    Amazing day! The wines, cheeses, and lunch were delicious, and the views were beautiful. The small group was great - only a few of us on this particular tour and we all, including the tour guide, got along well. We chatted, ate, drank, and laughed our way through the day. Perfect!

    My wife and I took the Yarra Valley Food and Wine Small Group Tour on November 9 and were met by our guide Nikki at our hotel.
    Nikki drove us out of Melbourne to the Yarra Valley providing an explanation of sights we saw along the way. The group of 5 stopped at 5 or 6 wineries where we tasted samples of multiple wines produced at each and had the opportunity to buy any wines we liked. In the early afternoon, we had a very nice lunch served at one of the wineries. The experience was wonderful and made all the better by Nikki.
    We would highly recommend this experience.
