Our day was amazing

This year, we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. We had planned a trip to New Zealand, including a tour of the Marlborough wine region. This was cancelled due to travel restrictions, so we decided to tour locally instead. About 2 weeks before our anniversary, I found this tour and thought it would be a lovely way to spend our special day. We were staying in the Yarra valley and organised to be picked up from our hotel. Our wonderful driver, Dave, was there right on time to start our day. We visited and sampled wines from five wineries as well as cider and gin at other locations. Our lunch at Domaine Chandon was delicious, as was the flight of sparkling wines which went with it. Throughout the day, we were treated like royalty, by Dave and all of the staff at the various venues. We tasted a lot, learned a lot and enjoyed every minute. Thanks to Jennefer and Dave for organising a wonderful tour around some of the great, small vineyards of the Yarra Valley. Thanks to Dave for his great knowledge of the region and the wineries and his willingness to add another quick stop at the Coldstream Dairy to buy some cheese. Our day was amazing and we would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a little bit of spoiling.

I was gifted this tour as a Mother’s Day present and couldn’t have been happier with the experience. My travelling companion for the day and I hadn’t seen each other for a while due to lockdowns etc, and this day was just what we needed to catch up and relax, as everything was taken care of prior to the day by our wonderful host/driver Jennefer. She was on time, knowledgeable about the area, and happy to accommodate our last minute choices on the day. Lunch at Chandon was a definite highlight-the food was excellent as was the Champagne. All the other wineries we visited were extremely accommodating and we came home well stocked for future catch ups. Highly recommend this experience for anyone who enjoys good food and wine!

From start to finish, an incredible experience. David is friendly and professional, and was able to tailor the itinerary throughout the weekend to make sure that the trip hit every highlight. Already planning a return booking with my partner, and will be recommending as a must-do of any visit to Melbourne.

Jenn was friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. She took my husband and I around to several venues in the Yarra Valley; a few of which were completely new to us. She was flexible with our drop off location and always willing to make our experience as comfortable as possible. We had a lovely day and cannot wait to return to some of the wineries she introduced us to. Would definitely recommend.

I wanted to treat my partner to a special day out and this was the perfect way to do so!
David was an incredible tour guide and took us to wineries he thought best suited us and he did a great job – he catered for our interests with no worries at all.
He was very Queer friendly and made us feel comfortable.
We will definitely be using this small business again.
Thank you David!

Our tour with David was absolutely fantastic. Jenn had planned things so well and the itinerary was made up a brilliant mix of experiences. We loved the lunch at Domaine Chandon, the wineries were really well chosen (chatted to the young winemaker at one which was fantastic), we loved the gin tasting and the accommodation and dinner were superb. David is a professional and very experienced driver and he seemed to enjoy the fact that we filled the boot and the front of the car with all the wine we bought (we couldn’t resist)! This tour was something I bought for my husband for a very special birthday and it exceeded our expectations – a wonderful tour.

My partner and I decided to purchase this experience as a birthday gift to each other and we had an amazing time from start to finish! Jenn was really friendly, great to chat to, and made us feel very comfortable and relaxed the whole time. The winery’s we went to were the best of the best in the Yarra Valley and at each location Jen handed over us to the friendly staff who took care of us just as well. All the tasting and food included during the day was a incredible! To top it off, the accomodation was amazing, and we have nothing but great things to say about the delicious dinner and buffet style breakfast we had in the morning. We have already recommended this to so many of our friends and family! Thank you so much for such a well organised and great experience, we felt incredibly spoilt and can’t wait to do it again one day!

Fantastic weekend away for my husbands birthday. Our driver David from Chauffeur Driver was amazing and took the stress off us as we didn’t have to worry about a thing.
Can’t wait to organize another weekend away.

Dave picked us up early for our 51st wedding Anniversary and we had a very pleasant drive to the Yarra Valley he introduced us to wineries we never new existed, we found Dave extremely knowledgeable about most of the wineries in the area and gave a running commentary on each as we passed them. The wineries selected for our sampling and the accommodation were first class. Happy to recomment the Experiance
