A wonderful way to spend the day with friends. Pete planned our day and catered to our needs. From the moment he arrived to pick us up we knew that our day was going to be fantastic. Everything was well planned. A relaxing and enjoyable way to spend our weekend at local wineries that were friendly. Highly recommend. Thanks Pete.

We could not have been happier with our experience with Manna Gum Tours this weekend! Peter made sure we had the perfect day and was so knowledgeable about the wineries of the Peninsula region. He created the perfect balance between suggesting and arranging great wineries for us to visit and also allowing us to pick and choose some options of our own. Peter put us at ease instantly with his friendly and approachable nature and we had great conversations and plenty of laughs on the bus throughout the day. I can’t recommend Manna Gum Tours highly enough and a huge thank you to Peter for making this such a great day out for us!

We had booked with Manna Gum tours last minute with a few days before my birthday weekend down at Mornington peninsula. We were lucky enough to have Peter available that day as our designated driver. Upon arrival Peter was very friendly and introduced himself to the group. We had our own itinerary planned for the day (he also does tours), however with the knowledge that Peter had with the area we added a few more wineries that he had recommended. After a few wines later in the day Peter welcomed the fact that we had turned his van into a party bus. Peter never rushed us during the day and went with the flow. He loves a good chat that we got him to join us for some coffee and dessert as we ended the day. It was a great day out and would definitely book again.

Two friends and myself enjoyed an amazing day with Mannagum Tours! Pete was great and very accommodating! (never felt pressed for time at any winery and really enjoyed every part of the way!) Loved that we visited the more boutique wineries, which I believe gave us a real feel for the beautiful Mornington region. Really couldn’t have asked for much more from the day! Thanks Pete!

We had a lovely day with Mannagum Tours. Peter our driver organised a day full of treats by taking us to some great wineries, cheese tasting and also a cider cellar. Lunch was included and the restaurant was a great choice by Peter. The food was delicious and catered well for the dietary needs of our group. Next time I will remember to tell Peter about our groups dietary requirements when booking. We had a wonderful day as we could relax and enjoying the beautiful views around Mornington as we were not driving. We would highly recommend Mannagum Tours, Peter is a wonderful chauffeur.

Had a really lovely day, took us to some fantastic wineries. Would highly recommend this tour. Never felt rushed was flexible with changing up wineries to suit us and really knowledgeable about the area. Thanks for a great day!!

I would happily (and enthusiastically) recommend this tour for couples or groups. It was a great day out. Peter was a fantastic guide and friendly pleasant company throughout the day. He was flexible and tailored the tour to what we were interested in seeing and doing. This was organised as a Christmas gift for my partner and I and we couldn’t have had a better day. We even visited a winery where we spotted a koala in a tree. Plus, the wineries we visited were stunning and the lunch was lovely. Just fantastic! Would book with Manna Gum Tours again.

My parents and I enjoyed a fantastic day out on the Mornington Peninsula winery tour. Peter was a fantastic and very down to earth driver and guide – he even drove in to Melbourne CBD to pick us up from the hotel even though he lives on the Peninsula.
Over 5 hours we visited about 6 wineries, with most being small boutique wineries which were much better than the big commercial cellar doors. We even met the winemaker (Quealy) who first brought Pinot Grigio to Australia. We also stopped for a nice lunch overlooking a vineyard which made for a pleasant break from the wine tasting.

I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who loves wine or just wants a nice day out with friends and family.

Peter took us around on an awesome day tour of the Mornington peninsula region. We spent most of our time at wineries but it was only the two of us on the tour so we had a lot of flexibility as to where we went. Peter took us to some great wineries (highly recommend quealys!), and we also squeezed in the hot springs, though you probably need a bit more time there. We also had a fabulous lunch at merricks creek. Peter was a great tour guide, very easy going and chatty. Great value and a fantastic way to see the area quickly!

Six girlfriends and I had the pleasure of being shown around the Morning Peninsula last Saturday by Pete from Manna Gum Tours. Pete was lovely and very attentive. We all had a fantastic day. We visited 7 wineries (!) in total, and Pete was flexible in terms of adjusting his original itinerary to our requests, and also considerate of how long we wanted to stay at each cellar door etc.

I would highly recommend Manna Gum Tours for any group interested in checking out the amazing wines from this region. Pete provides an experience that feels very personalised.

