We booked this last minute and were very happy with our decision. We got picked up from the Melbourne CBD and driven by Paul in a clean and comfortable mini van. There was 13 in the group. Went to 3 excellent wineries and 1 good winery. It was a great day. The only way to improve the day would be to go somewhere that sells cheese or chocolates

There were 10 of us on the trip, and we knew each other really well by the end - great way to meet people from all over. The guide, Dave, was friendly and knowledgeable, and was an excellent host to us all. We saw some very nice places, and tasted some very nice wines and ciders. Highly recommended, even if you are not a wine buff. We ended the day with alot more knowledge about wines and the wine making process, and also had some nice wines and cider to enjoy over our time in Melbourne.

We booked out tour based on reviews and were not disappointed at all. We booked last minute, and they were still able to accomodate us. We learned a lot about various wines from our knowledgable and enthusiastic guide and the various winery staff. We were also able to purchase several wines and the last stop on our tour is shipping us wine to Canada for a very decent price! Fantastic!

We booked Winebus because of other Trip Advisor reviews and we're not disappointed. Paul picked us up near our hotel and drove to Yarra Valley for a full, delightful day of touring. Paul is knowledgeable, witty and a known operator to the wineries so we got great treatment. The wines and scenery were marvelous. if you enjoy wines, particularly whites and sparkling ones, great company and wonderful views of the Victory countryside, take a Winebus tour with Paul.

We didn't want to take a huge bus with a large group being herded through some wineries. At the tourist office at Federation Square a picked up some brochures and called Wine Bus late at night the day before the tour. Booking was quick and easy. This first impression continued throughout the whole tour the next day. Paul knows his wine-stuff and brought us to diverse wineries from high class to more down to earth. Even cider was included. Lunch was excellent. Most surprising and different from other wine-tours we had taken before, wine flowed freely, so towards the end, things got a bit foggy. Very pleasant, relaxed experience!
