My husband and I recently had a day with Ian on the Wine bus and enjoyed the experience very much.
Ian was a great guide, and the places we visited were in lovely locations and gave a very informative overview of all of their wines and the vineyards they each have.
The lunch at Tokar estate was really nice, and the chance to go to some established places like Chandon and then a new estate like Helen and Joey's was a really good mix.
The Yearing visit was also good and the cider tasting there is a must (buy a chilled bottle for $7 to drink there).
The whole tour is quite informal (it doesn't need you to be a wine buff to enjoy) and Ian does a good job explaining about the wines and the region, allowing enough time to sample plenty and make the most of the day.
Would definitely recommend this tour to try some wines and see some of the Yarra Valley as well.

Me and my wife had a really great time with Winebus and we just booked it like 1 hour before the pick up time :) I was keen to have the wine tasting tour on that day but want to avoid driving a rental car as drink and driving regulation in Victoria is very strict. Browse the TripAdvisor and found out Winebus as one of solution and easily available for online booking even on very last minute.

Ian the driver is very fun guy. We had a great time...! Thank you Winebus!

Mr Ian our guide was the perfect person to bring us on this tour. He was very friendly and informative and got along well with both adults and kids. Our lunch at the Tokar Estate Winery was magnificent. Most of us either had the salmon or steak. The view from the dining room was picturesque and the whole place was so serene. The food was well prepared and scrumptious. The skin of the salmon was crisp and the salmon itself was cooked to perfection. The steak was done to our liking, medium rare, though you can request for medium. The two sides of salad and sauteed vegetable were flavourful. And everyone got to enjoy a glass of wine of their choice along with their meal. The Tokar Estate Winery also provides kid's menu.

Overall, I enjoyed Moet Chandon, Tokar Estate Winery (for lunch), Helen & Joey Estate and the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery the most. Take your time to enjoy the scenery from both Moet Chandon and Helen & Joey Estate. And don't forget to take a picture with the unicorn at Helen & Joey Estate.

Ian is very knowledgable with the wine, and he is patient to answer all kind of question you ask, related or non related with wine! IAN is the booking person, bus operator, tour guide, and also wine expert! I'm sure you will feel like this is a long met friends guiding you through the winery!
