    I can’t recommend this tour enough! Vine Trekker was such a well organised tour full of awesome wineries that all show cased something different about the Yarra Valley, whether that was a stand out Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, historical building or stunning views. Our guide, Paul, was especially memorable, he went above and beyond many times during the day and his knowledge and energy made the day something I’ll never forget. I’ll definitely be telling everyone I know about this tour, to the point where they’ll probably tell me to be quiet.. Again, thanks for the best day! -Julia -( wine enthusiast,WA)
