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.

    It’s a great day. Exactly what we expected. My parents don’t even speak English but they enjoyed driver's talking and playlist along the way, let along the magnificent views.

    Our guide Warren was very informative and brought a great energy to the group. He was also a very safe driver. The tour of the great ocean road was absolutely beautiful. Our bus was very clean and it’s about a 30 seater size bus which made the group feel more personal. I couldn’t recommend this tour strongly enough. It was fantastic.

    This tour was nothing short of amazing. We witnessed some of the most beautiful scenery one could imagine. Our favorite stop was the 12 Apostles. We paired the stop with an optional helicopter tour “worth the cost”. We were in awe of the beautiful blue waters and rock formations. I was a little on the fence because of the length of the tour. However no regrets after taking the tour. We had quite a few stops during the tour and the time actually went by fast. Our driver/guide Jai was great. He was very entertaining, informative, friendly and took quite a few photos of my wife and I during the trip. I would 100% recommend this tour.

    Private tour for four passengers from Regent Seven Seas. This was our favorite port of a 33 day cruise and really due to this tour. Stunning views from four different vantage points. Comfortable vehicle, great guide and driver. Took us to a great little restaurant for lunch. What a great day!

    Jools is a fun guide and awesome driver. She provided hot drinks and cake at Torquay overlooking the ocean. She was well organised and her instructions were clear. She made sure we had enough time at each stop. Very enjoyable

    It was an incredibly nice experience to have done this tour. Picking up at the hostel was super easy, I received a friendly welcome and I quickly met very nice people. Raph, the tour guide, is a very funny and friendly guy who pays attention to everything and everyone all day long. Raph also made it possible for us to see as many animals as possible. He was able to fulfill almost all of our wishes. I can wholeheartedly recommend this tour. I saw indescribably beautiful places and felt in good hands. A tour I will remember for a lifetime.

    Richard did a great job driving us on a very long but enjoyable day! He pulled into great spots for fabulous views with limited crowds, and provided us with interesting commentary on the Great Ocean Road and the communities along the way. Our stop at the Fishermen's cooperative for lunch was well timed to avoid any crowds and delicious! On our return home, he made sure we spotted kangaroos and flocks of cockatoos! We would definitely recommend using Bilby for a private tour.

    We used Melvin for a private Phillip Island Tour as well as for a private Great Ocean Road tour on a different day.

    Melvin is very easy to communicate with. He responds by email within 24h and is very organized. He also responds via Whats App.

    For Phillips Island, he picked us up at the airport, took us to Nobbies and a couple of hidden spots prior to the Penguin tour. He pre purchased our tickets and told us where to sit and was waiting for us at the end. It was a very long day and it was wonderful to fall asleep with no worries on the way back to the hotel. After a long flight, having everything taken care of was a big relief.

    For Great Ocean Road, I think Melvin went above and beyond for us as the trip was about twelve hours total. Melvin knows the best spots, how to avoid the large buses, has keen eye to find then Koalas, and knows every km of the road.

    For both tours, Melvin is wonderful to talk too. He knows a lot about the area and Australian history. It was easy to chat with him for a couple of hours at a time.

    For the Great Ocean Road especially, I highly recommend booking Melvin instead of driving yourself so you can enjoy the scenery vs worry about the road. Also I recommend booking Melvin so you know you will have a good experience vs trying to save some money on a less expensive option. His Mercedes van is very comfortable. He provides water and usb chargers. He drives very well on the windy roads so you feel safe. You are paying for peace of mind to know you will have a good experience regardless of traffic, rain, etc. He will get you the best trip you can have regardless of the unforeseen and you will not be stressed.

    I would recommend doing a 2 day tour in Great Ocean Road vs 1. There is just so much to see. We may try to do that next time.

    Melvin is also great for tips in Melbourne in general. We won’t hesitate to use him again on our next trip to Melbourne.

    This tour, made perfect by our guide Raphael went above and beyond my expectations. First with the age focus of the trip made it incredibly easy to make friends on the trip with other young travelers. It helped that Raph was such an easy going laid back guide that made awkward conversation seem like old friends. On top of just a great conversationalist, Raph constantly made it known what the schedule was, what we would be visiting and when to keep everything on track, which as a planner I really appreciated. Additionally, the effort to incorporate all of our individual request was appreciated. From a vegetarian dinner for Kat, to making sure I saw a kangaroo, I was very pleased. I was initially worried we wouldn't be seeing everything on thr Great Ocean Road and may miss out but that was quite the opposite. The tour structure by starting from reverse is brilliant, meaning all the popular destinations are super quite when you arrive at them making it more enjoyable. Overall a highly recommended tour, as long as one engages, isn't afraid to ask questions, even dumb ones, and sit back and relax!

    My husband & I took the private Great Ocean Road tour with James, it was everything we wanted and more. James was thoroughly knowledgeable, very personable and professional. Being a private tour he gave us options & asked what we were most interested in. I would use the tour company again in a heartbeat.

    Just finished the 4day/3night tour and have to say one of the best tours I have ever taken. Certainly, value for money . The tour was varied and wonderful scenery and great placed to eat. The Pace was relaxed, and our tour guide Jason was exceptional in making everyone relaxed and making sure everyone got to see what they wanted to see. Our age ranged varied from 27yrs to 70 but everyone got on and having a young energetic guide with lots of experience made a trip memorable. Thanks for showing our beautiful country

    A full day of amazing sights and sounds. Our guide, Adam, was incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. He made the experience a 12 out of 10. Worth every penny for a private car experience.
