Quality, Food, Wine, and History are 4 words that describe our tours which incorporate the 5 food and wine regions. Beechworth, Bright, Rutherglen, Glenrowan, and Milawa.
Our tours are not your average tour. Every restaurant, winery and attraction is hand selected and of the highest quality.
There is no rock left un-turned during the planning of these trips with high recommendations available for viewing at Trip Advisor.
Twin, single or multi share accommodation is available. Either combination is in one of our executive suites.
Catering for Seniors
When booking an Advance Motel Tour, you know you are in good hands. A full time Tour Leader is allocated to assist at every turn, ground floor suites and special touches to ensure you feel at home.
Special dietary needs are catered for and a well deserved rest day is included if so desired.
As the accommodation is centrally located to all of the regions we visit means that only relatively short distances on the coach are required to reach our daily destinations. That means no need to rise before 7 am and we get home at a reasonable hour at night. Overall, there is more of experiencing the surrounding regions rather than watching them go by while travelling on the coach.
As our tours are of high quality, dining at many restaurants and wineries are part of the package. We understand that restaurant quality food can at times be “rich” and not always suitable to sensitive stomachs, we do hand select the menu to ensure it is balanced, satisfying and of “top restaurant” standard.
For your peace of mind, Chemists, Doctors and Hospitals are just a few minutes away if required.
We do understand that sometimes things just don’t go to plan, which is why our seniors cancellation policy includes a full refund if cancelled prior to 30 days prior to arrival.
Although our existing tours are fabulous tours, we are more than happy to individualise a tour to meet specific requirements.
Minimum groups of 15 are required to secure a tour which are particularly suited to Probus Groups or other seniors organisations.

This tour incorporates Bright activities and or festivities.
