The Future

Our guide is a work in progress but committed to staying informed and actively seek to learn more to be better equipped to create an environment that is welcoming and accessible to all. 

We acknowledge that not all disabilities are visible. Creating a culture of inclusion where all guests feel respected, and welcomed is essential.  We encourage our guest to support this by showing respect and kindness to each other.

We welcome and encourage feedback to help us improve our accessibility and inclusion guide. Please do not hesitate to reach out by emailing us at

We believe the most memorable experiences aren’t simply about wining and dining. They’re about meeting the makers and uncovering the stories behind their creations. Hop It delivers you direct to producers’ doorsteps where we’ve nurtured relationships so that they’ll welcome you into their world. You’ll also connect with other hoppers on your route. Our buses are mini (but mighty) and we purposefully only hop with like-minded solo travelers, intrepid couples and small groups of flavour-curious folk. This ensures that you’ll never feel lost in the crowd. 


The story of Hop It’s founders is one of love and wine.

Hop It Founders Sara and Jon

From the Shiraz-soaked vineyards of McLaren Vale, to picking grapes at Steel’s Gate in the Yarra Valley, to honeymooning on a Tuscan wine tour, Sara and Jon’s explorations always seemed to include a glass of the good stuff close at hand.

On a return trip back from one of their adventures, it occurred to Sara and Jon that they could do daytrips better. He had built a multi-faceted career in restaurants, while she has an educational background in tourism. So they combined their affinity for hospitality and travel (and wine, always wine) to create Hop It.


Not only are Sara and Jon the founders of Hop It, but you might even spot them driving our buses around Victoria. They can’t wait to share stories with you along the way while providing custom recommendations and local insights.
