I took a 2 day tour to Great Ocean Road and Phillip Island and I would highly recommend that to everyone. The scenery was fantastic and you get to see wild wallabies and koalas too.
If you are taking any of their tours I highly recommend you find out if your itinerary includes any animal sanctuaries or nurseries. You will very likely go to an Australian animal sanctuary which is included in the tour price. You will get to pet and feed wallabies and other animals. Don't pay for kangaroo/wallaby encounter at Melbourne zoo if you are taking these tours. It will save you about $30.
If you are taking a 2 day tour keep in mind that the accommodation is going to be a backpackers hostel so make sure to have towel and warm clothes (in winter) with you.
Even though the weather might be good I highly recommend you be prepared for sun, rain, and wind.
My husband and I took the 2 day Great Ocean Road/Phillip Island Tour and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Driver/Guide Tim picked us up right on time at our hotel and and we began our tour in a van with 5 other people. I cannot include enough positive comments about the knowledge, interest and care Tim showed for our group. He went out of his way to make sure all of our expectations and needs were met. I thought we would be stopping at restaurants along the way to have snacks and meals. However, a real highlight for me was that he truly wanted us to experience the Aussie way of life so we picnicked and had casual take out meals in picturesque locations. He even cooked a typical Australian breakfast for us! I loved it! Throughout the trip, he shared detailed history of this wonderful country and fascinating stories about its culture. He also searched the roadsides carefully to assure we would get to see some of the wildlife firsthand. Our hotel for the night was very moderate, 1960's, but very clean and the management was more than accommodating. We took our tour in November and at times, it was very cold during parts of the trip so I wished for a jacket and gloves. I also wish I had worn hiking/athletic shoes. Overall, I will cherish the memories of this fabulous outing thanks to our fabulous guide!
Went on the 2 day trip to great ocean road, apostles, Maru wildlife park and Phillip island penguin parade. Neil the driver was excellent, always spot on with his timing, always made sure everyone was happy and well catered for, the trip design was great. Overnight in bells beach backpackers with a great barbecue and lovely breakfast the next morning. Really great time, very highly recommended.
We've had a great time with Wildlife Tours Australia on 2 day tour to Great Ocean Road and Phillip Island ( 31 Oct., 2015). Highly recommend that to everyone. We went with an excellent tour guide/driver TIM. We traveled to various tour companies on this our visit to Australia and decided that Tim was the best guide. He was so knowledgeable about every site, very friendly and takes care of all the details in order to make everybody comfortable. We love the music he played along the long hours trip. Best Regards, Tim, from six ladies from Lithuania…
I was down in Melbourne for a short visit as my parents came to Australia for the first time. We did the Phillip Island and Great Ocean Road tour and we can highly recommend everyone Wildlife Tours. The tours suit all ages and are very well planned. Both guides were excellent and gave so much additional information about the animals and the landscape.
