Really nice day, loved the cheese. The wine tasting could have been more extensive.
Scenery was breathtaking, food and wine wonderful and tour guide highly entertaining. Enjoyed every moment of this day trip!
Extremely enjoyable tour made all the better by our guide Tim. He was a great raconteur, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The local produce that we sampled through the day was tasty, fresh, varied and great quality. Highly recommend this tour.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day out with Driver/Guide Adrian. There was a variety of interesting visits and activities, in a very relaxed schedule. All of the 'tastings' and lunch were delicious. Highly recommended!
Unfortunately our trip was cancelled due to lack of numbers but the very friendly person offered the Yarra Valley tour which was a highlight of our stay in Melbourne. Our guide Grant was entertaining and knowledgeable and the group were good fun. The produce at Gateway was delicious, Cider, wine, chocolate all delicious, lunch at Rochford Estate lovely. Sun was shining a lovely day out in the country
We had a great day. Even though I came for the wine, tasting the amazing Cider was very delicious! Everything about this trip is good, I can only recommend it!
The tour was amazing. Our tour guide Simon Q was fantastic. There waz never a dull moment and it was simply a fun and food filled trip! Highly recommended!
My husband and I took this tour on New Year's Eve and it was a wonderful way to spend the day. The best part of our trip was our guide, Leon, who was not only knowledgable and interesting, but unbelievably kind as well.
We were picked up near our apartment and drove about an hour to our first stop at a goat farm for a cheese tasting. You could also order coffee and cheese to take home here there is a cooler in the van to keep it in throughout the day. It was a bit cool when we started out but the sun came out and warmed us considerably by the end of the day. I would recommend bringing both a light jacket and sunglasses/sunscreen.
From there, we visited 3 wineries, a chocolate shop where we had a delicious lunch, a cider room for a tasting, and a strawberry farm. The van is a smooth and comfortable ride and the stay at each location was a good amount of time, probably between 30 minutes and an hour each.
Leon was kind enough to drop us back in town in spite of the impending New Year's Eve traffic. Once back, we realized we had mistakenly grabbed his bottle of wine instead of our own. As we were leaving town the next day and staying at an apartment instead of a hotel, the trade off was going to be a bit tricky. Leon went above and beyond by meeting us at the restaurant we were having dinner at by bike due to road closures! with our bottle and insisting we keep his to enjoy as well.
The entire day was wonderful, but it is really Leon's kindness that stuck in our memories. Thank you, Leon!!

My spouse is an accredited wine enthusiast and we have taken close to 2 dozen of these tours world wide. Our guide on this tour was one of the most knowledgeable and very patient asking the many, many questions everyone asked. In the 2 instances I saw where he was uncertain, he texted a mate to verify his answer.His upbeat attitude and knowledgeable enthusiasm made what could have been a very long day feel fun and comfortable the whole time.
Lots of stops, never too long on the bus. Great tastings at 3 wineries, a cider brewery, a local cheese maker, a strawberry farm and lunch at a chocolate shop. Also some great photo ops at lookouts and beaches.
