Scenery was breathtaking, food and wine wonderful and tour guide highly entertaining. Enjoyed every moment of this day trip!
Extremely enjoyable tour made all the better by our guide Tim. He was a great raconteur, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The local produce that we sampled through the day was tasty, fresh, varied and great quality. Highly recommend this tour.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day out with Driver/Guide Adrian. There was a variety of interesting visits and activities, in a very relaxed schedule. All of the 'tastings' and lunch were delicious. Highly recommended!
Unfortunately our trip was cancelled due to lack of numbers but the very friendly person offered the Yarra Valley tour which was a highlight of our stay in Melbourne. Our guide Grant was entertaining and knowledgeable and the group were good fun. The produce at Gateway was delicious, Cider, wine, chocolate all delicious, lunch at Rochford Estate lovely. Sun was shining a lovely day out in the country
We had a great day. Even though I came for the wine, tasting the amazing Cider was very delicious! Everything about this trip is good, I can only recommend it!
The tour was amazing. Our tour guide Simon Q was fantastic. There waz never a dull moment and it was simply a fun and food filled trip! Highly recommended!
My husband and I took this tour on New Year's Eve and it was a wonderful way to spend the day. The best part of our trip was our guide, Leon, who was not only knowledgable and interesting, but unbelievably kind as well.
We were picked up near our apartment and drove about an hour to our first stop at a goat farm for a cheese tasting. You could also order coffee and cheese to take home here there is a cooler in the van to keep it in throughout the day. It was a bit cool when we started out but the sun came out and warmed us considerably by the end of the day. I would recommend bringing both a light jacket and sunglasses/sunscreen.
From there, we visited 3 wineries, a chocolate shop where we had a delicious lunch, a cider room for a tasting, and a strawberry farm. The van is a smooth and comfortable ride and the stay at each location was a good amount of time, probably between 30 minutes and an hour each.
Leon was kind enough to drop us back in town in spite of the impending New Year's Eve traffic. Once back, we realized we had mistakenly grabbed his bottle of wine instead of our own. As we were leaving town the next day and staying at an apartment instead of a hotel, the trade off was going to be a bit tricky. Leon went above and beyond by meeting us at the restaurant we were having dinner at by bike due to road closures! with our bottle and insisting we keep his to enjoy as well.
The entire day was wonderful, but it is really Leon's kindness that stuck in our memories. Thank you, Leon!!

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
