customise your tour
All of our tours are customisable because we want you to enjoy your day the way you want it. If you don’t think you can handle all of that premium craft beer then you can always switch it up a little by substituting a brewery with wine, gin, vodka or even an activity that doesn’t involve alcohol.
Swap or Add Any of the Following:
- Vodka distillery
- Gin distillery
- Cocktail bar
- Second behind the scenes brewery tour
- Cider house
- Aqua golf
- Horse & carriage ride
- Cheese & / or chocolate
- Bubble soccer
We’ve got three options for you depending on the number of people and how hard you want to go. For smaller groups we suggest a minivan as they’re the most cost effective. If your group is 10+ in size and you really want to give the day a proper nudge you should consider the party bus which is basically a nightclub on wheels. Got a large group but don’t want everyone getting too rowdy? The minibus is the vehicle for you. Drinking is permitted on the party bus only.

Pokolbin Cider House makes cider like you’ve never tasted before. Just another reason to visit really! Grab a tasting paddle, sit back and laugh with friends as you take in Valley views from an elevated position. Unfortunately they only cater to small groups.
Hope Estate often plays host to some of the biggest musical acts in the country but did you know they also make great beer? Their offering extends to 22 beers and ciders on tap so they have enough flavour to satisfy even the fussiest and most seasoned beer connoisseurs. Kick back outside and watch the kangaroos play while giving your tastebuds a reward.
