What people are saying about Mornington Peninsula

Emily, our guide was a whole bunch of fun, friendly, informative, very relaxed especially to us asian. The whole trip was good, hot spring was fantastic except it cud have been a slight longer. Sad to swap the gondola right with chocolate making as I’m allergic to chocolate. Carry your own towel and bathrobe and bag to carry around ur phone to take pics during hotspring as its quite pricey to rent some, bring ur own snacks!

Best of Mornington

We did the option without the hot springs. This gave us time in the towns on the Peninsula such as Sorrento, Portsea and we went to London Bridge. We felt like we had seen quite a lot and had a lot of time at these places.

Small group with a very pleasant guide in Cloe. Saw many sights and had time for a bit of an explore. A full-on day but really enjoyable- as were the muffins in Sorrento!

resolutely brilliant. cloe was a bubbly guide. nothing too much trouble for her.

we had a fantastic time - our tour guide Joel was great!
