The lunch at The Green Olive grove was very tasty as was the strawberries at the farm we visited. Highly recommend tour.

Fantastic tour to Mornington Peninsula!

Kudos to Bunyip for having such a dedicated, hardworking and energetic tour guide! He's none other than Paul. He takes great effort to explain in detail at every scenic spot.

I highly reccomend this tour!

Excellent

Hosted by Kurt, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly.
A great day out of the city of Melbourne, lovely food and a broad spectrum of wines to sample.
My personal favorite the Yering's George just lovely, wish i had purchased more than 1 bottle.
The visit to Chandon also memorable.

Great Day!

Thoroughly enjoyed this day with guide Tony. Delicious lunch at Balgownie Estate. Bubbly at Domaine Chandon. I would have liked to have visited the YV Dairy or somewhere to taste cheese in between, but very good.

Discover the vineyards of the Yarra Valley as you sample premium regional wines at wineries cellar-door tastings. Plus, upgrade to include a gourmet lunch with wine pairings.
 
Day well spent

Truly a very memorable experience. On such tours, the driver-cum-coach can make or mar the trip and we were lucky to get a good driver-cum-guide. The bus drive was smooth and pleasant. The steam train ride was a very pleasant one, passing through wooded country side. The Yarra valley winery visits were as per the book. The best part was the fine-dining lunch at the Winery. No regrets!

Great tour outside Melbourne

Our driver/guide Paul Chilton is an excellent driver. I always felt safe. He gave an informative commentary as we rode out through the Melbourne suberbs. All of our stops were well planned and we had plenty of time at each venue. I enjoyed the morning tea, experiencing the cockatiels and lunch at the first winery. I personally didn’t care for the wines at the tastings but they were professionally presented and we all had time to taste and shop. It was warm in the valley. I was told it was 120F but I checked the conversion later on Google and found it was 108F. The venues and the bus were air conditioned so the short forays into the warm temp were fine. We had a final stop for ice cream. Paul was very accomadating in getting us all back to our hotels or evening venues. The main reason we took this trip was for the train. Unfortunately, a Diesel engine substituted for the steam because of the weather. It was still a pleasant ride.

Excellent guide, tasting were a bit rushed

As an overall experience, this was really incredible. The tour guide Peter is like a walking Wikipedia and made the trip come alive. The food and service at the Rochford winery was great and the three different wineries were all very different settings. My only disappointment was that the tastings themselves were about 5 minute experiences that sometimes felt rushed and like an inconvenience to the functions going on at each winery.

Puffing billy tour.

This trip was a wonderful day out. 8am pick up at federation square. Coach driver was very informative. We stopped for bush billy tea veggie mite and laminations. The puffing billy train ride over the mountain takes approximately 30 mins. Arrive back at 1 pm where you can continue your day out with a trip to Phillip island .

Excellent Yarra valley wine and food tour

Fantastic day in the Yarra valley. Paul has fantastic local knowledge and re pore with the vineyards and wineries we visited. I have been on several wine tours and this one was a level above all previous tours, 10 out of 10. If you have a spare day when visiting Melbourne I highly recommend this tour.

Amazing tour of Yarra Valley and vineyards

We decided to experience the country side near Melbourne and beautiful vineyards of Yarra Valley and it turned out to be a wonderful choice to have opted for Vinetrekker. The Yarra Valley was beautiful and with it being just around 60 kms from Melbourne, it was a very relaxed day trip.

Stephen was fantastic and ensured each individual was taken care of very well. This was a small group and that meant we had quite a high level of personalized conversations. Stephen picked some amazing places for us to see with some very charming vineyards like Medhurst and Chandon. The lunch at Yering Station was a highlight and kudos to Stephen for his deep knowledge and enthusiasm. A very affable gentleman!

Great tour of Yarra Valley vineyards

We had a brilliant day touring Yarra Valley with Paul. He was really friendly and very knowledgeable. Paul took us to some smaller wineries which the bigger tours might overlook. His great contacts meant we were able to meet the winemakers and have great conversations about their delicious wines and the history of their vineyards. Would thoroughly recommend!

Third time back to Melbourne.
Great tour guide Sam took us to the Yarra Valley tour visiting Coldstream Cheese shop, Local fruit and jams at Yarra Farm Fresh, 3 wineries: Rochford, Yering Station & DeBorteli as well as the Yarra Valley Chocolatier.
It was so much fun and Sam made our tour enjoyable. I would recommend this company to anyone and we will be back next time to do another tour.

