    An amazing day. Sean is a very friendly and charismatic tour guide. He has an excellent knowledge of the local area. Some amazing food and a wide variety of wines and beers to sample. Comfortable bus with a safe driver. A lovely group of people on our tour. A great opportunity to share experiences and local knowledge with others who are travelling around similar places. If you are going to do a tour of the Yarra Valley, make it with Dancing Kangaroo Tours. 10/10 would recommend

    Sean the owner DK Tours was Awesome. He was very caring (let a guy go to the bathroom before the long drive out), told interesting stories, good sense of humor, played upbeat music, nice variety of wineries, and a great brewery to finish the tour. I've been on many tours (France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, and US) This was the Best tour I have ever been on. I would to go again when back in Melbourne!

    Despite the iffy weather, this wine tasting tour was totally awesome! Booked with Dancing Kangaroo tours and was not disappointed. The driver was Sean and he is also the owner/operator. He is a wealth of information regarding the area, history and vineyards/wines. His narration during the drive was far from boring! He's a natural speaker - full of facts delivered with fun and interest. Highly recommend this tour!

    I was on this trip solo as my husband was at a convention but the group couldn't have been any friendlier! I knew from the moment our host Sean closed the doors of the van and set off that this was going to be a great day. Everyone was ready for fun and Sean saw to it that we enjoyed every minute, especially our time in the van between stops. Each stop was wonderful but I have to say that the meal was really fantastic.. So fresh and delicious in such a gorgeous setting. There was such a variety with the wine, cheese, food and chocolates. And Sean brings so much amazing energy to the day. It was worth every penny. Don't hesitate. If you like wine, food and fun you MUST do this trip.

    Sean who owns and runs Dancing Kangaroo Wine Tours was so much fun. He knows and understands the Yarra Valley and his knowledge of wine making was excellent. He is very passionate about the YarraValley and wine, and it showed. Thank you Sean for a wonderful day.

    We enjoyed our Christmas Eve wine tour. The guide was very welcoming and tried very hard to ensure that everyone had a good day. We enjoyed our lunch and the main places we visited. The wineries and the brewery were very good but I found the visit to the chocolate manufacturer to be very busy and a bit hectic. We did all enjoy our day and would recommend this tour.
