Have You Heard Y.E.T? – Apr 2024

We dance into Autumn with April’s ‘Have you Heard Y.E.T?!’

Welcome to the April edition of ‘Have you Heard Y.E.T?!’

This month’s newsletter features a recap of our March adventures, the launch of our new website and our feature destination is Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. We also have another special edition of our Your Exclusive Tours spotlight, this time with Carlie Rees.


What’s happening at Your Exclusive Tours?

We moved and grooved our way through the month of March here at Your Exclusive Tours. It was a complete opposite to February where we had several solo guests, and March was full of private tours with small groups; 3 to 8 guests.

We took a booking for a shore excursion to explore our Melbourne City Sights & Surrounds Private Experience. We hosted a lovely lead guest Mila, who advised us the tour group was a small group of her family and friends travelling together. The booking was 45 guests, which is one of largest bookings we have completed.

HYHY Newsletter Jan 2024 - YET opt

There was no one tour destination that stood out this month. All our guest where in awe that our beautiful city of Melbourne and regional destinations are every bit different. Highlights from our tours include:

  • Exploring our way around Queen Victoria Market sampling all meats, cheeses, chocolate, donuts, and finishing with a fresh seafood lunch.
  • wedding at Iron Bark Station. The infectious smiles and excitement from the bride & groom outweighed the 38-degree (100 F!) heat on Saturday 9/3.
  • A distillery experience and tasting at Jimmy Rum Distillery.
  • Wine Tasting + 3 Course Lunch at Steels Gate Winery.


YET gets a new website!

We’re thrilled to announce that early this month we launched our new and improved Your Exclusive Tours website. Featuring updated contents, new imagery, added stories and lots more – you can check out our new website at www.yourexclusivetours.com.au.

Review of the Month

This month’s feature review is from a Shore Excursion. The guest provided us with a brief to include some higlhights from our always popular Melbourne City Sights & Surrounds Private Experience, combined with Puffing Billy. We love creating customised itineraries for our guests to Create, Explore and Experience.  We had a great day with Mike and we thank him for leaving this review for us. 

Destination Experience of the Month – Mornington Peninsula

Just an hour’s drive from Melbourne is the incomparable Mornington Peninsula.
Renowned for its unique beauty, this strip of land is packed with a vast array of places to see and things to do.

It’s a popular day trip and holiday destination, guaranteed to inspire and create unforgettable moments for anyone who visits.

On one side of the Mornington Peninsula, you will find sparkling bayside beaches and soft sand that are perfect for making kids’ sandcastle dreams come true. On the other side, the coastline boasts rugged surf beaches that are favoured by some of the world’s most passionate and experienced surfers.

In between the foreshores and back beaches are plenty of stunning destinations, attractions, and experiences.

  • Enjoy mouth-watering local produce and gourmet fare paired with exquisite wines.
  • Meet some iconic Australian Wildlife.
  • Share a round of golf with friends
  • Take time to explore some of the magnificent walking tracks along the coastline or inland.

You can immerse yourself in the wonder that is the Mornington Peninsula. Hop on the Arthurs Seat Eagle Chair Lift and take in the breathtaking views of the Peninsula and beaches – you can even see across Port Phillip Bay to the Melbourne skyline.

For those after a bit – or in this case a lot – of R&R, the supremely relaxing Hot Springs or Thermal Springs are a must-do experience.

Once you’ve taken in the sights and had some time out, let’s treat yourself to one of the many award winning wineries, breweries, distilleries, and sumptuous local produce and food.

If an exciting holiday with the kids is more your style, there are many more things to explore:

  • Markets
  • Rock pools
  • Mini golf
  • Hedge mazes
  • Tree surfing
  • Sculpture parks
  • …and the iconic beaches.

We transport many families from one activity to the next and love watching them connect through fun activities and engaging experiences.

Wildlife-lovers are always in for a treat when they visit the Peninsula, with dolphins, berry and fruit picking, fantastic fishing spots, bike trails, unique nurseries, beautiful landscapes, and wildlife galore.

We help you explore all the most gorgeous places, and we know the Peninsula’s best kept secrets. With your own experienced and knowledgeable Chauffeur Guide at your service from pickup to drop-off, let Your Exclusive Tours get you to the Mornington Peninsula in style, as you immerse yourself in all the magic that is one of Victoria’s top tourist and lifestyle destinations
