        A perfect small group tour that combined our love of wildlife and wine! Highly recommend!! !
        What a wonderful trip to the Yarra Valley! Our driver and guide, Adrian, was friendly, knowledgeable and a great host. We had plenty of time at the Healesville Sanctuary to marvel at the wonderful wildlife of Australia! The lunch at Yering Winery was superb and the wine tasting was fantastic! We capped off the tour with a wine and cheese pairing and tasting at the de Bortoli winery. We would highly recommend this lovely small group tour of the beautiful Yarra Valley area!

        Excellent Day in the Yarra
        Cannot recommend thus tour enough .It exceeded our expectations by a mile. Rob was a fantastic guide/ host. We learned so much about Melbourne and the Yarra Valley. The 2 hour visit to Healesville sanctuary was wonderful and inspiring. The wine tasting and lunch at Yering Station fabulous. And the cheese and wine pairing at De Bortorli just brilliant. I would recommend this tour as a “must do “ when in Melbourne - you won’t be disappointed - ask for Rob .

        Fabulous wine tasting trip
        Very informative guide, visited 5 wineries small and big. Food and wines great. We were in a group of 10 and had a fabulous time talking with everyone and sharing our thoughts. Shane our guide was brilliant answering our questions and making us all feel special. Would definitely recommend Vinetrekker wine tours as they are small and intimate.

        Very fun day!
        We thoroughly enjoyed our day with our guide, Paul. He gave us some interesting regional history on our drive to the sanctuary. At the sanctuary, the volunteer guide Barbara showed us around. She was incredibly knowedgable in the animals and plants. We enjoyed seeing all of the animals before heading out to sample some very tasty wines. I highly recommend this tour.

        Great way to learn about the Yarra Valley
        Paul was a great host on this trip through the Yarra Valley. He was extremely patient and accommodating, especially when our travel plans changed at the last minute. He was able to change the tour itinerary to still give a great tour. Very informative and seemed to know a lot about both the places and the staff at every location. Five stars!

        Brilliant day out, highly recommend!
        What a fantastic day out! After having done a tour to the Yarra Valley last time we were in Melbourne we wanted something different this time and came across this tour to Mornington with Vinetrekker. Whilst more expensive than others we were looking at it is well worth the money, the quality of wineries and food throughout were exceptional as well as the beautiful settings. Crittenden was our first stop and what a way to kick off the tour, the wines were definitely our favourite of the tour! Though it was hard to choose as all we visited were lovely. We ended up being the only ones on the tour which might have been a little strange for some but Cam made us feel like long lost friends and we really enjoyed our day getting to know him and the Mornington Peninsula. Lunch at the General Store was delightful, beautiful food. Couldn't fault the tour and would recommend to anyone who enjoys good wine and beautiful food!

        Thoroughly enjoyed our day. Our driver/guide Cam was very good and looked after us well. We enjoyed the chance to see the animals at Healsville and enjoyed the wine tasting and lunch even more! A nice small group of people made for a fun and interesting day. Would recommend.

        A wonderful wine tour
        We chose a wine and wildlife combined tour. First, the tour guide to visitors ratio was perfect. There won’t be too many people in the tour, unlike some other companies. Second, our driver Shane was very friendly and knowledgeable. The wineries we visited were excellent. They served us good wines and cheeses more than expected. The lunch was delicious too. The Healesville Sanctuary they chose was excellent too. We met all the animals we want to see. My son loved it very much. We highly recommend this combined wine and wildlife tour, especially you have kids. Both parents and kids loved it.

        Yarra Valley Wildlife & Wine Daytour (Private)
        We had a wonderful experience with our private tour guide, Paul, who was very engaging and provided my wife and I with a very personable experience!!! This trip was booked from the US so was already arranged when we hit Melbourne. The trip started with Paul picking us up in a Mercedes Benz Van which was more than enough room to transport us. On the drive out to the Yarra Valley, Paul pointed out various sites of interest to help us get acclimated to the area that the would be in for the day. We arrived at the Healesville Sanctuary and were the second group in line first the 9am opening. I recommend going to the sanctuary early as that is when the animals are most active which enhances the experience. Paul shared some of his insights since he has been there numerous times!!!! You will see kangaroos, wombats, dingos, koalas, Tasmanian devils, birds and the list goes on!!! After the sanctuary, we also visited two (2) wineries where we had taste testing of local wines. Highly recommend visiting the Coldstream Hills Winery where we tasted all kinds of varieties of wine and purchased some to be sent back to our home in the US. We were also treated to a sample of Vanilla Slice which was quite a wonderful surprise!!! We had an amazing day with Paul and highly recommend booking a day tour with Vinetrekker and if possible ask for Paul as yo will be treated to a wonderful experience!!!!

