Melbourne is famous for its café culture and at Café Bus we wanted to capture that essence and take it with us! The Café Bus is a unique, specially designed small bus with large, comfortable lounge seats arranged in booth configurations to encourage a warm social atmosphere. There really is nothing like this on the market.
Our on-board coffee machine provides free unlimited coffee throughout the day and our professional tour guides will keep you informed and entertained. Café Bus tours include a selection of wine, chocolate, cheese, cider and strawberry tastings at farm houses and cellar doors in Melbourne’s premier wine regions. Our gourmet picnic lunches and afternoon teas will satisfy your taste buds after a day of sipping and sampling some of the finest fresh produce these beautiful regions have to offer!
