It was a wonderful day all round. The hotel pick up went without a hitch and the driver, Adrian, kept us entertained with his comprehensive knowledge of the history of the area and all the wineries. His soothing voice unfortunately put all the Asian tourists to sleep! but the rest of us enjoyed it. The puffing billy ride was a wonderful view again to the past. Our lunch at Rochford Winery was excellent, along with the wine tasting. Would recommend this trip.

Excelent day out made even better by our driver named Will who was very knowledgable and humerous in the very enlightening cometary that he delivered during the trip. Lunch in the Winery was very good and presentation was to a very high standard. Overall management and arrangements for the day were exemplary. A day well worth doing.

Fantastic scenery, wineries,and steam train (Puffing Billy). The whole tour, including lunch was not expensive. Lunch could have been better, however, it was still pretty good.
The driver was very knowledgeable and was a nice guy and very funny. We had a fun day.
The coach picked us up quite close to our hotel, but getting back to hotel in peak time traffic was slow.

Well organised and highly enjoyable. Roger, our tour guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the places we visited and made for a pleasant, relaxing day. Good pace and time to enjoy the sights. Loved Puffing Billy - took me back to my childhood when I last visited with my family. Great day!

Everthing was well organised couldn't fault it, the only hiccup was getting on the coach to begin with, needs a bit more thought into that.

We loved the whole day. Colin our coach driver was really friendly and informative. Brought some beautiful wines, which didn't make it back home!
Well worth it, so glad we booked online too.
5 stars all the way, thanks for a wonderful day.

Very enjoyable and well organised tour mostly due to our great guide Colin. Had plenty of time to spend in each winery and saw great scenery on the way.Great lunch at the ferguson winery too! Colin was very informative and organised so the trip ran smoothly and he even arranged for us to be dropped off at the victoria markets instead of our hotel!

This was a great trip. Our driver kept us entertained with the history of the region including the suburbs of Melbourne as we went through them. Morning tea was at a lovely little tea rooms set in natural bush and the highlight of this stop was the parrots that we could feed and 'get up close to'. Puffing Billy was a terrific way to see some of the bush area and just long enough. Lunch at the Fergusson Winery was fantastic. A spit roat of beef with all the trimmings. The wine tour followed and we were not dissappointed with any of the following two. The last was a tour and some of the history of the winery at Chandon and was well worth the trip. The staff were friendly and pleasant at all of the places that we visited on this trip and our driver was fabulous. I would recommend this trip to anyone.
