    What a beautiful day it was with our wonderful tour guide Craig! Not only is he knowledgeable he is hilarious!! From goats at our Main Ridge Dairy cheese tasting , to freeze dried fruits at the Mock orchard and many varieties of wine at T’Gallant and Red Hill Estate wineries. Let’s not forget the incredible chai tea chocolate at MP Chocolates in Flinders and the humongous fresh strawberries at Sunnyridge Strawberry Farm . I would highly recommend this tour and Craig as the guide

    Myself and six friends joined Rob L on the tour recently and had such a jam packed day full of delicious food, cheese, wines and so much more. Rob was an absolute gem, he was so knowledgeable, so kind and considerate, and the most hospitable guide I have ever encountered. The stops were so well organised and planned out. The food tastings were really great (my highlight was the goat diary!) and the locations were very hospitable and always ready for our arrival. It was a great way to see some of the highlights of the Mornington area without any stress or planning required. I would recommend this as a day trip from the city for anyone who likes to drink wine, eat food and take in beautiful natural scenery.
