      Great Variety showing off the Yarra Valley
      This was a great way to sample the goods from The Yarra Valley! We loved that our tour showed a great mix of wine, Gin and Chocolate. Our Tour Guide Matt was also very charismatic, knowledgeable and kept the group organized and on time.

      Great tour with flexable lunch options
      We wanted a tour with flexable lunch options due to dietary requirements. Red Carpet tours gave us that .The lunch stop at Quarters at St Huberts estate was an ideal choice we chose from the menu. The visited wineries and distillery offered plenty of tasting. choices .The service from Matt and Thomas was great.I can highly recommend this tour

      Wine tour for a friend's hens day
      A highly recommended wine tour. We did the Yarra Valley area, it was so much fun. Our tour guide"Doc" was fantastic, and just a genuine all round top bloke. Tom was also so helpful in helping us plan the day, and certainly knows the area and places well. This tour will not disappoint.

      Well organised and a LOT of fun!
      Tom (our driver and guide for the day) was a pleasure to deal with. We had a group of 12, who were looking to explore the best of the Yarra Valley wineries. The tour was well planned for a group of our size, showed off 4 fantastic wineries in the region and most of all, was a lot of fun. Would highly recommend!

      Great tour with the whole family!
      The tour was very well organized and Thomas was extremely flexible to accommodate all of our requests. We could choose the wineries that we wanted to visit and Thomas was very happy to advise or give recommendations. We visited Helen & Joey, Oakridge, Rochford, and Domaine Chandon. During the tour, we had plenty of time to walk around and explore the different wineries and of course to enjoy the wine tasting. We even made an additional stop at another winery which was not originally planned but great to get to see even more of the Yarra Valley. We got picked up at the hotel in a private bus and the whole day was very relaxed and enjoyable. Would highly recommend!

    Wonderful wine tasting in the Yarra Valley with our excellent guide Tom who was so helpful and accommodating to all our needs. Superb day tour would highly recommend for high quality wine tasting, wonderful food, scenic views and comfortable bus. A very enjoyable day out will definitely repeat on my next visit to Melbourne.

    The trip was delightful and engaging. Tom, the owner, did a great job at introducing us to the multiple wineries in the Yarra Valley Region and added an additional stop to Chandon’s winery. Beautiful wine and gin tasting all throughout and such a plus that we were only a small group of people which felt like the tour was more intimate and personalised. Highly recommend them and shoutout to Tom for being a cool bloke.

    The tour was phenomenal, a highly entertaining experience. I'm confident that the differentiating factor of this experience was Matt, our guide. Matt made an effort to give us an incredible experience, always aiming to make us feel in a unique and comfortable way. If you have Matt as your guide, you'll truly enjoy the tour, which also takes you to very picturesque and beautiful vineyards.

    From the friendly welcome to the drop off, the driver of this tour made it the best tour I have been on. He kept us on time so we managed to get to all the 'extra' stops where all the tasting hosts were friendly and informative. Jake was a great tour guide. We were a small group but his commentary and conversation brought us all together. Incredible day, would highly recommend it.

    We were lucky to be on a small group tour (only 3 of us). Tom was on time, really friendly and went above and beyond proposing stops that were not scheduled on the initial plan. We visited 3 wine tasting vineyards, took great photos, went to a gin tasting, sparkling wine vineyard belonging to LVMH, had a great lunch, but we also went to look for wildlife (kangaroos) on our way back and saw a few of them. Thanks Tom, that was just excellent!

    Had an awesome day really! Enjoyed the small group van ride (as opposed to big bus tours). Tom, the organizer, was very nice and went out of his way to make sure we were happy. He included cheese tasting (amazing local cheeses) and got us a bottle of champagne at a winery that was not part of our tour and didn't have a place to accommodate us, but we enjoyed that visit very much. Chocolate Factory was a great addition too. This was a last-minute trip for me during my less than 48hrs stopover in Melbourne, and I could not have been happier I went for it. Coming from other big wine regions (California and Europe) I am so grateful I saw this beautiful landscape and wineries that didn't try to copy the ones in Europe or each other. Each was unique and beautiful. (One winery had a gallery with an Aboriginal art exhibition, which was a bonus.) Beautiful original architecture blended into a beautiful landscape! You can't go wrong with this one, even if you are not a big wine drinker

    This tour was absolutely incredible from start to finish! Tom was a wonderful guide and was very helpful and accomodating for the needs of our group, from making the booking to ensuring that there were appropriate options at every location for a pregnant friend. The tour is well paced (good amount of time at each winery to take photos and appreciate the scenery) and Tom shared a lot of hot tips to get the best experience for the group. Thank you so much for making it such a wonderful day, particularly the bride- all your efforts were much appreciated!!

    I have just got back from the tour of the Yarra Valley,what a great day. In addition to seeing the beautiful countryside of the Yarra valley (lots of photo opportunities!) We saw kangaroos in the wild, visited 3 wineries, a gin distillery and chocolate factory.

    One of the things I appreciated most about this tour was Tom's flexibility and consideration for everyone's preferences. He took the time to speak with each guest and understand what they were most interested in, and then adjusted the itinerary accordingly.

    Went on a public tour on Sunday. Could not have picked a better day, weather was perfect. Tom was very approachable, making it easy for me to mingle with others. I enjoyed the mix of the day between different attractions of the Yarra Valley (wine, gin and chocolate). I did appreciate going to some relatively unknown wineries as well as Tom making arrangements for the group to change the day up by adding in an extra stop to Chandon (this pleased the group immensely!). A great time was had!
