3 Day Great Ocean Road and Grampian Tour

This was a great tour, with one of the best features being the highly informative and engaging tour guide Cam. He went out of his way to provide a wealth of interesting information on many subjects and demonstrated a genuine and sincere curiosity about his customers, as well as sharing many of his own travel adventures with the group. Other reviewers have described the details of the 3 days, so I won't repeat them. Even though the views of the Great Ocean Road were fabulous on the first day, I enjoyed the second day the best as we were in less crowded areas, and spent much of the day hiking and seeing wonderful wildlife. I also loved the BBQ. The small group size also made it possible to bond as a group.


Overall, it was a good blend of many experiences and we saw some fabulous country . It was a highlight of my trip.

Amazing 3 days

I did a 3 day Great Ocean Road and Grampians tour with Dave over Christmas, it was absolutely amazing and I really enjoyed it being a single 50+ traveller. Dave was hilarious and knew how to treat everyone on the tour. He encouraged me to do things that I didn't think I would be able to do. Even if it took me a while to get back down from the Pinnacle. Positive was I am amazed how many things we could do in such a short time. The BBQ was great and being Australian it was the first time I ever ate Kangaroo and it was amazing. Only negative was the crowds on the Great Ocean Road but you expect that over Christmas.


Highly recommend the tour for anyone and I hope you are lucky enough to get Dave
