What a pleasant tour!! It was my first trip to the wineries. Sean, our tour guide, who is also the founder of dancing kangaroo, brought us to the 3 wineries, lunch, beer/cider and chocolate factory. I’ve learnt a lot through his explanation. He received us with much joy and lead us with a positive attitude. I would greatly recommend dancing kangaroo to anyone who is looking for a winery tour in Melbourne. Thank you Sean. Great trip :)

Wow, such a fun trip! Sean, the owner of Dancing Kangaroos, was warm, funny, knowledgeable and conscientious. And a good driver. The wineries we visited were all unique - we had wine from a small family-owned operation, a mid-sized one where we had a delicious sit-down lunch, and a well-established larger winery. Beer tasting afterwards too. This tour surpassed my expectations.