Good Wine Tour

Very enjoyable wine tour. If you're someone who enjoys their wine then this the tour for you because you'll be drinking a lot of it. You also get to visit some farms that sell fruits and cheese which is a nice addition as it feels good to support them and their produce is very good. Graham our tour guide was also great. 

The best of the Yarra Valley in one memorable day

We booked the Yarra Valley Food and Wine tour - not quite one of the options listed by TripAdvisor. It was excellent value and as full and varied a day as you could hope for. Our guide and driver - Sam - was relaxed but effective and took us to a 5 venues over the course of a long day. Highlights for me were 1) wine tasting at de Bortoli where a wide assortment of interesting wine were explained and sampled in congenial surroundings; 2) lunch at Bertholds - with food of much higher quality than expected and 3) the Yarra Choclaterie which was fascinating, generous and had also got superb ice-cream. Overall a perfect tour and highly recommended.

For wine, cheese and chocolate lovers!

Well balanced leisure tour, full of attractions( gourmet- in the title!), nothing rushed...
Leonie the guide was naturally friendly and very efficient in leading the group in a busy Good Friday! We highly recommend it for generous and high quality goods offered , private wine tastings, the Rochford winery lunch was top class, plenty of options!

Two wine tastings, a delicious winery lunch, and convenient round-trip transportation are included.
 
Great experience

Great experience. Our guide Rob was awesome. The food and wine were all fantastic. We got to see kangaroos up close at the sanctuary.

Unique and enjoyable experience!

We had a wonderful time on our trip through the Yarra Valley. Rob was our guide and he really seemed to enjoy showing us around. His personal experience with Australian wildlife was very helpful while we were touring the Healesville Animal Sanctuary, as we had many questions for him. No matter how odd the question, he usually had an informative answer, plus a hilarious story to go along with it. Ask him about his surfing dog, what a talent! 🙂

Great way to spend the day

Spent the day driving through the Yarra Valley and visiting the Healesville animal sanctuary. Although we had rain in and off, our guide Rob made our day enjoyable with his enthusiasm and supply of umbrellas. He was very knowledgeable about the region and was quick point out sites and kangaroos along the way. The wine tasting was delightful and the lunch delicious. My absolute favorite was the cheese and wine pairing at a second winery.

Wine Tour with Vinetrekkers

Our tour was with Adrian of Vinetrekkers. Very experienced and knowledgeable Tour Guide.We went to several "high end" wineries with an outstanding lunch at a winery that had a special event going on where Helicopters flew in a large party. We enjoyed the wines that were premium and the knowledge of the wine hosts. The winery that stood out was at Medhurst Estates, which we ended up shipping a case back to the US. We signed up for the animal tour at the Sanctuary but couldn't go because it was 110 degrees that day. Vinetrekkers did give us a credit for that part of the tour. If I ever return to Melbourne, this tour will be at the top of my list.

Yarra Valley Balloon Flight and Winery Tour

Global Ballooning Australia

Address: Yarra Valley Global Ballooning Australia

Phone: 0061 (87) 2285 255

Overview
Spend a memorable day in the Yarra Valley, beginning with a magical hot air balloon flight at sunrise! Take in an unforgettable aerial perspective of the beloved region’s rolling hills and vineyards, and then enjoy a champagne breakfast back on solid ground. Tour four of the Yarra Valley’s premium wineries for cellar door tastings, and savor a gourmet lunch at the beautiful Balgownie Estate. Top off the day with a glass of bubblyat the esteemed Domaine Chandon winery.
 
Day of a lifetime

You felt involved from the trip from the minute you booked it. They picked you up from your hotel, warned you about the temperature in the morning, received a confirmation text, and they let you know when they were outside your hotel. Furthermore, you helped with the balloon set up and breakdown, so you felt for a brief moment that you too were a master balloonist. The balloon ride was calm, and extraordinarily beautiful. We even got to see some wild kangaroos watching us float above the valley! The champagne breakfast was very nice, but be warned that there is a brief period of time between the end of the ballooning and the winery tour. Also, if you’re doing the winery tour in summer, bring a jumper or a warm jacket to prepare you for the varied temperature of the day!

AMAZING CREW!! Unforgettable experience

I like to think that my experience was unique because the crew made every effort to help me fulfill my lifelong dream of going ballooning, but I am convinced they would have done the same for anyone. Every employee that I made contact with, online and in person, was professional, attentive, warm, and friendly. The sunrise flight was breathtakingly beautiful and as a pilot myself, I can reassure travelers that safety was the top priority throughout the entire experience. The buffet breakfast at the winery was delicious and had a wide array of options for every dietary preference. Pictures were provided on a USB drive at the end of the trip and I will cherish those beautiful images forever. I cannot recommend this excursion enough! If you're going to go ballooning, might as well go all out, with the best company around, right?!

spectacular views and wonderful crew

Had a wonderful hot air balloon ride, the crew were all lovely, and we helped with the set up and pack up which they made fun. Everyone was very helpful, and shared some amazing stories. Thanks for the wonderful ride, and the best landing (Thanks Ronald). Breakfast was also divine.

