    Air-conditioned minibus picked us up at Ringwood Station and about 20 of us enjoyed visiting the Yarra Valley chocolaterie and having three wine tastings. Lunch was at Healesville and not included in the tour cost - this is the only drawback as the description was not fully clear about lunch. However the brewery in Healesville was a great place to have some beer tasting and pizza. Good communication from bus driver throughout the day and we are grateful to him for dropping us off closer to home rather than Ringwood. We visited St Hubert's, Boat O'Craigo and Medhurst. Thank you to the tour company for a smoothly run lovely day out.

    The driver was lovely, the wine was delicious and so was the chocolate. Cannot recommend this tour enough. You will meet some incredible people too. For my first tour experience, it was amazing šŸ§”

    Fantastic tourā€¦chocolate factory and wineries were all wonderful. Scenery and tour guide were both great. Highly recommend!!

    Shane was an amazing guide and took us to 3 fantastic vinyards! Medhurst vinyard - our last stop was definitly my favourite. Our first stop was at a choclate factory where we got a tasting and even though I told myself not to buy anything I couldn't resist.. It got a bit stressful at times where we had to rush off to the next spot. Wouldn't have minded a longer stay at each location, with time to have a walk around or sit in the sun for a minute. Overall a great tour and we got the luck of spendning it with a great group of people, that even contained a proposal! All the best to the happy two <3 Will absolutley recomend this tour!

    Fantastic tour! We loved the St. Huberts Cellar door wine tasting and the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie the best. Shane was an excellent guide as well. If we were to change anything, we would have added a stop to try cheeses too (or had a cheese/charcuterie included with the wine tasting). Overall, it was well worth the money and I would recommend it!

    A perfect day tour to explore Yarra valley and of course wine tasting. It covers visit to Yarra valley chocolaterie and icecreamary and 3 wine tastings.

    It's a beautiful green and quiet place to visit and lots of wine tests. If you like wine or chocolate you would love the tour.

    Joined the tour in Oct to Yarra Valley, Tim was the guide who welcomed everyone on board the bus. He was engaging and shared great knowledge regarding the landmarks along the journey right from the pick up point to Yarra. The tour is unique for wine tasting, where the group was brought to multiple wineries to have a taste of the local produce, as well as to have some chocolate tasting. Overall a relaxing tour to go for.

    We had a fabulous day with Maj (driver) on our Yarra Valley tour of Chocolaterie, Healesville and three vineyards. The places visited were all welcoming and had the most amazing scenery, food and wine. Also had a great mix of fun people on the bus to chat with. Thank you Wildlife Tours!

    John, our guide, was really friendly. The group size was small due to COVID-19, so it was nice and intimate. Wasn't too interested in the beer tasting, but everything else was good. Could have added another winery since we had some extra time. Would recommend to swap out the beer tasting with 1-2 other wineries. Overall, good experience!
