What if we are in the City / Another Suburb?

Many of our guests choose to catch a train from Flinders Street (or another station) and travel to Lilydale Station (approx. 1 hour journey) and a far better option than potentially sitting in heavy freeway traffic.  The meeting time at Lilydale Station can be advised depending on where you are travelling from and whether mid-week or weekend.  We can send you instruction on catching the train – it’s easy!

What vehicle do you use?

Our small group, bespoke, private tours are operated in a luxury 8-seater Kia Carnival Special Edition.  Featuring a luxurious interior with ample space, next generation Kia technology, dual sunroofs and 5 star safety rating.  You will travel in complete comfort & style.

What if I don’t drink alcohol?

You will still be spoilt for choice!  All of our tours can provide alternatives if you prefer not to drink alcohol – The Yarra Valley offers a range of exceptional Cafes offering world class coffee and a range of delicious teas, chai, smoothies, juices & milkshakes.

Can food & drink be consumed in the vehicle?

In consideration of all guests, we ask that you not consume food or drinks in the vehicle – water is fine and bottled water will be provided.

What should I bring / What about the weather?

Melbourne is known for 4 seasons in 1 day – so we suggest a sun hat, light jacket, wrap or warmer layer in the winter, sunscreen and comfortable shoes.  Please advise in advance if you have any mobility or health concerns which might affect your enjoyment of the day.

Are the tours suitable for children?

Most of our itineraries are best suited to children aged 12 +

Are special dietary needs catered for?

Yes – all proposed venues will have a range of options and to ensure this is accommodated, please advise us in advance.
