Overall a pretty good tour. A few recommendations: 1- It would help a lot if some kind of a snack (cheese, etc.) was offered to clean our pallets before trying new wines (the first 2-3 vineyards did not offer this) 2- Ask the participants what kind of wines they like in advance. I do not much care for white wines... More

This tour was just brilliant. From sampling fine wines from four wineries to tasting delectable chocolates. Joseph, our tour guide was the perfect choice as his knowledge of the Mornington Peninsula was very informative. He did not rush us at any stage. He was an outstanding guide. Thankyou so very much for a wonderful day. I will definitely be telling... More

3 friends went wine tasting on a cold wet day in the Macedon ranges and had a great time. Our driver and guide was very knowledgeable and was good company. The wineries we visited all offered different things (including a totally organic winery). I would highly recommend this trip.
