Our guide bill Was great company and had good knowledge of the area and wine making. Everything was covered in the booking costs- tastings, afternoon tea, cheeses and lunch.

Have never been on a proper tour before, however it was a friends birthday and she wanted us to enjoy a wine tour with her, as well as a few other friends. It was great. My wife has food allergies and Nicci informed in advance each of the places we had planned to visit so that there was food available.... More

Thankyou for your glowing review! I remember this happy day and what a fun group you were. We were delighted to host the birthday celebrations and that a good day with a very big cake at Domaine Chandon was had. I think the birthday girl seeing her name in chocolate was a highlight. Hoping we have kicked out the start... More

We decided to take Yarra Valley Food & Wine Tour provided by Epicurean on our Sunday wine-tasting trip as recommended by the concierge at InterContinental Melbourne the Rialto. Bill picked us up from the hotel as scheduled. There were only 4 people in the group which I preferred so we could have our own time to appreciate each place we... More

Picked up from our hotel and taken on a great day of fine wine, food and new friends. The variety of wineries visited was interesting and Bill's knowledge of the area added to the day. The small numbers on this tour mean you enjoy a personalised experience and are able to get to know others during the day.

Perfect day! Epicurean Tours picked us up from our hotel, everything was thought of for a perfect day. A fabulous experience and delivered more than promised. I organized a surprise for my husband and he was more than happy by the experience. First class.

Having only seen inner city Melbourne we were very excited to see the surrounding country side. The experience was easy, entertaining, informative and very very tasty! A fantastic opportunity to experience artisan crafters doing their finest in wine, cheese, jam and dining. The four of us are friends from uni and we were accompanied by two other couples from Germany... More
