Our driver and guide, John, delivered on his promise to show us the best of the Yarra Valley and its wines. We visited 4 very different wineries, and enjoyed an unexpectedly good lunch at one of them (included in the cost of the tour). John picked us up at our hotel and, and we got to enjoy meeting new friends and share wine experiences with a small tour group. The Yarra Valley tour was by far the highlight of the Melbourne-area part of our Australia vacation. We never felt rushed, got to taste some very good wines, and had a wonderful time. I highly recommend Wild Wombat for Melbourne tourists looking to enjoy more of what this region has to offer.

Annie gave us a wonderful tour and glimpse of the valley. Shared a lot of history and interesting stories along the way! The wineries, wines and settings were all so special and the great luncheon in the exquisite winery restaurant was so unexpected (especially at such a reasonable price). Highly recommended!!!!

We have just completed the Yarra valley winery tour. Gary our guide was very informative, friendly, humerous and added in a couple of songs as well. We visited 4 wineries including a delicious lunch. Also included in the trip was a brewery and a chocolate factory. A great day had by all and good value for money. I highly recommend this day tour.

Regards
Daryl & Michelle.

We've just returned from a day tour with Yvette to Healesville Sanctuary, a winery for lunch, the chocolaterie and the dairy. We were picked up from our hotel and given a wonderful time from start to finish. Yvette arranged for us to have a volunteer guide at Healesville who was very informative, we then went to the winery for lunch and wine tastings - all was superb. Yvette did a great job with enthusiasm and we had a beautiful and memorable day. Thoroughly recommend Wild Wombat.

We did the winery/sanctuary tour back in late December with John and Yvette and it was a great day out. I am pretty sure Wild Wombat is the only operator that allows you to combine the amazing Healesville Sanctuary with tastings at multiple wineries in the Yarra Valley. John picked us up directly from our hotel at Southwharf and took us out to the Yarra Valley. We then met up with Yvette for our trip to the Healesville Sanctutary while the others on the tour continued onto a number of wineries. The Healesville Sanctuary does a wonderful job and if you are interested in seeing native Australian wildlife in a beautiful relaxed bush setting, this is the place. The dingos at this place are the best fed I've ever seen. We saw a fantastic new platypus show that the sanctuary had just started and we even got to see the real work of the sanctuary in action as one of the young animals was being operated on in the animal hospital. After our 2 hour diversion to the incredible sanctuary we joined up with the others in the tour for a lovely restaurant quality lunch at a winery. We then finished the afternoon with the wonderful Emma at Madden's Rise. The Yarra Valley is really lovely and from a scenery perspective, you could almost believe you are in Provence, but the wineries are much friendlier and far less pompous. Yvette has a great flexible tour program here and the small group situation is perfect if you hate large groups but want to see some quality smaller places in the wonderful Yarra Valley. The little gift at the end of the tour was a really nice touch too. It will always make us remember Wild Wombat Tours.

Hello,
Thank-you for the glowing review of our Healesville Sanctuary/Winery Tours. We feel at home at the Sanctuary and enjoy every trip there visiting our friends - the animals. We pride ourselves on being able to offer small more intimate tours and are very lucky we are surrounded by such lovely countryside and wineries. Emma is one of our good friends and she always gives us 110% of her time. We are glad we could make your experience in the Yarra Valley so memorable.

Regards, Annie.
