Everyone who has ever visited a vineyard had the same idea after two vineyards: wouldn’t a hop-on-hop-off bus be brilliant? Some bloody legends from Victoria have finally made your dream Yarra Valley Wine Tours a reality.
The married couple Jon and Sara Lee had the same thoughts as us: that wine tours are overpriced, offer no flexibility, and the drivers are a joke. But they did something about it.
Jon revealed that he and his wife, Sara, are both Europeans. Sara is German, while I am from Wales. We would take our family members who came from home to the Yarra Valley.
Hop It is a new hop-on-hop-off bus service that combines the experience of both the couple in hospitality and tourism.
Hop offers tours around the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula, and the Bellarine Peninsula. You can choose from a list of stops to create your itinerary. There are more than just wineries.
Broadsheet explains that “many people are aware of the wine country but it is a truly magical place with so many things to do and to see”. You don’t need to drink alcohol if you want to enjoy the beautiful views of the valley.
Melbourne’s city center is located outside the Grand Hyatt Hotel and Lilydale Station. You can choose from a range of stops, including Yarra Valley Chocolaterie, Yering Station Winery, The Taphouse, and Domaine Chandon.
Tickets can range between $69.95 and $124.94, depending on the route you choose. This is a great deal if you have ever booked a winery visit. You will be riding in a Toyota van that has 11 seats and room for your wine bag.
