Some recent tripadvisor feedback
“Well organised, stress free tour”
I booked a wine tour with Wine compass for a corporate conference. From the beginning of the booking process they were very flexible, incorporating the places we wanted to go and also giving suggestions on other places we hadn’t thought of. Communication was prompt and detailed from start to finish.
The actual bus itself was great – leather seats, air-conditioned and the perfect size for our group. Bottled water on board was a great idea.
Our tour guide Jarrod was really knowledgeable and took care of everything on the day, which took the pressure off me as the organiser. It was a really relaxing and enjoyable experience for the whole group.
I would absolutely use Wine compass again for any tours in the future, both for business or social trips.
“Highly recommended!! Sam was Awesome!”
I’ve done a couple of wine tours in Yarra valley with different companies and this was by far my favourite. We had a hens party of 10 ladies with Sam hosting and we had a blast! the whole experience from quote to the day was great – would recommend and would do it again! Thank you thank you thank you
“Sensational Yarra Valley Tour”
Adam, Jimmy and team put together a great Yarra Valley winery tour for our recent team outing, we got to visit some lovely boutique wineries (including one that we requested that wasn’t on their list) and tried some really amazing wines. Jimmy also made sure that we slowed down when passing kangaroos so our international visitors could get a good look and take some photos.
I will definitely be using Wine Compass again.
“Amazing tour of the Yarra Valley. Loved it! Highly recommend.”
We had a fantastic tour with Wine Compass for our company’s belated Christmas party. Our guide, Jarrod, was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, friendly and provided a relaxed and fun atmosphere. He took great care of us! The wineries we visited were varied and each special in their own way. It was an awesome event. Highly recommend.
“Hens day Wine Tour”
We had a fantastic day! Mel our host and Lou our bus driver were wonderful. The bus was very comfortable. The wineries they took us too were excellent, smaller, lesser known which was exactly what we were looking for. I would definitely use them again.
Thanks to Wine Compass and our wonderful host Jarrod for an amazing wine tour! We had an amazing day and were taken to small but excellent wineries which you could tell had a real passion for it. Would 100% book again!
