We loved this - was so much fun. I was wanting to organise a private charters for my besties hens day and so glad i came across these guys. They made everything so simple and let us choose which wineries we wanted to stop at. We didnt expect the driver to be so knowledgable but Kyle was amazing. He had such a great sense of humor and really added to the day. Anyone looking to organise a great day at the Mornington Peninsula Wineries - give these guys a call as they are great.

My husband and I chose this day tour as we had never been to the Mornington Peninsula and we were also wanting to go on the gondola so this was the reason for picking this tour and we are so glad we did. Our tour guide Peter was just brilliant, he had a lot of knowledge of all the places we went to and was also very layed back which made us all feel so relaxed. We couldn't fault anything and even got to see an echidna crossing the road and a huge roo jumping fences but the highlights were the bay cruise as you could either sit back and chill out or make your way to the upper deck for fab pics and dolphin spotting. We were even presented with a huge box filled with so many different goodies for lunch. We took half of it back home as there was just so much of it but was absolutely lovely and the other highlight was the gondala. It's another great photo opportunity with gorgeous views over Melbourne. The brewery was also great, we were given a tasting paddle each which had 4 different beers to try and it was also a great way to interact with the rest of the guests. We wouldn't hesitate in doing this tour again and neither should you, you won't regret it.

I've been on wine tours in the past but this was incredible! Matt, our tour guide, was such a gem! He had lots of knowledge about the region and also great relationships with each of the people at the various stops. The wineries were great but the perk of getting to go to a brewery and cinder distillery had us really pleased by the end of the day ;) The lunch was delicious as well and very filling. Overall, this experience was incredible and we got to see some great scenery. We certainly got more than our money's worth.
