Just go for it

This tour is such enjoyable as we taste lots of things: Cheese, wine, cider, chocolate, strawberries
That was fantastic! And the road is beautiful, we are going by the sea sometimes and it makes us discover the Victoria State deeper.
Don't hesitate to book 😉

Fun day on the Mornington Peninsula

A really great day had by all. Dwayne was our top notch tour guide with a fantastic sense of humour and knowledge of the region. We hit a range of places that specialised in fresh produce such as goat's cheese, local grown wines, apple ciders, chocolates and strawberries. It was a lovely scenic drive throughout the day and it was awesome seeing a different side of Victoria. Highly recommend this tour if wanting to do something a bit different and see more of Victoria instead of staying in the city and for the stunning local produce.

A Day on the Mornington Peninsula

This is an amazing day out. Craig was an excellent guide/driver and was very knowledgeable of the area and the wineries. We (party of 3) thoroughly enjoyed the wineries we visited, also the ciders, strawberries, cheese, and chocolates and enjoyed our relaxing break in Flinders. Also enjoyed the sing-a-long on the way back!! Thoroughly recommend this tour.

Beautiful day tour in the Mornington Peninsula

The Mornington Peninsula Wine, Cheese & Chocolate tour is a must do for all the wine & food lovers. We tried many different wines and the food was simply amazing! Vicky, our guide was very experienced and friendly. We traveled with a small group (18 people) and it was such a great mix of people (young, old, couples, friends, solo travelers, locals, internationals). I highly recommend going with Wildlife tours as the tours are really well organised and the quality of the tours is great.

Mornington Peninsula Cheese, Chocolate & Wine Tasting

We booked this day trip through Wildlife Tours. Our tour guide John picked us up at our hotel for our nice small tour group of 14. After picking everyone up we headed out to our first stop "Arthur`s Seat" which is a park up on a mountain. There we were all treated to coffee, tea or hot chocolate that John prepared right on the van. While we were able to view and take pictures. Then off to taste some locally produced cheese at Main Ridge Dairy. Followed by our wine tasting's. Our favorate vineyard on the tour was Green Olive. They have an outstanding Red Shriaz.and gave a great tasting. We had lunch at the Mornington Peninsula Chocolates. They first gave us samples of 3 different chocolates. Then we had lunch which was outstanding. Also they sell homemade ice cream along with the chocolates. We had both. After lunch we went to a general store to sample cheese and crackers and wine. Followed by our nice relaxing ride back to Melbourne.John did an excellent job our guide with great stories and suggestions.

Mornington Peninsula day tour

Having just completed a tour of the Mornington Peninsula with Wildlife Tours yesterday l highly recommend it to anyone. It was a fantastic day, very informative and most enjoyable. Our tour coach Leon was incredible and joined in the fun we had, we visited the best wineries, enjoyed the wine tasting, the delightful lunch, the chocolate tasting was enjoyable to say the least. The scenery all along the way was truly wonderful and the stories and the history that Leon told usabout was very informative. In general we had a great day and would highly recommend it to anyone. I know when next l am in Melbourne l will repeat the tour, it was that good

Great and Interesting day tour to the Mornington Peninsula

We booked the day tour to the Mornington Peninsula when we were in Melbourne recently (though it was not our first time visiting there or to Melbourne but yes for my mum).

We were picked up at the hotel by our guide, David W, who was extremely friendly, jovial and knowledgeable. Throughout the entire tour, he was attentive to details and attended to all the tour mates with his best and whenever we dropped by or passed by a location, he would gave us a nice summary or introduction of it.

There were only 10 tour mates for the day and we were traveling in a mini coach and that allowed maximum interactions between all of us and with David. We could also move freely on the coach!

As far as the itinerary was concerned, it was quite well structured and organized and most importantly, within the time allowance at each location (as all the tour mates were very cooperative and considerate). We visited goat farms, wineries, strawberry farm, jetty and included a lunch at Flinders that was very good. I would not go into the details here for each of the places we have visited as you can read my reviews posted earlier.

The only feedback for improvement was that there were several wineries included in the tour which to some of us who are not really drinkers, seemed too much (and of course time spent there seemed longer since it was supposed to be wine tasting). Also good to include other kinds of activities like walking tour in Flinders through the streets or even included visit to Sorrento.

Overall, we did enjoy the tour and should we visit Melbourne again, will surely book the other tours with the company!

Mornington Peninsula Wine Tour

Me and a friend went on the Mornington Peninsula winery tour yesterday, and we would definitely recommend this tour to absolutely everyone! It is only a short drive away from Melbourne and includes two different wineries as well as a cider house. You literally get fed until you are about to burst with the best cheese and chocolate I have ever tasted! The lunch is of such a high quality, not at all like your usual sandwiches and snacks!

The peninsula was absolutely beautiful and it was so lovely to get out of the city for a day and experience all of the incredible beaches.

The best part of the tour was probably the amazing tour guide, Rob L! He knew absolutely everything that there was to know, and stopped off at tons of breathtaking view points on the way. Such a lovely guy and such a wonderful tour. I would recommend this to everyone of all ages as me and my friend are in our early twenties but there was also people of all ages on the tour.

Overall a really great price for all that was included 🙂
