Owner description: Mike's full day wine tours of the Macedon Ranges and Yarra Valley are one of the best Melbourne day tours. Our guided wine tours are fully inclusive of all transport, wine tastings and a Gourmet Lunch of choice which is served with a glass of wine. We visit Boutique Wineries on all our tours and Hanging Rock on the Macedon Ranges tour which provides our guests with personal service and a truly memorable experience of visiting Melbourne.

Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Mike but we did get to meet David who was brilliant and gave us Kiwis a fantastic introduction to some of the wineries in the area. Paramoor Winery was definitely the highlight of the tour and made extra special after David organised a surprise chocolate birthday cake for our daughters 21st birthday and Will the owner gave us a tour of the winery and explained how he makes his wine. We also enjoyed our visit to Hanging Rock. Also nice to be part of a small tour as opposed to a large bus load of people. Fully recommend Mikes wine Tours!!!

It is great to hear that we delivered to you and your daughter a thoroughly enjoyable 21st Birthday celebration wine tour to The Macedon Ranges and Hanging Rock.

David is a great support to me when I am unable to be your tour guide and his commitment to providing his guests with exceptional customer service and creating a fun and friendly atmosphere ensures everyone a memorable wine tour experience.

He consistently goes above and beyond his role to give you a "Brilliant" wine tour and with the added bonus of having great relationships with many of the wineries that we visit such as Paramoor on this occasion, it provides you with added extra's of meeting the winemakers and touring their wineries which is why our small group wine tours are so popular when compared to the larger commercial wine tour companies and bigger winery establishments.

Throw in Hanging Rock Nature Reserve as well and you can see why Mike's Wine Tours' are the choice of so many people who are seeking to experience something a little different.

Rest assured that I will pass on your complimentary and positive comments to David and Will and we hope to see you all back again very soon for your next important wine tour celebration and thank you sincerely for giving up your time to provide your wonderful feedback which I appreciate very much..

Best Wishes,
Mike.

Thank you for providing your thoughts about your recent Mike's Wine Tours' experience and also for recommending my Melbourne Wine Tours to others which I appreciate very much.

By offering great wines with excellent food to match to the relatively lesser known Macedon Ranges Wine Region only one hour from Melbourne and providing my guests with a fun, friendly and relaxed atmosphere to enjoy their wine tasting is a great way to experience a day tour from Melbourne.

Everyone on each and every wine tour from Melbourne also has the opportunity to learn about wine and their very own palate with the help of my winemakers while our visit to Hanging Rock Nature Reserve offers a brief insight into this formidable volcanic rock formation which is home to Native Australian Wildlife such as Kangaroos, Koalas and many species of bird life.

This combination provides you with a very unique wine tour and no doubt I am sure that you will also enjoy your wines that have been delivered right to you door for many years to come and I will look forward to welcoming you back again for another first class wine tour.

Kind Regards,
Mike.

It's great to hear that you had a "GREAT EXPERIENCE" and rate Mike's Wine Tours as "THE BEST TOUR I HAVE BEEN ON IN A VERY LONG TIME!"

I strive to provide my guests with a very personal and unique experience that differs from the usual type of tour by offering a friendly environment for everyone and sharing our knowledge of wine, the wine regions of Victoria and matching this with outstanding wines and great food.

I sincerely appreciate that you have highlighted the efforts that I go to to ensure you have a great wine tour experience for choosing me and I look forward to seeing you again for another one of Melbourne's Best Wine Tours.

Best Wishes,
Mike.

Thank you for providing a very complimentary review of your recent wine tour to The Macedon Ranges Wine Region just north of Melbourne which also visits Holgate Brewhouse and Hanging Rock.

It is very pleasing for me to hear that you had a "FANTASTIC" time and that you appreciated my excellent customer service and the knowledge that I share with my guests about wine and Melbourne in general on each and every wine tour.

I also love ensuring that you are entertained throughout the day which is also complimented by meeting some very interesting wine makers who pride themselves on producing great wines for our enjoyment and pleasure along with their informative and guided wine tasting experiences.

May you enjoy your wine purchases from your tour and we look forward to hosting you again when you are next visiting Melbourne.

Kind Regards,
Mike.

It's great to hear that you have rated your Mike's Wine Tour as "THE BEST I HAVE BEEN ON".

Our small group tours certainly provide that personal touch and service and combining this with meeting the Actual Winemakers themselves for informative and descriptive wine tastings ensures you finish your wine tour with a greater appreciation of wine and your very own palate.

I very much look forward to hosting you again along with your friend sometime this year and to once again providing you with warmth, humour and a first class wine tour.

Until then, keep safe.

Best Wishes.
Mike.
