4 wineries are very interesting as was the driver John who made the day a real learning experience, with his amazing knowledge of the Yarra Valley, Wines in general and Victoria. Really fun day had by all. My only suggestion for improvement would be a little more food along the way, a few more biscuits or some bread would help.
Great way to spend a day. Definitely value for money. Our tour guide, Nick, was a great guy. The scenery was epic!
Tour guide was lovely all the wineries were great and the lunch was really good.
We recently enjoyed a great day tour of the Yarra Valley with Australian Wine Tour Company. The online booking process was easy and pick-up location very accessible to our hotel. Our driver Brett, was very friendly, welcoming and entertaining. He has great knowledge of the city , the region, wineries and wine making processes, and this was evident throughout the day tour. The tour bus was full, including many international visitors, and Brett made everyone feel comfortable and welcome, while keeping the group on schedule for the whole day. We tasted some great wines, enjoyed lunch in a very pleasant and picturesque setting and purchased some bottles to bring home and enjoy later.
We highly recommend this tour and our guide Brett
We had a great tour in the yarra vineyards. Peter, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and it was a quick and easy pickup from Melbourne town centre. We visited 4 vineyards from the boutique to Chandon , which gave us a good mix.
Very fun! Our guide 'T' was a delight to have as our driver. The wines were of great quality. Good road trip to places I wouldn't otherwise have visited.
The tour was great. Great price, great tour guide, great scenary. We'll definitely do it again.
Great day out. The tour guide/minibus driver was brilliant. The scenery spectacular. The wineries are much closer to Melbourne than you anticipate. All in all worth the money and lunch was lovely.
The tour was great value for the money. The guide Tanina was bubbly, fun and informative. The group was small, which makes for a better experience. The wineries were gorgeous, the wines delicious and the scenery charming and I learned something new about wine tasting. Highly recommended.
Very pleasantly surprised...the tour guide was fun, and knowledgeable. She also helped me purchase wine after I had too much. The only thing I was not overly impressed with was the food, it was very ok. Would definitely recommend this wine tour.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide/driver John (aka Spud) was great, with tremendous knowledge and good humour. What was really great about this trip was that the 4 estates visited were well spaced out, and that provided adequate time for us to get acquainted with the surroundings, and the wine itself. You really do get a great experience, very informative and great for anyone who wants to see the great valleys, experience some wine, and also visit some "not so known" estates in the Valley. I'd go on this one again!
Excellent day out. Wineries were all interesting - nice lunch and our guide Tanina was fabulous. Highly recommended
We had a fabulous day, visiting many wineries and at one had the most magnificent lunch, when next in Melbourne l will definitely take the tour again and have recommended it to many of my friends
Thoroughly enjoyed the day - lunch was excellent - great way to taste Aussie wines
