Absolutely loved the smaller more upmarket group wine tour. From our guide Bill to the choice of wineries and the exquisite lunch at Tokar Estate, everything lived up to their brochure. We were 4 in the group and it was a fabulous day! Thank you especially to Bill!

Had an awesome day visiting wineries in the Yarra Valley complete with delicious lunch and well informed commentary. Bill was an excellent friendly host and I particularly appreciated the assistance getting in and out the van being wheelchair confined. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Thank you for taking the time to review. It was a pleasure to have met you all. Good luck with building your wine cellar. You have definitely got the Yarra Valley covered for your selection. We had a great day too. Hope the snow and GOR was fun. See you when you are next in Melbourne. More

This was a great tour! There were only 8 people on our trip, which made it a lot nicer than the big 20+ person tours we saw at some of our stops. Bill, our driver and guide, was extremely knowledgeable about wine and the Yarra valley. He even went out of the way to make sure all of us Americans... More

A fabulous day exploring family owned wineries totally focused on customer service and showcasing the wines that are produced from grapes grown on their own property. Expect to be introduced to the wines from the winemaker or owner and enjoy exclusive cellar door tastings. Lunch menu at Soumah was delicious with enough choice to please everyone - the slow cooked... More

Our leader Bill was knowledgeable, friendly, obliging, and took us to some really special wineries. The scenery was great, the travel safe and comfortable, and the time frame right. We left at nine in the morning, and returned just after mid afternoon (our choice), having been wined and dined at a couple of impressive venues. We learnt lots about the... More
