Paul was our guide and he was very attentive, patient and full of really good information about the area, wine and all things Melbourne. We were fortunate to be on the tour with a young Malaysian Couple who was residing in Hong Kong and on vacation in Melbourne. We hit it off immediately. A great day filled with yummy wines,... More

Following an international medical meeting in Melbourne our hotel concierge suggested Vinetrekker for us to explore nearby wineries and wine country. We signed up first for a day tour to Mornington Peninsula, and another tour to Yarra Valley for the following day. Paul was our guide for the former, Stephen for the latter. Both of these guys are terrific people,... More

On-time pickup from hotel. Comfortable coach with sufficient supply of bottled water. A refreshing start at the Wildlife, Healesville Sanctuary. A few highlights at the Sanctuary (when compared to the Moonlit Santuary @ Philip Island tour): - Get to see more variety of Australian animals e.g. Tasmaniam devils, marsupials, platypus, pelicans, reptiles etc. - There is a bird show (must...

Thanks Shaney for reviewing your recent Yarra Valley Wildlife and Wine Daytour and I'm delighted the whole experience received two thumbs up. It's a lovely combination of animals in the morning followed by wine and food, especially if the idea of tasting at 5 vineyards appears a little daunting. Because of the good relationships we've developed, we expect the service... More

Paul was an amazing host, and made our day a wonderful, informative and enjoyable trip. He took us to wineries that we would have otherwise missed, and was full of information and interesting tips. Great lunch, too. Well worth it, a must-do. Highly recommended. Thanks for a great day!

We had an absolute blast. The best experience and very nice people on the tour with us. Stephen our driver was brilliant. He knew alot about wine and the Yarra Valley. Our lunch at Yering Station was delicious. Such a beautiful place and so close to Melbourne. Who knew? You can't go wrong with this tour. Will recommend to everyone.
