Great ocean road
This tour is an absolute must for anyone visiting Melbourne. Acacia tours will pace the tour to your interests and requirements. Our tour guide and driver Adam was very knowledgeable, with a great sense of humour and used his experience to make our tour memorable. The scenery was incredible with a coffee break at the historic lighthouse ( which included fresh scones) , an exceptional lunch at Apollo bay before heading off to the Twelve Apostles, plus he knew exactly where to find dozing Koalas on the way. The experience of the return trip to Melbourne in the helicopter along the ocean road landing on the floating pontoon outside our hotel was an amazing an experience and a definite highlight of our trip.

Well done Acacia - brilliant attention to detail and a fantastic experience all round

Fantastic touring with Acacia Tours and Stuart!!
Stuart guided my daughter and I through two fantastic days of touring The Great Ocean Road and Phillip Island. I cannot think of one thing that could have been changed or improved in any way. Stuart was perfect in each professional way: prompt, courteous, well organized, had a lovely clean car, offered cold water and any other item needed; however Stuart also was a warm, thoughtful and insightful travel companion. I highly recommend Acacia Tours!! I will definitely use this company any time I am in Australia and I suggest you do the same. I also wish you to be lucky enough to have Stuart as your guide.

A highlight of our visit to Australia
Aug 2019
Although the weather was uncooperative and we had to drive back to Melbourne, rather that take the helicopter, Stuart made it a truly memorable day--he was knowledgeable, thoughtful and a pleasure to be with. The trip was amazing--lots of gorgeous scenery and wildlife--and it was one of our favorite days of the two weeks we spent in Australia. We only wish we could clone him so that we can tour with him in other places, too--but we will definitely look up Acacia Tours the next time we're in Melbourne.

My husband and I did this in December...fantastic experience! From the moment we booked, Paul emailed with suggestions to meet our needs, nothing was too much effort. The day of our trip we were met by Stuart, could not have asked for a friendlier or more informative guide, again, nothing was too much trouble. I told him we would like to see a koala in the wild...Stuart knew just where to take us to make that dream come true. We stopped for morning tea and lunch, very good choices. A lovely touch was being given a glass of bubbly at the beach, we felt like royalty!! Superb sights during the whole trip and all topped off with a helicopter ride along the coastline! A massive thank you to both Stuart and Paul for making our day so special...treasured memories :) Jane and Steve

What a delight to receive your feedback Jane and Steve. It was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with you both and we are so pleased your experience delivered treasured memories. The incorporation of a helicopter return flying over the spectacular coast really caps off a perfect day. Thanks so much for choosing Acacia Luxury Private Tours. Kind Regards Stuart

Unforgettable day, unbelievable service!
Sep 2018 • Family
If you are still contemplating booking with Acacia tours - DO IT NOW! We could not have had a better day. Olivia was our guide and we can't wait to get back and do another tour with her. This was the one day our whole group was looking forward too and the day was more than we could ever expect!

Olivia took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for in the day. She checked every box we were looking for and more. We even had the lucky experience of seeing a Koala on the ground and up close - an experience we won't forget.

There are so many tours to choose from, but you will not be upset choosing Acacia during your travels. The whole team works with you to build the experience you are looking for. Not only did we have the best day exploring the Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles, but Acacia also helped us in finding activities and sites in the city for the rest of the stay.

I hope to find myself back in Melbourne and to tour around with Acacia! Thank you for providing our family an unforgettable experience on our trip of a lifetime!

Thank-you very much for making the effort to share your positive experience Katie. We concur, Olivia is an outstanding guide and she will be thrilled to receive this feedback. The Great Ocean Road is an epic journey - unmissable for any visitor to Melbourne. From all accounts your journey included a wonderful encounter with a wild koala! Katie, thanks for choosing Acacia for your touring needs and it would be a privilege to show you another region of our state on your next visit. Kind Regards Stuart

Best decision we have made!
Aug 2018 • Couples
Choosing Acacia is one of the best decisions my wife and I have ever made in all our travels. We usually do not write reviews but not doing so for this trip cannot justify the amazing service given to us by Stuart. Service was beyond the (Great Ocean Road) horizon.

The car was speckless and extremely comfortable. There are fruits, snacks and drinks right within reach. The weather was rather unkind on that day but it was compensated by Stuart's genuine concern for us. We were brought umbrellas while queueing under the rain for the helicopter ride even though we did not ask for them! Jackets, beanies and towels were prepared for us as well.

Stuart made sure we thoroughly enjoyed each destination and allowed us to take however long we needed for pictures and sightseeing. He was never in a rush to end the day. In fact, on our way back to the city, Stuart remained a safe driver and maintained a comfortable speed.

You will never regret booking a tour with Acacia. We will be recommending their service to all our families and friends with great confidence!

Super charged exciting fun filled day
We highly recommend Acacia tours. They are a class act. From the extremely comfortable luxury car to the professional and personable experience, Stuart was amazing. He did not miss any detail and gave an excellent and informative local tour. We’ve done extensive international travel and Acacia is THE BEST.

It certainly was a fun-filled day and it was our pleasure to spend it with y'all ;) The decision to employ a one-way helicopter transfer to or from the Twelve Apostles on the Great Ocean Road is always an inspired one. As was visiting the Great Ocean Road in the off season when the majestic seas are at their hypnotic best. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience and for choosing Acacia Tours.

Unbelievable Tour!
Feb 2018 • Friends
Well, we didn't have the helicopter ride, but we sure did have an amazing time. We did a 12-hour driving tour of the Great Ocean Road, and then the next day had a wine tasting tour in the Yarra Valley. Both days were sensational! Peter and Simon are top notch guides. We all learned a lot and both gentlemen were professional, prompt, and very engaging. I would recommend them again wholeheartedly.

Winery, wildlife sanctuary, great ocean rd
We took 2 excursions with Stewart who is fantastic. First was a winery tour with a stop at the wildlife sanctuary. Some good wines, a special stop and Chandon for bubbly. A walk through the behind the scenes operation at Chandon along with a guided tour of the wild life sanctuary which was worth the trip. Up close encounters with local wildlife.
Day 2 was an early morning start to the Great ocean rd. A full day with Great stoops all along the way.

The Great Ocean Road spectacular / the shipwreck coast

Great Ocean Road Tour

Our group experienced a memorable tour - unforgettable! The Great Ocean Road is apparently one of the world’s great coastal road trips and it did not disappoint. Amazing scenery and wildlife experiences along the way made all the more special with the immense local knowledge of our friendly tour guide, Stuart.

The Acacia vehicle was a brand-new Audi Q7 - clean and luxurious with amenities, snacks, and drinks. The lunch included was at a very classy restaurant where we enjoyed local seafood and great local wine – superb. Stuart took us to places where we were able to appreciate the grandeur of the coast and interact with wildlife while largely avoiding the crowded group tour buses. He apparently grew up in this area which was obvious - could not imagine there being a more expert guide of the Great Ocean Road.

We were in awe of the sandstones cliffs and rock formations with thunderous oceans below. Another highlight was the spectacular helicopter flight over the Shipwreck Coast and Port Campbell hamlet. Overall, this was an amazing experience and Acacia Tours and Stuart exceeded all our expectations. Wish we could do it all over again.
