An outstanding tour, can’t recommend it enough. From the very beginning Paul made everyone on the bus feel very welcome. It was well organised, with a good choice of wineries in a picturesque location. As a non wine drinker (the trip was a present) Paul was more than willing to talk me through wines he thought would be suitable for me.
Excellent day out. Would go again if back in Melbourne.
During November we holidayed in Melbourne, Australia and went on the Vinetrekker Mornington Peninsula Wine & Food Day Tour. It was probably the best day tour of any sort my husband & I have ever done, it was excellent. Our tour guide, Joseph, was extremely pleasant & informative and definitely knew his stuff! The day was filled with everything that’s advertised in the brochure, so you really get your money’s worth! Our transport was a very comfortable luxury mini-coach and because it was a small group (us plus 3 lovely young mums from New Zealand on a mini-break) it was a really friendly, happy day and I would thoroughly recommend it. Back in a cold, rainy UK now but still have happy memories of that day!
This was my parent’s first time wine tasting, and they thoroughly enjoyed it all, the wine, the information provided, the cheese and the chocolates. The wineries we visited were excellent and we all ended up buying a substantial amount of wine, cheese and chocolate. Steve, our guide, was fantastic and very informative throughout the day. It was great to learn so much whilst enjoying a relaxing tour of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.
I would most definitely recommend this tour to anyone thinking about it. The tour and Steve’s knowledge and enthusiasm will not disappoint you thats for sure. Keep up the good work Vinetrekker, thank you very much.
Steve was very knowledgeable about all of the areas we traveled through the peninsula. He was very enthusiastic about all aspects of the day. The wineries we visited were varied in style which kept the day interesting. The lunch we had was of a very good quality in nice rural surroundings. The day’s travel was very comfortable in a modern, spotlessly clean Vehicle.
I would definitely recommend this tour company.
Paul is such a nice and thoughtful person. The tour was very well designed and the wineries were just perfect. Highly recommend!!!
This is a daytour with several very good wine tastings of the prominent wines of the region, eg chardonneys, pinot gris and pinot noir. Lunch included with good choices of main dishes and chocolate and cheese tasting after lunch. A relatively small group and good guide made the day a very good experience.
I cannot recommend this enough. Our guide, Steven, was knowledgeable friendly and helpful. Both food and wine were exceptional. A real eye opener to Australian wine. I would gladly recommend this to anyone. Top draw !!
I am so glad we booked this tour!
From the minute Stephen collected us promptly, in the morning, he was professional, interesting and helpful, noting interesting historical points through the city and giving us some information about the Yarra Valley. Our small group of six were all made to feel welcome and chatted all the way to the valley.
Two of our group went to the sanctuary, whilst the rest of us had a full day wine tasting. Stephen’s relationship with the various vineyards and wine tasters made us feel like we were in good hands and each vineyard was interesting and the wine tasting thoroughly enjoyable.
Food was excellent – the antipasti at Chandon was much needed after a morning wine tasting, and lunch at Yering Station was delicious.
I would highly recommend the tasting to everyone – the small group, the quality guide and the excellent service makes this trip well worth it.
Paul was so easy to work with. He communicated quickly via email to schedule and answered all my questions. His van is comfortable and clean. Paul was a great tour guide and well liked by my group. We hired him for the next day and was quick on his feet with ideas when your scheduled activity was cancelled by the weather. Thanks again for helping us to love Melbourne.
It was a wonderful tour. Good selection of wineries from big to small, Steven was a wonderful guide, lunch was great with an amazing view, and we felt special at every winery we visited. In addition to sampling many wines our tastings at two of the wineries were accompanied by charcuterie or paired cheeses. Best wine tour we have ever taken, and we have done a fair number now on four continents.
