The wine tour with Paul to Yarra Valley wineries was the best gift I've ever received. Delicious wine and food, and, of course, a great tour guide made my Birthday unforgettable. I would definitely recommend Vinetrekker!

Stephen managed this private full day drive exceptionally well. Impossibly, we avoided all of the giant bus tours along the entire route for the entire day. We traveled inland to understand the agricultural nature of Victoria then returned from the 12 Apostles via the Great Ocean Road. Our vehicle was spacious and in great condition. Stephen was fully knowledgable on... More

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.

Thanks Lisa for your review and it was great having you travel with us to the Mornington Peninsula recently. You certainly got a sense of the difference between it and the Yarra Valley, with its lack of commercialism a great feature. We look forward to having you travel with Vinetrekker again when you're next back in Melbourne. All the best. More

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
