Trip of a lifetime
Apr. 2021 • Friends
What an amazing day and trip! Everything is planned out perfectly and there is great communication from the day of enquiring, booking and the event itself! Extremely great service and we were well looked after! Our guide Ben was extremely entertaining and a very good photographer! I would highly recommend wine bus tours as they looked after me and my friends throughout the whole day! Amazing service and I will be booking with them again!

Fantastic Tour with a great host
Mar. 2020 • Couples
The wineries were fantastic, but what really made this trip was our Winebus host, Ian. He was engaging, told us some great jokes ... And he was very knowledgeable about the area. It also doesn't hurt that this tour is great value, especially when you compare it to other Melbourne wine tours.

Bus load of enjoyment

Fantastic day in the yarra valley.
Thoroughly enjoyed the company, the wines, the lunch, and the ice-creamery to finish it off.
Ian our driver was very knowledgeable of the local area and vineyards we visited, and had some crackling jokes to keep us all entertained.
Would recommend.

Great fun!
Feb. 2020
We had a great time on our Yarra Valley Wine Tour. 4 wineries and a chocolate factory. Our driver was friendly and informative and interested in what we had to say as well. Good talker and listener. The four wineries were good although I was a bit disappointed in the food for lunch. The chicken and fish were so-so but the beef was delicious.
Highly recommend it if you want to taste a wide variety of wines.

The perfect balance
Feb. 2020 • Friends
We visited 4 wineries throughout the day. Our driver Ian was friendly and funny. The wineries were of high quality and we tasted 6 to 10 wines per establishment. The lunch was of a high quality at the Rochford restaurant. After we visited the chocolate factory which was very touristy. We were given time to do our own thing at each stop. The bus was clean and comfortable. Overall a top day!

Awesome Yarra Valley Wine Tour
Feb. 2020 • Couples
We were in Melbourne for a weeks holiday & booked this tour to the Yarra Valley wine region based on review feedback and were not disappointed.
My partner and I had a thoroughly enjoyable day with great commentary and interaction by the host and driver Ian. There was a good cross section of other patrons on the small well appointed bus. We tasted a great selection of wines over a number of vineyards. The included lunch on the tour was impressive and satisfying.
Highly recommend this tour & represents value for money!

The tour was decent but... Over 90% of the tour group wanted to participate in the wine tasting at Chandon for $12.
