The rotten weather could not spoil our day out here. We loved feeding the wild parrots at our morning coffee stop. The little train was great and went through lovely temperate rain forest. We enjoyed our wine tasting, and eded up at a chocolate factory. Very enjoyable

We had an excellent day with this tour. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative and made us feel very welcome to Melbourne and it was a very memorable day. The way that we were introduced to the wineries from the bigger one to the small family one was a very clever way of showing us the production of wine in the Yarra Valley and how different they all taste. The Puffing Billy Steam train was a wonderful experience. Every experience on the day was done with utmost professionalism and very informative. Visiting the park and seeing the birds and feeding them, was an incredible experience. It was also lovely to be able to sit in the lovely cafe and have our tea and lamington in a relaxed atmosphere with incredible views, rather than the other tour group where they just had a table set up with some lamingtons in a packet and tea in a polystyrene cup outside. Overall we highly recommend this tour if you want excellent organisation and comfortable surroundings/travel combined with wonderful experiences. Thank you!

This was a great tour. Everything went to plan, although the start time was later than advised.

BEAUTIFUL countryside, fantastic tour guide, stupid jerks throwing debris from an overpass that hit the bus' windshield. Nonetheless, a marvelous day in the Melbourne wine country!

A fantastic day! The ride on the Puffing Billy steam train was a lot of fun and the visit to the wineries was relaxing. Lunch was delicious. Our bus driver/guide, Adrian, was extremely helpful and shared a wealth of knowledge about the areas we visited.

A nice trip to see a historic train, plus you get out into the country away from the city of Melbourne. We visited three wineries, each of different sizes. At one we had an optional lunch, which was very good.The train ride was so nice I would like to have had a longer one!

Brilliant day - weather and experience wise. The driver was extremely patient with the inevitable strangler couple and certainly made my day by providing a crepe bandage after I sprained my ankle before even getting onto the bus to the starting point!! The lunch was certainly one of the nicest we experienced over our time in Melbourne. Great choice of vineyards to visit. And the ice cream at the chocolate factory?? YUM!!!

This was a really fun tour. Guide Adrian really is knowledgeable about the areas we visited and he capably shared that with us. The steam train was fun. Adrian really encouraged everyone on the tour to get to know each other, By the end everyone was having a friendly time. I'm sure the good wines tasted at the three impressive wineries didn't dampen the atmosphere. Recommend this tour and Adrian.

I liked the guide EDWARD so much. He was kind all the time, and he knew so many things that I have learned a lot of things about wine and Melbourne from him. It was such a nice journey. Great.

Only one word to describe it - amazing! Made possible by Joe! All-rounder driver, tour guide and planner. He is very nice, friendly and knowledgable. He also went through the extra mile to send most of us home! And we got a bonus pleasant surprise from Joe, he took us to Yarra Valley new Chocolaterie which was not included in our itinerary as there was still ample time for my tour group to do so. Overall, this tour is fantastic! I did not regret my decision to take this tour with Viator. Thanks Viator and Joe! :

It was one of the best tours I have ever had. The bus was clean and comfortable. Our tour guide/driver Steve was really friendly and knowledgable. He was telling us all about the history, city, surroundings and tips for being in Melbourne. He went over and beyond what he needs to do. Great first time experience with viator. I would definitely book more tours from here as I go around the world.

Really would recommend this tour. Had an interesting running commentary from the driver who had a good sense of humour. Puffing Billy is a must do. Had a great lunch at Rochford Winery and enjoyed sampling the local wines.

big tour bus group! driver Richard was one with jokes. lovely guy. it starts out strange after you're picked up from your hotel you're dropped off at another location where you wait for your bus alongside many other tour groups, so don't get on the wrong bus! the highlight was the train ride, a must-do! it was just one stop but a good ride nonetheless. it rained a little melbourne and it's weird weather huh, but dampened no one! we had 3 wineries, and the last stop might have been the best stop where we bought a 6pack of the pink lady apple cyder. delish! lunch was.. hmm.. well i had the beef cheek and it was really strong smell, so unless you like that, it may not be a great choice. but the menu may change anyway.

part of our bus stopped at the wild life place while the rest of us went on with the wines. so i guess there was that option too :P
