Very enjoyable tour as part of a small group. This is a true gem of VIC that all must visit experience.

We have been so lucky to take so many amazing people to this awe inspiring region. It has indeed been a privilege in every sense. Thanks for posting the review. We are now based in Tasmania and our Great Ocean Road Tours are few and far between but we will make sure that the occasional private tours we still do help people come together across nationalities and feel wonderfully insignificant amongst nature. Thanks and thanks to all who have supported us and myself. We have never won a Victorian Tourism Award. We were never supported by a single travel agent in Melbourne. (If you think you get independent advice from Travel Agents just look at the top 10 on Trip Advisor for any city, see which ones are small group owner operated and then see who the Travel Agent has brochures prominently displayed). Bet you cant find us, nor Escape Discovery, nor Wild Wombat Escapes who all consistently get above 90% five star reviews. You will find bigger companies who are mostly getting 60-80% five star reviews being promoted. Yet Outback Billy has scored 100% five star reviews in 4 out of 5 years he has operated as Outback Billy and for every guest and friend who just shared an amazing journey with us. That is reward enough for us. Social media now means the best owner operators can be successful without support from travel agents. Thanks to all who write a review not just for us but for any quality owner operator small group tour operator. I have met so many wonderful people on the tours. Thank you.

My husband and I did this tour while I was in Melbourne for work. We were able to book on our last day in Australia and it was amazing!! Outback Billy was so knowledgeable and welcoming! We learned so much and also got to see incredible look outs that regular tours don't take u to. I loved the small size of the group and it was more personal. We did get some rain and wind so I was a little concerned about that but it made for the best experience as Outback Billy said we would see the Great Ocean Road in all of her glory and he was right. There are no words to explain the power of the ocean we experienced that day! Thank you Outback Billy for a great experience! You must take this tour!!

With so many tour options, I had no idea which operator to choose. I needed to go on a particular date (last minute) and Billy's was available so I bought his tour on the internet. When I called to confirm, I felt a sense of relief given his relaxed and cheery voice. Pick up from my hotel was at the exact time he specified. If you have any vision of what an Australian would look like, then you can picture Billy and all the laid back happiness he brings to his tours.

I sat next to a woman who was traveling solo as well and we spent the rest of the time together. Our group of 10 included me an American, Germans, and Burmese. We very quickly became a team and enjoyed each other's company.

Billy was full of fascinating stories and facts. He was very patient and engaging. He went beyond the tour guide role and indulged my curious questions with insightful responses.

Don't hesitate to select Billy for any of your tour needs. This excursion has been the highlight of my visit to Melbourne.

I took this tour last week with 3 of my close friends and this is hands down one of the best experiences we had on our Melbourne trip.

We got to experience over 8 incredible places, as well as dozens of popular local highlights along the way -beaches, gorges, rainforests, koalas, 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, London Bridge, Mad Max’s house and much more!

Outback Billy was as entertaining as he was insightful and informative -and his genuine Aussie nature, local knowledge and sense of humour gave it a uniquely Australian flavour.

I would easily rate this the best tour you can take (for both quality and value) and if you want to experience the famous sights of the Great Ocean Road (as well as some amazing hidden gems that no other tours will take you on), do yourself a favour and book this tour.

Thank you so much Billy for providing my friends and I a truly fun, exciting and sensational day that we’ll always remember!

Had a day trip with Billy along the ocean road, solo traveller and was made to feel welcome and part of the group straight away. Billy is friendly and very knowledgeable, even when the weather turned and was tough Billy kept everyone's spirits up and made sure we had a great tour. He knows lots about the region and is easy to chat to so not just giving you generic information.

I would totally recommend Billy's your you will not be disappointed

I did the Great Ocean Road with Billy a couple of weeks ago. I'm not really into private toirs, but this one was a really good option. Billy was really nice, knew a lot of things re. the GOR and surroundings. We visit the most important places around and we avoided the crowed times. I definitely recommend this tour. Thanks Billy

I booked onto this trip as I only had a spare weekend during a business trip. Billy was fantastic, great fun and a wealth of useful information. He made a real effort in making sure the group had a chance to get to know each other, which was great for the solo travellers. Fabulous experience from a knowledgeable guide who made sure we spent the time we needed to properly experience the area instead of being rushed from one stop to the next. Thanks Billy for a fantastic time!

We had such a great time with Billy as our tour guide! He's entertaining, loves his passengers and just wants them to have a great experience, and is such a hoot! If you're ever in Melbourne, and want to tour the Great Ocean Road, plus get off the beaten path where all the other tours go- Outback Billy's is the tour to take! Thanks so much Billy!!

I was so lucky that can join Billy's Great ocean road tour.
We only had 3 people that day so Billy just drove a car.
I very enjoyed the small group one day tour.
Billy is a very nice, enthusiastic, interesting and professional local tour guide.
He treated us like friends.
Welcome everyone to join Outback Billy's tour.
