Excellent day travelling to the Mornington Peninsula. The two of us were picked up from Melbourne CBD and we were very fortunate to be the only people on the tour. Our guide was THE BEST showing us some of the suburbs of Melbourne on the way to the Peninsula. We stopped off at three wineries where we met some great... More

From the quality of service to the quality interactions, Vinetrekker proved to be an AMAZING tour provider. The exclusivity of our experience was well handled. It paid to have an excellent driver who was knowledgeable about the area, well-versed in wine tasting, had close connections with the different vendors that we visited, and did not cut corners with regards to...

I travel a tremendous amount and at times have a day to spend in a location in between meetings. I was in Melbourne Australia and through my hotel (The Olsen, also fantastic) got the recommendation of Vinetrekker and Paul (the owner and a main guide). I originally planned to spend a few hours in the Yarra Valley via a splurge... More

I have always heard about Yarra Valley. There is no better way than to visit it through this Tour. The service provided by Paul was just perfect. Professional, friendly, kind. His passion for the interaction with people and his passion for the great wine and food makes totally the difference. Choose the best for your best. It will be an... More

FANTASTIC. This is the only company I know of that does the combined wildlife and wine tour of the Yarra Valley. We were not terribly interested in tasting wine starting at 10 am. What better way to see as much as possible than this combination. The wildlife sanctuary is really special. I'm sure you can find other opportunities to see... More

Three of us were booked on the Mornington Peninsula tour with Vintrekker. At 9am we were picked up from our hotel to start the day. We were the only people booked on the tour, so we essentially had a private tour! Joseph was our guide and he was knowlegable, friendly and so accommodating. He also put up with the selfie... More

Thanks Crowebarus for your booking and follow up review and delighted to hear the 3 of you had a wonderful day touring the Mornington Peninsula. It's a delightful piece of Victoria and especially at this time of year when the cellar doors aren't as busy, you get a little more time to engage with the staff. Joseph is a terrific... More

It was my dads 50th birthday so we decided to do the balloon ride and wine tour with Vinetrekker. The scenery in the valley is second to none and our guide Stephen was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. He made the trip what it was. Can't wait to come back!
