My spouse is an accredited wine enthusiast and we have taken close to 2 dozen of these tours world wide. Our guide on this tour was one of the most knowledgeable and very patient asking the many, many questions everyone asked. In the 2 instances I saw where he was uncertain, he texted a mate to verify his answer.His upbeat attitude and knowledgeable enthusiasm made what could have been a very long day feel fun and comfortable the whole time.
This daytrip was a definite highlight. We had a great commentary on the way down to Mornington Peninsula and a general tour around Mornington, driving through some of the quaint little towns and stopping at SCHNAPPER POINT, which was absolutely beautiful. We saw the Bathing boxes on the beach.
We chose the option to visit the HOT SPRINGS. Our stay was for about 2.5 hours and we enjoyed every minute. There are so many hot springs to visit and a sauna if time permits. Trying to experience all of them in the time was a challenge but so much fun and luxurious to boot!!!
We then visited SUNNY RIDGE STRAWBERRY FARM. Picking our own strawberries was heaps of fun and gettint to eat them, once washed, was areal treat. They were delicious. We also sampled and purchased some of the wine there. We also sampled and purchased some relishes. I could have spent a lot more time there. They had a lovely cafe and this was the best shop we visited,while in Melbourne,
for local qauint and tasty gifts.
We also visited ARTHURS SEAT which gave us panoramic views over the bay.
This wet our appetite for the area and next time we visit Melbourne we will try and stay longer in the Mornington area. FABULOUS TOUR.
Lots of stops, never too long on the bus. Great tastings at 3 wineries, a cider brewery, a local cheese maker, a strawberry farm and lunch at a chocolate shop. Also some great photo ops at lookouts and beaches.
This tour was amazing!
What a yummy day! Great tour from pickup to drop off. Lots of great wine tastings as well as a goat farm for great cheeses, a strawberry farm and lunch and sampling at a chocolaterie!
Definitely do this. Cafe bus tours, a partner of wildlife tours in Melbourne were excellent and hassle free. Loved all the food tasting. Steve, our tour guide, was a gem. Our group was amazing and got along really well together. Fun food filled Sunday with new friends. What and #39;s not to love?!?!
A great day with a wonderful guide. The tastings were varied and generous. There was enough time for breaks without being too much. Good sightseeing and a wonderful overview of the peninsula. Recommended

Well worth taking a day out of your holiday to do this trip. A great variety of venues to experience, with excellent tasting options of cheese, wine, cider, chocolate and strawberries. Beautiful countryside, great driver - thanks Rob, lovely hosts at all venues. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and have already shared and recommended this trip with family and friends. Great value for money.
Tour Guide Simon Quail was fantastic, he went above and beyond. This is much more than your run of the mill wine tour and showcases the Mornington Peninsula with its great produce ranging from Goat Cheeses, Pinot Noir, Apple Cider This was added to the tour and wasn't even advertised, score, lunch at a chocolate factory, follow by scrumptious strawberries and the olive farm/winery.
Would highly recommend not only for the taste of the region but the spectacular scenery.
We were really happy with this tour and our guide Rob was great and very helpful and informative. Would definitely recommend the Hot Springs option for this tour, it was amazing! The lunch was delicious, with lots to choose from. We really enjoyed the whole tour!!!!!
Doing what: Mornington Peninsula Day Trip from Melbourne
I really had a great time with this tour! Our tour guide Vicky was always on time and very approachable. We went to four cellar doors, each with unique wines to offer. It was also interesting to taste locally made goat cheese and chocolates. I would recommend this tour and even accompany my friends next time!
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Rob was a great guide, very knowledgable and very approachable. The tour was interesting with variety of the different cheese/wine/chocolate and strawberry places.
Great times were had
Was a great day.Lots of tasting in all places.Great coach driver as well.
Great host and excellent arrangements
Thoroughly enjoyed the full day tour. Excellent guide and good programme. Beautiful countryside and plenty of wine to sample. Cozy group of 17. The lovely weather on the day we took the tour helped too.
Fantastic day out in the beautiful countryside. Simon our guide was brilliant even makes coffee on the bus. The winery tours were really good, beautiful chocolate and strawberries followed by a stop at the bathing boxes for a photo shoot. Highly recommend Simon and his team for any of their tours.
I feel like this is one of the most value for money tours I have been on in a very long time! It is busy, but doesn't feel rushed, you have plenty of food and wine tastings and you don't feel like you have missed out on anything. Our driver, Simon was so knowledgeable and friendly, he made us coffees in the 'Cafe Bus' which was a great novelty too. Lunch was absolutely delicious and better than any lunch I have had on a group tour before, I highly recommend it.
Great value, great lunch Green Olive and Strawberry Farm our favourite, would definitely recommend this tour to anyone
Our driver Pete was absolutely the best - the tour is totally worth it - tastings in 3 wineries with plenty of wines cheese tasting and awesome lunch and chocolate tasting. We loved it! My only complaint was that the tour started at 8 in the morning. We did not get to the drinking part by 10:15 or so but still I think it is a tad too early. I think the wine tastings can fit later in the day.
great day out. thank you vicki
