“A Day in Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

My wife Mary and I spent the day with two other couples and Paul, exploring the Yarra Valley Wine Country. The trip exceeded our expectations. The conversation, learning experience, countryside, winery's and food were beyond anything we could have imagined. You will not be disappointed in this trip, unless the weather does not cooperate. But after the third winery tasting, you won't know the difference! Thanks for a fantastic day Paul! Todd.

Thanks Todd & Mary for the review of your weekend tour to the Yarra Valley and thrilled it exceeded your expectations. It was terrific to have you on board and you both bought wonderful spirit and enthusiasm to the day. It's a world class destination without doubt and one we never tire of showing off to visitors. All the best and hope you're back here again soon.

“Beyond expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

We booked vinetrekker for a tour of the mornington peninsula vineyards. We booked a group tour but were lucky enough to be the only ones on the tour that day. Our tour guide was Stephen, he was extremely knowledgeable of the area and made sure the day was both educational and entertaining. His love and passion for wine was evident and this enriched our tour. We stared at Moorooduc, then continued onto Willow creek and had a lovely lunch there at Seldix, from there we went to Stonier and finally visited Red Hill cheese and Mornington Peninsula chocolates. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience the wines of the region.

Thanks for a great day! (Hannah and Aron)

Thanks Hannah & Aron for your review and delighted the day exceeded expectations. You lucked out in terms of having the tour exclusively to yourselves so that was probably the first indication of what a great day was ahead of you. It's a well balanced day to have the chocolates and cheese round out the day after the 3 vineyards and the superb Salix lunch. Am sure it was one of your memorable birthdays Aron. Thanks again for the business and well organised Hannah.

“Fantastic Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

What a fabulous day for food, wine & chocolate.

Stephen, our guide was great. We loved each of the wineries we visited for many different reasons and the additional stops to the chocolate makers and cheese makers were the perfect way to round off the day.

The luch was excellent in a beautiful setting. Also, being picked up at our front door was definitely an added bonus.

Thanks for a memorable day.

Thanks Mark & Caroline for taking the time to review your tour to the Mornington Peninsula and delighted it was such a success. Good fortune that you were the only ones booked and we could collect you from home. It's a well balanced day and having someone as passionate as Stephen to show you around can only enhance the experience. We're pretty particular about the quality of the lunch and Salix can always be relied upon to surpass our guests' expectations. Thanks again for the booking and hopefully we'll see you on board our tour to the Yarra Valley or Macedon Ranges.

“Great day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

There is a reason why these tours get 5/5 every time. I strongly recommend this tour to anyone. It was the highlight of our trip. Steve who took us round was so great. The scenery was amazing and only an hour away from melbourne. Do this. Do this. Do this

Having a guide as professional and customer focused as Steve is a wonderful enhancement to the day and the respect in which he's held by the different properties sets the day up nicely. Thanks again for the business, it was greatly appreciated. All the best.

“A superb day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

From the booking process to the actual trip, the overall experience with Vinetrekker was excellent.

We decided to take a day tour with Vinetrekker to the Yarra Valley and what a day - Our guide, Stephen was hugely knowledgable about Melbourne, Victoria, as well as the Yarra Valley, and the 6 vineyards that we visited we're great - All totally different, all with their own characters and with breathtaking scenery. The lunch supplied was to a very high standard and once again, was surrounded by amazing views.

I would definitely recommend anyone who loves wine to take a tour from Vinetrekker, as I know you will not be disappointed.

Thanks Kath for reviewing your recent tour to the Yarra Valley and so pleased it was everything you expected plus some. It's a great destination that showcases wonderful food (Yering Station), terrific wines and beautiful scenery. And when you've got staff of a high calibre who have a strong customer focus, it's a strong combination. Lovely to know you've left Melbourne with great memories and hope you get the chance to return. All the best and thanks again.
