What people are saying about our service…
In November 2019, myself and a friend were looking for a last minute wine tour and were pointed in the direction of Driven Indulgence and George. We knew exactly what we wanted to get from the tour, visiting smaller less busy wineries and George totally listened and delivered what we wanted. George was patient and totally flexible allowing us to get the most from our various stops. I can not recommend him highly enough. George we will be back!
We felt the whole thing was easy-going and the itinerary was relaxed… we even arrived home 2 hours later than planned as George did not attempt to rush us through any of our stops, which involved some amazing wineries, a delicious lunch and some wonderful experiences at a gin distillery and a microbrewery. The highlight of the day was having the opportunity to spend over 2 hours at one winery with both the owner and the head winemaker, tasting their prized wines and chatting about their work and their products in a comfortable, picturesque and relaxed setting.
As a host, George was knowledgeable, friendly, professional and accommodating.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day and look forward to returning to driven indulgence in the near future to do some further exploring of the region with George as our host!
We felt very comfortable with you and you accommodated our need very well, next time I have a group to the around you will be the first call.
I would recommend George and Drive Indulgence to anyone who wished to be comfortably looked after in grand style.
Thank you George. David Morrow
We had no idea where to go but thankfully were picked up by George who is the most wonderful guide there could be! He was so friendly and professional, extremely knowledgable and really fun to be around.
George created a route for us which included a mixture of well known and boutique establishments in a beautiful region and a fabulous place for lunch. We couldn’t have had a better time and can’t wait to book again with George for some more exploring.
Thankyou so much!! Jen and Dan
Thanks also for being so accommodating when one of our party was ill and we had to change the date late in the process. We will definitely see you again!
Myself and five other ladies spend a weekend in the Yarra to celebrate a friend’s special birthday!!! We could not of asked for a more accommodating, generous, knowledgeable and friendly guide!!! George took us where we wanted to go and offered suggestions on extra points of interest, and lots of really interesting local knowledge of the area. I can safely say all of us had a very special and memorable time on our weekend away and that was in part to the wonderful, personalised service of George, right down to finding a lost piece of jewellery of great sentimental value to one of the girls in the dark of night!!!! Cannot recommend George highly enough!!!
The wineries he suggested and took us to were fantastic. Lots of laughs and bottles of wine were bought and consumed! Only problem was that we ran out of time and didn’t get a chance to visit more wineries!
We found that George’s pricing was also very good value and was cheaper than most of the group / bus tours we looked into. The bus was also very clean, spacious and comfortable.
We would highly recommend George to anyone wanting a great personalized designated driver / tour guide for the day.
Would recommend him over and over!
If you are visiting from abroad and looking for a great experience you can’t go wrong with Driven Indulgence as George will tailor the day to fit what you are looking for.
Can’t thank you enough for our wonderful day touring the Yarra Valley!
We were all so impressed with how smoothly the day went and all the beautiful places you suggested we visit. We have already passed on your details to others and look forward to using your service again next time we visit! Cheers
You made our holiday to the Yarra Valley just perfect. Thanks again! Caporale Family 🙂
We went for the “Designated Driver” option whereby George drove our hire car all day and it was absolutely brilliant.
We didn’t really have any plans and George’s suggestions and flexibility were brilliant and his knowledge also was superb. He was such a lovely guy as well which made our day nice and relaxing.
He took us mainly to boutique Wineries which was more our thing. We visited Steels Gate, Corniola, Yileena Estate, Dominigue Portet, Giant Steps and the Innocent Bystander. We also went to Four Pillars which was pre-arranged by us as well.
With all the wine we’d purchased it was also appreciated him stopping at Coles on the way back so we could buy some bits for a BBQ as we changed our dinner plans so that we could enjoy our wine and view.
I would 100% recommend George’s services as our days touring the Wineries wouldn’t have been the same without him.
We visited 6 top small producers, and sampled some excellent wines.
George was very knowledgable about the area and a great host. We will definitely use him again in the future.
George is a wonderful host for the day – he is happy to work with your requests, and equally happy to suggest venues if you aren’t entirely sure where you want to go. He is full of knowledge about the wineries and local areas, and it is very relaxing in his company.
On both tours with Driven Indulgence, I had the most fantastic day and will continue to recommend these tours to all my friends and family. Thanks again!
5 Star service for a reasonable cost!
Would definitely recommend Driven Indulgences to family and friends… and even strangers if they listen.
George took me and my parter on a designated driver tour around the Yarra Valley. He was a treat to deal with as he was quick on returning all emails and calls. After my enquiry we had a brief chat over the phone and he then put together an itinerary (detailed yet flexible) for a great day out. On the day, George was prompt on time, introduced himself to take any awkwardness out of it and was well drilled in his local knowledge of the area. When arriving at each destination George took us into each venue, introduced us and made sure we were well looked after. Along the way I proposed to my partner and George was more than happy to be cameraman and play a part in our special day. George was a safe driver and amazing from start to finish. I recommend him 100% and hope to come back and tour again and see the places we didn’t have time for.
