what do our guests say about this trip ?....
Simon was one of the best tour guides we had in Australia. He enjoys his job, and it shows in what he delivers. He took us on the Great Ocean Road and knew how to avoid the mass tour buses, find the best restaurants, and locate the best wildlife experiences. He was interesting in conversation as there are many hours in the car discussing Australian politics, travel sites, and Melbourne restaurants. He arrived on time, had a comfortable vehicle, and knew all the best look outs and phot spots - what you'd expect from a top guide. I would recommend booking early, as I assume he books out and refers to other guides. I will definitely call him again on my next trip to Melbourne.

" Great Ocean Road Private Tour "
I did extensive research for the best private tours on the Great Ocean Road before landing in Melbourne. My boss and I were flying 16 hours there for a short work trip and only had one day off to explore - I wanted to make sure it was perfect! The Private Tour Guide had the best reviews - and lived up to them. Peter was an excellent tour guide. He knew everything about the land and its history. We did the tour in reverse - starting at the 12 apostles - which meant we avoided all the crowds of tourists. Peter was also very accommodating (made sure we got to see both koalas and kangaroos up close). It was a great day and I highly recommend it to anyone!!
