It can be quite daunting picking the right tour as there a few to choose from in this area. Man I chose well!! My partner and I and sister had one of the best days which we will remember for years to come. Ian was a fabulous host who was welcoming, professional but also had us all in stitches with his funny personality. What a treat! The wineries were fantastic and had an absolutely delicious lunch at Tokar Estate. One of the yummiest steaks I have tried with delicious potatoes and fresh veges. My partner and sister had the Fish and they loved it also. I know the menu here would probably change but the quality was outstanding and the setting and service beautiful! The young man doing the tasting at Tokar was exceptional, what a great asset. So nice to see someone so passionate about his job. Helen and Joey, and Yearing both smaller wineries were lovely also and again the service from here was outstanding. The chocolate factory was amazing, high quality chocolate and sublime icecream! The scenery was beautiful and Chandon Estate just beautiful, champagne at 10.30am what a fab way to kick off the day. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience. I will be recommending it to everyone.

Winebus did a fabulous job on a beautiful day out on a wine tour of the Yarra valley.
Ian was truly a terrific host and driver. Very informative and friendly but gives your quiet time too. Not that there's ever much quiet time with a bus load of Canadian gals on a wine tour. Patience of a saint that Ian. The wineries are a good sampling of large and small, which was great too. I'd highly recommend this one.

Ian you were outstanding.
One of the most enjoyable trips we have ever done. Highly entertaining. Lunch was Devine. I love unicorns : )
Entertaining, lots of laughs, great winery's, beautiful countryside all bought together in one brilliant package with Ian leading the Pack.. Somewhat suspect jokes tho ( kidding ; )
Thanks for the fun
