We were a group of 3 and joined Gary (our host and guide) with a couple of other groups in a minivan. This made it a nice atmosphere where we could all chat. The tours can be adjusted to suit white or red wine tastes as well as some boutique beer breweries. We had a wonderful day visiting 5 wineries... More

This is our second time doing a private tour with "Wild Wombat". We got to visit some great wineries and craft beer pubs of our choice plus the awesome Coldstream Dairy and 4 Pillars Gin. Our driver Chris was young and enthusiastic, with a lot of local knowledge. The average lunch was partly our fault as we chose the Coldstream... More

Wild Wombat tours were one of the few tours I could find that would pick us up at our accommodation Healesville in the Yarra Valley. They were on time, and adjusted the trip to suit the taste of the six people on the tour. They let us take as long as we wanted at each winery, and let us choose... More

My hubby and I had the best day in Melbourne joining Gary on this tour! It started off with the Healesville Sanctuary tour where we actually had a private tour guide taking us through the entire journey - heaps of interesting information and stories about the animals from Harold, our guide in the sanctuary, made it so much fun!

My wife and I were picked up on time and enjoyed a wonderful day with our driver Gary. He was most informative about the Yarra Valley region and enjoyed a joke or two with all of us on board. We enjoyed some very good wines and a lovely lunch. Well worth the cost.

We were picked up at Lilydale station and taken to Healesville sanctuary for a few hours, which was enough to see the main attractions. Gary picked us up and took us to Boat O'Craigo winery for wine tasting and lunch. The wine was great, the pizza was delicious and we met a great group comprising both Melbournians and overseas visitors.... More