Serenity

Fantastic balloon ride, great views and great staff. Very smooth ride, didn't even realise we were up in the air. Lots of 'dad' jokes kept everyone laughing. Well organised and professional. Great how they get the passengers involved to help pack away the balloon, very interesting experience. Global Ballooning staff appeared to be more organised compared to the other balloon companies. When finished, we travelled by bus back to Balgownie Estate for a delicious buffet/champagne breakfast. We continued on a winery tour after breakfast and had an awesome day. Highly recommend this company and the combined tour.

Fun tour! Great to get away from the city!

I absolutely recommend this tour - beautiful location, worth the drive away from the city! The wine was wonderful and all locations unique. The guide was friendly and helpful. Rating 4 stars because we spent far too long at the chocolate location (over an hour), but there was nothing planned there like there were at the other locations (no guide telling us about the place for example).

A great day out in the Yarra Valley

led by the friendly and knowledgeable Simon Q. My partner and I took this tour as we were interested in more than just wine and it did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to sample not only some great wines but also ciders, beers, chocolate and strawberries which all were very tasty, and learn about the area. The only thing I could complain about was having to wake up so early but without doing so we wouldn't have had time to enjoy the valley! Would recommend.

Loved this tour and would recommend to anyone who enjoys great wine,

spirits, beer, and gourmet food. Started off by visiting a lovely green house that grew capsicums peppers and strawberries. After touring the greenhouses, we sampled a lovely platter of fresh strawberries, local cheese, pepper jellies amd spreads, plus strawberry Port, liquer, and cream. Fantastic! Next stop was a Chocolate and Ice Ceam shop. Huge bowls of chocolate greeted us and the products available to purchase was vast. From there we went to a lovely winery situated on top of a hill with a lovely view of the vineyards below. To our great delight there were wild kangaroos in the fields and all of us loved to watch them bound about while we sampled some fine wine. Also had our lunch here with scrumptious jumbo porcini tortellini or wood fired thin crust pizza. Delicious! Our next stop was Napoleon Brewery with ice cold cider and superb cold beers. After that another lovely vineyard in the hills. What a wonderful day and would highly recommend to anyone. 

Great way to see Melbourne's scenic wine region.

Our tour guide David was funny, friendly and knowledgeable and made the day flow so smoothly. There is a range of different places to see including a cider Napoleone, a few vineyards, and the Chocolaterie prepare for a sugar hit so there is something to please everyone.

A classic day in a classic convertible

My sister in law & I knew we were being taken to the beautiful Yarra Valley for our joint birthday that week by our partners, but were surprised when our mode of transport was a classic convertible, our driver and guide was the lovely Emma. It was the best day, everything was at our leisure and no time constraints. Beautiful wines, beers, ciders, a delightful lunch and of course chocolates. Our drive home was just as fantastic, the stereo with Bob Marley and The Stones, singing along and getting the thumbs up from passers by. On behalf of the 4 of us, we cannot recommend Emma and Top Down Tours highly enough and thank you so much for a memorable day and a wonderful birthday surprise.

A fabulous way to see the countryside and try some great Australian wines.

The four of us were over from New Zealand to enjoy a girls' long weekend. When the concert we were going to was cancelled, we decided to book Top Down Tours. The sun was shining and we experienced four wineries and lovely lunch. Emma looked after us well and let us blast the stereo on the way back. We had a special day that we will always remember. My friend and I recommend this tour.

Beautiful day in the Yarra Valley

What a wonderful experience! This was a highlight of our trip to Melbourne because it was personal, different and highly enjoyable. The wineries and brewery were lovely. We can’t wait for our wine purchases to arrive via post.

Thank you for a lovely day Emma. We will definitely tell our friends to seek you out

wineries,great food,kangaroos,and chevy cars.......

As with everyone who takes this tour we had a great time driving through the Yarra Valley, topless. Yes its Melbourne and yes its the middle of winter but with the sun out and coat and beanie on the crisp breeze on your face reminds you your alive...... The choice of vineyards were fantastic and the stories along the way describing the history of each one really added value to the experience.Lunch at Chateau Yearing was superb and the waitstaff deserve praise for there attention to detail.( 1 guest gluten intolerant had gluten free bread freshly made for her,Thankyou Chef) Followed by delish cheese board and more wines at Sticks winery, the whole experience was fantastic. Our group of 4 were looked after by Emma, and we loved the time she allowed us at each winery to make it truly OUR TOUR. We highly recommend Top Down Tours whenever you are in Melbourne.

