Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fran was the perfect host. A luxury experience with an array of wine, gin and cider. Fran was very transparent and happy to tailor the experience to your needs.

Fran is the consummate host and curated a fantastic day for us to experience the best the Bellarine has to offer.

We had planned a day trip for our parents to enjoy the Bellarine wineries so needed to manage accessibility and comfort issues. It was super easy to organise the trip, work through an itinerary and find a date with Fran. She suggested a number days and venues that would be best and enable us to get more personal service from the wineries.

Fran picked us up on time from our different accomodation in her luxury van - plenty of room and air con and importantly a variety of snacks to get us through the day.

Everyone seems to know Fran at the wineries we visited which meant we received a dedicated and personal service wherever we went.

Fran is a wealth of knowledge on everything Bellarine. She also has an effervescent and bubbly personality which makes the day a fun one in her company.

Franscene Bellarine is a superb, personal and luxury service providing a fantastic experience. If you are thinking about a wine or lunch tour on the Bellarine, I can't recommend her enough.

Fran was very prompt with her communication. I wanted to join a tour on my own and she made it happen. The group I joined were extremely friendly and we had a wonderful day out. Fran organised for us to visit the best venues in the Bellarine, allowing sufficient time to enjoy each place. Thank you Fran!

I could not fault the service we received from Franscene Bellarine. The entire day was a wonderful experience. Frans' selection of the wineries that we visited was excellent. Her knowledge of the Bellarine was amazing. I would thoroughly recommend her for any experience that you wanted to have in this area. 15 out of 10.

From the moment our group was picked up by Fran until the end of our wonderful day out I must say I could not have asked for more. Fran had thought of every little thing that we might need and bent over backwards to look after us. We were a group of artists and enjoyed being shown the best vistas for sketching and enjoying wine and food. What more could we have asked for? I highly recommend Fran for a day of pampering and genuine care about ensuring that you have a day to remember.

Had a great weekend away on the Bellarine Peninsula with the wonderful Fran showing us the sights & treating us to a fun filled lunch & winery tour. Nothing was too much trouble. She even organized our accommodation at Salty Shack, St Leonard's which was perfect for us.
Thanks Fran!! We all had a ball and will definitely be back. xx
