5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2017

The day trip was well arranged and I got to visit the fabulous chocolate, strawberries and wine and cheese places .... the best part of course was the olive farm. The visits were well paced and it has been a very relaxing and enjoyable day for those who want to just tour around and have some nice munchies, but not to sit in the coach for too long between stops.

3 star rating: Worth doing April 2017

I enjoyed this tour as it was jam packed with lots of great places to enjoy food and wine. Simon was a good tour guide and did his best to keep us on a schedule that had at least one too many stops. I was not happy with the discrepancies between how this tour was advertised on the Viator web site and what was actually included in the tour. First it was advertised that there were hotel pick ups, and it had a very detailed list of times and hotels. This did not happen. I was informed in advance that I would need to travel about a mile from my hotel to catch the bus. It turns out it was pouring rain that morning in Melbourne and the pick up site had NO covered area to wait. in front of St Paul's Cathedral I was soaked before I even started this excursion. The description on the website included a stop/entrance at Enchanted Adventure Garden, but instead we did 2 wine tastings and a cider tasting. I had a good time seeing the Mornington Peninsula, but I felt rushed and did not like the change in itinerary from what was posted.
