Thanks Joris for reviewing your recent Yarra Valley Wildlife & Wine Daytour and great to hear you had such a wonderful day. The region offers terrific diversity and to be able to combine the native animals with food and wine provides an excellent overlay of what the Valley does best. Thanks for your booking and all the best.
After booking the trip I had a few questions about adding an animal encounter as well as the pick up point as that was not very clear from the booking. I spoke to a representative from Viator who promised to get back to me the day after. I received an e-mail with all the info the next day with all the answers.
Steven picked us up promptly at 8.35 in a spotless and very comfortable van. We were with a group of 8, a couple from England, Sweden and Hong Kong. Half of us went to the sanctuary first, the other half had a full day of wine tasting.
We were dropped of at the animal sanctuary first and Steven made sure to arrange us a volunteer guide and he waited until he was there. He also made him aware of our kangaroo encounter time and off he went to bring the other 4 to their first vineyard.
The sanctuary was great, beautiful place and I saw/ learned a lot about the animals there. We saw koala's, kangaroos, a platypus, Tasmanian devil eating a Wallaby, dingo's and a very fun bird show. I had so much fun feeding and petting the kangaroo, that was a very fun addition to the trip.
We were then picked up at 12.50 again to go to a nearby vineyard. We were so lucky to have picked the most beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky! First wine tasting was great and so easy being on a tour with Steven as they guided us right into a private tasting room.
Lunch after that was in a spectacular place, the view was stunning and the food so very delicious, many choices too. All this while Steven told us more about the area and history of the place. What a nice and respectful man Steven is, we couldn't have asked for a better guide & host!
After this we we went to another vineyard with another round of amazing wines to taste. And big bonus to have this accompanied but a cheese plate that made the wines even better! On our way back into the city was saw three kangaroos hopping through the field, what a great sight!
What a fun day we had, I would not have wanted to miss this in the world, thank you Steven, we had a blast, highly recommend!
Good to hear from you MAJT3470 and thanks for taking the time to review your recent Yarra Valley Food, Wine and Wildlife Daytour. The combination of wildlife and wine is a terrific one and ideal for visitors who wish to see some native animals in a beautiful environment as well as enjoy world class wine and food. In Stephen, we have a very dedicated, professional and well organised guide who works hard to ensure his guests have the best possible experience. He'll be thrilled to know how much you loved the day. Thanks for your support and good travels.
Such a great day, started by visiting the wildlife sanctuary , we were so lucky, we saw a dingo eating a random bird that flew into his area, then got to stroke one that was on its walk, made feeding time with the wallabies and stroked them too, and the Koalas were so active, then made our way to 2 vineyards, the first we had lunch at , which was excellent and second the wine was paired with cheeses, Highly recommend this day out we really enjoyed it
Thanks Lou for the review of your recent Yarra Valley Wildlife and Wine Daytour and we greatly appreciate your strong recommendation. It's a terrific tour that combines native wildlife with great wine and food, two things that are very high on the list of activities for visitors to Melbourne. To interact with the animals and witness the drama in the dingo enclosure are memories that will be long lasting. All the best and thanks for your support.
Thank you Rob for a truly wonderful experience :) you’re knowledge of the region was outstanding! We had so much fun and can’t recommend this tour highly enough!!! Five stars
Thanks for the review Erica and great to hear how perfect your recent tour was. Rob takes such excellent care of his guests, we're becoming accustomed to receiving glowing feedback about him. Thanks for supporting us and we greatly appreciate your recommendation. All the best.
We took a combined wildlife and wine tour. One of the reasons was that it includes two wineries rather than five. We didn’t want to get totally drunk in the end. It turned out to be a wonderful tour. Adrian is so knowledgeable in many aspects of life in Australia not just the wines. The wildlife park was very special with birds show - make sure you don’t miss that. The lunch was perfect, overlooking the valley with excellent choice of high quality dishes. Both vineyards were high quality however we bought many award winning sweet wines at De Bortoli. It’s a very well organized and memorable tour, and we definitely recommend it.
Thank you Anna for taking the time to review your recent Yarra Valley Food, Wine and Wildlife Daytour and so pleased to hear what a wonderful day it was. It's a wonderful tour if you're not looking to visit 5 vineyards and provides a terrific overview of two of the Valley's highlights. Adrian brings a relaxed and personal feel to the tour and is able to keep the day moving without you feeling rushed. Good to see you purchased some excellent wines and know they'll provide you with some long lasting memories of your Vinetrekker tour. All the best and thanks again.
Steve was the perfect wine tour guide.He has a great knowledge of winesand the history of the Yarra Valley.Good value for the money.

An amazing day of food and wine tasting with our guide Stephen. His friendliness in combination with having a small group of eight made the tour fun and personal. Add to that the excellent wines at each of the five vineyards visited that varied in size and the fantastic lunch provided at Yering Station, as well as the paired cheese tatsing offered at De Bortoli Wines and all together it makes for an oustanding experience.
