"What an action-packed, stunning and value for money tour this is! I thoroughly enjoyed myself for the entire 3 days, with amazing scenery and wildlife the whole way. Eric the tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, and made the tour interesting from start to finish. We had great luck and saw koalas, a whale off the beach at Warrnambool, and even an echidna in the Grampians. The tour is a great mix of active walks, photo opportunities and time to relax."

I enjoyed this tour very much. The tour took in a LOT of sights in just three days, and went to the Grampians as well as the Great Ocean Road. Our driver-guide was Tom and he entertained the group not just with knowledgeable stories but also entertaining and highly apt song choices along the way. Good times.
100% absolutely recommend - only the second group tour that I have ever taken and would re-live the tour over again. Stunning scenery along the Great Ocean Road and in the Grampians National Park, amazing animals but not so friendly as to let me cuddle them and the passion of the tour guide, Jared shone through. Even a little bit of rain didn't dampen the trip for me or my travel buddies, or the kaolas, wallabies, kangaroos, emus... Loved it! Nikki, UK xx
