Before you book, have a look at our frequently asked questions:
I know where I want to go, can I just book a driver for the day?
Our private casual tour would suit you, ensure to have an outline of where you wish to visit and book your own lunch to ensure you don't miss out. Allow an hour at each winery for travel time and tastings. Usually 6 places is plenty in 7 hours! Feel free to ask us for any advice on where to go :-)
Do you pick up from Melbourne?
We occasionally pick groups up from Melbourne, preferably south of the city as it adds an extra 4 hours of travelling time for our drivers who are based on the Peninsula, it's approx $300 extra return.
We do pick you up as far as Frankston station at no extra cost :-)
Do you pick up from our accommodation?
Yes, anywhere on the Peninsula we will pick you up and return you where you wish to go.
How many places do we visit?
We visit 4 - 6 places depending on how many people in your group. Groups of two on a private tour can visit up to 6 places, 2 - 6ppl 5 wineries and 6 plus people visit up to 4 places.
What wineries do we visit?
We visit a variety (large and small) depending on your preference and also winery operating hours, we ask you what your intentions are for the day. Whether you'd like a fun social day out or you'd like to try the best Pinot on the Peninsula, maybe you'd prefer local produce over wine. We're flexible for the private tours. For the public tours, have a look at our list of best wineries as we usually visit most of these places, depending on the day.
What time is pick up?
It depends where you're staying, we aim to arrive at the first winery at 11am when they open.
Usually between 10:30-10:45am is pick up. Returning you approx 5:30pm.
For the packaged tour can we choose where we want to go?
You can choose where you wish to go, we like to suggest the first two wineries, which we know you'll love! Then in the afternoon you can choose another winery, brewery, cider, cheese factory or gin distillery. For lunch we usually go to Pier 10, The green olive or Blue range estate. Depending on winery operating hours.
How many people can you take?
We have a 6, 7 and 11 seater van available and can hire up to a 24 seater on request.
What vehicles do you drive?
We love trusty Toyota! We have two fancy imports from Japan, with 2 x sunroofs! One van has leather seats and electric doors (best for couples) and the other van the seats face each other, ideal for a social day with 7 or less friends! Plus we have our 11 seater mini bus. Have a look at our intagram photos of how we can personalise your van!
Can we drink on the bus?
We visit plenty of places and they are all very generous with their tastings, wineries are very close to each other and most of all we really want you to have a great day and remember every moment. So unfortunately there is no drinking on the bus, please respect our drivers and all venue staff. We want to continue our awesome relationships with the venue staff. Thanks :-)
Do you cater to dietary requirements?
Yes for sure! The places we visit for lunch are very accommodating for all dietary requirements, just let us know when you book so we can cater to your needs.
