Owner description: Yarra Valley Wine Tasting Tours specialises in small personal wine tours from Melbourne to Victoria's Yarra Valley. We operate a daily wine tour on board of our luxury Mercedes Benz vehicles, maximum 14 or 16 people, where our passengers will enjoy the best of the Yarra Valley. The main highlights of the tour include visits and wine tastings at 4 top Yarra wineries, including Domain Chandon, a restaurant lunch with a glass of wine with lunch, a visit to the quaint Yarra Valley Dairy to sample their handmade cheeses as well as stops at the White Rabbit Brewery to sample beer and ciders and the new Yarra Valley Chocolate company. The tour will be conducted by one of our team of experienced drivers/guides; Alex, Anthony, Ben, Christian, Geoff or Sasha - all of whom have earned many favourable reviews from other Trip Advisor members. This tour is a great way to experience the best of the Yarra. Join us for wine, champagne, beer, cider, cheese, chocolates and a great day out!

“What a find!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Toured the valley with ten mates from WA. From the time I booked to the time we finished, the company couldn't have been more professional. I had been before but this tour had that bit extra. More personable and hassle free.
Christian our tour leader was unbiased and showed great passion. Would highly recommend for wine lovers and others alike.

“Fantastic value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

great value day out. Christian the tour leader interacted well with the very distinct age groups on the tour - he is a great tour leader. The itinerary was fantastic, great variety of food and wine, even though we were only there for the wine. Would definitely do it again.

“Amazing tour experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

My friend and I were visitng Melbourne last week and booked a one day tour ($120 pp - excellent value) to the Yarra Valley. The moment we arrived at the nominated pick-up point and meet Christian we knew we made the right decision on tour operators. I have a real dislike for "chessie" tour guides that like the sound of their own voices and constantly make terrible jokes. Christian was not one of those guides. He really knew his stuff, gave detailed and useful information, all with a great sense of humour. We had a total of 12 in our great which based on the vehicle would be about the capacity for this tour.

I had already been to our three first stops (Yeering Station, Domain Chandon and Cheese Factory) but I still thought the day was amazing. The day was organised well so that even at places like Domain Chandon that, seem to attract huge crowds, we got great attention with prompt tasting etc. The chocolate stop at the end of the day was a real highlight!

The lunch we had at Rochford Wines was excellent.

I highly recommend all visitors to Melbourne do this tour.

“Fantastic Day Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Wonderful introduction to the Yarra Valley and met some great people as well, would take the tour again! Christian our tour guide was informative and obviously has a great rapport with the wineries we visited. He guided us without pressure on time or purchases. Thanks for a fantastic day out!

“Brilliant day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Usually my boyfriend and I don't like organized tours but we've seen the very interesting program and decided to give it a go.
It was a great day and our guide Christian was just the cherry on top!
We had an amazing time visiting and tasting both wines and foods, we loved the brewery and Christian managed to create such a nice atmosphere during the day!
I highly recommend the tour, it was an amazing experience!
