We had a terrific time in the Yarra Valley and on Phillip Island and could not have asked for better guides than Paul, who escorted us through the wildlife sanctuary and the vineyards, and Joseph, who took us safely and efficiently to see koalas and tiny penguins. Both guides were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and very careful to assure that our... More

A great way to explore the Yarra Valley vineyards in a small group (4) with a knowledgable driver. We have previously explored the area in a larger group but would recommend this tour as it is much more friendly and personalised. We spent a full day being escorted by our driver Stephen to some great vineyards for superb wine tastings.... More

Thanks Toptown for reviewing your recent Yarra Valley Food and Wine Daytour and I'm delighted to hear it was such a success. Small group touring provides a much better experience than the larger group tours and once you've experienced it, there's no real alternative. Also, I'm really happy you felt the day offered terrific value. I'll be sure to pass... More

I contacted several companies before deciding to go with VineTrekker for a day tour to the Yarra Valley with family who were visiting from out of town. The initial time spent with me on the phone answering all of my questions as well as the wealth of information provided by Paul made me feel confident I had gone with the... More

There are lots of wine tours available around Melbourne but is a great one to choose. Small groups, different small vineyards and a nicely paced day. Yes it may be a little more expensive than others but you get what you pay for.
