What people are saying about Peninsula Hot Springs

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.

Was a wonderful tour together with James! Really enjoyed the day and got a really good impression of Mornington Peninsula. Especially Bushrangers Bay was breathtaking!!!
