Word of mouth is often the best way to get a recommendation for things in life and we certainly get a lot of referrals, as well as people coming back to tour with us again. Take Amy for example, she wanted to celebrate her 27th birthday with a Yarra Valley winery tour for her friends, one of whom, Kate, had toured with us when her family were visiting from Perth last year. So she suggested to Amy that she use Tour the Valley!
Fast forward a few weeks and we’d worked together to create a great itinerary for them and John collected them from Reservoir and drove them out to their first wine tasting at Helen & Joey winery which they loved – sadly, due to a thunderstorm overhead, they couldn’t ride on Bruce, the unicorn. Wow, who knew it was potentially dangerous to ride unicorns in storms!? 🙂
Next they went to St Huberts winery and Coldstream Hills for a couple more contrasting wine tastings, before heading to Tokar Estate Winery where they chose a glass of wine to enjoy with their two-course lunch. The group really enjoyed their lunch, the wines and catching up with each other; it proved to be a great way to celebrate Amy’s birthday.
After lunch they whiled away a relaxing afternoon sipping a selection of local cider and beers on tasting paddles at Meletos outside, enjoying the atmosphere.
John had them back to Reservoir by 5.30pm after a great day out celebrating Amy’s 26th Birthday. If you like the sound of a celebration like this and have a birthday coming up, shoot us an email or fill in our tour questionnaire and we can help create an itinerary just for you and your special day.
