    We had an amazing day out! Thanks to our guide Scottie for being informative, funny and most of all, putting up with a van full of very ‘happy’ people. I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a fun day out of Melbourne enjoying a taste of what the Mornington Peninsula has to offer: beer, gin, cider, food and fun!

    This Mornington Tour is an unreal option for a Bucks Party. Our private tour was fantastic. All of the blokes who came along didn't have a bad word to say about it and to top it off, the tour guide was a legend. The ‘buck’ was not disappointed. I would highly recommend this tour to people who want to have fun, drink beer, and enjoy a great day out.

    We had a great day. Paul was a wonderful tour guide, and extremely knowledgeable about brewing. We did the Mornington Peninsula tour, visiting three breweries and a cidery. A great lunch was had at Hicks Brewery and the beers were great. I can highly recommend this tour.
