Nicci took my partner and I on a very personal tour of the Yarra Valley. It was for my partners Birthday and she was not let down. Her knowledge of the area and different locations was fantastic and any questions we asked were answered in great detail. Her knowledge of Koalas is brilliant and funny too! Thanks Nicci, Phil

An absolutely amazing day away from the CBD. Bill our driver was sensational. An must do!!!!! I suggest you don't buy your quota of wine at the first stop as there is an amazing range of wines throughout the tour. Be careful though as you may never want to leave the Yarra Valley....absolutely stunning place

We booked this wine tour for our last day in Melbourne, and we we far from disappointed! Highlights included a cheese and wine pairing session, a delicious lunch, and spotting kangaroos hiding in vines. A big thanks to Bill, who was a great guide...good knowledge, and lots of banter. Highly recommended

Just arrived back from a great day out to the Mornington Peninsula. It was a pleasure to spend the day with our guide Nicci. She was a great host, very knowledgeable, designed the tour to suit our tastes and let us go at our own pace. We would highly recommend Epicurean and would definitely book a tour through them again.

From start to finish, this was a fantastic tour. Bill, our driver and guide, was prompt, funny and knowledgeable. He introduced us to 5 outstanding wineries, pointing out lovely views and we even got to see some wild kangaroos! Leisurely tour, with perfect timing between each stop. Would highly recommend!
