Amazing day! The wines, cheeses, and lunch were delicious, and the views were beautiful. The small group was great - only a few of us on this particular tour and we all, including the tour guide, got along well. We chatted, ate, drank, and laughed our way through the day. Perfect!
My wife and I took the Yarra Valley Food and Wine Small Group Tour on November 9 and were met by our guide Nikki at our hotel.
Nikki drove us out of Melbourne to the Yarra Valley providing an explanation of sights we saw along the way. The group of 5 stopped at 5 or 6 wineries where we tasted samples of multiple wines produced at each and had the opportunity to buy any wines we liked. In the early afternoon, we had a very nice lunch served at one of the wineries. The experience was wonderful and made all the better by Nikki.
We would highly recommend this experience.
A terrific experience with a lot of tasting at 5 great wineries. Bill was a great guide. I would highly recommend this tour.
Was a great day out with a very friendly and knowledgable guide.
We were able to meet some of the winemakers and the hospitality and generosity at all the wineries was fantastic.
Excellent lunch as well!!
Great fun Good Tour operator and relaxed group of peoiple
It was a perfect day with our friendly driver and the very nice choice of locations.
Best tour we took. Fabulous wineries and Bill our driver was the best. Lunch at Tokar was wonderful. Nice to meet the owners of small wineries and hear their experiences. Only 6 on tour so had a very personal experience. Highly recommend. Could not have been better.
Great trip, excellent experience at all cellar doors, great lunch and a small group. Tour host knew the business and made sure that we had a variety of personal experiences and stayed away from the big bus tour choices of wineries.
We did our tour on 14 February 2016 whilst visiting Melbourne for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. The small tour was a very nice way to do the tour, plenty to time at each winery, wonderful lunch, great tour guide, very informative and helpful, and wonderful company.
If you enjoy wine, you must take a tour to the Yarra Valley with Epicurean. Our small tour group of seven people was expertly led by the very friendly and generous Bill. First stop was De Bortoli vineyard where we sampled a range of delicious wines expertly matched with various cheeses. This was followed by a real treat to meet and sample wines from Graham Miller, a wine making pioneer and legend in the Yarra Valley. Lunch at Tokar Vineyard was completely superb, and was followed by a visit to two more boutique wineries. Don't go with the big tour bus groups - Epicurean's personalised attention and service together with the great company of a small group made for a perfect day! We'll be back!
