The Yarra valley tour was in a beautiful vehicle with Stephen a knowledgeable guide who understood the area and the wine. But every stop felt so rushed, we barely got to finish our drinks at the wineries and were moved on swiftly, only to arrive back to Melbourne a whole 45 minutes before we were scheduled to. When we wanted to sample the wines of each winery we felt under pressure by the guide to do so quickly. It took away from what was meant to be relaxing and made it uncomfortable at times.

Thanks 605anona for taking the time to review your recent Yarra Valley Food and Wine Daytour and disappointed to hear your day was not the relaxing experience you'd been hoping for. We're uncertain why there would have been a need to rush you and will be discussing this with Stephen. We'd love to have you travel with us again to show you how relaxed the day should be. Thanks again for your feedback, it's much appreciated.

We booked this wine tour last minute and in ended being the highlight of our visit to Melbourne. There are so many companies to choose from who offer on the surface a similar service. Please don't be fooled of course we researched trip advisor and then sat down with our concierge and the message is consistent Vinetrekker offer the best trip to the Yarra Valley by far, it is not the cheapest but in this case without doubt you get what you pay for!! . Its a simple formula but done so well - small group, Great guide who has a passion for Wine and Melbourne with 20 years experience of wine and the Yarra valley - (Thank you Stephen), visiting the best winery's but receiving the premium service due to the relationship Vinetrekker have with the winery's. You taste some premium wines that are not readily available in the Europe and multiple grape variety's. One of the highlights was the lunch at the Yerring station amazing food that you would associate with a high end restaurant with service to match and of course a glass of wine from the onsite winery. We finished the day with a paired cheese and wine tasting (blue cheese with dessert wine). In all a fantastic memory which will last forever unlike the bottles of wine we purchased during the day.

We had the most incredible day with Stephen. All of the vineyards were delightful and we had fabulous service. Stephen was knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging. The pace of travel was excellent and time for lunch was perfect.

I have been on several wine tours in the past and this was by far the best.

Tons of fun! Picked up around 9am from the hotel and had about 4 or 5 stops at different wineries including a really nice lunch. Got to taste and learn about the wines of the region all in private tastings. Shane was a great guide and we all had a great time!