      Our tour guide Paul made our trip a very memorable special one. Paul is extremely professional and has an excellent knowledge of the area and wineries. He was sure to make sure the whole groups likes when it came to wines were taken care of. He was very punctual throughout the day and anticipated all our needs
      The minibus was super clean and well maintained.
      We were so well taken care of
      Well worth the fee

      A special mention to Gail at Bortella -Gail was so accomodating with her pairing of cheeses with our wine the most superb I have ever had

      I would highly recommend Paul and will most certainly book with him again

      Our guide Shane was phenominal in his location selections, his insight on what to expect at each winery, his knowledge of the region and history behind each winery.
      There was no doubt he knew his wines, he had a great sense of humor, and he was well received at each location as was our group.
      The scenery was breathtaking and the weather was perfect. An unexpected treat was seeing Kangaroos in a pasture during the morning hours just before the first winery. All of the foods and cheeses we tasted were on par with he exceptional wines. The tour turned out to be at the top of our "what did you like best about Australia" list.
      Sadly our Australia trip was cut short because of the Virus, and we had to return to the US way too soon, but we thoroughly enjoyed the 10 days we had in Australia starting with Melbourne, and Yarra Valley and Shane.

      Great experience. Our guide Paul was really passionate, knowledgeable and always made us feel really comfortable. We learned so much from him in just a few hours. You could tell that Paul is a kind and generous soul and has acquired long term relationship and connections with the people at the Yarra Valley, which made the experience even more special. The food at Yering station was exquisite and we had the opportunity to try a wide range of delicious wines, we couldn't have left happier. We would not change anything about this tour and will definitely come back with friends.

      Had an incredible Yarra Valley food & wine tour today with Paul at Vinetrekker. The tour itself was absolutely premium, with the best selection of wines, snacks along the way and a sensational lunch. Paul was a superstar from star to finish with fantastic communication and knowledge on all things wine and yarra valley.

      The wineries selected were exceptional and none that I'd visited before, and the lunch options at Yering station were superb. Paul recommended the kangaroo and after some initial reluctance, I said I'd have it as well - and im so glad I did. It was a highlight of the experience and cooked to perfection.

      Top tip: support local businesses and book directly on the vinetrekker website!

      Even though it rained in the morning, it didn't interfere with our tour in the slightest as it was mostly indoors. So rain or shine, you can visit any time of the year :)

      Thank you Paul for such a wonderful day out!! As a born and raised melbournian it was such a new and lovely experience.

      Shane was our driver and guide and gave an informative talk of the history of Melbourne before we arrived at the first stop where one of the guests was dropped off for his tour at the Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary. While there a koala was spotted nestled in a tree near the entrance. We left for our first Wine tasting at Coldstream Hills which was founded by James Halliday, where we enjoyed a range of wines from their wonderful sparkling to pinot noir and other reds. From there we went to the stunning Medhurst Winery. We loved every wine we tasted. There was cheese, humus and olives to compliment the wines. The next wine house was Domain Chandon with a generous pour of two sparkling wines made by the same “méthode traditionnelle” as their famous Champagne House, Moët & Chandon. The next stop was Yering Station Vineyard where in addition to an extensive tasting we had a wonderful à la carte lunch with our choice of wine. The last tasting was at De Bertoli Wines where in addition to tasting their top wines including a 2011 Noble One the wines were paired with cheeses. This was one of the best wine tours we have had. Shane was an excellent tour guide explaining the origins and significance of the each winery as well as the history of this wine growing region. To top it off we saw kangaroos in amongst the cattle in the paddock on the way back to Melbourne. The day went by very quickly but we never felt rushed. Take this wine tour. You will not be disappointed.

      Hello there Sandra and thanks for taking the time to review your Yarra Valley Wine and Food Daytour. We're delighted to hear how much you loved the day and that it rates as one of the best tours you've taken. Having a caring and interested guide can elevate the day from good to great and there's no doubting the passion and energy that Shane brings to the day.

      Our wine and food day tour to the Yarra Valley was just sensacional. We explored the Yarra Valley in company of Paul who was the best tour guide and another couple visiting from Sydney. In overall, we were able to visit 4 different wineries and had a wine and cheese tasting in the first stop. Furthermore, we had 3 more wine tastings and an exquisite lunch in a beautiful restaurant with a breathtaking view of the winery. During the tour we also managed to stop by a wine seller where we had the fifth wine tasting. I do have to admit that the quality of wine we tried were very good. We were able to try some merlot, sangiovese, sauvignon blanc and sparkling wine among others. In fact it was very interesting trying a new grape called Gamay which I enjoyed a lot. Additionally, the bus used for the tour was very clean, the A/C worked perfectly well and it was just fit for a small group. In overall, we had a 10 hour tour which felt like a lot less because we had a great company, excellent wine tasting and food and most important we were not rushing and felt safe. We even had time to make some quality shopping and benefited from a 10% in all the stores. Finally, I am glad I selected this tour because it was money well spent, very professional service, no rush, no stress of a large group in the middle of pandemic and Paul was so nice and professional it is always a plus to have a tour guide that is so kind.

