This was a very good tour, I had limited knowledge of wine but john the guide soon helped with that. He was very knowledgeable and friendly and there was plenty of tastings. Lunch was very good and was needed after all those tastings. Great to get out of the city and see some countryside and the large mini bus was comfortable.
A great day out and, unlike similar tours I have done,, plenty of wine to drink. Our guide John has forgotten more than I will ever know about wine and gave us a great entertaining day.
My partner and I really enjoyed this tour. Lunch was great. We visited two larger wineries, one family owned winery as well as Chandon. Tour was good value and our guide/driver was great! :)
The guide we had was excellent. He thought us how to appreciate and value in our own mind various wines we were offered to taste. Very educational and helpful for future purchases of wines.
This was a fantastic wine tour, the wineries selected were all top end, it was a small group tour, and there were plenty of wines to taste throughout the day. Our driver spud was exceptional as he had an amazing knowledge of not only the wines but the varieties and how they were made so the education process was fantastic as well. The lunch was very good and very well executed, certainly making this wine tour value for money. I would definitely recommend this tour it wont disappoint.
Had a great time and loved all the places. My favourite was the Yerling Farm. The meal was fantastic and James was a great tour guide.
I wouldn't have asked for a better tour guide than Derek (or was it Dirk?). He is informative, friendly and very approachable. The content of the tour is very satisfying and let's just say it's one of the best experiences in Melbourne for me.
Hello a really great,tour. I enjoyed it all and would recommend it to everyonen
My trip was enjoyable , knowledgeable , lifely n small attendance was controllable . Highly recommended to my Canadian fellows n will try other tours next year same month
Excellent! Great tour guide with lot of knowledge. Everything was well organized. Very nice wine presentation.
We had such a great time on this tour - the tour guide Nick was exceptional - he knew his wines and the district really well, we loved his dry sense of humour and he made the trip thoroughly enjoyable. The vineyards were lovely, our favourite was Yerring Station - would be great to have a tour that had lunch there too. Thanks very much Kurt and Justine (NZ)
Great day to meet new found friends from all over the world and share the tastes and sights of the the Yarra Valley. The tour guide was knowledgeable and the tastings generous. Lunch was delicious.
Great tour made even better buy our driver/tour guide who had a great knowledge of wine and the Yarra Valley.
our guide was friendly, informative and great sense of humour, we did this tour last year and decided to bring friends with us this year, we all really enjoyed the day, and would really recomend it.
Some excellent wines, and an interesting sampling of various wineries. We particularly liked the one quite small winery on the tour -- would like to see more of that type on the list. The guide was quite knowledgeable and shared local wisdom readily.
We had a really good time on this trip , we knew nothing about wine and Nick taught us a lot we now have a new found passion ! Plenty of laughs and great value. Very highly recommmend.
John Murphy our driver and guide was fantastic. We are from Melb and would normally drive ourselves to the wineries. This was a great way to visit without worrying about how many tastings we had. We even learnt some new information about our city!
My wife and I really enjoyed our day in the Yarra Valley. I thought the wine tour was excellent value when considering the substantial lunch and the amount of wine consumed. Nice group of people and Nick was a very informative and entertaining guide.
Definitely worth doing if you're not a local. You get transfers, learn lots and taste PLENTY OF WINE, have lunch (order the steak if you're hungry and NOT the ravioli) and meet great people. There was nothing about this tour I disliked.
Fantastic tour with good knowledgable tour guide. You get to try lots of wines and lunch was lovely too. Would recommend.
A great experience that was most definitely the highlight of our trip to Melbourne. Not only didi we learn about tasting wine but sampled a wide scope of quality wines, far beyond the range at your local bottle shop. Would recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys wine and beautiful scenery.
Fantastic trip, beautiful scenery and great wine. Our guide, James, was knowledgable and entertaining.
Two best friends from Melbourne went on this tour to celebrate the new year and it was brilliant! We live only a fairly short distance from the Yarra Valley and could take ourselves, but then you'd need a driver (and who wants to do that?!) and you wouldn't get the fantastic inclusions like the delicious lunch, the discounts and the detailed explanations/instructions from our knowledgeable and funny guide! It was well worth every penny - whether you're from overseas, interstate, or even - like us - from Melbourne!