Food and wine Tour in the City of Melbourne

Great insight to the great restaurants in Melbourne. We visited 3 restaurants each served food and wine for our fixed price walking tour through the city. Great food, one was a little short on the wine tasting. The last restaurant we would have thought that dessert and coffee would have been a better selection for the finish of the night. Overall great comments on the buildings and sights. We will be going back to each of the restaurants for a full 3-course meal.

Absolutely loved this night with delicious food and wonderful wine pairings.

Luisa warmly welcomed us and made the night very enjoyable. We learnt a lot about dining out in Melbourne and loved the three restaurants we visited. The selection of food and wine at each venue was absolutely amazing. Highly recommend this tour!

Great Food Hidden Secrets Tour

We received this as a present not sure what to expect but it truly informative and excellent value food and wine were of amazing quality wines were from mainly sourced locally each venue happy to alter any variation of service wife did not drink red so all happily changed very interesting venues with lots of history would more than likely not even tried any of venues we visited our guide Louisa knew her history of Melbourne and surrounding areas as we had four Americana's on tour overall great experience.

A delicious tour

It was a great way to experience 3 restaurants within 3 hours in one evening. Luisa, our guide had lots of stories to tell about the food scene in Melbourne, and even more information about the 3 places we visited, each of which was very different from the other.

We started off at Taxi Kitchen at Federation Square, where we were served 3 generous portions of modern Aussie grub with lots of Asian influence. That was paired with 3 wines in even more generous quantities.

Absolutely fantastic day out!

Melissa picked us up from our hotel and we headed out into the Yarra Valley for "Bubbles"- what a great way to start our wine tour. We had a truly memorable time, great company and we visited some lovely family-owned wineries for tastings. The Lunch was the icing on the cake. We would absolutely recommend you give it a try!

Absolute value for money

We had a great day, Trevor was an amazing guide! Very knowledgeable and passionate about wine and the region. He accompanied us to six astonishing wineries with highly welcoming and professional hosts. We ended up buying from two! Knowing that they do more tours, we will most likely return. Can't recommend this one enough! Thank you, Trevor!

Wonderful wine tour

Trevor picked us up at the cruise ship area and then picked up 2 more outside of Melbourne for our wine tour of Yarra Valley. I had asked for some special wineries with good pinot noir and a good lunch place with a view. We visited Pimpernel-great; Tokar Estate (lunch) great; Punt Rd.-good wines, St. Hubert-bought late harvest Viognier. We had a fabulous day and drank many good wines, and the company was also great. So glad we had a small group and that he returned us back to the ship in plenty of time. Worth every penny. Highly recommended.

An excellent tour

My partner and I had a wonderful day with John. We were luckily the only ones with a booking, so it felt like our very own tour. John is very knowledgeable about the area (he gave us a history lesson on the city of Melbourne during our drive to Yarra Valley). Being the middle of August, the weather was quite bad. Despite the rain/hail, we still enjoyed the morning tea at Warrandyte State Park. We even saw a wild wombat! Once in the Yarra Valley, John took us to 5 separate tastings that exposed us to a broad range of fine area wines. Thank you John for the fantastic day!

Amazing way to spend our Anniversary.

We spent a great day with Trevor who is an extremely knowledgeable and resourceful host. Each stop was fantastic, the lunch was so enjoyable, I tried many things for the first time on this tour which was lovely. Thank you for making our anniversary so special Trevor, we enjoyed ourselves immensely and look forward to doing another tour with you

Great day

Booked our tour quite late on our trip to Melbourne for the tennis and had a free day to fill.
Trevor our driver and host for the day was very very knowledgeable and a lovely guy too. Our tour was just four people and was a great day.
A nice touch and surprise for our first stop (book and you will find out )
If you want a small group wine tour with a great host and have a great day then book without hesitation

Fabulous Day on the Peninsula!

Trevor was lovely and very knowledgable about the area. Had great relationships with all of the amazing wineries we went to. Didn't feel rushed at all, only regret is we forgot to take photos!

If I could give this 6 stars I would

This tour was above and beyond what I expected. John, our driver was so nice and super friendly he went out of his way to make the day extra special for us. We had a wonderful time in the Peninsula and even seeing some of the sights around Philip Bay. Lunch was incredible and the handmade morning tea was a wonderful touch. I would super recommend the trip to the Mornington Peninsula to anyone and I am sure that they are just as amazing on the rest of their tours.
