“Large Group Team Day Winery Cycling Tour”
Allison and Libbie helped us put together a fantastic afternoon for our work team of 24 people. They were happy to tweak the Mornington Peninsula cycling tour to suit our itinerary and interests. The wineries they recommended were excellent, and we appreciated the extra effort that had to go into organising wineries that would open on a week day and accommodate a large group. Cycling along the Red Hill Rail Trail was beautiful and achievable for all levels of cycling experience, and it was great knowing the Vine Tours van was a short way away if we needed them for anything, and they checked in with us and guided us at each point along the way, meaning the organisers could also relax and enjoy the ride (and the wineries!). Thanks for a wonderful afternoon that the team will remember fondly for a long time to come!

Allison & Libbie provided a great day out for the 9 of us. Allison was so helpful in tailoring an itinerary which would suit our group of 8 males. The bike trails were challenging and fun for the whole team and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food & drink along the way. A great day out!

We had a fantastic day cycling with 7 friends and our lovely host Libbie and back up host Ali. The riding was not too hard, on the made roads, dirt roads and tracks. There was the option of increased adventure if you chose to tackle the muddy bike tracks a long side the road. We started at Arthurs seat enjoying a yummy morning tea at a local cafe and rode through to Red Hill, stopping for wine tasting and the strawberry farm along the way. We devoured a scrumptious pizza lunch at T’Gallant and ended our day on pretty dirt roads lined by gums trees, cruising into Shoreham. Out hosts were organised, caring and great fun!!! I highly recommend this experience.

“Great birthday present trip at Yarra Valley”
‘My partner surprised me with a Vine Tours voucher for my birthday and we spent a fantastic day riding and wining through the beautiful Yarra Valley. Elize was extremely helpful and professional and made the day faultless. We rode on the Warby trail from Mt. Evelyn to Launching Place with morning tea at The Carriage Cafe in Seville, lunch at Rochford, tastings at Rochford and Chandon and finished at The Chocolaterie in Yarra Glen. The scenery and surroundings were magnificent and added to occasion. Wine tastings were fun and educational, Highly recommended and look forward to doing similar trips in the future’.

“40th Birthday girly day out”
‘I went with 5 friends on the cycle wine tour in the Yarra Valley. Best day ever. A leisurely 18km ride along an old railway line. Meant to stop for coffee but it wasn’t open (a Monday) so we powered on and had a wine tasting plate at Chandon instead (way better I would think). Lunch at Rochford, then onto Punt Road and finished at the Yarra Valley Chocolate & Ice Cream place. Elize was awesome. Very flexible with our requirements. Nothing was a problem. Dave our co-rider was super cool. Would highly recommend’.
“Great surprise birthday!”
‘My wife organised a surprise birthday treat for me using Vine Tours. Myself and three friends were picked up, driven to Mt Evelyn where we started our 20km bike ride along the Warburton Trail. We were fitted with good quality bikes and had one of the guides chaperone us while our support vehicle moved to the next point. We stopped at the Carriage Cafe in Seville for a quick coffee.Following the bike ride, we were taken to Rochford Winery for lunch and wine tasting. The afternoon consisted of cider tasting at Punt Road, cheese tasting at Yarra Valley Dairy and, my personal favourite, ice cream and chocolate at Yarra Valley Chocolatiers. Elize and Richmond’s care was well beyond what was expected and they cared enough to follow up the next day. They were also great to talk to, sharing their own travel experiences. My wife went to extreme lengths so that I would not know the plan and I was left guessing for the entire day. As well one of my friends pulled out a few days prior but Vine Tours were very accommodating’.
