This was an all day tour with a small group of 8 people. I think they take up to 10, just the right amount which made it more enjoyable, very relaxing, and informative. We were taken to the smaller wineries which meant the staff took their time in explaining the wines etc. we stopped for lunch at a winery called... More

Did the small group (only one other couple in this case) Yarra Valley food and wine tour. Nicci was our fabulous guide. A bit of a rainy/overcast day, which detracted somewhat from the beauty of the valley, but otherwise an exceptional tour, well worth the money. Nicki knew her wineries and the key personnel, including the vintners, one of whom... More

Yes a wet and drizzly day, thank you to the Langham for the loan of the umbrellas. What a great reason to visit again when the sun is shining. In Melbourne this could be in winter! Delighted you enjoyed your day in the Yarra Valley. Hope to meet again. Enjoy the rest of your travels. More

One of the top two wine tours I have experienced in Australia. Nicci was knowledgeable, friendly, selected good choices of vineyards and an excellent location for lunch with superb food. Good value for money and overall a memorable day. I do recommend this tour to you.

This was a great experience. It was a small group so we received very personalized attention. We visited a variety of vineyards - from very large to very small - so we had a varied (and generally positive) wine-tasting experience. We also had excellent cheese pairings at the first vineyard (Di Bortoli) and a delicious lunch at another vineyard (Soumah).... More

An excellent up-market wine tour. Much nicer than the larger group wine tour I've taken part in before. All of the wineries we visited we're welcoming, informative and gave us plenty of variety of wine. Our guide, Bill, was fantastic. Well informed, good humoured and happy to let us linger if we wanted to. Bill also had an outstanding music... More

I'm a novice wine enthusiast, but have a difficult time finding whites and sweets at most wineries. A phone call to Bill from the visitors center confirmed he would tailor the tour to his guests, so I took a chance and made my reservation. Best decision ever!
