    Loved it! Our tour guide/driver was fantastic as were the hosts at each of the wineries. Lunch was classy and very very delicious. The choices were yummy! I would definitely recommend this tour.

  • Theo C (12/6/2018) - Via TripAdvisor

    Ian was fantastic and very flexible. He was a delightful guide who cracked a few jokes and coped with 17 loud and excited mums who escaped their chores and families for the day! The wineries were gorgeous and lunch was devine! It was an unforgettable experience and Ian was always keeping us up to date with how long between wineries and time of departures. I would highly recommend wine bus and ask for Ian. Wow!

    I had such a wonderful Monday, joining a small group of ladies from Canada for a Yarra Valley Winery Bus Tour. Ian, our driver was amazing and the lunch at Tokar was the best choice! I definitely recommend this tour! Greetings from Perth!
