        Fabulous Day out - highly recommend
        What a fantastic day. We did a private tour across three wineries and Yarra Valley Dairy. Mike customized the tour for us and even did a few impromptu stops when time allowed. Mike’s knowledge of the region and wines is incredible. Not to mention how personable he is. Felt like we were on a tour with a friend. I could almost forgive him for being a Richmond supporter. Highly recommend. An excellent experience for first time visitors to Melbourne.

        Fantastically relaxing trip!
        Mike’s Wine Tours is a fantastic option for an amazing, stress free day! All we had to do was pick a date and region and Mike took care of the rest! He has a amazing relationship with the vendors which is apparent in how well we were all treated! He also has a amazing knowledge of wine himself and helps you make the most out of the day! This is our second time traveling with Mike and we’re definitely making it an annual tradition!

        Great service issued with a friendly smile & great knowledge
        Mike took a group of 12 of us to the Yarra Valley to visit 4 wineries. All interactions with Mike while organising were easy. He was helpful & easy to get in contact with at all times. Pickup & drop off on the day was to the exact times Mike said they would be and that set the standard for everything else after that, just perfect. While making our way to the Yarra Valley, Mike was friendly & provided lots of knowledge about the area & the wineries. His experience really added to the day. Each winery was great, the food was amazing! We, as a group, throughly enjoyed the day & will definitely avail of Mikes Wine Tours again. Thank you Mike!

        The best day
        My partner and I recently had a private, full day tour with Mike around the Daylesford / Hepburn spring area. Initially, our trip was booked for 2021, but thanks to COVID this was rescheduled to 2022. Mike stayed in touch with me during that time to let me know he hadn't forgotten about my booking, which was fantastic. Again, due to COVID, the itinerary changed a couple of times due to places closing etc. but the final itinerary was amazing! It ended up being more of a foodie/drinks tour rather than just wine, but I wouldn't have changed it. The experience that Mike provided was 5 star, and his knowledge of the area was unbeatable. I look forward to taking more tours with Mike in the future and would highly recommend him to everyone. Thanks Mike :)

        Perfect Christmas Day Trip
        Had the best time with Mike on our winery tour in the Yarra Valley! It was so easy and straightforward to organise, all we had to do was show up on time the morning of! We opted for the winery choices to be a surprise and were so impressed with the four chosen for us! Mike's great rapport with the wineries was evident and we had fantastic service at all our stops including a delicious lunch! Mike was also very willing to give us some options and flexibility throughout the day while managing to stay on schedule! We will definitely be returning customers!

      Amazing day out with Mike's Wine Tours. Our group of 9 had a blast with two wineries, a gin distillery and an amazing lunch and craft beer tasting at Holgate Brewery. Mike was the perfect tour guide and his passion for ensuring everyone had a good time was top notch. The second "unique" winery visit was a standout and is virtually a hidden secret known by Mike. Ripper day our sampling an amazing wine region.

      Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about your recent Macedon Ranges Private Group Wine Tour from Melbourne which I appreciate very much. I am delighted to read that you all had a 'Blast' and felt that your tour was an 'Amazing and Ripper Day Out'. I love sharing my vast knowledge of wine and the wine regions I visit on my tours with my guests to ensure you have a truly enjoyable and insightful wine tour experience with Mike's Wine Tours. This sees me creating exceptional tour itineraries to cater for everyone's tastes like we did on your tour by visiting 'Hidden Secret' wineries and including Wine, Craft Beer and Gin Tasting all on the one day and complimented by a great hotel pub lunch on my Fully Inclusive Winery Tours from Melbourne. As this was your 2nd Wine Tour with me, it was great to see familiar faces once again and have a laugh throughout the day with many jokes and great music with your wonderful and friendly group of people. I'll now look forward to seeing you all again in the not too distant future and I look forward to meeting up with you again when you are next in Melbourne. Until then, please take care, stay safe and well and thank you for your support of me and Mike's Wine Tours! Best Wishes, Mike.

      This was definitely a memorable day, every aspects of the tour was just perfect, unlike other tours where it's normally rushed, Mike's winery tour is more personal and intimate. Mike is also an experienced sommelier and he will teach you the true way of tasting and enjoying a good wine, which made the trip a lot more special. Truly one of the top tour guides in Australia.

      We were visiting Australia for the first time and wanted to experience a wine tour as my wife Debbie and I are keen on exploring new wines.

      We wanted a small tour of around 10 people, and Mikes Wine Tour in Melbourne offered that as well as a trip to Hanging Rock, which after the 70s movie is one of my most sought after destinations so the combination of a a small wine tour and this iconic place was enough for us to sign up.

      Mike's tour is so much more personal than the vast array of other tours that all go to the very popular and busy Yarra vineyards whereas Mike takes you to the beautiful and much less well known Macedon Ranges and vineyards.

      Mike is the perfect host and we set our with him and a party of 7 to the Macedon wine region. All along the way Mike imparts amazing local knowledge of wine and the history of the area. The trip was to take in three very unique wineries tasting up to 50 wines. There was a meal at Hanging Rock as well as time to walk up the spectacular and historic rock taking in the breathtaking scenery.

