Hear what some of our guests have to say about taking a private tour to the Mornington Peninsula:
I was drawn to book the tours by the great descriptions on the website and they were really spot on. James took us and our two children (ages 10 and 6) on two trips.
The first tour was down the Great Ocean Road, which could be boring for kids, but James had our two eating out of his hand very quickly!! The usual stunning sights were all covered, but it was the extras that made the difference – seeing wild kangaroos, koalas, kookaburras, a wander round the rainforest and some beach time. The other highlight was the comfy minivan so we could all snooze on the way back to Melbourne!
The second bespoke tour was down the Mornington Peninsula for wildlife and food. Unfortunately the dolphin sighting boat company cancelled at the last minute, but James had lots of alternatives suggestions and we had a superb day picking (and eating!) lots of strawberries, exploring the maze, fairy hunting, feeding kangaroos, cuddling koalas, going to a honey farm and the most amazing lunch.
During our Australia trip we’ve done a few other sightseeing coach trips (with 40+ on a bus) and these haven’t been a patch on those we went with James. The ability to plan the day around your wishes and being accompanied by James, who is so knowledgeable and friendly, is well worth paying that bit extra. My daughter says she’s coming back to Australia just to go on another trip with James!!

Took 3 full day tours with I heart Melbourne. Spent 2 days with James doing the Puffing Billy, Yarra valley and the City highlights and a day with Bruce at Mornington Peninsula. From the day of the inquiry until the drop off the whole experience was amazing. This is one way to enjoy private tours without burning a hole in your pocket. The places they recommended for lunch were great as well. We would definitely recommend I heart Melbourne if you are looking for a personalized experience and we are sure that you will be left with some great memories just like we were!

What a great day! James had the inside knowledge as to where the best wines
were (Tuck Ridge was the winner on this tour :)) He was a great host, photographer and safe driver. The tour was great value for money.

I Heart Melbourne Tours were brilliant right from start to finish. They were so accommodating despite us needing to change our booking regularly in the lead-up to our tour. On the day we met James who was so friendly and again so accommodating and he took us to some beautiful sites, stunning wineries and organised a fantastic lunch for us, and put up with us the whole way. Definitely would book again!

We were taken on a trip with James for our work Christmas outing and it was just great. James was friendly and put up with our shenanigans with a smile. We headed out on a nice walk in the National Park and then to a beautiful lunch spot before a couple of great wineries and a lookout near Arthur’s Seat. James was very accommodating and would recommend the trip to anyone looking to take the hassle out of a day out around the Mornington Peninsula.

Thanks for a fantastic day out along the Mornington Peninsula! My husband and I live in Melbourne and wanted to take our out-of-town guests on a tour of the Mornington Peninsula. Our guide James was fun, easy going and took us to a beautiful lunch location and fantastic wineries after a lovely morning at the hot springs. We found the tour to be great value for money and perfect for our needs as we wanted as much flexibility as possible. We’ll definitely be recommending you guys!

Tour guide James was professional and friendly throughout the tour, and obviously an experienced guide as he knew the area back-to-front (and therefore we were able to avoid the crowds, which was great!).
For us, it was all about relaxing, unwinding, indulging in great food and wine and having someone else do all the planning and the driving.
Our work team had a great day. We highly recommend I heart Melbourne Tours.
