A fantastic experience

Ash was the perfect guide to our 2-day tour of The Great Ocean Road in February 2019. He was knowledgeable, friendly and good fun. He knew where the best places were to see the koalas and kangaroos and we saw them! The road trip itself was amazing! Looking over the beautiful turquoise ocean from the coach, seeing the waves crashing over the rocks was and rolling onto the sandy shores was truly wonderful. The Mackenzie Falls were a sight to behold too although the steps on the way back up to the coach tested our stamina! The whole two days were wonderful and we would strongly recommend this tour. Thank you Ash for a great time.

We were like 16 people 2 days tour from Melbourne to Adelaide - felt it was good to cover all without rush.One night you stay in hostel which was clean but you share with 3 or 5 more people. I would definitely recommend this trip. Bayan & Thor

Great Ocean Road was Great

I did the two day Great Ocean Road and Grampians tour on a friend's recommendation and I'm so glad I did! Our tour guide (Henning) was FANTASTIC - really knowledgable as well as friendly and personable. Each stop on the tour was beautiful and well worth the time - the views were incredible and even got to see some wild roos!

Great Ocean Road & Grampians

I did the two day tour, first day you see all the highlights of the Great Ocean Road and the second you visit the Grampians. We had an amazing hike there, which included climbing up on our hands and knees and crawling through a cave. And the view was so worth the climb. The tour guides who work for Wildlife are really good as well. They'll tell you background stories/ history of the places you'll visit, which gives everything a bigger meaning. You don't know that extra information, if you do the Great Ocean Road or the Grampians by yourself.

Great Ocean Road and Grampians adventure

On a crisp and beautiful Thursday morning we headed towards the Great Ocean Road and Grampians 2 day tour with Wildlife. Our tour guide David wasn't only a walking encyclopedia with a humorous twist, but also a master of time. The amount of places, views and wildlife we saw, and the stories we heard was incredible. There was no feeling of rush and we managed to miss the crowds each time! In addition to Great Ocean Road, we visited the astonishing Otway's rainforest, watched the sunrise in the Grampians, saw koalas, kengurus and cookabarras in their natural habitat, enjoyed the vibe of cute little beach towns and even went for a wine tasting on our way back. I wholeheartedly recommend this adventure!

2-day trip with Tim to Great Ocean Road and Grampians

Hi! I was on the 2-day trip with Tim to Great Ocean Road and Grampians.

I stayed at the Grampians Motel and it was GREAT... very clean, nicely appointed and had everything I needed. The bed was very comfortable.

I also want to apologize to Tim for rushing off without thanking him and saying goodbye. He was a terrific guide... very knowledgeable and concerned for our comfort. I LOVED how he used music to introduce a new story or area of interest. He learned our names and nationalities quickly and truly set a tone of congeniality. He also helped me with a couple technology issues with my phone, for which I am VERY grateful!

I thoroughly enjoyed the trip

by Timo on Wildlife Tours Australia

Highly recommended!! It was such a great weekend on the Great ocean road and the Grampians. Our tour guide Craig was so knowledgeable, he knew everything and tried to show us as much as possible!! We were just 8 people so very lucky... The accommodation for the night was very good, clean and comfortable. I also got picked up and dropped of near my hostel, so don't worry about it. This weekend couldn't have been better!

2 day great ocean road and grampians tour customer review

 

 

Danielle Konetski

Travelled in September 2019

@danielle.konetski

 

 

Before visiting Melbourne, all my friends back home said I had to see the Great Ocean Road.  As an avid hiker, I knew I wanted to check out the highly lauded Grampians National Park and get a feel for local wildlife, so finding the Wildlife Tours Australia 2-day tour combining the two felt like it was designed with me in mind.  As my visit coincided with the rainy late-winter season, I knew the chances were high that my trip would be cloudy and wet (and sure-enough it was) but I also knew getting at least a peak of these places would be better than nothing.

The morning of the first day arrived bright and early, and I dutifully loaded myself onto the nearly-full bus.  Incredibly, no one had claimed the passenger seat at the front of the bus and I leapt at the opportunity. Seriously people, if you get the chance, take it!  The views are expansive out the front window! And off we went from the city.

While Melbourne had been drizzly and grey, the bright jewel tones of the ocean seemed to repel the clouds and it nearly glowed from within.  Despite the low surf that morning, our morning stop found determined surfers and the swells offered up a good show while we sipped tea and nibbled on biscuits.  Back on the bus, we hugged the coast as our delightfully enthusiastic tour guide Fraser fed us facts on local wildlife and history of the area.
