Visited the Yarra Valley last spring and it was an absolute treat! The scenic vineyards stretching out were a feast for the eyes, and the wine tastings were exceptional. Staff at the wineries were knowledgeable and welcoming. I highly recommend the gourmet lunch tours – the food is as delightful as the wine!

The hot air balloon ride at sunrise over the Yarra Valley was a dream come true. Floating silently above the patchwork of vineyards, with spectacular views of the rolling hills, was unforgettable. Landing to a champagne breakfast was the cherry on top. A must-do for anyone visiting the area.
