Paul was a fantastic host for our recent trip to the Mornington Peninsula. He was warm, enthusiastic, informative and friendly, and took us to some fantastic wineries.

From Irene on Facebook, posted January 2021
“Paul was very helpful in setting up and booking during Covid lockdown when everything was unknown. Fortunately, Victoria rallied and we were able to get away to the Peninsula for the 2 weekend in December and Paul drove my wife and I around some of the hidden gems in the region for tasting and lunch (plus a few purchases) Paul had a good knowledge of the area and loved to chat about all things wine and travel. Great service and very friendly.”

“From Kris on Trip Advisor, posted December, 2020

 

“Paul is one of the kindest souls I have ever met. He went above and beyond for us. We booked our trip with pretty late notice only being his second tour after opening back up due to coronavirus.

If you are staying at the Mornington Peninsula you must book a tour with Paul, I promise you won’t regret it!”

“Fantastic cider tour. I contacted Paul via email to book a tour on the Mornington Peninsula for my husband and I. I explained to him that we were more interested in sampling the ciders rather than wine. He went above and beyond to ensure our tour was tailored to our preferences. Paul is a wonderful tour guide and full of knowledge he is willing to share! From the moment he pulls up in his van to pick you up, it feels like a road trip with an old friend! I highly recommend booking tours with Amour of the Grape Tours. I promise you will not regret it!.”
