Our wine tour was fantastic - small group, very engaging guide Bill, lots of delicious wine and food... but mostly wine!
The Yarra Valley itself is gorgeous and home to lots of wonderful vineries. We were fortunate to experience a handful of great ones, and meet the owners and winemakers for most. In one, we got really lucky and got to see the mobile bottling truck - not something you see every day!
Besides being engaging, funny, and entertaining, our guide was very helpful in framing the day and helping those of us with limited luggage space decide where to buy bottles to bring home!

Hard to believe what gorgeous vineyards are just beyond the skyscrapers of Melbourne! Our driver Bill was extremely knowledgeable and adapts easily to changes by owners to ensure your day is full and absolutely one of the best of your holiday. Even if you are not a wine drinker, the beauty is not to be missed. We purchased a bottle at each winery as every stop was unique and had something we wanted or a gift for someone on our souvenir list. Wouldn't have missed this excursion for anything!

Our tour guide, Nickie was outstanding in her knowledge of the wineries and kept our tour on track with respect to having the right amount of time to visit each winery for tastings. Our lunch venue was a beautiful setting and the food was quite good. A perfect day!

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.
