Mark was a really great guide for the Yarra Valley wineries. Very entertaining and very accommodating. He even circled back to one of the earliest wineries we visited so that we could make a purchase there after sampling wine at 3 other places. Although it was too cool to put the top down, enjoyed riding in his vintage car. Highly recommend including this in your Melbourne experience.
These two senior citizens felt like teenagers buzzing along in a classic Chevy convertible. The valley is is a scenic, peaceful drive, especially with the top down on the Chevy. We visited three wineries and a brewery and had a delicious lunch board at one of the wineries. Our driver/guide, Emma, was an accommodating, professional, and knowledgeable person and it was a joy to spend the day with her. This tour is highly recommended. The only negative very minor was they did not pickup/drop-off at the South Wharf Hilton.
Take this tour!
A completely wonderful day. Our driver/guide Emma made it a really special day. She is a lovely lady. These two seniors felt young again, buzzing around in a classical Chevy convertible! We visited 3 wineries and 1 brewery. And... She took us to a cheese factory. The luncheon was light and exquisite. We were disappointed that were not picked up nor dropped at the Hilton South Wharf.
This was the best day. It started off being a very windy trip there but the Driver was wonderful even went out of his way taking us to The Chocolaterie and ice creamery for something different. The drive home was The Best has he had some good ol' rock n roll music so we sang all the way home. Don't forget that was after a day of tasting beer and wine!
The only way to go on a wine tour. Fantastic car, lovely driver, awesome day out. An absolutely MUST when you are in Yarra Valley.
relaxed-customised to what we wanted to do, lovely company, and some beautiful scenery-was a very good tonic at a time when trip was not going well.
Awesome fun! The only way to sightsee and enjoy the wineries at your leisure! Emma was a fabulous guide and superb driver for what was a spectacular day. I did this as a birthday surprise and was not disappointed!
AAA+++ Absolutely fantastic tour, Mark was a great host, very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to sit back, enjoy and indulge in the wineries of the Yarra Valley. Great mix of commercial and boutique wineries, lovely lunch, a truly enjoyable experience, highlight of our trip to Melbourne. AAA+++
Excellent day out! Great wine, lovely lunch and friendly, helpful driver. Car made us feel like film stars! :-D
Well what can I say...Mark our guide, has to be one of the most interesting people I have ever met. A thoroughly enjoyable day.
My only reservation was I thought the tastings were all included especially paying just over $800 for the two of us but it was an all day tour!
Great day out, awesome old car and some wonderful wines and wineries.
The tour is definitely worth doing, but we had at the end an incident with Emma, the guide, in the wedsite said it strated at 9 am and she picked us up at 10am (no problema if she would return us an hour later to the hotel). But suddenly she was in a hurry and told us "well, do not enjoy too much and hurry!"
Note from Viator: This tour departs at 10am and returns at 4:30pm. This is the information that is provided on Viator.
The only good thing I have to say is that the driver Mark was really nice.
The car is old broken down, dirty and smelly.
When I complained to Viator they got the drivers wife to call me and she abused me.
I complained again to Viator and they did not fix the issue at all and fobbed us off.
I will never use Viator again as I only work with globally recognised companies that take their clients seriously!
