First off, our guide Fred, should run for PM of Australia. He never ran out of stories during the entire day and his enthusiasm was contagious. The highlight of the day was our visit to Great Ocean Ecolodge and our first hand, up close, kangaroo experience. We saw large

Thank you for your fabulous review Paula, but to be honest, we don't want Fred to run for Prime Minister because we would find him hard to replace on our tours.😊 I should also point out that although Fred goes all out to make our tours memorable, he actually took you to a park in Melbourne for his unique possum experience as Brisbane is app a 24 hour drive from here 😊 But we certainly are so glad to read that both our tour and Fred created such fabulous memories for you. Again, thank you so much for your recommendation.

Our group had 3 busses and We were fortunate to get the smallest bus with a thoughtful and knowledgeable driver Ricarda. The day with Ricarda felt like a private tour, and she pointed out all the important things not to miss, with a story about each new view. We saw loads of

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on our Great Ocean Road tour. We certainly agree it is quite spectacular and FYI, (if you go to YouTube and search for Florida Georgia Line 'Holy',) you will see an amazing bird's eye view of the area you visited. Safe travels and we hope to see you back here soon.

This tour was great! What made it extraordinary was my tour guide Fred. He is very friendly, very knowledgable, and also funny! I travel quite often and go on tours, and there's no one as good as him from my experience. He has stories to tell from him doing these tours for days!

Thank you so much for such an amazing review Chris. As a seasoned traveler, I'm certain Fred will be even more pleased to read your glowing comments of him as a guide. Fred did mention what a fun time he had with this group and how ALL of you managed to stay awake the entire 12 hours of the tour. We, and I'm sure Fred, would love to see you on another of our tours when you next visit down under

We took the small group Great Ocean Road tour from Melbourne. Our guide Toby was informative and personable. He was early to our hotel for pick-up, waiting for us curbside. After a second stop for additional passengers we were on the way. We had a number of stops for photo

On behalf of Toby and Oceania, thank you for taking the time to post this review. It certainly is one of the most picturesque and memorable drives in the world. Mixed in with the amazing scenery is of course an abundance of wildlife which is always a huge plus for our overseas guests. We are glad to have been part of creating some amazing memories.

Fred made the day enjoyable with his endless supply of anecdotes and willingness to answer all our questions. I particularly enjoyed the walk in the bush where we saw kangaroos in the wild as well as the wonderful coastal scenery. Fred obviously knows a lot about the areas we

Thanks again for yet another positive review of one of our tours. It IS a long day but guests are constantly amazed at how quickly the hours fly by. We are particularly pleased that you enjoyed the encounter with the kangaroos at the Ecology centre as this is something exclusive to Oceania Tours and Safaris.
