Having recently done a few winery tours in Spain and Italy we decide rather than driving ourselves as we had done once before many yrs ago in the Yarra Valley we would take a tour. We were picked up on time from our inner city hotel and driven to the Valley with informative commentary along the way. The wineries we... More

Get out of the city and take a trip with Vinetrekker of course! We wanted to visit the Yarra Valley and Stephen, our guide for the day, picked us up from the hotel around 9am and whisked us away for the day. Stephen was very knowledgeable, not only about the viticulture but also about the local history and points of... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Mornington Peninsula! Garth was a great tour guide and we were fortunate enough to have a great group of people to share the experience with! Beautiful weather, lovely wine and tasty food. Thank you for the experience!

We have been on some shoddy wine tours in the past so were a little cautious when we booked this one. However we were bowled over by the professionalism, knowledge and personality of our host, Stephen. The wineries were of obvious quality, the lunch was amazing (beautiful surroundings and delicious food served by very pleasant people.) Can't reccommend this company... More

Joined Stephen on his tour to Yarra valley yesterday. We were greeted by names at all times, he was knowledgable of both region and vineyards and his effort in making everyone feel included and interested was terrific. The diversity of both small boutique vineyards towards the bigger Chandon was perfect. You are paying for what you get. Terrific service, personal... More
