Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The scenery is breathtaking up in the mountains, and I think I still haven't recovered from the scale and majesty of the view at Reed Lookout. Don't hesitate to go in winter, MacKenzie Falls is spectacular and full this time of year, and the kangaroos don't seem to mind the cold so you'll definitely be able to get up close and personal (respectfully!)

Literally from the moment Rachael picked us up in the morning, I knew we were going to have an absolute blast. She was so kind, so funny and made everyone feel welcome. We learned so much about the history of all the little towns along the way along with the special connection that Aboriginal people have with the Grampians, and even learned about geology and wildlife!

We had varying ages and fitness levels in our group but Rachael was incredibly accommodating and made sure that everyone got the full experience, and felt looked after. She even passed around some hand painted watercolor guides to Melbourne that she'd made in lockdown for everyone to see! You can tell she genuinely loves her job and I can't thank her enough for making this trip so memorable and perfect!

All to say, if you're going to book a Grampians tour, make it this one!

It was superb! Thanks to our tourguide Leonie we had an unforgatteble experience in the Grampians. The weather was perfect, we did see all animals in wildlife and even close, Wallabies, Roos, even a Dear, all kind of bird. Leonie made the ride shortwhile with her interesting stories and nice music she specially sampled for the tour. Thank you again!

Leonie was our tour guide and she was the best tour guide we ever had. She was very nice and warm with all of us. She told us lots of cool information about the places and the animals that we saw during the tour, including really cool stories of creation from the indigenous people. She was super patient, very knowledgeable, and answered all my questions too. I could tell she’s very passionate about her work and she loves what she does, which is really refreshing to see. All the lookout points and landmarks we stopped at were absolutely stunning! And Leonie kept us all together and she wouldn’t leave anyone behind, which is very nice as well. She also gave us plenty of time at each site. And she made sure we were all fed, properly hydrated, and she gave us all plenty of opportunities to use the facilities too. We had a great time with Leonie and I believe that you will too. We love you, Leonie :D

Sincerely,

Rosine & Elliot

I‘ve done this tour couple of days ago and I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is traveling by himself and wants to have some company and without worrying about anything. Our tour guide, Leonie was really friendly and outgoing. She knows all the great lookout spots and places where emus and kangaroos hangout. Pick up on time, drop off on time as well which isn’t often with tour companies in general! You can be sure you’ll end the end with amazing memories and pictures!

I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for a day tour of the Grampians. Our guide, Felix, was fantastic!! We went on a particularly hot day and he made the proper adjustments to the trip to ensure that the people who wanted to be out and about could do so, while giving the option to rest for those who wanted to stay out of the heat. Everything was well organized and, of course, the Grampians are beautiful!

Booked the Grampians National Park tour and it's definitely a must-go. Ruth is wonderful in hearing my concerns pertaining to prayers during the tour and she relayed my concerns to my tour guide on the day of tour, who is Rachael! Truly appreciate on how accomodating and her advise on where is a good place for prayers Rachael has a good sense of humour and there was never a boring moment throughout the tour. She teaches us on the small towns that we passed by enroute to Grampians. And she takes good care of us, making sure our bellies are filled and give us ample times of toilet breaks. There are magnificent views of the mountain and falls, and kangaroos, definitely unforgettable and highly recommended go-to tour. Well done, Go West Tours!

Be sure to take a camera. The scenery was incredible; we saw kangeroos and lots of birds. The hike through the park was very rocky, so ensure you wear good footwear. I wore walking runners and was fine. Before we started the hike, our guide made sure everyone understood the hiking conditions. Sarah was a great tour guide; she was knowledgeable, attentive, safety conscious and very organized. Sarah liked keeping the group together, referring to us often as family - she even wanted us all to cross the road together. Sarah also made great arrangements for lunch and dinner.

I did this tour on the 14th of March and had an incredible time! Katherine picked me up in the morning and was full of amazing energy from the very start. She told us stories about the area and kept us well entertained throughout the day. Turns out she is also an actor and if she is half as good at acting as she is at being a tour guide then she's destined for big things. She prepared morning tea for us in a place called Eureka which was a very interesting stop that I was not expecting. Then we went to Hall's Gap for a quick hike, some lunch, and then more exploring. We then headed to the magnificent MacKenzie Falls and then finished at Baroka Lookout which was breathtaking. This tour takes all of the hassle out of exploring what is quite a remote area. You hit all of the highlights without having to worry about a thing and can be back in the city in time to grab a late dinner. If you are thinking about exploring the Grampians then I highly recommend taking this tour!

Mum and her partner had the best tour experience with Leonie @GoWest Tours. She was extremely professional, friendly, educated & fun. Her ability to communicate in several languages was a big plus! As a local in Melbourne, I'm personally grateful to her for showing mum the beauty of Australia and make her feel welcome.

The eco part of this tour was worth five stars. We visited several locations in the Grampians National Park including MacKenzie falls and The Grand Canyon. It was a full day with no time wasted so it was great. We left at 7.00am and returned at 10.20pm so it was good value. Lunch and morning tea was included. Adrian, our guide cooked three lovely cakes for morning tea. The Australiana music in the afternoon was great. But the early morning music whilst picking up travellers was of a variable volume sometimes fine but often too loud making it difficult to have a quiet conversation or listen to a personal mp3. It was even louder coming back into Melbourne and quite spoiled the end of the day making it impossible to finish listening to the book I was enjoying listening to. It would be great if the eco tour theme was incorporated into the whole day not just morning tea time to 9.30 pm.
