Full day of experiences, helping local fruit producers, cheese makers and 3 visits to stunning wine producers. Lunch was a stand out, simply gorgeous food. Ending day with chocolate tasting was a treat too and great way to cap the day off

This tour was a great day out and introduction to the fabulous Yarra Valley, especially for my visiting friend from NZ. The region has not been affected by the recent bushfires and it's as gorgeous and green as ever.
Juliet, our driver and guide, added spice to the day with relaxed humour; she was very informative and professional.
Everything ran like clockwork and we spent just the right amount of time in each location before moving on to the next.
The wineries selected were beautiful, each with their own unique flavors and style; it was hard to pick a favourite.
For food and drinks requiring refrigeration, cooler bags/eskies were provided in the vehicle for storage during the trip.
Definitely a worthwhile day trip from Melbourne for both locals and visitors.

Our tour was lee by Joel - a fantastic driver and guide. He was polite and energetic throughout the tour although he might be tired with driving and taking care of almost 20 ppl. The bus is nice and clean, coming with free wifi as well. I was travelling with my parents thus motion sickness was our biggest concern. However we didn’t experience any at all. With good weather and nice pace, we got to enjoy wine tasting and cheese/diary/fruits tasting. The lunch is also high-quality (I recommend beef brisket) nicely paired with wine. The tour ends with gourmet chocolate tasting; none of my family is sweet eater but we ended up buying bunch of gourmet chocolates because they were so good! Definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Melbourne.

Had the pleasure of two Go West Tours in 2018 (Phillip Island and Great Ocean Road), it was our first visit to Australia. We were fortunate to have Rachael as our tour guide for both trips, friendly, informative and she has a genuine passion for her job. Her infectious humour and professionalism made an indelible mark. Roll on to 2022, and after an agonising wait we were able to return to Victoria, even better Rachael was back with Go West ! Really enjoyed the Yarra Gourmet tour, ideal day tour to give you a flavour (literally) of what the region has to offer. Can recommend Go West without hesitation and look forward to our return in January 2023 (Grampian tour next, make a note in your diary Rachael).

We really appreciate your repeat business, Allenrural! It is reasonably rare that we get the pleasure of hosting any guests on more than one occasion, so we're always really happy to have anyone return to tour with us a second time. We'll definitely look forward to seeing you again in 2023 and will do what we can to make sure you're reunited with Rachael once more.

I enjoyed the group of people on my tour. The places we visited were well chosen & gave a range of the Gourmet delights available within the Yarra Valley. The hosts at our chosen venues were very informative & certainly engaged the Group of participants. The fruit, cheese, wines, chocolate & ice creams sampled were well chosen, & very yummy. It was lovely to view some of the magnificent country side of Yarra Glen & the surrounding side. Also during the trip we were given a good commentary of some of significant sights, & history of region. Then there was Cloe our amazing tour guide. Cloe was simply brilliant, so friendly & cheery. Cloe answered many queries in a warm friendly manner, showing empathy & understanding. Cloe was also flexible in time spent at each venue, ensuring every person had sufficient time to ask questions or procure goods.

Go west tour eco wine day trip. Unfortunately air con on bus not working and temp was 35 outside.imagine temp in bus with 16 people would have been at least mid 40s. Terribly uncomfortable and avoidable. Sarah our tour operator was lovely but another bus would have been more acceptable. Took away the well organised trip it was supposed to be. Unfortunately that reflects on what could have been a good rating.

We regret that this guest travelled on a day when the air-conditioning unit on our tour vehicle developed a fault early in the day, making the afternoon homeward journey quite uncomfortable for our guests. The situation could definitely have been handled better, as our tour guide neglected to contact our Operations team to advise them of the issue. Had our Operations team been made aware, a replacement vehicle would have been provided, avoiding the discomfort experienced by the group. We are following this up with the guide involved to ensure a better level of communication in the future, as there's absolutely no doubt that this situation was entirely avoidable. The air-con fix was a pretty simple one and the repair was made the following day, returning the vehicle to full working condition.

We had our Yarra trip with Sally, who is very passionate, energetic and cheerful. She made our fabulous day with her well designed music play list. She is a talented driver and story teller too !

The trip covers local farm shop with tasting session, 3 vineyards, 2 inclusive wine tasting another 1 optional session at AUD5 (it is good to be optional as we have different alcohol level), lunch at one of the vineyards, dairy farm with tasting, plus chocolate factory with tasting session too !

We got some nice local fruit product at farm shop, amazing cheese at dairy farm (Go west has prepared 2 ice boxes on the bus, nice touch!), some wines as well!

Tour guides can make a different to the tour , and everyone we met (including the girl that pick us up at our hotel to meet sally) has been passionate! Recommended!

We regret that we didn’t join go west for great ocean road tour, the one we joint was good, but we guess go west can make it even more fun!

It was a lovely day. My family and I had such an amazing time. The wineries were beautiful, the wine was great! The lunch was delicious and the chocolates were perfect! Special shout out to Leonie, our tour guide, who was very lovely. She was very helpful, friendly, and chill. The destinations were amazing, but we also had a lovely time on the road because Leonie's driving was great and she really tried to help us enjoying the journey. Thank you Go West! Definitely recommended.
