In the Yarra Valley, ‘east’ means ‘feast’ with indulgences including wine, dairy, lunch, chocolate, brewery ales, gin … and much more!
The picturesque Yarra Valley is a short drive east of Melbourne and is probably the most popular get-away destination from the city and suburbs. It is known primarily as wine territory, with more than 50 vineyards and wineries listed in the area, but there is so much to do and enjoy on top of this … all from the comfort, coolness and curiosity factor of one of our classic Chevs.
Your party of four can be collected from city hotels or a Carlton café for a private tour driven by your d’Luxe host, John Frostell – local Chevrolet enthusiast and drive-to location expert.
A typical ‘Yarra Valley’ tour heads:
> Eastern Freeway
> Maroondah Highway (or Wonga Park rural back roads, even better!)
> Coombe Restaurant (Dame Nellie Melba) – morning Devonshire tea and scones
> TarraWarra Estate (winery and gallery)
> Various wine, craft brewery and distillery tastings
> Yarra Valley Dairy
> And seriously, the options are endless!
For this itinerary a shortened version is possible over 3 hours (Half day) but properly should be booked to make a new 4.5 hours (3-Quarter) or 6 hours (Full day) tour. As always, stops can be added and changed to suit passenger interests and available time.
These tours are the perfect choice for international and interstate visitors wanting a unique look at Melbourne and environs, otherwise for locals looking at special gift ideas or simply just a bit of fun!

What they are saying about d’Luxe:
What a wonderful way to spend a day. While perfect for a tourist this adventure is just as perfect for a Melbourne local. Revisiting places you know and love from the back seat of a an old classic car with the charming driver John who shares his passion for both Chevy’s and Melbourne is a true delight. I will definitely be going for a drive with d’Luxe classic car tours again.
