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.

We had a great day exploring the Mornington peninsula with our fantastic host Oscar. By far the best winery tour I've been on, Oscar was friendly and professional and made our day perfect in everyway- nothing was to much trouble! Highly recommend and I plan to book all my winery tours in the future with these guys, you truly wont get any better.

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!

Michael was a fantastic tour guide. The bus we were in was very comfortable and he provided not only water but sparkling water along with a map of the valley and hand sanitizer. He is very knowledgeable on the vineyards and their wines. Very relaxing but VERY informative tour. I have been on many wine tours but this was the best by far. I would recommend Michael and Grape Explorations to anyone and everyone! Can't wait to go back!
