Our tour guide was Chris N, he was the sweetest and very friendly. The tour was awesome, although I can't quite hold my liquor however the cheese tasting was amazing, the chocolate factory was even better, we got to try a lot of types of chocolates. the views were amazing as well, Chris was very knowledgeable about the environment and he even threw some fun facts about the areas for us. The lunch was quite awesome for those who are not vegan, for those who are vegan, the lunch was quite acceptable, with a side of wine or soft drinks and tea or coffee as a palate cleanser. overall, we love the tour, the group was friendly and we loosen up and get to know each other after a drink, naturally I would recommend this for those who wants to explore Yarra Valley, especially travelers like us. Thanks Chris for arranging our schedule and making sure we're on time and get to see all the places!
