This was an easily set-up day trip. We called the day before, and were able to schedule the tour we wanted. Steven, our guide, was prompt, and the van comfortable for the 10 participants. We visited 5 winerys, learned some interesting data about wine making in the valley, and saw beautiful scenery. The wines ranged from fair to excellent. There... More

Thanks Blondeoverblues for taking the time to review your recent Yarra Valley Food and Wine Daytour, it's greatly appreciated. The Valley at present is looking delightful with some warm weather following the rain and there's plenty of optimism around regarding the next harvest. With your interest in chocolate, maybe our Mornington Peninsula Food and Wine Daytour would have been a... More

Awesome day out, with a guide who really knew his stuff. Wonderful views and a great chance to see outside of the city. And of course, great wine!

The day tour was wonderful. The wineries that we visited were lovely and the wine selection was excellent. It was a nice addition to also visit a chocolatier and cheese shop. A stop for some picture taking of a family of kangaroos along the way was an added bonus. The tour guide, Stephen, was great. He was very professional and... More

Thanks Pamela for your review and your strong recommendation of our Mornington Peninsula Food and Wine Daytour is greatly appreciated. It's a well balanced tour and the inclusion of the chocolates and cheese at the end of the day is a treat. As it doesn't attract the levels of interest that the Yarra Valley does, we love getting down there... More

We normally lean towards private tours, but Vinetrekker offered a small group option that perfectly fit our desires. We were delighted with the tour and the value! Garth, the tour guide, arrived early at our hotel and was a well read and educated gateway to Australia and the Australian wine industry. Everything about the tour is first class: the wineries,...

A great experience from start to finish. Well run, and catering to a wide variety of personality types. Our tour guide Stephen saw that everyone's needs and questions were met and expectations were not just matched but exceeded in all aspects. From basic to advance knowledge this tour showed it's ability to excel at all levels. By the end everyone... More

We had high expectations of Vinetrekker, and Stephen, our guide, took the utmost care and effort to ensure not a single one of our whims go unattended. From ensuring we have the smoothest flow of tastings throughout the day, to doing small things that might very easily have gone unnoticed - like ensuring we have access to the jug of... More

Thanks Pam and wonderful to hear that your recent tour to the Yarra Valley did not disappoint. We're conscious of including a couple of the smaller producers into the day as they provide a terrific contrast to the larger, more well known and commercial operations. We've also structured the day to flow in a way that avoids backtracking and inefficient... More

Did the Yarra valley tour. Small group -only 5 of us so at the vineyards they tailored the discussions and tastings to our preferences but at the same time encouraged us to try different types of grapes and wines. Excellent guide and excellent lunch, well worth the money.

Thanks Joris for reviewing your recent Yarra Valley Wildlife & Wine Daytour and great to hear you had such a wonderful day.

Can thoroughly recommend. Stephen was an excellent guide and the itinerary was varied and interesting. Visited four very different wineries and a fantastic lunch. Saw some bigger tours and can't imagine that would be a comparable experience. Definitely worth the money

Thanks for the review Flora and delighted to hear your recent Yarra Valley Food and Wine Daytour was such a success. The smaller touring options are much more personable and engaging, even though the cost is greater. Stephen is a terrific host and takes excellent care of his guests. Your support was appreciated and thanks for the booking. More

My girlfriend and I love wine, but we are still learning. This tour is perfect for those knowledgeable in wine and beginners too! We chose the Mornington Peninsula Food & Wine Daytour.
