Wild Wombat Winery Tours is now called Wombat Tours and Transfers. The changes are more than skin deep, though, as we have also launched a host of new tours and a brand new way to make sure your private bus, seat on a public tour, or private transfers is booked online. Watch for features coming soon on each of the new tours. They’re all carefully designed by our partners 13Percent to take in the best the Yarra Valley has to offer with unique experiences and opportunities to go off the beaten path.
Highlights of the new tours on offer include the all new Graze All Day food and wine experience, and the Young Guns and Upstarts tour.
Of course, all our smiling Wombat tour planners and guides are still here, and we’re all eager to bring you the new offers and start taking our customers on the best day they’ve had. We remain flexible in our choice of venues and itineraries. Existing bookings will run as usual while we transition, and in the future, long term book-ahead customers will be offered an upgrade to one of the new tours at no cost.
Designing and running the premium experiences, 13 Percent brings you one-off opportunities to get right in behind the scenes with winemakers, do barrel tastings, blending, and learn things about food and wine that you’d never imagined. All 13Percent experiences are bespoke, one-off, and designed with you to suit you and your group.
So, why the change?
When Yvette Stanley started Wild Wombat Winery Tours over a decade ago, there were a handful of operators in the Yarra Valley, and the model was the same across all of them; Go to cellar doors, do free tastings. Wind the clock forward ten years, and the landscape is different now.
There are many more wine makers doing exciting things, and not all have cellar doors. We have access to these on many of our experiences.
There are many more food options, some of them really interesting, and not all of them have restaurants. We have brought some of these into what we offer at Wombat.
Our business has evolved over the years to where we are one of the premier providers of transfer services to and from the city, airport, and around the Yarra Valley and beyond, so it makes sense to include this! And lastly, it’s not all about the wineries! So, a change to Wombat Tours and Transfers is representative of the evolution of our business and an indication of where it is we see ourselves growing too.
Oh, don’t forget the online bookings! This is a huge boon to our business and industry. You can check public and private option availability for tours and book right then. You can book your transfer from your phone. All on our secure payment platform.
It’s an exciting time for Wombat Tours and Transfers, and we look forward to you coming on the ride with us!
