    Mark’s Penguin tour is the best!!
    My wife and I had a lovely day with Mark. Our tour started by touring some of Melbourne’s historic neighborhoods. One stop included stopping to see the beautiful beach huts on Brighton Beach. Mark being a native of Melbourne, gives a wonderful perspective of the history of Melbourne. We went to Moonlit Sanctuary to see the the Koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats etc….. off to several beach scenic overlooks on our way to Phillips Island to see the Penguins!! Prior to the evening penguin arrival Mark recommended a nice Italian restaurant. The night with the penguins should be included on everyone’s bucket list. To see thousands of adorable little blue penguins arrive on quest at sundown and march past you to their burrows is a reminder on how wonderful nature is!!! Everyone of all ages were in awe of these little off balanced adorable penguins!! Final thoughts, Mark is the best!!! His energy and enthusiasm is off the charts! He opens doors, he gets ahead to secure your passes through entry gates. He knows where the best locations are for photo opportunities. He also takes photos of you if needed. Bottom line, we would use Mark’s services again in a heartbeat!! He is the best!!! Mark F. From Florida

    Customizable Half Day Tour
    Mark was patient and well-mannered when there was a tech glitch on his booking website. We managed to book a half day (0900-1400) tour and Mark could customize it for us. He picked us up on time from our apartment; and also pre-booked the Koala tickets at Moonlit. He made it so stress-free for us! We had a wonderful time and took beautiful memorable pictures. Thank you so much!

    Brilliant four days in and around Melbourne
    We did a two-day tour along the great ocean road with a night at Port Campbell. The third day we had a day tour to Philip Island and on day four Mark guided us through Melbourne city. Mark drives safely, is very friendly and shares lots of information, facts and stories along the way. He made sure the children (11 and 13) got involved as well. Mark proposed to do the great ocean road in reverse to make the best of the weather, which turned out to be an excellent choice. We spent the sunniest day in Port Campbell National Park which gave brilliant views of the 12 apostles and other rock formations. On the more cloudy second day we saw big groups of wild kangaroos and wild koalas!

    Enjoyable day with Simon on the Great Ocean Road
    Our family of 5 had a great day on the Great Ocean Road tour with Simon from Mark's Tours. The itinerary was all that is promised on the TripAdvisor site and more! Simon, our very professional and friendly driver/guide customized the day to suit our preferences, going out of the way to spot wildlife for us. The van was clean and comfy (a must for a 12-hour tour). In addition to all the coastal formations, we saw Koalas, Kangaroos (on a golf course), and sadly, (with Simon's sharp eye) even an echidna that lie dead on the side of the road.

    Phillip Island
    Firstly, Mark picked us up on time, and it was a comfortable vehicle, he was informative and knew a lot about the areas that we were visiting, we learned a lot from his tour, and when we returned to our hotel, he gave our family Australian treats. Overall, it was a great tour and we enjoyed very much. Highly recommended.

    Day Trip with Mark
    Mark and his driver, Gary were both wonderful to spend the day with. Mark was very informative along the way accommodating by allowing for extra stops we requested. He made sure we didn’t spend too long at any one spot so we could do everything we had planned. He went out of his way to help us locate a koala in the wild! Water bottles and snacks were provided as well as a charging cable. Our van was very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!

    Great day for family with Mark
    Mark and Gary did a great job for our family of 9. Mark communicated well ahead of the trip and was accommodating for the needs of our group. During the day Mark provided history of the area along with answering the barage of questions about all things Australia. Being a native of Melbourne gives him a good perspective of how things have changed over time and an intimate knowledge of all the areas we visited. We saw Koalas, Roos, and Wallabies as well a a number of different birds. Lunch in Apollo Beach was great as it had many choices for everyone and all were convenient to walk to. All in all it was a pleasant day with local mate.

    BEST MELBOURNE LOCAL TOUR GUIDE
    We did TWO tours with Mark, this one and also the 1/2 day tour of Melbourne. Mark is the BEST tour guide that I had in Melbourne and in Australia (we had 5 different private tour guides between Sydney, Melbourne, Hamilton Island, Tasmania and Bruny Island). Mark loves what he does and excels at it. He is very knowledgable and extremely flexible and accommodating. He knows his stuff really well and adapts to changes in weather, traffic, etc. He has a great SENSE of HUMOR and he is just VERY NICE. He got us FIRST in line for the private experience with the Koala at the Moonlit Reserve (we could had waited 40 minutes in line if it was not for him). EVERYONE knows him when we got to any place, and he got the royal treatment for us. The tours and his explanations were excellent. I wish I could find a "Mark" at any city that I visit. !!!!!!

    Fantastic Tour
    Mark took us to popular spots and others off the beaten path on Phillips Island. He listened to what we wanted to do and suggested places we enjoyed. Mark is knowledgeable, friendly, and very customer service oriented. We learned a great deal about Melbourne and pertinent information relating to the tour we took. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip with Mark as our guide and would highly recommend him.

    Delightful Scenic Day with Mark, our guide, and Gary, our driver.
    Our family of 8 loved this private relaxing personalized tour of the scenic coastline, including the 12 apostles, the Razorback, beaches, and much wildlife! The Mercedes van was comfortable and roomy, and Mark could share his comments and love of this country side with us while Gary drove the winding roads. Everything was customized to our preferences and timeframe. A Delightful Day had by all! Highly recommend this dynamic duo- so kind and respectful of each person’s needs.

    Wonderful 2 days tour with superior service.
    Mark take care of my family very well throughout the whole trip (we are traveling with a 3 yo child and 2 elderly). He cater to our request and is flexible with the plan. We also managed to catch the best seats at the front of the viewing deck to see the penguins returning back to their burrows.

This was a wonderful introduction to Melbourne and Australia. Mark was a great host - we covered the downtown area, took the tram to some of the outlying areas, and walked through some of the wonderful malls. I would recommend this service to anyone new to Melbourne or looking to see what they may have missed on previous visits while exploring on their own.

My husband and I did a five-hour tour with Mark. He is very knowledgeable about Melbourne and Australia. We wanted to see as much of the area as we could in our limited time, so Mark made suggestions that worked out great. We especially enjoyed the interactions with the koalas and kangaroos at the Moonlit Sanctuary. Also the walking tour of the downtown alleyways, and the Brighton Beach bathing boxes. Mark went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and having a good time...he was even our private photographer. We highly recommend him!

We booked a tour with Mark on our first day in Melbourne which gave us a great intro into the city. He was knowledgeable, friendly and a good communicator. He helped us be able to navigate our way around for our next few days and gave us some great tips. A great experience!

Mark's local knowledge - as someone born and raised in the area - can't be beat! Amazing service too - I had briefed him beforehand of my father's mobility issues and he really kept that in mind not just during the planning phase prior to the tour, but even as we did the tour. Really enjoyed our time with Mark, and learned so much about Melbourne even though I had been to the area several times before. Highly recommend!

Wonderful walking tour of Melbourne followed by driving tour of outskirts of Melbourne - all in 4 hours. I learned so much about Melbourne from the combination of walking and driving along with Mark's vast local, architectural and historical knowledge. Mark was very interested in showing me the sights that interested me and not just the regular tour sights which I very much appreciated. Thanks Mark!

When we travel to new city, we first try to participate in free walking tours to get a feel for the city and then engage a private driver to visit the outskirts or other attractions that we want to see. Fortunately, we found Mark

Mark is a true professional and a gentleman.

Working with him to organize our itinerary was easy and very straightforward and as a result we had an excellent afternoon.

If we come back, we will definitely call Mark
