The first stop on this Yarra Valley Wine, Cider, Beer and Chocolate Day Tour is a famous local farm and produce store. Enjoy a coffee and the chance to sample a range of delicious cheeses, fruits, preserves and liqueurs.

Next, it’s on to a boutique brewery and cider house, where you’ll be treated to generous tastings of the diverse product list.

For something different (but equally delicious!), your next stop is the renowned Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery. Here you’ll get a lesson in how chocolate is made, and sample some of the sweet delights on offer.

    We had the most incredible day touring the Yarra Valley with Charlie as our fun-loving, friendly and knowledgable guide! The tour picked us up and dropped us back to our hotel (all on perfect time!) and we spent 10 hours with a great group of people touring an organic farm and tasting their produce followed by the Yarra Valley chocolate factory, a cider and brewery and 2 wineries with a delicious lunch and game of boules. Such a wonderful day being driven around not having to think about where we were going or who was driving etc. we would highly recommend this tour especially to parents wanting a day outing without kids!! It was perfect!
