      Amazing wine/cheese/gin/chocolate tour! Great value for money!
      Had a fantastic day trip out to Yarra Valley with our driver Aydin! He was a great personality to have taking care of us for the day and provided some great knowledge too (even helped us figure out our plans for the evening after the tour had finished). The wine/cheese/gin/chocolate tour is amazing value for money and I would highly recommend it to anyone as a relaxing day trip to escape the city buzz for a bit! The company also provided excellent communication and clear instructions in the days leading up to the tour which was immensely helpful and appreciated! Thank you TeePee Tours team!

      The best day
      This was a fantastic tour! Murph, our guide, was great! He was super friendly, fun, and flexible to ensure everyone having the best day! We went to 2 wineries, a gin tasting place, a cheese place and a chocolaterie. Each place had its own character and vibe. Some people on our tour opted to skip the gin bar and chocolaterie for more wineries which was amazing to have that as an option to cater for everyone! Would absolutely recommend

      Half day tour
      A very impressive one day tour by Andrew in Yarra valley vineyard. I am really impressed with Andrew's expression in this area, especially for some wine information. Frankly speaking, vineyard here is a little different with my sister- in-law's in Taiwan. The vineyard is a little bit lower in Yarra valley and leaves are not as big as what I see in Taiwan. I can see the variety of wines by fermentation and distillation compared with the one in sister in law's. It is amazing to see the kangaroo in the vineyard too. The taste of wines are really unique and impressive. First time for me to taste all varieties in short time. If you are a wine lover, it is worthy for you to visit. Enjoy.

      Great Winery + More Tour of the Yarra Valley
      From start to finish this was an amazing tour for this normally non alcoholic drinker. Nice wine tour at the Yering Farms and at the Helen and Joey Winery. Alex, our driver and guide got us through the wine tours, the Gin floats at Four Pillars plus yummy sampling of chocolate. Alex was great at time management and easy with pleasant conversation. This tour was GREAT! Thank you, ALEX😘 from this Califorian!

      A great day out!!
      What a fantastic day we had with Andrew (Drew!) visiting the Yarra Valley! Such a laid back, fun experience. It literally feels like you’re on tour with a random ozzie you met in a bar the night before who offered to show you around!! Drew has a very flexible approach and planned the day based on what the group wanted. All four stops were fab and the lunch stop at Quarters restaurant was perfect. No stuffy wine experts boring you to death - just people who are passionate about what they produce. Thanks Andrew!! You’re doing a great job!

      Great day out in the Yarra Valley
      A wonderful day out with a small but friendly group of 12. Todd, our guide, was great fun and the day was really well planned with stops at two wineries, lunch, then a gin tasting and a chocolate tasting. Would definitely recommend booking with this company.

      Best wine tour-don’t Miss it
      Our wine tour was fab. The tour was small, on time, relaxed and we were able to choose on the day what we all wanted to do. We chose the wine, gin, champagne tour plus lunch and a chocolate trip at the end. Our tour guide was funny and entertaining. You can choose your own music on the bus and take your own drinks. We got to meet some lovely people and enjoyed our day.

      Brilliant Yarra Valley tasting
      Had a great time. Our guide was great and we packed plenty of tastings in. Had wine and gin and skipped the chocolate. The Spotify playlist helps break the ice with the group.

    This was a GREAT trip, especially for solo travellers!! I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great, fun, tour with a wide variety of stops!! Andrew the tour guide from my trip, created a tour specific to our wants for that day - he asked us when we arrived what our dream tour would be then made an itinerary that fit everyone's wishes!! I went alone and within 10 mins I had already made new friends and connections with the other people and groups that day - so much fun!! Andrew also made a group Spotify playlist that we all added to throughout the day which made the drive that much better!

    The tour was amazing from start to end. Our tour guide was a lot of fun, he got the bus pumping with a shared Spotify playlist and his good vibes. He made it very clear on how the itinerary was going to go, we went to 3 different wineries, one more rustic (farm like), one pretty modern and the 3rd one was also where we had lunch (the food was superb) and it had an art gallery too. Then we headed to four pillars gin distillery, this was another great experience. We were also able to buy some of the four pillars gin from the factory with a tour discount ($10 off each bottle). We finished off at a chocolate factory where we did chocolate tasting. Overall a fab day, great weather (pretty lucky for Melbourne) and a great group of people.

