Bill, our guide, was gracious, friendly and knowledgeable. The ride out to the valley was filled with local information plus listening to a podcast on "what makes good wine vs. bad wine". Brilliant addition! The wineries we were to visit were explained and we were even given choices. There were both large and small wineries. The lunch at Tokar was... More

Thank you Julie. It was great to have you all join us in the Yarra Valley. Even with cloud cover the scenery is amazing. Bill tells me that Mornington Peninsula may be next in your wine region touring. Looking forward to it. More

Thank you for your review . For a personal experience small tours are the way to go. Our tours usually number 6 or 8 guests and it's nice to hear from Bill how well people get on together. No doubt some great wine helps. Sitting on that deck at Tokar in the warmer months and soaking in that view is... More

10/10 - from start to finish our winery tour in the Yarra Valley was tailored to perfection. Nicci was knowledgeable yet down to earth and I could not have chosen a more perfect company to help celebrate my husband's birthday. Thank you so much Nicci - will be recommending you to our friends and family xx Stacey

Where do I begin? Small group, intimate, knowledgeable, etc. etc. etc. Seriously, lunch was 5 star in a winery. Bill, our guide, was gracious, warm, friendly... everything you expect from the Aussie "down under". Family run, passionate wineries were the order of the day. Awesome!