We had a great day out at the wineries Peter had chosen for us – it was nice to see a range of different kinds of cellar doors. He was very friendly and we enjoyed getting to know him over the day. We thought the price was very reasonable as it included a delicious lunch and tastings at all the cellar doors. Would highly recommend this tour to others! Thanks for a fantastic day 🙂

Peter from Manna Gum Tours treated us 5 girls to one amazing tour of the Mornington Peninsula. From my initial email, followed by phone calls to meeting Peter he was a true professional. We wanted to do more of an overview of the Mornington Peninsula and not just focus on the wineries. Peter accommodated my request and we spent a great day at The Bathing Boxes, Red Hill Cheese, Cape Schank Boardwalk, Arthurs Seat, Seawind Gardens an amazing lunch at Morning Sun Vineyard (best wood oven pizzas) and ended our day with a with a wine tasting at 10 Minutes By Tractor. We certainly had a great overview, and found Peter to have great knowledge of the area, hence we were able to see so much. Manna Gum Tours thank you – we had a great day and thank you so much for ensuring the WEATHER was perfect too.

We arranged a family day out as a Mother’s Day gift and it was spectacular! Our winery tour of Mornington Peninsula was absolutely outstanding with Peter. He took us to a fabulous variety of small and larger wineries, as well as taking us to some we requested. The lunch he arranged was scrumptious and his service was excellent. The day was above and beyond what we could have expected and definitely great value for money. If you are looking for a relaxing day hosted by a friendly, knowledgeable and genuinely wonderful person, Mannagum is the way to go! Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks so much Peter for an awesome day 🙂

Peter collected us from our front door and dropped us home again which was so convenient. He was very friendly and we had a fun day with him. He was knowledgable about the wineries and the area and catered the day to our needs – he was more than happy to include a brewery, a distillery and a cheese factory as well as multiple wineries in our tour. He had a good rapport with the owners of the wineries so we felt well looked after. The price was also very reasonable – it was great value. Peter is also very versatile in his abilities as he does other scenic tours of the Mornington Peninsula. We wouldn’t hesitate to book another tour with Peter and recommend him to our friends and family. Well worth it!!

Peter picked the two of us up from our accommodation in the Mornington Peninsula and was able to show us the best of what it has to offer. Like a personal chaperone he ensured we were looked after by the venue staff and was able to offer his own entertaining stories.
We had sent through a list of wineries that we wanted to check out and using this along with some great recommendations from Peter we were able to visit numerous wineries, a cheese tasting, brewery and a lookout with panoramic views of the area.
Peter has been in the area for decades and has a great relationship with some of the vendors. He even made a stop at the supermarket on the way home so we could pick up some supplies for dinner!
Highly recommended, you won’t regret choosing Manna Gum Tours!

Peter took our group of 9 out for a wonderful day on the peninsula. From the first e-mail contact to the tour itself, everything was managed in a professional and friendly-manner by Peter. I was attracted to Manna Gum Tours not only by the great value but also the flexibility provided by Peter. He provided excellent suggestions but also allowed us to customise the tour to suit our interests, and instead of saying “we will visit 4/5 wineries” like most other tours, Peter allowed us to visit a variety of places and we were only limited by how long we wanted to stay at each. At a very cruisey place we saw 4 wineries, a cidery, a cheesery and a distillery (with a sneaky visit to the cellar door at the same venue as the distillery) plus a quick visit to the lookout at Arthurs Seat (a real highlight for guests from both Melbourne and Sydney). Peter was extremely prompt at all times and is a kind tour guide. He allows you to enjoy your day at your own pace and is happy to have a chat, explain the area and region. He went out of his way to make our day fantastic and we would recommend Manna Gum Tours whole-heartedly.

“Apologies for the delayed THANK YOU for your time and fantastic service during our guided tour to the Mornington Peninsula over the Australia Day Weekend. Your extensive knowledge of the area has opened our eyes to the many beautiful and unexplored wineries, boutique cheese producer and cherry farm. It was a very enjoyable day spent leisurely taking in the scenic landscape and tasting the bounty of such a great region. Your choice for lunch at the Box Stallion was spot on. We enjoyed the outdoor dining experience overlooking the vast and lusciously green vineyard. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to wine and dine. The tour was made all the more special since it was especially booked for just Erik and I. It made our weekend that little more special and romantic. Your flexibility and customized guided tour was very much appreciated. We hope we have not been too picky or demanding in our requests to visit the various places. Thank you once again and hope all goes well for you.”
