  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

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.

    Really enjoyed this tour with Aaron. He made sure to give us the maximum view of local sights and wildlife. It was fun watching him, as an experienced guide, get just as excited as we would seeing yet another wallaby. At one point, he counted out 46 for us in a relatively small area. He brings a lot of passion to this tour.

    The weather was iffy but our driver made it fun. Feeding the kangaroos and wallabies was lovely. The penguins were so cute. When we went to see the penguin parade, our guide kept losing us, it would have been nice for him to have something to identify him.

    Travis was passionate about his job by answering all of our questions at the Moonlit Sanctuary, the Noobies, or Penguin Parade. Quick stops at a bakery, for dinner in Cowes and the beach. Great memories were made.

    I highly recommend this tour to any solo traveler as myself or groups thar want to enjoy the Great Ocean Road in a chill way. It couldn’t have been better! We were lucky to have blue sky all day and our guide was fantastic! Always giving a huge amount of knowledge and curiosities along the way. It’s a long trip to get to the apostles but Birt (pretty sure I’m not spelling correctly) made the trip much easier. Although we had to manage to do things in a fast way during the stops, was totally wise so we could have a nice experience and don’t have any delays. Thank you for the experience!

    Myself and my partner booked the Great Ocean Road tour for the end of December. Overall we had a great day out and I would 100% recommend booking on this tour.
    We had a great driver, Kel, who was really friendly, cheerful and full of knowledge. She offered to take pictures of us, stopped the bus so we could see koalas in the wild and played great music the whole day. She made our experience a great one.
    The trip to the 12 Apostles was staggered so there were lots of other great things to see on the way, such as a chocolate shop, beaches, lunch stop and a rainforest walk. The highlight of the day was reaching the 12 Apostles as the views were breathtaking. We were lucky enough to have the weather on our side which made all the difference, so I would recommend checking the forecast in advance of booking. One other suggestion I have is to pack extra drinks and snacks for the journey as its a 3 hour drive back. Booking out of season would also be wise as it was extra busy with tourist on our visit.
    Overall, I would recommend booking on this tour in particular due to the tour guide Kel who made our day extra special and memorable!

    Rachel was a great tour guide and really fun, she showed us a range of different animals that we may not have otherwise seen.

    Nice Zoo. Parking cost $2.20 for 5 hours and with a quick lunch we walked out just on 5 hours.
    A few animals missing would have been good to have a list at the front of which animals were not there.
    There were still lots to see we even saw baby Meerkats which was pretty special.

    Excellent Tours, Phillips Island Penguin Parade, and koala sightings were amazing! The only downside was ignorant tourists flashing their photos at the penguins after being repeatedly told no photos because it scares and blinds the small birds at night.

    We enjoyed everything about our day as was provided by the tour company and our driver, Ilkay! As others have mentioned, the only thing that detracted from the special, extraordinary experience, was other people not following rules, standing in front of others, pushing for seating, and taking photos of the penguins when repeatedly scolded. Sad that we are there to help the endangered wildlife and some people are more concerned with their instagram. Otherwise- certainly worth the extra $$ for the penguin Plus seats; others in our tour said they couldn’t see nearly as much in general seating. Highly recommend this tour from Melbourne!
