      Great day winetasting in Bellarine
      We highly recommend this tour! It was an excellent way to go from one vineyard to another, and our tour guide was so informative and fun. Be sure to make bookings for winetasting beforehand, i.e. plan ahead where to go using the Hop on hop off-timetable for the bus. We managed to go to three wineries, and I think that is maximum what you can squeeze in to fit with the ferry from and to Melbourne.

      Amazing day in the Yarra Valley!
      We had a wonderful experience with Sara from Hop it. Prior to our visit, I asked for recommendations . She came up with very nice suggestions. We went to: - Punt Road: they have a lot of Fujis and Gala Apple, so you can also taste their cider, not only the wines! - Chandon: I am not a big fan of sparkling but I really wanted to visit this commercial winery. Actually I wasn’t disappointed : the view is amazing and the place is very nice! A must in my opinion, even if it’s more crowded compared to other wineries. - Tokar estate: we had the wine x chocolate pairing, perfect after lunch at Chandon ! - Dominique Portet: we had the best tasting experience there, because the staff was really amazing ! They really take the time to explain and spend time with you. Thanks again Sara!

      A highly recommended day tour of the Yarra Valley
      This is highly recommended. Jon and his wife have an excellent formula to visit Yarra Valley. It was well organized and professional and good value for money. We did the Green route and loved all four options we chose including 2 wine estates and a dairy and an apple farm. What a wonderful experience.

      Finally, a wine bus!
      Despite the weather we had a great time and in fact, the hop on/off bus is great to do in the worse weather as you know exactly when to come out for your pick up and you’re dropped right at the entrance. No getting soaked in the rain! We will definitely use again in Melbourne! Good mix of stops too across all wineries, breweries and distilleries.

      Best wine tour, with the best host!
      The most incredible wine tour we’ve ever had! (And we’ve had a lot) Ali was the loveliest, most accommodating and kind host we’ve ever had. We loved her energy and her friendliness along with her knowledge of the bellarine peninsular. Will 100% be coming back and requesting Ali as our host.

      A Great Day Out
      A great day out. Well organised, punctual and our guide/driver John was excellent. It’s a very easy way to explore the Yarra Valley, and surprisingly fit a lot in over the day. We visited 4 wineries and included lunch and the day is spaced out well. Thank you John and the team at Hop It.

      Terrific Designated Driver in Yara Valley
      This is a well organized outfit that has obviously established good relations with the wineries on their tours. My wife and I took the Yarra Valley Red Route tour yesterday after an early morning balloon ride (which was fantastic). Our driver, Sarah, coordinated with us ahead of time to understand where we wanted to visit and provide info on each place while we drove there. The bus was clean (tho a little cramped) and Sarah was outstanding - very attentive, knowledgeable and always on time. She even went out of her way to get us each a bottle of beer when one of our planned brewery stops was closed - and she stopped on the ride back to the city to let us out much closer to our hotel. Thank you, Sarah!

      Great way to do the Yarra Valley!
      We had a great day! Sara could not be more helpful and very friendly. She is very knowledgeable about all the wineries. It’s very hard to choose where to stop, as so many great options but Sara can definitely provide some great advice to help you out. You will have a great day and Sara will store all your purchases along the way.

    Loved Hop It so much I came back for a 2nd time with different friends! Great way to build your own wine tour to go to the style of venues you want to go to - we went for a mix of posh and more down to earth places and really enjoyed it. I would recommend pre-booking your place at the winery’s at least a week before so you can get the places you want to align with the hop it times. Top tip is for your last stop you can squeeze in 4 pillars and P&Js wine as they’re across the road from each other. We liked sparkling wine so went to Domain Chandon but we much preferred Coombes sparkling wines and the experience there. Chandon does have great views but you can see those if other people stop at Chandon. Thanks Sara for another great trip!

    Had a wonderful trip with Malaika for a Hop On Hop Off tour this weekend. Huge thank you to John who was able to squeeze us in last minute and help with our booking. We often do group tours to Melbourne's wine region but this has to be our new favourite due to the autonomy you get without being rushed at all to enjoy your time at some beautiful wineries. The bus was fantastic, couldn't believe it was half the price of what we normally pay for a standard public bus wine tour. Would 100% recommend for the best experience at half the usual cost.

    Jon was an absolutely wonderful host and driver on our Yarra Valley wine/gin tour. Such a great idea to do a hop on hop off itinerary with an hour at each venue of your choice - with guidance from him and his wife. We enjoyed all the cellar doors and of course four pillars gin as well as his great playlist. Would recommend to anyone who’s looking for a good value, fun tour

    A fun and tailored experience! Jon was super knowledgeable about the area and gave us suggestions on where to go. So glad we took his advice because we ended up tasting so many different wines and were well looked after by the venues - shout out to the team Payton and Jones! We got text updates throughout the day to let us know what time the bus was coming and Jon even rang up venues for us to make reservations. Without a doubt the best service I’ve had and will definitely be using Hop it again 😊

    Fantastic trip to Yarra Valley wine area with our excellent driver/guide Jon. Choose three vineyards but ended up at four. Our favourite was Coombs, however Rockford and Dominique Portet came a close second. Also visited Oakridge which was highly recommended. Transport and pick up service between vineyards was excellent and went off like clockwork. On the way back to Melbourne all passengers were happy and a little bit louder than on the outward journey. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to visit the Yarra Valley and a great experience

    I loved this experience. We saw some of the most beautiful countryside, tasted some supremely delicious wines, and all done with little to no effort on my part. Hop It does all the heavy lifting. Our driver, Jon who is also the owner, was a delightful man to have as our guide. He was honest, inciteful, funny, and for some reason made me think of the Game of Thrones character Tormund. Probably due to his red beard. If you fancy wine tours done properly, use Hop It.

    Just loved going to the wineries and gin distillery , relaxing and sampling the different wines and gin. It was a beautiful day and the hills and vineyards looked great. We had great people explain the different flavors and how they were made, they were very knowledgeable . The four wineries we went to were excellent and would thoroughly recommend them. Four Pillars, Boat O'craigo, Innocent Bystander and Giant Steps. Our driver Jon was very good and funny. We have been to the Yarra Valley before , but it was great to be chauffeured around, the hop on hop off bus is the way to go.

    Hop It was a great way to explore more of the Yarra Valley without having to drive.
    The city pick-up was really convenient as we were coming from inner city suburbs.
    Mark was our driver for the day, he was great, lots of fun and great communication!

    We had an amazing day!

    We kicked off with Mark meeting us at the Grand Hyatt, in Melbourne. He gave us thorough run down about how Hop It run with multiple groups on the day.

    We headed out to Yarra Valley, Mark was really knowledgeable about the region and each of the stops we had.

    Mark gave us our pick up times from each spot followed up with a text message reminder. He also kept our wine purchases in the van for collection at the end of the day.

    We had the best time chatting to the other people on the tour and on the drive back we all got into the bangers playing in the van.

    The the stop at Domaine Chandon, the place, the wine and the staff are amazing.
    On the other hand Jon is an excellent host, during the trip he kept all the passengers integrated in just one Team.

    I do really recommend take a tour to Yarra Valley with Hop On Hop off.
