What we'll do

Strap yourself in for the most enjoyable Yarra Valley day trip we've found!

Your adventure starts with pick up from Melbourne CBD at 9:30 am. Meet your guide Drew and fellow guests and get to know each other as you create your custom music playlist for the trip. Drew will start the tour by giving you options to choose from including 50 - 70 different wineries, cheese factories, chocolate factories, cider houses, restaurants and breweries. You will then visit at least 4 of these places throughout the day. 

Your day also includes a gourmet cheese platter with up to 5 different cheese to sample. You'll also stop at Drew's secret scenic spot for some BYO (bring your own) snacks, while Drew plays some guitar for you and you hang out as a group. At some point throughout the day, you'll also get to do a bit of wild kangaroo spotting.

A full day of wine tasting, cheese sampling and kangaroo spotting. Seriously, what are you waiting for?!

          Best one day trip I had so far

          Andrew is a great host. He wants us to call him drewww . This is definitely the best one day trip I had so far. Andrew is an excellent singer, we enjoyed his lovely voice along the journey. All the wineries we went were excellent. Btw, the chocolate factory was the best! I don't drink wine/ alcohol very often, but I definitely enjoyed the trip. HIGHLY RECOMMAND!

          By far the best one

          I went to a couple of tours in Melbourne and this is by far the best one. The trip was so relaxing and the host Andrew makes everyone feel at ease very quickly. I would 100% recommend.

          Loved the experience

          I loved the experience - Andrew was very cool, getting the whole group involved, telling stories and even playing acoustic guitar! Such a lovely outing that I would never have done alone. Loved the wines and scenery. Book now!!

          Stands apart for its authenticity and stress-free vibe!

          A wine/cheese/chocolate tour that stands apart for its authenticity and stress-free vibe! Super enjoyable way to spend a day of indulging in local creations of the Yarra region (even to spot a kangaroo...) Andrew makes everyone feel at ease very quickly and the day just gets better after each stop. Recommend 10/10 for solo travellers, friends, family outings or any small group

          A lot of fun

          This outing was a lot of fun. Drew keeps the groups small, and genuinely cares about catering the experience to suit all tastes. There are a lot of options for Yarra Valley tours; this one gives you the sense of being among friends.
