Emily, our guide was a whole bunch of fun, friendly, informative, very relaxed especially to us asian. The whole trip was good, hot spring was fantastic except it cud have been a slight longer. Sad to swap the gondola right with chocolate making as I’m allergic to chocolate. Carry your own towel and bathrobe and bag to carry around ur phone to take pics during hotspring as its quite pricey to rent some, bring ur own snacks!

Kyle was an excellent tour guide and driver. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. Everywhere he took us was great ... the wineries, brewery, ferry and gondola ride. Lunch and afternoon tea were delicious too. My friends and I had lots of fun and shared laughs with our fellow passengers. Would thoroughly recommend this tour to others.

Norm was an excellent host, taking us to a variety of good wineries. We found that some of the wineries would even freight our purchases home free of charge. Lunch at the Old Apple Shed was an absolute feast. Then finally we had a tour around the sights of the Mornington Peninsula. A great day!

Picked up and dropped off at our hotel and our driver was fantastic. Visited some great and boutique wineries so had a great range of wines. Lunch was delicious and was altogether a really fun day.

resolutely brilliant. cloe was a bubbly guide. nothing too much trouble for her.
