My wife surprised me with a wine tour for my birthday. Stephen picked us up from the hotel and was amazing. Outstanding knowledge of wine and the local area. I'm actually still on the tour but couldn't wait to share. If your even thinking about this tour stop, just book now. You won't regret it.

Paul is terriric - I've done 2 tours with him, one to yarra and one to mornington. He's knowledgeable, kind and a great conversationalist. The tour is fun, relaxing and you really get a sense of the area. I'd highly recommend him.

Paul is a brilliant host, we spent a fabulous day in Mornington Penninsula. We visited Moorooduc where Helen served up some lovely Chardonnay, and as we are not normally red drinkers, introduced us to Piñot Noir, we bought a few bottles and a lovely wine cat book. Then it was onto Tanglewood Estate, where we met Ken who showed us... More

Thanks Mo M for your review and it was a pleasure to have you travel with us on our Mornington Peninsula Food and Wine Daytour recently. You experienced a diversity of wines with each vineyard doing something different. The lack of commercialism is a strength of the region and generally allows for quality time with the staff there.

We did the Yarra Valley Tour and animal sanctuary visit with Stephen and another couple we picked up along the way. Stephen was incredibly knowledgeable both on the Melbourne and Yarra Valley areas, as well as on wine! He was very friendly and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him. For those taking the wildlife tour, our... More

Great tour of the Mornington Peninsula. Lovely wineries, scenery and food. The tour guide (Stephen) was very knowledgeable. It was a full day but we never felt rushed.

Thanks EH for taking the time to review your recent Mornington Peninsula Food and Wine Daytour and so happy to hear you had a great day. It's a terrific region and its lack of commercialisation is one of its strengths. The combination of wine, cheese, chocolates and the terrific a la carte lunch at Salix is the perfect balance. And...

We liked everything about it! The vineyards selected were the best ones. The guide Stephen was informative,helpful and friendly. The lunch at Yerring Station was the best meal we had on our 22 day Australia trip.I would surely do it again if visiting Melbourne.

Excellent day tour. Some great vineyards with impeccable Australian wines. I got instantly famished by amazing cheese platters.

Last Sunday 10th August,we enjoyed the most amazing day touring the wineries in the Yarra Valley in absolute comfort and with the very knowledgeable Stephen, keeping us well informed of each winery that we visited. There wasn't one single time, that when we asked a question, that he didn't know the answer. Not only was Stephen, very informed of the... More

We had a fabulous time in Yarra Valley. Paul is a smashing chap - very friendly, attentive, professional and knowledgeable about wine and the Valley itself. He takes you to all the great wineries including De Botoli while other big tour operators don't.
