What a great tour we had a full day, 4 wineries with an amazing lunch, a visit to a cheese factory and then the ultimate a chocolate factory, wether you drink wine or eat cheese (I don’t) I wouldn’t have missed this tour, the scenery was so beautiful, the places we visited were great with welcoming staff and our driver made us all feel welcome. Great value.

I booked the new Saturday afternoon Sparkling wine tour for myself and 6 friends. This was the first time the tour had run and it was a very positive experience. Margo from reservations was my one and only point of contact throughout the booking, and she was very helpful and organised, even arranging a special pick up from the city. We were picked up on time and had a nice, spacious vehicle to take us around. Our driver was friendly.

The tour itself was very interesting; we tried a number of wines at each of the three wineries we attended, and the staff were clearly knowledgeable and passionate about the industry. The Chandon tour was especially great; we got a free flute of our choice of Chandon and were allowed generous time in the restaurant area to taste more bubbles and even order some food. The views were stunning and there was plenty of time to take photos and enjoy the scenery. The chocolatier was enjoyable and it was reasonably priced. We got a good amount of time to walk around and try different sweets and some free samples.

The only real criticism of this tour was that on the website there was a mention of matched wine and cheese tasting, however no cheese tasting was offered at any point throughout the tour.

Regardless, we all thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We were given a generous selection of wine and felt looked after. Thank you to all the staff members for making this experience so memorable, for all the right reasons. :)

Thank you for the comment on Trip Advisor. It was news to me that there was no cheese tasting as we believed we had it booked at one of the venues where you went for a wine tasting.

My apologies for this shortcoming on your tour, it was unintentional on our part with a misunderstanding with that winery who do tastings for us, either with or without cheese.

As a result we have made a credit to your credit card of $42, being $6pp for the 7 people in your group.

Credits do take a few days to show on your account. The refund was done on the 18th May and thus by about 24th it should appear.

Again, thank you for travelling with us and I apologise for the cheese tasting mixup.

Today my friend Ros and I went on a day tour to the Yarra Valley. The combination of wine, cheese and chocolate was amazing. We would like to thank Leah and Noddy for a wonderful day. Leah was very informative and helpful. We would have no hesitation in recommending Gowest Tours.
