An outstanding experience and a highlight of our trip We spent the day with you on 12 February touring the Yarra Valley and we just wanted to say how much we enjoyed it. We have done many wine tours in many places but none have compared to the experience we had with you. You selected the perfect wineries for us. We tasted some magnificent boutique wines and you introduced us personally to some amazing wine makers. Lunch was delicious. The food and wine alone would have made a memorable day but your generosity and company made it an outstanding experience and a highlight of our trip. Thank you.
“Custom Tour. Great Guide. Will do it again!” Graham and Bill have a wonderful relationship with all of the wineries in the Yarra Valley region. Graham was our terrific host. Every winery during our tour greeted us with “right this way Graham,” and we experienced a class-above experience. Graham tailored a day that exactly met our wishes, and we sat one-on-one with winemakers as well as sampled some of the region’s finest wine offerings. We began the tour as clients, and we ended the tour as friends. Oftentimes, you never know when booking a tour if the web-site is “for real.” Well, this is “for real.” The web-site is a true reflection on the specialty tour that Graham arranged for us. We will book another tour with Graham as our guide on our next visit.
“Fantastic day out” We booked a tour and ended up having a private tour day with Bill. Bill had our day planned well and suggested options to make sure we made the most of our visits. He was very flexible and knew who to approach at each venue to make our tour personal and entertaining. Fabulous tour! Highly recommend this guide.
“Great Wine Tour!” Bill was our host and he was fantastic! He was very interesting and a great host. Some things that specifically made him stand out was the fact that he tried to make the group nice and small, even though we didn’t have a private booking. He also drove us to Coles to pick up dinner before getting dropped off at our accommodation that was slightly out of the way from the town. This was greatly appreciated. He had a great sense of humor and we really enjoyed our time with him!

I just wanted to write Grape Escape thanking them for an amazing day. My partner and I were lucky enough to have a tour with Graham this week and we were so impressed with Graham, he is very gracious and friendly. The whole tour could not have been better! We enjoyed ourselves every moment and were so happy that we got to pick and choose which wineries we wanted to visit (with great suggestions from Graham). Also the lunch at Tokar was fantastic. Thanks again for everything Graham! It was the highlight of our trip and we will be seeing you again!
We find Bill to be a brilliant tour operator, offering the finest balance between friendliness and professionalism.

Dear Bill – Thank you so much for a fantastic day. It was great to learn so much about the Yarra Valley and the wines. You really added a personal touch to the day, as well as showing us a great variety of different styles of wineries, It was especially interesting to talk to the winemakers in person. We will certainly recommend you to all our friends it has been a very memorable experience.

In our evaluation of the conference you received all ‘very good’ for your winery tour and some people put it down as their conference highlight – so you did a fabulous job
The whole day was great. You were also unexpectantly good with our little child Julia and allowing us some time alone to taste the wines. Your knowledge of the wineries and the Yarra Valley were excellent. Thank you again for everything.
Thank you for your fantastic service. We had a wonderful day and really enjoyed the wineries you took us to. Most of them were ones we would never have tried if we were on our own. Our time in the Yarra Valley was most enjoyable and we are sure to return in the near future.
Dear Bill – What a wonderful day Thanks so much for making our trip so memorable. Your service was above and beyond . We will certainly be recommending your tours to everybody
