The wedding day will soon be here but WAIT! There’s one crucial thing that needs to happen, the last Hurrah for the bride to be…The Hens Party!   

What better way to celebrate the transition from Miss to Mrs than with a day of fun and decadence? The Hens Party has a special place in the journey to the wedding day, and at Ami Tours, we believe you should have “Your Day, Your Way!”

(almost!)

With a fully licensed and CPVV accredited driver at your side, our aim is to provide you with a memorable hens experience exploring the best that Yarra Valley has to offer at an affordable price.

Our 1st stop is Yering Station, Yarra Valley’s first & most famous family vineyard. Yering Station is a state-of-the art creation that manages to combine style and sophistication with traditional, age-old wine making techniques.

At the Cellar Door, the technical term for the wine-tasting area, you can try 15 styles of wine. And if you’re wondering what the heck your guide is on about when he asks you if you can taste the freshly mown grass in your Cabernet Franc, or the hint of smoky tobacco in your Shiraz, fear not! The guides are skilled wine experts, on-hand to provide a bit of palate training should it be required.

The wines have received immediate acclaim since the first entry into James Halliday’s 2005 wine companion.

  • Customer Review - Sarah M.
    SARAH M.If I could give this company more than 5 stars I would! Planning a Hens party for 21 people isn't easy and Ami Tours made it a wonderful experience! From start to finish, Michelle was more than accommodating with the planning & coordination. Our driver, AJ, was INCREDIBLE! Almost every single person in our group came up to me after the tour to tell me what a great time they had had. They thought AJ did an awesome job! He was so friendly and the whole tour was so organized. All of the wineries were great choices to accommodate a group our size. There is no doubt I would use this company again!! They were wonderful!
  • Customer Review - Karen D.
    KAREN D.Our tour was organised by the maids of honour in our hens party for our bride-to-be, Sian. Our driver/guide, AJ, arrived on time. Friendly, courteous and professional, he gave us a run-down of the day's itinerary, timings and what to expect before we left. We first went to Yering Station and were sat at the front verandah, perfect spot to enjoy the good weather. For lunch, we went to Soumah Wines for some wood-fired pizza. Then in the afternoon, we had a bit more time at Killara Estate and where the wine was great, a few of us bought bottles to take home. AJ managed time and expectations well, there was no rushing and the mood was relaxed, though our party did grow a bit raucious towards the end! The day trip was very well organised and the winery selections were great. Highly recommend the experience. Thanks, Ami Tours for a lovely hens day out! 😊
  • Customer Review - Claire N.
    CLAIRE N.Such a fantastic experience on a hens day out with this company. The winery destinations were thoughtfully selected, and our hosts kept us laughing and in great spirits all day. I would highly recommend for your next wine tour down on Yarra Valley.
