Overall rating

based on 2 reviews

The selections of events and activities were easy going and excellent.

It was an easy going, no rush tour. The host/hostess of the places we visited were all every warm and professional. We enjoyed very much of the sunshine and beautiful country scenery of the Mornington peninsula. Our tour guide was excellent, though the tour bus was a bit old.

Nice way to spend a day!

Enjoyed the tour but was a little too long and disjointed. Maybe condensed into 6 hours would be better and a different place to have lunch.

In my opinion a little more than an ocean stop x colored houses weather permitting
