Our group of ladies enjoyed yet another another three day annual weekend away. This year we visited the Grampians. Paul has been creating different and innovative weekends away for us for 22 years. Every one of them has been wonderful. Paul is attentive to our comfort and needs and is patient and flexible. Every year he finds lovely places for us to stay and many hidden gems to visit. Food, wine and scenery all superb. Looking forward to next year already!

Great to hear from you chappyMelbourne and thanks for taking the time to review your recent Grampians weekend tour. We enjoy being able to arrange the tour each year and look forward to visiting places we'd usually not get to. Your group are so easy to work with that it makes planning for the weekend not difficult. We look forward to the tradition continuing next year.

My friend and I had an amazing day! Best tour I've ever been on. We went to five different wineries in Yarra Valley. They all had great selection of wines. We also had a lovely lunch at Yering Station with a beautiful view. Paul taught us so much about wines on the tour and I think I can now appreciate the taste of a good wine. Thank you once again for a great experience.

Our tour on Saturday was so much fun - the whole day was perfect and made my birthday surprise for my husband everything I was hoping for! Rob is such a fabulous guide, so friendly and funny, genuinely a lot of fun to spend the day with. He took a lot of trouble to share his vast local knowledge about Melbourne and the Yarra Valley, even including fascinating elements about its history and cultural background. Our appreciation of his easy-going manner cannot be understated - from 8.40 a.m. on a Saturday for TEN HOURS, he managed unexpected traffic diversions and good-naturedly negotiated the increasing level of incapacitation of his inebriated clients. Before the tour, we had absolutely no idea about wine, or the region - we learned so much! The tour pace was excellent - busy and action-packed, but never any pressure to hurry. We had time to ask questions and never once felt rushed despite the full schedule. The venues we visited were beautiful, all the staff were friendly and engaging, and it is evident that a lot of consideration has been put into choosing different styles of wineries - from the larger well-known manufacturers to the elegant local producers and more modern, boutique-style venues. Even lunch was perfect! We really appreciated the level of communication during the planning stages - your confirmation text and email offered very clear instructions about the schedule and what to expect; in particular, the recommendation to arrange breakfast in advance and clarification of the ever-changing rules regarding the COVID-19 guidelines! We would absolutely recommend your tour to anyone interested in seeing wineries in the Yarra Valley.

Thank you for your detailed review Lisa Marie and delighted to hear how successful your recent Yarra Valley Wine and Food Daytour was. We're fortunate to have Rob as part of the team. He's got a strong customer focus and will go the extra yard to enhance his guests' experience. It's obvious to them that he enjoys his work. The itinerary is well balanced and provides an excellent overview of what the Yarra Valley does best. It was a pleasure having you travel with us and a great way to celebrate your husband's birthday. Thanks for your support and all the best.

All wine lovers can agree that the best and most safest way to go winetasting touring is with a wine tour guide who is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable about the best vineyards and winery to enjoy throughout Australia's Wine Country. That is Paul with Vinetrekker! We had an amazing time with Paul and several other couples that were on the wine tasting tour. Paul is extremely well versed in Australia's wine country and will take you to some of the best hidden gems off the beaten path. We had a fantastic time touring Yara Valley, CoBaw Ridge, Hanging Rock, Curly Flat and the Macedon Range Along with a stop for lunch at the Hanging Rock Cafe. We highly recommend Vinetrekker for wine tasting tours and ask for Paul.

My friend and I wanted to craft our own day tour to the Mornington Peninsula (Sorrento & Portsea) as we both have some health issues that would have made a group tour difficult. We decided to use Vine Trekker, referred to us through our hotel The Langham in Melbourne. They coped with our changing schedule (switching days), and communication via the Langham team and VineTrekker was great and very prompt. Our driver Steve arrived on time and came into the hotel to collect us from Reception. He was very knowledgable and provided commentary on sites of interest and history as we travelled. We finalised our plans for the day as we went along, and even added an extra hour at the end to allow more time at the winery we visited on our way back. This winery (Heathcote Estate) was one recommended to us by Steve for its stunning views and good service, and we were not disappointed. They were also able to cater for my GF needs as a coeliac. It was a great end to a very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable day. We will definitely use their services again.
