I went on this tour last Friday with a small group of friends. Steve, our guide and driver was most professional and friendly, and made sure he looked after all of us. He took us to some of the loveliest boutique wineries in the Mornington Peninsula areas, and told us a bit of story for each one of them before... More

This is my second tour with Vinetrekker and I was not disappointed. Stephen, our guide and driver was a fountain of knowledge. He arrived excatly at agreed time. My friend was actually running late and couldn't make it to The Langham for the pick-up and Stephen recommended she goes straight to the next pick-up station which worked out perfectly. Thanks...

Thanks Maria for your review and delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your recent Mornington Peninsula Food and Wine Daytour. It does have more of a boutiquey feel than the Yarra Valley and getting access to owners is a real plus. It's a terrific time of year to be visiting now, especially with tanks filled with fermenting fruit. The... More

Stephen, our host, driver and guide was excellent. His enthusiasm and knowledge was excellent and the whole day was such an enjoyable experience we couldn't recommend booing through Vinetrekkers enough. The day for the five of us (plus Stephen) started at two of the smaller wineries (Coldstream and Medhurst) and the variety, quality and friendliness were all excellent. Next up... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour through the Yarra valley with our guide Stephen... Who is essentially the Australian equivalent of David Attenborough, but for wine instead of nature. Lots of variety in vineyards, plenty of sampling, mind blowing cheese platter. I definitely recommend!!!!

We did an excellent trip to the Mornington Peninsula, visiting 5 vineyards, with an excellent driver/guide whose first name was Stephen. We were picked up punctually at our hotel, and although there were just 4 of us, the tour went ahead. The lunch was excellent and the choice of vineyards was varied, but the wines on tasting were first class.
