Feel free to get in touch with us via bookings@amitours.com.au for any questions about bookings.

What is the standard duration of a tour?

A full-day wine tour booking includes 8 hours; this includes the time from the first pickup to the final drop-off. However, there are exceptions to this in case of extreme weather conditions, traffic incidents, etc.

Example of a standard tour: Tour begins at 10 am from pick up point in Melbourne CBD, driver & passengers arrive at Yarra Valley at 11 am, return to Melbourne CBD to finish the tour at 6.00pm.

If multiple pickup pickups/drop-offs are required, then it is recommended to plan your day ahead to avoid exceeding the 8-hour tour duration.

Will I be charged extra for exceeding the 8-hour limit of tour?

Not strictly, we may allow up to an extra 30 minutes as no one is perfect, and going overtime can happen. However, if an 8-hour tour ends up being a 9- or 10-hour tour then you will be charged overtime.

It is important to note that the driver is booked for 8 hours and longer hours of driving result in fatigue which is not ideal for the safety of the driver and passengers on board.

  • Customer Review - Olivia
    DANIELLE M.AJ was an exceptional person to interact with regarding the planning of our wine tour in Mornington. Very accommodating and understanding on lots of fronts to create the perfect tour. I would not hesitate to book another tour with Ami Tours. Thanks for creating the awesome memories!
  • Customer Review - Giuseppina
    GIUSEPPINA G.Sam was extremely helpful from beginning to end and designed a fantastic custom-itinerary for a Sunday out in Yarra Valley for 6 friends and I. We had ample time at each location to enjoy the scenery, wine, cheeses and chocolates and AJ was a fantastic guide - he even came through with some song requests at the last venue! Cannot recommend Ami Tours highly enough for a gorgeous day out with friends.
  • Customer Review - Shana
    SHANA K.Excellent communication through the booking process with loads of options to choose from so that we had the best eperience to celebrate our work Christmas party in January. All put together so expertly so that it included wine, gin, vodka, nibbles and a gorgeous rolling tapas lunch. So much value for money with what was included but not only that, it was all booked and organised for us which took the hassle out of trying to piece it together ourselves. Win-Win!! To make a good tour (apart from having good company and good wine), you must have a great chauffeur and we had AJ. He was absolutely brilliant. The complete gentleman who was very informative, looked after us thoroughly to ensure that our day was one to remember - even going out of his way to look for some lost sunglasses and then dropping us safely back home. Thank you AJ! Thanks Ami Tours, we had such a great day and we will definitely be back.
