Our tours are designed to accommodate guests who wish to have an individual and luxurious touring experience. Unlike many other tours, transport is in a luxury Statesman sedan - and not in a bus or people mover. This important difference enhances the friendly personal approach shown by your hosts, Geoff Cooper or his driving partner Peter Lane.

In general we offer tours for a minimum of two and a maximum of four people, however for group or corporate tours see below for details.

Tours are available seven days a week and at short notice. We are flexible. We can tailor tours to suit your timetable, etc. Our Tours make great gifts for your friends and family.

Enjoy the company of your friends or partner in peace and comfort. Enjoy a few drinks without the worry of driving. Share information and stories with your personal tour guide.

For a leisurely, private day in the Yarra Valley and Warburton Highway wine regions, contact YVPWT today.

Geoff can organise a mixed case from several wineries during the day and can organise posting your wine to anywhere in Australia at a nominal cost. Delivery is through Australia Post, but any damage is at the client's own risk and will need to be followed up with Australia Post by the client.
