    Very unorganised!!
    First stop - Yarra Valley dairy, company had not updated their guest numbers, so staff were rude to the tour guide, she was very professional though. Then company books us a table for lunch OUTSIDE!!! Who on earth wants to sit outside in the middle of winter and in the icy Yarra Valley??!! Company was unorganised and blamed the tour guide for not setting the guests expectations beforehand!!

    Great Value. Top Guide
    Karen was friendly, funny and informative. The lunch was of a good standard and the time at venues was just right although the chocolate factory, I could have stayed forever! Thank you for a week organised and memorable outing.

    Great experience
    Great experience. Lots packed into one day. Lunch included. Karen is a wonderful host. Great if you’re looking for a convenient Yarra Valley wine tour that packs a lot of different things into a single day. Pick up and drop-off in Melbourne CBD a plus.

    Great variety for a wine tour
    Great variety of vineyards and very helpful tour guide (Karen). You get a decent amount of time at each vineyard, and helpful recommendations from the guide gave you pointers of what to look out for.

    Lovely Weather too as well as a great tour
    A wonderful day out. Sean was a great host. We got lots of information (and wine) all about the region and the grapes they grow. The lunch was a grazing plate to start. I had the Barramundi and my friends had the chicken. Delicious lunch and so well cooked. The brewery was fun and the chocolate factory was a delight. Recommend this trip to find out all about the Yarra Valley region and the wineries etc there.

    Fantastic wine tasting tour
    This is the best trip I've ever had. It's a family-run tour, which feels so different from a corporate-run tour. Shawn, our tour guide, goes above and beyond to offer us a fantastic experience and choose the best wine tasting spots. I'll definitely join again when I return to Melbourne.

    Great tour to the Yarra valley.
    Three wineries, a brewery, ice cream all with lunch. The wineries were well chosen and provided good selections of their wines to taste. Beer was a paddle of six beers from the brewery. The tour guide was great, friendly, and provided a fun outing for all. There was a good selection of food for the lunch. Overall this was a great tour.

Very well organized tour. They use a comfortable bass with panoramic windows. I recommend buying wine from Corniola winery, if you'll like one, as it would be hard to get one later on. They carry very boutique tasting wines.

What a fabulous day! A lovely day tour of the Yarra Valley visiting and learning more about Australian wines with a lovely lunch and wine included. Some beautiful scenery and tour commentary by host and tour guide Sean. We had 16 people in the group from all over the world - great company and conversation. Tour was on time for pick up in central Melbourne and returned the same. Great value for money and would highly recommend the tour and experience for everyone who wants to see something outside of the Melbourne city area, meet new people and taste some wines, ciders, beers and topped off by ice cream and chocolate!!

We enjoyed every moment of this tour. The host, Selina, was thoughtful, witty and passionate about the Yarra Valley and Melbourne. We love the fact it included tastings at 3 top notch wineries, a 2 course lunch with a glass of wine, a brewery tasting paddle and visit to a choc ice-cream factory - all in all it was great value! We love the bus as well, it was the most comfortable vehicle I've been since touring Melbourne so this is a bonus. We'd highly recommend this experience for anybody who like a full experience of the Yarra Valley that's all inclusive and fun.

This has probably been one of the best tours I've ever gone on simply because our tour guide - Sean - was really entertaining and had a really good knowledge of the Yarra Valley. There were a lot of laughs on the tour which made for an entertaining day.
The tour itself was really well planned out and covered a good range of different wineries. I also loved how it included a stop at the Yarra Valley dairy, chocolaterie and one stop to enjoy a glass of beer/cider, so definitely something for everyone. Really great value. Thank you so much for an amazing day out, will most definitely recommend Dancing Kangaroos to friends and family :D

Giovanna was the best. We loved the tour. Visiting the dairy for cheese tasting which accommodated our cows milk allergy was much appreciated. 3 vineyards, craft beer and cider tastings was enjoyed tremendously. Lunch at the 2nd vineyard was delicious. Our final stop for chocolate and gelato was perfect way to end the day. Please note the gelato is not included in the tour but worth the additional cost. What a great way to spend the day and see the beautiful Yarra Valley.

It was a wonderful tour of the Yarra Valley and Sean was an amazing host.
I highly recommend this tour because it covers a wide selection of experiences. The itinerary covered 3 beautiful wineries - our favourite was Soumah which provided a delicious lunch too. To top it off we also visited a popular chocolate ice cream factory and brewery pub. Overall this is great value and a great way to enjoy the Yarra Valley hassle-free.

Highly recommended- ten mature adults visiting from New Zealand September 2022, and we fortunately chose Dancing Kangaroos for our day long wine tour.
Sean’s company was a delight, he is great fun, entertaining and has a great understanding of the wine industry and the history of the Yarra Valley.
His selection of the wineries that we visited was excellent, smaller, not huge commercial ones. So the range of tastings was varied, whites and reds of different varieties and the Lunch was excellent, high quality food served in beautiful surroundings. The visit to the chocolate and ice cream factory also interesting and fun. A stop at a local craft beer bar for a tasting of beers and ciders was a great way to finish.
At no stage were we rushed through any of the wineries, lunch or looking around at things, so a relaxed and extremely enjoyable day was appreciated by all ten of us.
Thank you Sean, you know how to get hold of us if you are in NZ and we would love to see you again.

Giovanna... Yayyyy! Our guide for this trip was Giovanna and she was wonderful. This trip is the best value of any trips we took while in Australia. You get to go to wineries, a dairy, a chocolate factory and a brewery. All with tastings included. You also get a nice lunch at a beautiful winery! If you are up for a fun and energetic time, you should definitely book this tour!

We had a great time on tour with Sean from Dancing Kangaroo Tours. He was a highly informative and passionate tour guide which was made the day really fun. The itinerary covered 5 stops consisting of 3 lovely wineries, a brewery and a chocolate/ice-cream factory. The lunch was delicious and it included a glass of estate wine. Overall, we highly recommend this tour for anybody looking for a carefree day in the Yarra Valley region.
