An amazing day. Sean is a very friendly and charismatic tour guide. He has an excellent knowledge of the local area. Some amazing food and a wide variety of wines and beers to sample. Comfortable bus with a safe driver. A lovely group of people on our tour. A great opportunity to share experiences and local knowledge with others who are travelling around similar places. If you are going to do a tour of the Yarra Valley, make it with Dancing Kangaroo Tours. 10/10 would recommend

Great day trip
Priscilla_V, Oct 2022
Amazing tour. Sean was an amazing guide and clearly passionate about these tours. He gave good info about the area and was the designated driver for the day. We had about 16 in our group on a Monday which was very nice. Everyone was very pleasant and fun on the trip and Sean makes an effort for everyone to interact and socialize. Monday was great as we had most of the winery to ourselves. We heard the weekend is much busier. The 3 wineries we visited were beautiful and the drive through the wine region was beautiful (we were lucky to have great weather in October). Very nice terrain and cute cows and lamb scattered throughout. The chocolate/ice cream stop was unique and a nice end of the day treat. We got lucky and had final stop upgraded to a gin stop instead of beer since the usual stop was closed which I was happy about because we had heard great things and hype about Australian gin from Australian friends we met abroad on another trip. Great day overall! Highly recommend.
