Highly recommend. I went by myself and had the best day drinking wine and eating with a really lovely group of people. The three wineries we went to were great, we got to try 5-8 wines at each, and the views were amazing. Giovanna guided us through everything and was so wonderful.

Giovanna was such fun! Her enthusiasm was contagious and her relationship with the vendors we met was personal and lovely! She was very knowledgeable about the area as it relates to wineries and vineyards, the dairy, brewery and chocolate place. I had a blast and would highly recommend her company's tour to anyone who wants to have a nice outing with fun folks!

Highly recommend the Yarra Valley Epic Food and Wine Experience! The Experience was very well planned from ensuring we took the most scenic route to the beautiful Yarra Valley through to the great choice of boutique wineries we visited. Lunch which was included was beautiful and we were fortunate to spend the day with a great group of people from all of the world including Australia. Our Guide, Giovanna is extremely passionate, knowledgeable and informative about the Yarra Valley and she made the whole experience a very positive one. Well done and I cant recommend this Experience enough - great value for money spent!
