Welcome to Good Times Tours

A Melbourne based tour business that specialises in small group wine, hiking & cycling adventures throughout Victoria.

Good Times Tours is owned and operated by Jono Ingram and specialises in wine tours and in the warmer months we lead small group camping & backpacker stay trips to Wilsons Promontory, Grampians and the Great Ocean Road. We also specialise in taking guests on self-guided multi-day private tours along Victoria’s epic Great Ocean Walk. Our adventures are about being active and enjoying some of the best short hikes, beaches, waterfalls, sunsets & sunrises Victoria has to offer. Our tours are mostly private however we do offer public tours to Wilson’s Promontory & the Grampians during key holiday periods like long weekends etc.

When we aren’t out hiking & camping, we love taking groups out to Victoria’s wine regions including the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula along with upcoming regions like Heathcote and the Macedon Ranges.

Private Wine Tours Victoria

Since 2015 we’ve taken hundreds of groups on private wine tours throughout Victoria’s wine regions. From the Yarra Valley, Heathcote, Macedon Ranges, Bellarine Peninsula and beyond. Our tours are tailored to each individual groups needs.

Absolutely! We know each wine region like the back of our hand and can tailor an itinerary to suit your needs.

100% - We will organise an awesome itinerary and ensure your day out with the girls is one to remember!

For private tours, we will pick your group up from within Metropolitan Melbourne. If it's convenient we can also add a secondary pickup location. For groups on the outer suburban fringes we may charge slightly more to cover time and fuel costs, however we take pride in making our tours more affordable than others.

I get asked this a lot. My personal favourite is Heathcote because the quality of the cellar door experiences is amazing. It's here where you are often meeting the winery owners plus the cellar doors are often quiet and if you love red wine, it's arguably Victoria's best region to visit.

Depending on the region, the wineries will open at 10am or 11am and will close at 5pm. Usual pickup times are between 9am-10am and drop-off is usually around 6pm.

Your Guide – Jono Ingram

Good Times Tours is my passion project and since 2015 I’ve had the pleasure of running over 50 hiking and camping tours to Victoria’s best National Parks including Wilson’s Promontory & the Grampians. I’m also a massive fan of Victoria’s Great Ocean Walk and wanted to deliver flexible and affordable hiking trips to small groups who are happy to camp and or stay in local accommodation. The 100km route offers approx. 60km of epic trail and by incorporating the drive down the Great Ocean Road, side trips into the Otways rainforest & finishing with visit’s to Victoria’s icons like the 12 Apostles I’m able to offer guests a really rich sightseeing and hiking experience. For interstate and overseas guests looking to maximise their sightseeing options, I also incorporate visits from the Great Ocean Road/Great Ocean Walk up to the Grampians and then back to Melbourne via the Grampians Wine Region. In late 2021 Victoria’s newest long distance hiking trail the Grampians Peaks Trail is due to open and I’ll be spending a significant amount of time hiking the entire length of the trail to put together the best itineraries possible for my guests which will include camping and accommodation options and return transport from Melbourne.

For Melbourne locals who enjoy a wine or two, you’ll be glad to know I’ve organised over 100 wine tours to Victoria’s regions including the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula, Bellarine Peninsula, Heathcote, Macedon Ranges, Rutherglen and the King Valley, so you can have every confidence that I know where Victoria’s best cellar door experiences are and can accommodate a wine tour to suit your groups needs.

Whats New

Good Times Tours is now offering bespoke cycling tours!

Rail trail and victorian cycling tours

As a long time cyclist I’ve always wanted to showcase Victoria’s best trails to guests and this summer, I’ve bought a 6 bike vertical bike rack that now allows me to run small group cycling tours to Victoria’s best rail trails and mountain bike trails. If you are looking for a bespoke cycling tour that can include camping and or food/wine experiences please get in touch.

Grampians Peaks Trail Now Open!

The highly anticipated 160km Grampians Peaks Trail is now officially open as of November 13th 2021. Victoria’s newest long distance hiking trail extends from Mount Zero in the Northern Grampians to Dunkeld in the Southern Grampians.
