We had a terrific day doing the self guided bike tour with Allison through the Mornington Peninsula - great local knowledge and recommendations and gave us lots of flexibility to go at our own pace. Highly recommend!

Hi Mike
Sounds like you had a great time on the Mornington Peninsula self-guided cycle tour. It was lovely to meet you both and hear about your mini kid free break, it sounded divine.
The weather was perfect for enjoying the Mornington Peninsula on a bike whilst sampling the delicious local wine and produce. Thank you for the terrific review.

Cheers
Allison and Libbie

I had a great time with Allison in the Yarra Valley. We were not able to complete the bike tour due to the inclement weather. This did not stop us from having fun and seeing all the sites. Allison was very flexible and made the most of the day. We even got to stop at Four Pillars Gin Distillery.

HI Olivia,
It was a pleasure to show you around the Yarra Valley, visiting the local wineries, chocolate factory and seeing how gin is made. The rain, wind and hail certainly stopped us enjoying the bikes however we all had a fun day touring.
Thanks for the great review.

Cheers
Allison and Libbie

My husband and I have done quite a bit of self-guided cycle trips and guiding others on trips as well, so we weren't necessarily your typical clients given the amount of research we had already done; however we relied on the recommendations of Ali and Libby for which wineries and stops to make and which to skip. They provided maps with plastic sheet covers (the kind you buy at an office supply store), water bottles, one panier bag for each of us, which was ample space for the 3 days of biking we were doing.
They were very responsive by text and phone during our time on the Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island with our questions, and helpful with picking us up and taking us to an even closer train station.
We were impressed with the mechanical quality of the mountain bikes. They were the perfect bikes for our tour given there are many dirt and rooty paths that run parallel to the roads on the Mornington Peninsula.
We were very happy with the services they provided, and even though we ran into bad weather the second day, it made for truly memorable experiences, and overall the bikes held up well and we had good directions.
We would definitely recommend going with VineTours!

Thank you for the great review. You had done great research on the area and it was a pleasure to guide you to the places we love to stop and explore. The weather was not perfect but we loved the way you made the most of the adventure and were still able to see our beautiful Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island.

Cheers Allison and Libbie

Libby and Alli go above and beyond to tailor the day to be memorable and to suit your needs. The rail trail section selected highlighted our diverse bush and countryside and minimised the uphill effect with two stop overs at boutique wineries. At our lunch stop we got into the spirit of Oaks Day with fun, laughter, fascinators, delicious food and shared wines.The bikes were super comfortable to ride and were in excellent condition.I need to do more escapes from Melbourne!

Hi Rose. Thanks for the lovely review. The Warburton Rail trail really showcases the diverse scenery of the Yarra Valley. We also enjoyed the day with the Oaks Day spirit. Hope to see you again for another escape from Melbourne - maybe on the Bellarine or Mornington Peninsula!
Cheers

This was one of the best tours I've ever done. From the time I booked Allison and Libby were in touch to make sure I had the right meet up information- right down to the train schedule and track number. I was picked up at the destination train station and was surprised to learn that I was the only one booked for the tour. Instead of cancelling, the tour went ahead and I felt like I spent the day with friends. Beautiful scenery, great company, wonderful wines and food and a special surprise for Oaks Day! I couldn't have asked for more and have already recommended this tour to a number of people. Get off the bus! This is a must do!
