‘What a fantastic day out! Normally I’m sceptical about tours as they can be quite restrictive, however I would thoroughly recommend this one. It’s a jam-packed day with great stops, plenty of time at each, delicious wines and food. Tour guide Charlie made the day with his humour and knowledge.’

    A Great one day tour. Our guide Kate was wonderful. This tour is such value for money. The lunch at the Killara Estate was so enjoyable as was the beautiful scenery. If you love chocolate, wine and beer you will enjoy this tour. A long day but with so many stops at different places it goes so quickly. I would highly recommend this tour.

    We had a great day exploring the Yarra Valley region! Our guide, Safari Pete was funny, friendly, helpful and knew a lot about the region and the produce we indulged in. The cheese we had at the Gateway estate was delish! As well as the spreads they provided! The lunch at Rochford Winery was amazing! It was very tasty and is set in a very nice restaurant. Really enjoyed going to most popular place in the Yarra Valley - the chocolatier! If you are looking for a day tour around the Yarra Valley, this is the tour you need to do!

  • Sharon

    We had a great day in the valley the views were amazing. Pete our driver was very knowledgeable and very funny. Our first stop was a strawberry farm which was very interesting and we had samples of cheese and jams along with strawberry liqueurs to try which were very nice. We moved on to a chocolatier shop which was a dream all the different chocolates to sample and buy. The first winery which was Morgan’s was very enjoyable then we moved on to the Killara estate for lunch and more tasting this was our favourite place Leo was very nice and spent time explaining a lot of things about the wine making process and the lunch there was delicious. The last stop was Punt Road winery which I have to say was our least favourite the man there was very unpleasant and not very professional it made us wish we had ended our tour after the Killara estate. Saying this I would still recommend this tour as all the others made up for the last one and we still had a great day out.

  • Ginny – Via TripAdvisor

    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!

What You Can Expect

Calling all foodies! This fabulous Yarra Valley Wine, Cider, Beer and Chocolate Day Tour from Melbourne is the perfect introduction to the produce and wines that make the Yarra Valley so deliciously special.

Your action-packed day starts with CBD hotel pickups, and by 8am you’ll be on your way to the magnificent Yarra Valley region. Enjoy comfortable air-conditioned transport, complete with special cooler boxes to keep any purchases you make throughout the day safe. Complimentary bottled water is available on board.

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.

Then 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.

As you reluctantly bid the chocolate store farewell, the tour continues on to one of the region’s best-known wineries for lunch overlooking the picturesque vineyard. You’ll also take part in a wine tasting with one of the head winemakers.

Your lunch stop is in the picturesque town of Healesville, where you’ll have free time to purchase a bite to eat (at your own expense).

In the afternoon the tour visits another two wineries for tastings (depending on time), one of which is accompanied by a tasty cheese platter.

This wonderful Yarra Valley Wine, Cider, Beer and Chocolate Day Tour is the perfect introduction to the region. Fabulous wines, generous tastings and the services of a knowledgeable local guide are all part of the deal.