    Only thing I would say is, the trip advisor tour description mentions it’s an intimiate tour with no more than 16 people but there was 22 or 23 of us. Not really an issue, as it was a great group of people but just something to bear in mind if you’re booking for this purpose.

    We booked as a couple and had a fantastic time on the tour. The drive was entertaining and short, compared to near-Sydney wineries. The organisation was very good, there was time for wine tasting, enjoying the scenery, and chatting. The lunch at the restaurant was very delicious, and I recommend ordering one of the local wines too. The wine tasting was well selected, and the wineries we visited gave a familiar feel. At the gin place, I would recommend ordering mini-pies (oh-so good) and if you happen to go to the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie you'll find perfect it a perfect complement for all the wine you had earlier.

    Andrew was a fantastic tour guide. We had such a relaxing tour and the tour was customized to what we wanted. He asked questions to get to know the people in the group and played whatever music we requested. He has a great sense humor. We would highly recommend Andrew and this wine tour to anyone. Thanks Andrew especially for the experience with relieving our childhood in a children’s ball Pitt and your participation.

    Had a fantastic day exploring the Yarra Valley. From the customised playlist to the unique itinerary- it is clear that Drew puts so much thought into designing the best wine tour based on the each individual group's personality and interests. It was a beautiful, relaxed day in the most picturesque of settings. As a solo traveler, it was a wonderful way to meet people as well. Highly recommend!

    We had a wonderful morning and afternoon wine tasting, eating lunch, sampling gins, and tasting chocolate, thanks to Dan. She was very good at corralling all 14 people in our party, driving our bus, giving us information, etc. Stellar.

    We started at Helen & Joey where we had some awesome wine tasting (including Magic Unicorn canned wine spritzers), Chandon for a couple of glasses of sparkling wine, lunch at Huberts, a gin tasting at Four Pillars, and then a private tasting of various chocolates at Yarra Valley Chocolaterie. The pacing was good, and we were back in the city (amongst rush hour traffic) before 5pm. It was a wonderful time.

    So glad I chose Laid Back wine tour and would highly recommend to anyone wanting variety.
    Andrew is entertaining and informative without the fake and rigidity of yr regular tour guides. Best of all he is guided by the group and how they want their day to run. Rather than 1 winery after another we decided to go to 2 wineries (which were both great) then a delicious lunch ( food to our own choosing and cost) we then stopped at Chandon (for some bubbles) then Four Pillars Gin for a Gin paddle tasting and then finished off with a stop for chocolate tasting. Of course if multiple winery stops are yr thing Andrew will adjust the days itinerary to suit the group. Andrew is very down to earth and has a way of making everyone feel welcome.
    I would highly recommend Andrew's Laid Back tour to anyone wanting variety with a casual and fun day out to experience the Yarra Valley and what it has to offer.
    Thanks for a fabulous day, my daughter and I had a great time.

    Travelled with 2 friends and this was the highlight of our girls trips. Our tour guide Andrew personalised the tour to the group which made the trip even more enjoyable and the choices of locations to visit were spot on. Highly recommend the locations we visited which included Helen & Joey's Estate, Huberts Estate, Yerling Farm, Chandon, Four Pillars and the Chocolatier. Only 2 of our group voted to go to the Chocolatier stop but the rest of us were glad we did go - it is a must do also. Just a small tip for those who like champagne for us girls in hindsight we would have preferred Chandon first before we got stuck into the wines but that was just our preference. If you want a taste of the Yarra Valley in one day - you must choose Teepee Tours.

    The 4 Pillars Gin distillery was awesome. I wasn't a big Gin fan prior but some of the boutique fruit and spiced gins are incredible. The 3 paddle (actually 4 came out) with optional tonic was great value esp. with owner of 4 Pillars giving you the run-down and history.
    Peter our driver was fantastic and really knowledgeable wrt history of the valley. A great day out, great people on bus - would go again in a heartbeat.

    Drew was an amazing tour guide, who made the experience very personal with the group to cater to what they liked. He was very knowledgeable of the area and was extremely engaging with the group. Even though we were all strangers, by the end of the day everyone was able to connect with each other. I couldn’t recommend Andrew highly enough and strongly encourage anyone interested in this tour to take part in it. Highlight of our trip for sure 👍
