We had an excellent day-long tour of the Yarra Valley with Vinetrekker. All of the selected wineries were great. Vinetrekker is one of those tour companies that is truly deserving of its high ranking on Tripadvisor.

Great experience. Our guide Paul was really passionate, knowledgeable and always made us feel really comfortable. We learned so much from him in just a few hours. You could tell that Paul is a kind and generous soul and has acquired long term relationship and connections with the people at the Yarra Valley, which made the experience even more special. […] We would not change anything about this tour and will definitely come back with friends.

What a wonderful day out exploring the Macedon Ranges. Visiting two truly cold climate vineyards where we were treated to some amazing wines in the most picturesque setting with our guide, Paul sharing his love and knowledge of wines. Onto Kyneton for a delicious lunch. Our Vinetrekker Tour was just the most perfect way to explore this neck of he woods.

Our morning visit to the Healesville Sanctuary exceeded our expectation to see Australian native animals since we had a free guided tour with some recent graduates from a local university who knew everything about the flora and fauna. The afternoon lunch and wine tasting, made the day completely superb. The Yarra Valley is not to be missed.

The wineries we visited were wonderful and the wines we sampled were delicious. It was a pleasure to meet the owners and find out the history of how each winery was developed. Thank you so much to Paul, Granite Hills, Cobaw Ridge, Curly Flat and Hanging Rock wineries for a very special and unforgettable day.
