Here what our guests have to say about taking a Yarra Valley family wine tour:
We booked the family-friendly winery tour for 4 adults and 3 children aged 9/7/3. From the start James responded quickly and helpfully to emails, suggesting an itinerary and taking on board ideas of our own. We visited 4 wineries and the chocolate factory, with a delicious lunch in between. Nothing was too much trouble for James and he even took us back at the end of the day to an earlier winery where my son had left his hat. As for the children, who had not been enthusiastic at the idea of a wine tour…….they were in seventh heaven with the cricket set, bubble wands, iPads and much more (plus biscuits!) packed into the boot of the tour car. James was patient, friendly and played endless games of cricket with them whilst we were able to concentrate on the wine-tasting. Overall this was an excellent day out, and also very good value. I feel very pleased I came across this website and this will be a real highlight of our trip to Melbourne.

My family and I recently spent a wonderful day with James touring the Yarra Valley. We were looking for a wine tasting tour that would be family friendly since we were traveling with a three year old. James planned the perfect day for all of us with visits to several special wineries and the Healesville Sanctuary. He was extremely helpful with the little one and made sure everyone had a great experience. I would definitely recommend I Heart Melbourne for any tours in the Melbourne area.

We had a wonderful family day in the Yarra Valley, thank you James! My Dad came from France where he lives (and work in wine business), this tour was a perfect birthday gift for him (and for my partner and I by the same occasion!). James arrived at our place perfectly on time and then the adventure started…
He drove us in the beautiful Yarra Valley, through the more stunning routes, and made us discover some gems wineries. The selection of places was perfect, from the small family winery to the biggest ones… James carried us from one place to another, following our own rhythm while sharing many stories about the region with us.
I strongly recommend ” I heart Melbourne “

In April 2015, we visited Australia because we got a really cheap ticket to Melbourne from Hong Kong. Melbourne was almost an afterthought, as we were so infatuated with the idea of getting our intra-regional flight to Sydney. Thanks to James and I Heart Melbourne Tours, we gained a great appreciation of Melbourne all of its sophistication. We did a family friendly wine tour of the Yarra Valley; it was awesome. James took us to numerous great wineries. While my wife and I participated in the tastings James played with our two boys: cricket, soccer, etc. The next day, he took us on a tour of the Great Ocean Road. We got to see the 12 Apostles, kangaroos, koalas, and all kinds of native Aussie critters. James was super knowledgeable and very flexible. If we go back to Melbourne James and I Heart Melbourne will be my first call.