      What a lovely review Alexandraleiva and thanks so much for your kind words. We're delighted you had such a positive experience touring the Yarra Valley and that Paul took such good care of you. We're fussy about the condition of our vehicles and believe they're the best quality for public tours in Melbourne. Delighted too that you got to taste a wide range of wines and loved the lunch. It was a pleasure to have you travel with us and we really appreciate the support you afforded us. All the best and we hope to see you again soon.

      What a tour! Our guide, Paul, picked us up in Melbourne and whisked my husband and me (along with 6 other people) off to the Yarra Valley for a day of tastings and treats. Paul entertained us (Americans, Aussies and Europeans) with his knowledge of wine on the drive to our first vineyard that started off with great wine and a delicious cheese tasting. Paul knew his wine as well as the vineyard owners, getting us access to private rooms and boutique wineries along with a behind the scene tour of Domaine Chandon Winery. And the Yering Station lunch! Amazing food, amazing views paired with amazing wine! We still talk about this tour and would do it again with Paul as our guide in a heartbeat. Don’t miss out on the Yarra Valley Wine & Food tour with lunch at Yering Station!

      Great to hear from you annemB291YI and thanks so much for your review. It was a pleasure to have you and your husband travel with us to the Yarra Valley and a joy to entertain you both. Our tour is a lot more than providing transport and overseeing the wine tastings at the respective vineyards. We have a lot of relevant knowledge to share with our guests that can only elevate their experience. To know that you'd take the tour again in a heartbeat vindicates the quality and vlue of our tour. All the best and please know, your support means a lot to us.

      We were picked up from Melbourne by our knowledgable guide Rob who gave us a fascinating history of Melbourne as we drove to the Yarra Valley. We started at De Bortoli with a delicious cheese-paired wine tasting. Then we moved on to Yering Station where we tasted more wines and had a fantastic à la carte lunch with more wine included overlooking a fantastic view of the mountains. Next up was Payten & Jones where we tried a delicious selection of wines including a skin-contact wine and a vermouth to finish. We then headed to Oakridge winery which boasted a great view and a lovely selection of red and whites. We finished up at Medhurst who kindly welcomed us into their beautiful property and were guided through a tasting by their very own winemaker Simon. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better experience, and Rob our guide really was fantastic.

      Thanks benjaminbN6583ZJ for taking the time to review your recent Yarra Valley Wine and Food Daytour and delighted you had such an awesome experience with Rob. Travelling mid-week is definitely the way to go as the venues are much quieter than on weekends and staff have more time to interact. Rob is a very generous guide who cares for his guests and works hard to ensure they have the best possible experience. It was a pleasure to have you travel with us and we look forward to showing you the Mornington Peninsula and the Macedon Ranges.

      The day was supposed to start with 7 passengers but at pickup there was just "me".
      Most fortuitous that the other passengers cancelled and provided me with a private tour. It's funny how things can work out and travelling does throw up some wonderful experiences. My very knowledgeable tour guide Rob, provided me with a great one on one guided tour of the selected vineyards & beautiful surrounding landscapes - some wineries large, some small and each with their signature wines. Lunch at Yering Station was a' la carte and equal to any fine dining I have experienced.
      I have some wonderful wines heading my way to Hervey Bay Qld so whilst enjoying the wines I will have great memories of the day I purchased them.
      As the saying goes "I will be back" !!!!

Thanks for choosing to travel with us and we'll look forward to having you travel with us again when you're next in Melbourne. All the best and enjoy the wine.

      Excellent Day Trip! Shane was our tour guide. He was excellent! He gave us information on each winery visited. Each winery had excellent presentation by their staff and were able to give further information on each wine presented. We visited the De Bortoli Winery, Yearing Station, Chandon, Coldstream Hills, Medhurst Winery. Had a great lunch at Yearing Station. Shane, our guide, made sure everyone had a great time and were well informed. Great tour!

      Great to hear from you B2578NVvickib and thanks for the review of your recent Yarra Valley Wine and Food Daytour. Shane is a wonderful guide and works so hard to engage with his group, share information and generally create a great atmosphere within the group. There's no doubting the quality of the wine and food, it's something we're very focused on. Thanks for supporting us, we greatly appreciate it.