      We stopped first at Mount Charlie winery where we were met by the owner and wine connoisseur Trevor. We sat on his veranda decking overlooking the beautiful vineyards where mike took us through a few techniques to make the wine tasting more fun and interesting. The host Trevor took us through his array of wines, giving us generous glasses and providing us with a first hand insight into the wine making from a man that has dedicated his life to making amazing wines. He also provided fresh olives from his land and beautiful cheese and crackers to go with the wine. Trevor makes a truly divine Tempranillo as well as an exceptional Malbec. You will never experience a more personal wine taste than this unless you sign up to Mike's tour

      The second stop was for lunch at the beautiful and mysterious Hanging Rock. The restaurant offered exceptional choice of food and bent over backwards to accommodate us. The standard was excellent and the portions were large. After lunch we walked up to the mysterious and incredibly beautiful Hanging Rock where we took in the scenery and were able to take many photographs of this truly unforgettable place

      From here Mike took us to the Hanging Rock winery where I lost count of the number of wines that we tasted. The hospitality was second to none and Mike's impressive wine knowledge was an added bonus. At all venues we were greeted by the most warm and sincere hospitality and the patrons were happy to share their wealth of knowledge about the local area and it's wines. It was here that I bought their Gold medal winning shiraz which was a true highlight of this vineyard.

      The final stop was at an incredible winery called Paramoor which was set out in a beautiful old barn with sofa's, open fires and the smell of leather. The owner Will took us through his full range of wines and explained in great depth how they cultivated them and how they had been rated in the high 90s by the wine experts. The wines were named after different members of the family and were truly excellent, his Cabernet -Shiraz was exceptional as were so many of his family wines and the hospitality was out of this world.

      Mike offers a very different tour to all others on the market. His personal knowledge of wine and the region is second to none and the incredible wines and personal attention provided at these magnificent wineries have made this tour the finest I have ever had the pleasure to try. I have been on wine tours all over the world, extensively in France, Italy and Spain as well as California and this was by far the best. If you love wine, and you want quality with a personal touch then Mike's wine tour is a must for you.

      Next time I am in Melbourne the very first thing that I will do is book another tour with Mike's Wine Tours.

      Thanks Mike

      Thank you for your recent review of your Macedon Ranges Boutique Winery Tour with Mike's Wine Tours which I appreciate very much. I love taking my guests to many unknown smaller wineries where you get to meet the owners, winemakers and vineyard managers on our Private and Intimate Macedon Ranges Wine Tasting Tours from Melbourne where the tour is scheduled and conducted at a very leisurely and relaxed pace for my tour groups to ensure we avoid larger tour groups where possible on every tour. As my very valued guests, Mike's Wine Tours provides you with a wine tour experience that is different to most others while ensuring you sample great wines, enjoy a delicious lunch with a full glass of wine and learn about wine and the people who make the wine for our enjoyment on all of our tours especially in the Macedon Ranges or Yarra Valley wine growing regions of Victoria. I hope it will not be too long before I have the opportunity to be of service to you all once again and thank you very much for your kind words to "Highly Recommend" Mike's Wine Tours' to others which I appreciate very much. Best Wishes, Mike.

      We spent the day touring the Macedon Ranges - so close to Melbourne but so much to see and do. Wineries, lunch and Hanging Rock visit just made the day wonderful. W e were impressed by the service given by Mike and his interest in getting everyone involved on the day.
      He just doesn't do the Macedon Ranges and every tour is individually designed for those involved.

      My mother and sister visit me in Melbourne once a year and always include a wine tour during thier stay, it was the first time we saw the Macedon Ranges advertised and decided to give it a whirl - particularly due to the inclusion of a stop at Hanging Rock.
      I can tell you that this Wine Tour was the highlight of our holiday and the best that we've experienced. When Mike came to collect us he was immediately engaging, friendly and put us all at ease.
      Previous tours we have been on the guides have been either over-the-top or not overly interested in our general experience. Mike initiated conversation, he gave us a thorough understanding of the Macedon Ranges, the history, his own experience there and showed a genuine passion for what he was doing - including the wine!
      You could tell that the wineries had been hand picked based on customer service, passion for the business and, ofcourse, the quality of wine. We were completely enchanted by the first family-run winery where we were treated to a first hand glimpse of the production process. The owners were open and friendly, the location - exquisite - especially if you like to see the 'real Australia'. With a homely ambiance, we were able to wander around the property, enjoy the butterflies and the landscape with genuine comfort.
      A stop for lunch at a cafe with, if I may be so bold, some of the best sausages I've ever had! (and this from a lover of sausages!) in the Hanging Rock Park. This is more than a wine tour, as we were able to take a walk up to hanging rock after lunch and wander through the museum. The views on the walk up to, and from, Hanging Rock are picture perfect, and it resulted in the wine tour being more than just that - it is an opportunity to see a unique element of Victoria.
      Did I mention the wine? The next stop was the Hanging Rock Winery, with over 20 wines to sample (may I suggest the Cab Sav!) again, you could see Mike's strong relationship with the Cellar Door Master, which made the experience more personal and therefore, more rewarding.
      On our final stop... we just didnt want to leave! The rather animated owners were at the ready to go through their selection of devine wine, have banter with the customers and seemed truly appreciative of the patronage.
      Then... to finish a perfect day, we all sat (with Mike) in the sunshine with good music playing the background, a small lake to overlook and an incredible cheese platter along with a vino or two. Again, Mike seemed part of the party - engaging everyone, providing us with local knowledge and being an excellent guide.
      If you are looking to experience something that is about true local talent, if you want to get away from the generic wine tour, have a more intimate experience and see beautiful countryside while sampling unique wines that you cannot purchase at your 'Dan Murphy's' and 'BWS's, while having a tour guide that is open, genuine, passionate and knowledgeable - then this is the tour for you!
      Mike has travelled around the world and knows his stuff - we all had a fantastic time and we will definitely be back!
      And incase I didnt mention it before... try the sausages for lunch! :)
      THANKS MIKE!
