  • 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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    - Jimmy was very energetic and kept the vibes nice during the tour. He was very accommodating and knowledgeable on random facts of Australia and of course the tour itself. It was a pleasure to tour with him

    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.

    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.

    James was fabulous and informative start to finish!! He picked us up in his clean, spacious and comfortable minivan from Melbourne CBD. We left at 6:30am to avoid the crowds at all the main stops!! He knew all the great places for food, coffee and clean bathrooms! James gave us great commentary at each stop filled with history and experiences. Highly recommend James!!

    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.

    Together with my elderly mother and teenage daughter, we had an informative and fun tour of Melbourne. Our guide was Jasmine and she was fantastic. A superb driver, flexible waiting for us as we stopped off at an enticing cake shop walking Acland St and so interesting with her local knowledge. It was a great day for all three of us, even in the rain! Thank you Jasmine.

    I was going to the Australian Open in Jan 2024 and wanted to take advantage of being in Melbourne and see some of the south coast scenery. I called a few tour companies, but I was late in planning the trip and all of them were booked for my available dates. I called Mark and he was booked as well, but he set me up with Peter who was a former tour guide that was now working part time. Mark handled all the details and everything went as planned. We did the trip in the reverse order of all the tour busses so we avoided all the crowds and had great day. Peter was great and we got to see the 12 (7 actually) apostles and all the beautiful cliffs and beaches along the south coast as well as some close encounters with koalas and kangaroos in the "wild". It was a great day and a highlight of the trip. Thanks to Mark for setting it all up and Peter for all his local knowledge on the tour and his recommendations for Melbourne places to see.

    We took a private tour with great ocean road explorer. Guide was good (so sorry I forgot name). We saw many things in the 12 hours. Many animals, such as koala and kangaroo. Beautiful sights. Especially 12 apostles. Beautiful. We ran on the beach. Ate the local foods. Very fun time.

    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 :)
