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! Don't even get me started on the mixed 'tape' (yes showing my age) on the... More

First class service, transport and knowledgeable friendly guide who went the extra mile to make our day perfect. Bill is an ex gold miner and just the character to bring a small group of people that started out strangers and make them leave as friends by days end. This company takes the trouble to avoid the crowds and makes sure... More

Absolutely perfect day. Our guide Bill was knowledgeable, witty and very flexible allowing us input into some of the tour aspect. Lunch was extremely good with a beautiful setting overlooking the vineyard. Great tastings and delightful company. What more could you want.

Like so many others who have already commented, a day out with Nicki and the Epicurean experience is a day that will live long in the memory, even though we tasted far too many first class wines and beers. We would like to thank Nicki for her patience, sobriety, knowledge and great humor throughout the trip, she made the whole... More

A fantastic day out in the Yarra Valley with Epicurean Tours. Our host Bill was very knowledgeable and had answers to every question, without overwhelming us with unwanted information. We were given a choice of a number of wineries / breweries in the afternoon which was an unexpected benefit of this small tour group. The cheese matching and lunch were... More

This was an excellent trip from beginning to end. During the day our small group visited a host of different vineyards. Particularly pleasant was the time spent at some of the smaller venues. This provided a much more intimate tasting. Our driver Bill was superb. He was highly knowledgable and shared a great deal of information about the wine industry... More
