Not particularly good value Lots of time spent travelling, Guide was enthusiastic, nice person. Some of the vineyards were pleased to see us, others were just going through the motions. Lunch was said to be excellent but really wasn't

A lovely day

We set off from Melbourne to Yarra Valley for a wine tasting tour. The first winery, DeBertoli, was excellent with the cheese pairing. Lunch was excellent. Our driver was friendly, courteous, informative, and helpful. Our tour was on the day of the Melbourne Cup. She found a winery that brought out a television and we tourists were able to watch the race. The con for the tour was that we really didn't need to do the last winery, or even the last two wineries. We had had plenty of tasting and after a while, the wine was "all the same."

The wine tour is well organised and a fabulous experience. A great way to get out of the city and see the Yarra Valley. The wineries are excellent and you get to taste the best wines that are produced in this region. Bill is very friendly and happy to accommodate special requests. Everything is punctual but with plenty of time to enjoy a superb lunch. Highly recommended.

This was a great tour! Our driver Bill was funny and very informative. We went to a variety of wineries ranging from small, boutique to larger, more commercial enterprises. Lunch was delicious and integrated nicely with our wine tasting. Great wines and the first stop wonderful cheeses too.
