This tour is by far one of the best tours I have ever done! If you are visiting Melbourne for the first time and want to get out of the city for the day, I would highly recommend you do this.
Our tour guide/bus driver was very informative and really let us take in and enjoy each stop. Mornington was absolutely beautiful and a very peaceful place.
The strawberry picking was the fun part for me and they tasted delicious!

Very enjoyable and scenic day trip. A number of short stops for photo opportunities and longer stops at Arthur's Pass, Strawberry Farm, Gardens and Mornington Pier. The devonshire tea at Arthur's Pass was most enjoyable and sitting there looking across the bay was very relaxing. At the Strawberry Farm we were each given a large punnet to pick our strawberries. Even though the wather in the weeks leading up to our visit had not been the ideal climate for strawberry growing the ones that we picked and consumed over the following couple of days were the sweetest that I have ever tasted. Gardens were good especially impressed by the Rose Garden. Stop at lookout to see across to the entrance of Bass Strait was worthwhile. Driver was very knowledgeable and helpful.

This was a great trip led by driver/knowledgeable guide Adrian. We were part of a small group attending that day and Adrian was flexible in allowing us to stay longer at popular stops if we wished. A highlight was the lunch at a welcoming little cafe in Hastings that featured huge sandwiches on fresh bread and excellent fillings. The cider brewery and strawberry farm were also popular.The tour would suit first time visitors to the Peninsula, as we covered a lot of ground over the ten hour day.

We had a wonderful time. Really enjoyed the tour and 10/10 for our driver
Gordon. We were taken to some beautiful locations, only disappointment was that the advertised
maze and lavender farm were no longer part of the tour.

The tour guidedriver was well organised and new a lot about the Mornington Penninsula. Lovely to have spent time and have lunch at the Lavender farm and we enjoyed morning tea provided at Arthurs seat. Plenty of wine to sample at the wineries.

Bus was not convenient; it was minibus & too tight sitting.
