My husband and I are new to wine tasting's/tours but Jeremy our tour guide made us feel so comfortable and there was no question to silly. We traveled to 4 different winery's, lunch was included at one of the winery's and I must say we both enjoyed what we ordered, yum yum. The highlight of the tour other than the company of Jeremy was the staff/owners that we met at the winery's. They didn't rush us through the process and didn't mind us asking a million questions. Will definitely be doing this again and will be requesting Jeremy once again. If you think that the best wines are in warmer climates you need to treat yourself to the best wines in tasmania. Book with Vallybrook wine tours, you won't regret it. Just as you asked, flex your pecks:-D

Well, all the reviews preceeding this one seem to praise Marcia. Let me point out that the other tour guide- Jeremy- is also outstanding. My partner and I, plus 2 other couples thoroughly enjoyed our outing to 4 excellent wineries. As is the case with such tours, the group got more jolly and chatty with every winery that we passed, and Jeremy patiently guided us along, answering any questions and giving us insights into the industry- whilst showing good humour. The canapes and cheeses provided at the start and end of the trip were also delicious- one slight improvement would be crusty bread on the canape courses rather than such soft bread. But that's just a minor quibble. We got picked up from our hotel right on time and the transport is comfortable. Thoroughly recommended.

We spent a lovely day with Marcia sampling the fine wines and food of the Tamar Valley. Marcia has a real passion for the region and enjoyed sharing this with us. She has a wonderful relationship with the owners of the vineyards and has years of experience in the industry. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Launceston, we throughly enjoyed the experience.

This was one of the best days we have had in long time. Marcia picked us up at our hotel and took us out to the Tamar Valley for a great afternoon of scenery and wine tasting. Marcia took the time to find out what sort of wines we liked and tailored the afternoon to our needs. We shared our mini bus with 2 girls from France so we were all very comfortable. Marcia puts on a great spread of nibbles at one of the wineries and is so informative and entertaining. I recommend this tour to everyone visiting Launceston as it is one of the true great Australian experiences.

On short noticed we booked our half say wine tour with Marcia. She was super informative on all the vineyards we stopped at, offering extra bits of information, chatting with the owners and sharing stories. Marcia went above and beyond accommodating our 10 month old to be brought on the tour (We provided the car seat; huge thanks to our fellow tourist who were very kind out it too). I would say Marcia is the the best guide to book with and definitely good value. Only negative is we spent too much time at the first vineyard so were a bit rushed to see the last three but Marcia did make arrangements with the last vineyard to stay open late for us, so all was ok in the end.
