Our guide, Juliet, made our day one not to forget. Pleasant from the start, she made sure we were all informed about the day ahead and interacted with all groups within the party. She had good knowledge of the wineries and farms and was a lot of fun. Would highly recommend this tour to anybody.

Birthday with the fun team
Had a wonderful day with Paul driving our group around the Yarra Valley. Friendly, relaxed and didn't feel rushed on to next spot. Visited three wineries of different sizes, including the oldest winery in the Yarra. Beautiful cheeses at a small independent operation and a tasty elegant lunch. Of course the day wouldn't have been complete without a visit to the Yarra Valley chocolateri. Thoroughly enjoyed all the taste sensations and Aussie hospitality. Thank you Paul.

A great day out
Mar. 2020 • Couples
We booked at very short notice (24 hours) for the wine, cheese and chocolate tour. Chris the tour guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and a great guide.
We visited a variety of farms/winery’s and tasted some amazing local produce. The lunch was very good too at a nice restaurant with a good choice of meals

This is a quality tour, visiting quality establishments.

High recommended and good value.

Wine, cheese and chocolate heaven

Mel was great fun!
Mar. 2020 • Couples
This was a great balance between wine, cheese,
chocolate and gourmet food. Everything was wonderful. Mel was our tour guide and she was very knowledgeable and so much fun. We had 14 in our group which was a great size. This was a great introduction to the region. It gave us an idea of what we want to do when we come back.

Bucket list trip
Mar. 2020 • Couples
This is Not a small group tour. Got on a school bus with 25 others. Not a good tour if you enjoy really good wine
either. Wine talks were so crowded we couldn’t hear anything. People were dropped at intersections instead of their hotels at the end of the day.

This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
This is a really disappointing review. Firstly, we make as clear as we possibly can that our tours operate with a maximum group size of 24 guests, so no one should be under any illusions about what size group they will be joining. However, it is certainly an issue for us if any guest should have trouble hearing the wine and/or food presentations at the locations we visit and if this were the case we'd be very keen to follow this up with the location that provides the presentations. We have reached out to the reviewer to try to establish the date of their travel, but our messaging via the TripAdvisor system has been ignored. Also, if any team member has dropped off our guests to a location other than their hotel at the end of the day, we'd be very keen to establish the reviewer's date of travel, to ensure that the guide responsible if appropriately counselled regarding their actions. This is why it is extremely disappointing that the reviewer has failed to respond to our messages, as - if we can't identify the reviewer's date of travel and therefore their tour guide's name - we're relatively powerless to provide the swift kick in the posterior that might be required. We would strongly suggest to any person thinking of leaving a negative review that they contact the tour operator to pass on their feedback - thereby giving them an opportunity to address any issues - rather than simply leaving a negative review which doesn't assist in identifying the individual responsible for letting the team down.

A day of wine & taste at Yarra Valley
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Spent an awesome day with 14 others and our jovial, energetic tour guide, Juliet! Tasted fresh fruits and juices produce, award winning wines, and ended with sweet chocolates and ice cream treats!
Kudos to Juliet who always delight us with her story sharing, dee-jaying, singing and ensuring everyone had a good and safe time.
