Reviews

An excellent personal tour of the Yarra Valley. We were lucky as being the only four people on our tour and Walter, our leader, was brilliantly accommodating in where we went and what we did. An excellent day out.

great tour for the price! I spent some time researching Yarra Valley wine tours for some time, and I have no regrets choosing this one. The bus driver was punctual, friendly, and relaxed which made for an enjoyable day that went at our own pace. We went to Domaine Chandon, as well as some nearby wineries including Oakridge, Yering Station, and Punt Road. All of the tasting costs were covered in the tour price. I booked this tour through the Big Bus Tour and received a discount for subscribing to their youtube channel! at around $60 for a day of visiting wineries, tasting wines, and having lunch at a great burger place (which had vegan and gf options), it was well worth!!!
