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.

On our recent cruise around Australia and New Zealand, we made a call to the Port of Melbourne. Contacted Michael at Grape Explorations to see if he would be available for my wife and I to join a tour on the day we were in port.

Although he already had a tour booked for that day, he contacted the other couple to see if we could join them and they were happy to have us be included. Michael picked us up at the port, picked them up in the city and we were off for a tour of 3 wineries and gin distillery.

What a perfect day it was. The 5 of us had a wonderful time together and some great conversations as we took in the beautiful countryside of the Yarra Valley and sampled some excellent wines and gins. Michael was incredible as both a guide and host. Her was both friendly and knowledgeable, his vehicle was very comfortable, he went out of his way to make sure we had an exceptional outing and that we arrived back to our ship on time for re-boarding. My wife and I agree that it was our favorite excursion on our 2-week cruise. As an added bonus, we became friends with the couple from the UK, exchanged emails and stay in communication.

Thanks yet again Michael for another great wine and food experience, this time in the Yarra Valley. This is our second booking with Grape Explorations and as with our previous Mornington Peninsula experience we were just as happy. Michael is a great guide and took us to some of those little winery gems that you would not consider visiting. Michael is brilliant and makes the whole day enjoyable. The vehicle is very comfortable and has plenty of room for the wine that is collected along the way. Whether it is the Yarra Valley or Mornington Peninsula I could not recommend Grape Explorations more highly. Thanks again and hope to catch up again. Perhaps Margaret River (only joking). Chris, Margaret & Tristan

The best way to visit and experience some of the unique wineries in the region. Michael was simply brilliant and catered for us in every way. The wines we tasted were all top quality from some of the boutique producers that know and love the wine they have created. Just as good as the wines we were the wine makers and staff we met who clearly had a passion for what they do. The lunch at Pier 10 included in the tour was also excellent. It included a tasty grazing plate for the two of us to start with. My wife had the barramundi which was generous and perfectly cooked. For me it was the duck confit which was also excellent. A glass of the local was was also included. The garden settings of many of the places we visited were stunning and added to the overall experience. The vehicle was excellent and our host Michael was friendly, knowledgeable and made you feel welcome and as special guests of the places we visited. Could not recommend the tour more for couples or a group of friends that want to enjoy some of what the Mornington Peninsula has to offer. Chris & Margaret.

Wanted to say thank you so much again to Oscar and the Grape Explorations Australia team for being the best hosts that we could ever ask for!

Oscar went above and beyond for everyone on our trip. His passion, energy, attention to detail & punctuality is unmatched to any body else you'll ever meet.

If you're reading this, give their team a ring as soon as you can and make a booking because you won't regret it! Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful day exploring the peninsula wine region with Michael from ‘Grapeexplorationsaustralia’. Three superb wineries, including a delicious lunch at ‘Pier 10’. Michael picked us up in a very comfortable mini bus, really looked after us and ensured our day went smoothly and everyone enjoyed themselves. We all finished the day very happy and agreed it was a great decision to go with this company.

Well what can I say, on behalf of the crew that have just returned from an “absolutely fabulous” wine tasting tour around the Mornington Peninsula, where Michael was a great host, and we had the best time. It was an informal tour of a great wine region of Victoria, with enough information to make the experience informative for a bunch of mates who enjoy a great time and few sips of the old grape juice. The music selection (that we were all tasked with providing) was an absolute gem of an idea and went down well with the team as we travelled between wineries ( Bros - I owe you nothing was a particular favourite). I am sure there are many other wine tours around the area, of which we saw a few, however, from experience we have to give Michael and this tour an outstanding mark of approval. Give this a go you won’t be disappointed - trust me.

We went on a Grape Explorations wine tour in the Yarra Valley with some friends and I have to say the experience was fantastic from start to finish. From the moment we met Michael he made us feel so welcome, from complimentary little tour packs to personalised playlists to get the tunes and atmosphere going on the bus during the tour. He truly went out of his way to make sure the experience was unique, enjoyable and most of all, memorable. His knowledge of the area, wines and wineries was very informative and his fun personality really added to the whole experience. The wineries we visited were beautiful and the wine was fantastic. I would highly recommend Michael and Grape Explorations wine tours and am definitely looking forward to booking our next tour with him in the New Year!
