  • 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.

    Had an absolutely amazing experience. Sam the guide was great, giving lots of information and looking after everyone in the group. Going in a small group and being picked up at the hotel was definitely worth the little bit extra. The scenery is fantastic and I can’t recommend this tour enough.

    We had a amazing tour going to Great Ocean Road. Small group made it more personal, and our guide Ivan was very nice, helpful and provided a lot of information. Highly recommend this by Nara Day tours.

    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

    The Great Ocean Road was one of the best tours we ever did. We saw plenty of Kangaroos and we actually saw a Koala bear walking down the main street in Apollo Bay. Dandy was our driver, he knowledgeable and very entertaining. I highly recommend this tour.

    Our small group tour was as amazing as our driver Walter. We left early and got back late and covered so many picturesque locations along The Great Ocean Road.
    Walter communicated each stop highlights and time allocation clearly and it was just the right amount of time to see and enjoy and photograph each place and then head to the next.
    Walter told us he liked to get going early to beat the crowd and true to his word our captured photos were pristine shots of natural environments before most folks arrived.
    Beach walks, caves, rain forest walk, a stop at a little shopping village and a view of Bells Beach surfers were all part of our experience as well as the option of a helicopter trip over London Bridge and the Apostles. We took up the offer and saw a whale and calf as a bonus. We would completely recommend Walter and Around and About Tours and look forward to a future trip with them on our next visit to Melbourne.

    The weather was a bit soul destroying, but our guide James kept us in high spirits. I can only imagine how beautiful this place would be in the summer time. At least with the 2 day tour, we had the luxury of waiting for gaps in the weather rather than getting soaked to the bone at each location. It was torrential. Bring a rain coat is my only advice.

    We were very happy with the services of great Ocean Road Explorer. I knew they would be good on the great Ocean Road, given that would seem to be their main market, but they still gave us an excellent tour to Phillip island as well.

    They were also quite flexible when we contacted them, as we wanted a ‘day off’ to explore Melbourne, so we did the tour to phillip island on the Monday, explored Melbourne by ourselves on Tuesday, and then went on the 2 day portion of the tour to the great Ocean Road on Wednesday and Thursday, which all worked out well.

    We also saved quite a bit of money by booking directly (via a combination of phone and email) which is always a nice little bonus.

    Kanga Road tours is probably one of the most amazing, well-run companies I have come across in Australia, and I could not be any happier.
    Right from the start, I have had an amazing experience with Jolanta, who helped book my mum and myself on to this tour, and sent a reminder email of the meeting time, and place the day before.
    Starting early, we met Kris our guide, and set off with our small, intimate group of 4.
    As it was a small group, we were able to be flexible with our itinerary, and actually got hit more stops than on the itinerary. The day was well paced, with plenty of time to walk around, take photos, grab a bite to eat, but we packed a lot in.

    Kris is a wealth of information on just about anything. We thoroughly enjoyed his ongoing commentary throughout the trip on history, nature, interesting anecdotes, and dad jokes! A passionate guide who clearly knows his stuff, and loves what he does!

    I especially loved that we visited places less 'touristy' such as The Narana Aboriginal Centre, Apollo bay, and Port Campbell in addition to the idyllic natural structures promised on the Great Ocean Drive.

    Overall, a perfectly wonderful day, with a wonderful group. I highly recommend Kanga Road Tours!

    Fantastic tour! Our guide Peter was not only kind and friendly but also funny, had a huge knowledge, was really open and caring and tried everything to give us the best experience we could have! He even did some extra time to gibe us the opportunity to see both Koalas and Kangaroos. The landscapes have been amazing and there was enough time at every stop. Can recommend that tour for everyone!

    We recently took this private tour on a blustery winters day. Thankfully we dodged the rain. Partly down to luck and partly down to James (our guide) and his timing as he switched things around and used satellite on his phone to check the incoming weather storm patterns - very smart!

    The extra hour was certainly worth it as it is quite a long way down to the start of the road, and an even longer way back to Melbourne.

    I would absolutely recommend this company to family and friends. All in all, a great tour. Thanks, Tony & Sue :)
